Both could act very well. Pretty meaningless attack by Faulks.
I disagree, I think Naomie Harris gives the worst performance yet from an actress in the Craig era. She's awful when being flirtatious and funny; her entire performance reeks of 'trying too hard'.
I admit that perhaps I'd be kinder if she weren't playing Moneypenny and the role wasn't so important to the series and to me. In this regard, I blame EON and Mendes for casting her, knowing they need someone who shares real on-screen chemistry with Craig and utterly failing to pick the right person. Please bear in mind that I went into the film open-minded and optimistic.
As for the awful name reveal in the final scene, I don't blame her at all: that was really, really badly written.
Berenice Marlohe was excellent, and probably underused.
