Topic: Seeing Red with Greene
IMHO, Dominic Greene could of been a great Bond villan,But got sold short by a very weak scheme and little screen time,with a bigger plot I think Matthew Almaric would of been on many members top ten lists of villans.
The Only two scenes thet he really gets to stand out are.
His meeting with Camille on the docks when he tells her about one of his mothers piano students and picking up an iron on overhearing her saying bad things about him,the implication is clear several broken fingers and perhaps a career ruined.
In the hotel telling the general if he dosen't believe how ruthless Quantum is,to kill him and keep the money.
Both scenes I really like and feel if he had of had the chance of a couple of more scenes with Bond either as a confrontation or interogation set up,Instead he's hardly used and is there as an almost secondary story.
They could of enlarged upon his plan on hording water But ont only in Bolivia but in many other countries at the same time as quantum planing a wide spread contamination attack.Dropped the Elvis character and and given Bond a more physcial side-kick to deal with.
I hated the Greene character on first seeing QOS but with repeated viewings He's growing on me, as I said I just feel sorry he has ended up as a minor villan.But on another post theres news of a deleted sceen at the end of QOS,so who knows mabey theres more of Green on the sure to be released special collector's dvd edition.
I'd be intrested to read other members views on him and where he'd fit in the list of Bond villans.:)
