“Flame me all you want, but I saw Quantum of Solace over the weekend, and it was exactly what I was afraid of when they hired the stunt coordinator from Bourne: a bunch of blurry, shakey, incomprehensible action sequences. GARBAGE. This is THE WORST trend in movies out there right now. It doesnâ€™t make it exciting to cut together a bunch of blurry whatsits like a hand shifting gears or a foot on the gas pedal. Action movies are in the details. If you just cut together a bunch of crazy closeups super fast and then end on a slow-mo of the good guy getting away or the bad guy dying, itâ€™s insulting to the audience. Itâ€™s like telling us weâ€™re on a need-to-know basis with the movie weâ€™re watching. If youâ€™re going to make it totally ambiguous as to how things happen, you might as well just cut to black and put up a title card that says ‘he got away.’ Also, itâ€™s half-assed. F-cking choreograph that shit you lazy motherf-ckers.”
