The Top Ten
Sean Connery is the best one for the movie role! All others only impersonators, really.
My name is Bond... James Bond. Aah! Sean Connery... best James Bond of all time. So handsome, suave, sophisticated, intelligent & his almighty sexy voice!
The ORIGINAL and the BEST James Bond ever. None of the others come close to him.
I agree there all good if I'd rate them it would be
10. Terence young
9. Barry nelson
8. David niven
7. George lazenby
6. Peter Sellers(the movie was crap, sellers was great)
5. Daniel Craig(he is good but we got wait and see skyfall and then maybe he'll be higher)
4. Pierce Brosanan(all movies were bad except for goldeneye that movie was awesome, brosan has all the other bonds features, connery and moores charm, dalton and craigs coldness and George lazenby's forgettableness.
3. Timothy Dalton( a very underrated bond. His movies are good. He is great)
2. Roger Moore(He has the best charm, he has the most movies, but was not as good as connery)
1. Sean Connery(great, original, if any other actor was before him he probably wouldn't have been the best)
I think his portrayal of the character is the most realistic and least sensationalized.
Personally I think that Sean Connery has nothing on this guy
The Daniel Craig James Bond movies are the ones that got what I like to call The Star Trek Treatment, the older Bond movies, like the old Star Trek movies, were movies that relied more on dialogue and story rather than action, the action was there but it was a little more layed back and relaxed, whereas the Daniel Craig Bond movies, Like the new Star Trek movies, are much more action heavy, in the end it really comes down to what you prefer, the slower burn of the older movies, or the fast paced action tone of the newer movies
I like how Daniel Craig is a more focused actor towards the actual action scenes and his seriousness always makes me feel like he can never lose. The reason he's number three on this list and not 1 or 2 is pretty easy to figure out.
1.Blonde hair, James Bond always has black
2. Not as smooth with the ladies
3. A James Bond may not be as serious as him
Well I think all 3 of those reasons that I've heard from people are stupid
1. The blonde hair doesn't bother me
2. I don't think he's to bad with the ladies
3. I love that kind of seriousness in a Bond
Vote for Daniel Craig!
Pierce brosnan is one of the best looking James Bond there is. His attitude is just perfect for the role and his movies are just, awesome. Please vote for him because he is the best James Bond for the role.
Pierce Brosnan is probably the prettiest of them all who has played bond, but that's not the reason I think he's the best, the reason for that is because he combined all the elements of the previous bonds together, he has the charm of Connery, the gift of comedy that Moore had, and the darkness of Dalton. And while Timothy Dalton is my favorite James bond and I do think he's the best as well, Pierce Brosnan has to be my second favorite.
He is the best such a good actor he makes me laugh smile the best bond no one can beat him I do like the other bonds but pierce Brosnan is best so far love his movies makes them his own best James bond over which he was still James bond!
Top 3 James Bond Movies are Brosnan's:
-The World Is Not Enough (10/10)
-Tomorrow Never Dies (10/10)
-Die Another Day (9.5/10)
Roger is my favorite James Bond. I think Sean Connery was original and very unique Bond; Pierce Brosnan had the best look; D. Craig is probably the hottest; T. Dalton is definitely the most underrated and overlooked.
Anyway, are. Moore is still my number 1. He added a great humor to this role even though critics didn't like it - Irina2932
His version of Bond is charming, debonair, witty and cunning. These are elements I like to see in Bond even though may not be Ian Fleming's actual Bond. It was hard to find a replacement for Sean Connery (just look at George Lazenby), but he did a great job replacing Sean Connery and is the only older Bond actor to successfully replace a younger actor. His legacy of 7 Bond films reflects his success. I don't know why he's underrated so much.
I think what did it for me was that he wasn't trying to be Connery, he portrayed Bond in his own British way... And he was the Saint!
Brought something different for viewers, especially in the era where Sean has just made Bond his own... Roger was charismatic, quick, physically better and refreshingly different...V 24 Comments
The most faithful and believable James Bond portrayal, I love Connery and Brosnan but Dalton is easily the best.
Has anyone here read the source material? Bond was not wrote as a wise cracking smart ass, he was dangerous and capable of going off on rampages. Dalton has been the only Bond to capture this. Although I would caveat that Craig has started to channel the best parts of Daltons performances. - MickDee
Timothy Dalton's Bond is so underrated. He may have been tougher, but he was definitely a better bond and played him the way Ian Fleming would have wanted him to be portrayed.
Timothy dalton is not only the best looking bond but he also does the best performance as bond and just that makes you feel like he is really james bond and that's why he is my favorite sure he only played in two films but those two bond films The Living Daylights and Licence to Kill are probably two of my favorite bond films in case your'e wondering what's the other one well if you must know it's GOLDFINGERR! Sorry.V 17 Comments
I regard George Lazenby James Bond right up there with Sean Connery's. Don't get me wrong if you push me and you don't have to push me too hard my favorite of all time is Sean Connery' James Bond. But my list would be 1. Sean Connery, 2.George Lazenby, 3. Timothy Dalton 4. Daniel Craig, all the rest of actors you put them in whatever place you want, for me these four are the best that did Ian Fleming's James Bond justice.
He is not that good
The worst - Userguy44
Totally underrated. Remember OHMSS was his first movie EVER! The movie like the book is tough, Bond shows his human side and actually falls in love. Marries and than has Tracy die on the wedding day. New actor and a very different characterisation threw audiences and the style of the film very "60s" makes it dated and a little silly looking now.
Worst of all George got some terrible advice being convinced the series would not last by an agent and told to leave the series and try to cash in on his sudden fame. He opted out of his three picture deal. WORST ADVICE EVER!
He was tough, athletic and his acting would have matured. We would have got the three sort arc like the books and they could have been great! I mean Daniel Craig era stories great (though maybe not the acting quality George was a novice). The two great book to screen adaptations that could have been.
I don't know what to say but he's not a great choice for a bond actor
Way to old I mean how chould he be in a James Bond movie
Okay. Nothing special he's handsome but should be higher
