Physicality is important for a Bond villain, but so is giving him something to say. Mr. Bautista is a strong screen presence but the script and his acting will make the difference on whether people are scared of him or snickering at him. Still, this is a good thing. He can fight and hold his own against Daniel Craig, who will return as the agent with the license to kill, 007. Sam Mendes will be returning as director and since he did such a phenomenal job with Skyfall, the new film should be as good.
