Way, way too hard on Bond wasn't it?
I mean... I'm sure that this is very subjective. I'm sure that some people watch NTTD and think it felt fine to them.
Back when Skyfall came out I felt like that was too hard on the character also but this movie seems to actively dislike him, to be honest.
I feel like he's intentionally portrayed as quite weak, disliked and desperate for female attention, at least relative to the previous movies.
Nomi is so abrasive and no good reason is given for it either. She seems to be fairly consistently given the upper hand over Bond too. And what is with her dress sense? She didn't look like she fit into the movie at all.
For me all this kind of spoiled the film because it was so relentless. It makes it hard to really appreciate the other aspects of the movie, at least for me.
And of course the ending only added to all that, but by that point I'd kind of mostly given up on the film anyway.
Don't get me wrong I love loads of Bond movies. I've seen about 16 now including Never Say Never Again and have enjoyed nearly all of them.
If they must stick to their guns on this new very "politically correct" Bond then I think it would be best to just omit the sexual advances altogether instead of making him look rejected all the time, and to drop the constant jabs and passive aggression because it spoils the mood of the film.
Sorry for the long post! I'll leave it here I think :)
