I would agree, especially for Elvis who is utterly forgettable.
:-P You made my day. Waiting for your topic hehe
Elvis is officially a henchman, whether you like him or not. I wouldn't even want to imagine what the movie would be without him.
15 seconds shorter? :D
*It will be titled "Elvis has left the building...but nobody noticed!" - A Defence of Elvis, the much-maligned Henchman of Quantum of Solace (2008).
I know. It's not as if there are, or ever have been, any other well known people called Elvis ;)
I think the best "henchman" was the thug who got blown up by Craig in Casino Royale.
He calls Universal Exports, which was a clumsy thing to do (and reprimands the guard).
He flips open a cell phone on a plane.
He eyes up a bodyguard.
He allows himself to be tripped by Fields.
He's used a live shield for Greene.
Well, that last option was perhaps the only thing Greene could benefit from.
Even Stamper did more for Graves than Elvis for Greene.
Not difficult in the era of no henchmen. Although 'henchman' is a bit rich. He's basically a background artist with a bowl cut. Hinx looks like he may be the first 'true' henchman of the era.
I agree with this. The only other person during Craig's era that I would remotely consider a henchman is Kratt from CR, but even then, he's given very little screentime and dialogue and has no bouts with Bond.
It's blatantly obvious that Elvis is a parody of the traditional Bond henchman. Whereas the henchman is typically highly skilled, useful, dangerous, and physically threatening, Elvis is the TOTAL OPPOSITE of all of those things. Even obvious comedy characters like Nick Nack at least did things to assist their master!
I think a lot of people didn't get the joke here.
