And it wasn't even his movie!

Casino Royale director, Martin Campbell, went on the attack against the James Bond reboot's sequel Quantum of Solace, calling it a "mess."

Directed by Marc Foster, Campbell criticized the movie, saying:

"Oh, I thought it was lousy. And hopefully this next one will be terrific. Sam Mendes is directing it and I’m sure it’ll be terrific.

I just thought the story was pretty uninteresting. I didn’t think the action was related to the characters. I just thought overall it was a bit of a mess really."

Wow, those are some fighting words for a movie that isn't even yours!

Granted, we are looking forward to Sam Mendes' vision of Bond, but still…harsh, much??
