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??
