    I miss Mathis. I really felt like he could have been a much, much bigger character, only to be scrapped in such a short amount of his arrival into QoS.

    You're right. He should have stayed there and help arrange the funeral. The fact that he will be connected to this dead agent will not blow his cover, naturally. Because in the world of espionage, you always treat a dead body with the dearest respect.

    Then why move the body at all?
    Bond went out of his way to DISRESPECT the body!

    How? Mathis wouldn't have minded what Bond did with him, as he said. Bond even holds him in his arms as he dies - yes, how disrespectful.

    The one thing I've been confused about in the past, though: how do they know Bond shot and killed the cops if there were no witnesses - did they just already have it called in with the entire police force? Also, does he take Mathis' money because he needs it, or because he wants it to appear as if it was a robbery?

    Either way, Mathis wouldn't care because he is still helping Bond complete his mission, or he is merely moving Mathis to a more comfortable place than the street.

    What a detailed, insightful, well-written post. Thank you for broadening my view on the world and the life of James Bond.

    Throw the body out of sight. That way Bond can buy himself some time. He may only win a few minutes but things may depend upon exactly that.

    I've got Michael Bay and Justin Bieber on the phone right now. They promise they will make you an unforgettable Bond flick. ;-)

    i dont care about yuor hostilety... do not harrass me.

    my idea.. Mathis does good job explaining for the laymen what going on in the story.. well, bring him back in the next movie so it not so confusing.. maybe the dupster garbage bin he is in, well it has some new medicine, and some got on Mathis and brought him back. bond wil be surprised.

    BNond: "No it cannot Be... mathis.. my friend."

    There is some medicine in the bin that magically makes Mathis's five or six bullet wounds disappear?!?! Oh, you must be joking! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! :)) =))

    @TOFANA007, that cannot be a realistic idea or thought process. Somehow, the producers are incompetent...yet your idea is that Mathis found some secret happy medicine that revives him and he makes a grand return, even after his confirmed death.

    Right.

    How does "hiding" the body... in full view of any polcie inspection... "buy him time"?

    This is making excuses for a terrible film that insults the viewers and fans... it is a true slap in the face to lifelong Bond fan like myself...

    TOFANA that is coincidence...

    I too am stuck in my house. I am obese yes and my mother look after me but it IS ONLY because I got a knee injury playing sports in 2005. This is what developed me into a 007 super fan :)

    Are you a bloody advertiser for Verizon now?! Am I the only one that thinks these two are the same user? They keep commenting just minutes apart, long enough for the user to log off one account and on to another.

    Nope I think so too. Doesn't @pierceuhh already have another account too? That means he has 3.

    My friends...gents..chaps... I implore you

    I can confirm that @Pierceuhhh and and @TOFANA007 are two different internet users....there's no secrets on this front. They are quickly becoming trusted members here on the boards.

    I am sorry to my fans i have not been posting here recently (Iam having a bad experience (I am battling cancer)....like Robin Gibb = I draw strength from his personel battle (but he deid now?) erm..not sure. Is there perhaps a Gibb curse? Barry is next

    Then why does he sit around cradling Mathis for about 1min+ and then stand around talking to Camilla next to the dumpster?
