Zero XU in new Bond movie?
« on: September 29, 2012, 11:53:42 PM »

Just saw a preview of new James Bond movie and swear I saw a Zero if just for a few frames. Anyone have access to the Net to check?

No. He was riding it. :D

I saw something a couple months ago about it being used in a rooftop chase scene.

Here's a still from the rooftop scene. Same color sceme but doesn't look like an X unless it's been heavily modified.

When I finally saw the movie last week I realized they were not Zeros... the vroooooom vroooom gave it away.

The movie was pathetic, by the way. Stupid story, lame script, ridiculous dialog. I wouldn't even rent it.

the "vroom vroom" was so obviously dubbed and not from the bikes being filmed, i don't think you can use that as a measure.  two strokes, four strokes, bikes, even boat motor noises.  typical hollywood.

i rather liked the movie.  probably one of the better bond films.  then again, i don't attend them expecting to see academy award material.

I haven't watched the movie, but my daughter did and she said she closed her eyes five times to avoid seeing disturbing sights during the show.  I plan to buy a CD of the movie when it comes out next year. Buying the movie is cheaper than going to the theater to see it and I can take a couple of days to watch it if I start to get bored.  Plus, the popcorn at my home is cheaper and not as greasy.   ;)
