James Bond writer Anthony Horowitz: Skyfall made me angry
The author officially anointed as successor to James Bond creator Ian Fleming says modern 007 films have lost their way by making the spy too soft.
Anthony Horowitz, who was chosen by the Fleming estate to write the latest 007 novel, Trigger Mortis, said Skyfall just makes him "angry" because of the way it portrays 007 as "weak".
"Quantum of Solace just went wrong, Skyfall is my least favourite. Bond is weak in it, he has doubts - that's not Bond," he told The Mail on Sunday.
"Secondly, the villain wins. The villain sets out to kill M - the film finishes with the villain killing M. That made me angry."
