Greatest James Bond Directors

The Top TenXW

1Martin Campbell (Goldeneye, Casino Royale)

Both of his films are remarkable achivements of his and to the Bond franchise. To fans of the 007 franchise, Campbell is a bona fide hero and it's a no-hard time to see why. - TechnoTarantino

2Terence Young (Dr No, From Russia With Love, Thunderball)V1 Comment
3Lewis Gilbert (You Only Live Twice, The Spy Who Loved Me, Moonraker)

Following on from Young and Hamilton, Gilbert immediately set about making one of the best of the Sean Connery films, in the shape of the excellent You Only Live Twice (even if modern sensibilities have to cringe slightly at the idea of Bond masquerading as Asian). He then returned in the 1970s and promptly did the same for Roger Moore, retaining the better comic sensibilities of the previous films but restoring some much-needed cool and class to the character in The Spy Who Loved Me. - TechnoTarantino

4John Glen (For Your Eyes Only, Octopussy, A View to a Kill, The Living Daylights, Licence to Kill)
5Guy Hamilton (Goldfinger, Diamonds are Forever, Live and Let Die, The Man With The Golden Gun)
6Peter R. Hunt (On Her Majesty’s Secret Service)
7Sam Mendes (Skyfall, Spectre)

I honestly felt that Spectre was kind of boring because of being poorly scripted and for it's confusing tone. But visually, Skyfall is a true wonder. The script tells a moving, thematically resonant and intelligent story, and features superbly written scenes. - TechnoTarantino

Undeniably the most visually artistic Bond films, even if not with the stongest storyline.

8Marc Forster (Quantum of Solace)
9Roger Spottiswoode (Tomorrow Never Dies)
10Lee Tamahori (Die Another Day)
