007 Ribs?

Well, the new Bond film launches today over here. I have seen a couple of trailers and of course there is the mandatory boat chase sequence.

I noticed some serious looking ribs in the trailers, but just brief glimpses of course.

Has anyone seen the flic? What are the boats?

Good on them - nothing wrong with leveraging everything you can to drum up a bit of business in the current climate.

That's going to get expensive if they plan on blowing up a few boats on every trip!

Damn right!

Spotted a chance to get national publicity for free and took it, even better when the same article is repeated 3 times.

Plus the camera crew and reporter wouldn't be complaining either. Wazzing about the Thames.

Think one of them had a 150hp outboard but as we were sat at the front (big mistake) we couldn't make out what the fook was going on during the action scenes... it was just one big blur
