Not a fan of moving cameras or rapid editing for no purpose whatsoever. Lock the camera down and give us a medium shot. Reserve the fireworks for dramatic moments. Nor do I need over-the-shoulder close-ups every time someone speaks.
I would tend to agree.

But one could say that after five series all done with a relatively sedate style, that the fluid movements of the latest film is welcome.

I see it, and I agree in some respects, but if the drama is compelling, you don't need fancy moves.
