Record-breaking Bond opening gathers mixed reviewsNovember 3rd, 2008 - 1:21 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, November 3 (ANI): The Quantum of Solace, the latest James Bond movie, rocked the box office collecting a staggering 4.9million pounds on its opening day though evoking mixed reviews.
The 22nd film in the hit series, released in the UK on October 31, displaced former record-holder Harry Potter And The Goblet of Fires collection of 4.25million pounds.
However, unlike its prequel Casino Royale, which had raked in 2.9million pounds on its first day of release while becoming the most popular film in the UK in 2006, the Quantum hasnt struck the same chord with the reviewers.
The film that sees Daniel Craigs second performance as James Bond, who is seeking revenge for his slain girlfriend, Vesper Lynd, has had varied reactions.
The expository dialogue scenes can be dull, and cram in so many machinations and double-crossings that it’’s easy to lose track of who’’s duping whom, the BBC quoted the Daily Telegraph as reporting.
But Times titled the movie as an intriguing watch adding that Really, nobody does it better than the new 007. (ANI)
