If they replace the action scenes with actual spying, I'd be OK with it. Some of the old Bond movies had a bit of a slower pace. I think From Russia with Love should be the ideal balance. But that still has a couple of cool action scenes (the Gypsy fight and the Train scene). I'm sure those won't go out the window.
That is, assuming there's any truth to these statements at all.
Agreed. I could accept them scaling back the action scenes in reasonable measure. Sometimes I think they can carried away and go too far. On second viewing Quantum Of Solace
wasn't bad, but some of the action went too far.
Recently watched Dr. No
and there's a lot of good stuff in it although some of the action now seems rather dated. But From Russia With Love
and Casino Royale
each have a nice balance and I wouldn't mind seeing more of that.
