Varda Bridge Fall
I found out that the height of the Varda railway viaduct is 322 feet. Does anyone have a problem with Bond falling from the top of it (and add another dozen feet since he is on top of the train) and surviving this fall into the river? This is as barmy to me as Berry diving off the top of the cliff in DAD from what the camera's viewpoint looked to be about the same ridiculous height. Why do the filmmakers put in this Road Runner/Coyote garbage? Am I to understand they went to the viaduct and looked down and actually believed this was a plausible plot point? They go to such great pains and expense to make the films look real, then they ruin them by injecting cartoon physics. Why? I know that the scenery is visually impressive, but couldn't they have had Bond get shot but fall over onto the roof of the car and knock the villain off the train, then show it pass through another tunnel and as it exits show no sign of Bond? At least it would be left up to my imagination as to what happens to him, instead of the cartoon fall we see in the trailer.
