@pseudonym: Not 100% serious, no.
@Gibonius. More like that, yep. At least they could've sealed the door leading to the subway..
Watched the movie again today.
Product placement I've noticed:
Adidas (shoes during the assessment)
New Balance (same)
Courvoisier VSOP (office, M's home)
Heineken (Bed, bar, MI6 during the creation of the trap for Silva) -- all times not fully visible though
Omega (multiple times, most prominent in the opening scene in the "digger")
Coke Zero (MI6, during the hacking scene of Silva's computer)
And obviously Sony. Xperia (S?) and Vario. Most annoying, hardly a scene without it)
So, I know now what bugs me about the movie. First of all, the second third feels like 24 to me. More importantly though, Silva doesn't make sense to me. I mean, seriously? That guy had years of planning, takes a huge risk by getting captured etc. Nearly gets killed in the subway escape (why doesn't Bond shoot when Silva talks about the surprise or whatever he had for him and reaches for his "walky-talky" to press a button?). Anyway, all of this just to storm the court and chaotically try to shoot her? Really? That must have been the most clever and most promising plan that apparent genius could've thought of... Likewise at Skyfall. He first sends a gazillion of trained mercenaries and just assumes that one old women, one old man and Bond with hardly any equipment will get rid of them without M being killed? Same for when he gets there with a helicopter. He didn't want them to hurt her ("She's for me"). Really doesn't make sense. Why the hurry? He's waited for years and then can't wait for a couple days for them to get bored in Skyfall?
