Having the villains be obese or scarred and bald and having the hero survive by the use of gadgets itself became a cliché. The new films have tipped their hat to certain Bond-isms, but are more hard-edged and NON-cliché, don't you think ?
Some people want their Bond light-hearted. As for me, having grown up on the books and the films as they were released, which started out with a hard-edge and toughness, I am quite happy with the Craig films. By the way -- LeChifre in CR DID have tears of blood, the henchman ("Elvis") in QOS DID have a strange haircut and demeanor and his boss had an odd way of speaking and displayed a Napoleonic complex, and Javier Bardem's terrific portrayal in SF DID include a jaw and dental issue which, when revealed, was quite gruesome. Not to mention the blonde hair on a guy who is clearly not blonde (shudder !). So, when you get past the initial impression, there IS a use of the old patterns even now. Depending on your point of view, they are not as blatant as with some earlier villains, at least, not until certain moments.
The Bond films, in going back to a harder, tougher edge -- which the series itself displayed long before Bourne -- is bound to catch the "copying Bourne" criticism. The Bourne films are fresher in people's memories than FRWL, OHMSS and (but for the dumb stuff with the too-young girl) FYEO. The cinematic techniques employed are not unique to Bourne. Even so, the Craig films, with their plots, locations and characters, are much more exotic and glamorous -- definitive Bond characteristics -- than the Bournes.
While I'm at it -- how about the Bourne films having their OWN worn out clichés ? How many repressed memories of the same root problem does this guy have ? Did it seem to anyone else that they dredged up more than one crucial episode that gave him that amnesia-causing trauma ? How many times can you make the same film about a guy figuring out his past ? It was darn near a reboot each time ! Don't get me wrong -- I enjoyed them -- but that plot wears thin after awhile. Either he moves on or has new adventures.
