    Exclamation The Best Bond Ever?

    A few people have complained about Daniel Craig being cast as the new Bond, after seeing Layer Cake (good film) I reckon he would be pretty good... but who do people think was the best Bond?

    I still say Connery simply because of the way he 'handled' his female co-stars...

    PS I have left out George Lazenby as he only did the one film

    Roger Moore for me.

    Daniel Craig will prove to be the best though I reckon.

    Hes from Chester by the way.

    The worst has got to be Pierce Brosnan, too smug for my liking.

    I think Connery is by far the best Bond so far, I dont understand why people are slatting Daniel Craig, give the guy a chance, see the film then decide, apparently at least looks wise he is the closest to how Bond was decribed in the books

    It's a tough one. Connery is Scottish, so that's him out of the window. Moore was far too comical to be taken seriously. For me it comes down to Dalton and Brosnan.

    Dalton has the advantage that he actually looks like he'd kill someone and, after all, Bond is an assassin.

    Brosnan however has the class.

    For me, class wins every time.

    I think Brosnan had the sophistication that was required, he was also smug but it worked!

    I think bias may come into it depending on which "era" you became a bond fan. I only started really watching bond when Roger Moore was Bond, so I'm inclined to like him more. SC was "before my time", and TD and PB and DC are now pretenders to the throne.

    I agree there as when I was a kid Roger was Bond so i allways prefered him but as I got older and saw the older films, Roger seemed like an old man in flares in comparison to Connery..

    Connery was the hardest/coldest, and probably the best classic spy, but as with A4Quattro, I prefer Moore as he was in my favourite era of Bond.

    Live And Let Die is my favourite Bond anyway, mainly due to the boats and soundtrack

    Brosnan revived it, brought it back to life. He was smug, but wouldn't you be if you were that cool.

    Ok, Ok, if you won't let me vote for Mr Lazenby, then I'll have to vote for Connery.

    Having said that my favourite movie is The Spy Who Love Me.

    Roger Moore for me, I just like the cool and comical Bond, Brosnan is second.

    good dismissal!!

    Roger is too "dandyish" I think thats the best way to describe him, see connery would smack his b*tch up (not that I condone such behavior) if he had to and then give her one once she has told him where the microchip is. That is what Bond is all about.

    got to say overall best Bond is and always was Sean Connery and I'm only old enough to have seen Roger Moore in cinemas, too 70s

    favourite film is OHMSS and a great bond IMO was George Lazenby

    no one's gone for David Niven, in original Casino Royale

    isn't that's the "Bond" Daniel Craig has to beat??

    You missed George Lazenby and David Niven, albeit they only did one film each and the David Niven film was a spoof!

    Brosnan for me,but it could just be timing.
    His performances co-incided with more 'believable' Bond storylines,where he didn't come out of fights without a scratch or any creases in his suit.

    I think Craig is an excellent choice.

    Ditto Re: Clive Owen, think he really 'looks' the part if that makes sense. Best Bond was without a doubt Connery imo, and Thunderball the best film. 'Disco Volante' was the coolest villains toy, the shark pool, that film had it all, and best of all-Domino. My God she was unbelievable!
