Absolutely! Road to Perdition had that nice, intense feeling throughout and its action scenes were very effective and even unbearable. It'll be nice to see Mendes and Craig working together again as well. It's great to see the Bond franchise is attracting these A-grade, inspired choices for directors.

See Smiert's post above for a well written response to your concerns. The man was a great visual sense and has proven he can form a great, emotional action flick. Given a solid script, I think he's a terrific choice
