Topic: Jamaica returning for B24

Do you guys wanna see Jamaica again for Bond 24?
Fleming wrote 6 stories based in the country and he loved it and I would quite like to see it again on screen. Parts of LALD were filmed there but Bond's only been there once in films with DN. Anyone agree with me?

Nope. Totally disagree. Jamaica was part of the British Empire back in 1962 and so Bond visiting Government House was like he was visiting part of the UK.

These days, Jamaica is a very different dangerous place where violent crime is rife and institutionalised homophobia is commonplace. I for one don't want to see either the fictional character of Bond or the producers supporting that regime, just as an 1980s Bond rightly didn't visit South Africa.

One place Bond has never visited is Australia.  I would live to see a boat chase or similar in Sydney Harbour.

Don't particularly want to see Bond in any of the caribean countries
for a while (sort of been there done that got the t-shirt) also Jamaica
has the suggestion that the bad guy/guys could be black , although there
are many fine black actors S.L.J,  Foxx, Smith, ect I don't want to see a stereotype

Homophobic, racist, sexist, no longer really part of the British Empire - I agree, Australia has no place in a Bond movie!   ajb007/biggrin

Then again, Haiti wasn't a bastion of civil rights and that featured prominently in QoS. Or somewhere that stood in for Haiti.

around Goldeneye.  ajb007/biggrin
