I don't know, I just expect some escapism in my Bonds.
Yeah but at the same time you can't get too outlandish with everything. The parkour sequence in Casino Royale was fairly outlandish but for the most part i liked the realism about it. Die Another Day went too far with the CGI and gimmicky Bond stuff (invisible car, ice palace, asian becoming caucasian, satellite made from diamonds
). The reboot has done a good job getting it back on track and now they have a good platform to go from.
