Welcome to the first day of Movie Fanatic’s 007 Days of James Bond! As the new film is merely a week away, we will spend the next seven days exploring the best moments in the film series, from best Bond girls, best gadgets (check out the Movie Fanatic Round Table Best Bond villain!) and of course we start off determining who was the best Bond!
James Bond is back to save the day in Skyfall and as the franchise celebrates 50 years of thrills — we turn to our readership to once and for all anoint which actor is the best Bond. Each performer put their own stamp on the character, and thus the films that they starred in.
Sean Connery famously originated the role with a brash toughness, George Lazenby gave emotion to the role for his one-off, Roger Moore went kitsch, Timothy Dalton gave a Shakespearean Bond, Pierce Brosnan brought back the tuxedo-sporting swagger and Daniel Craig has managed to incorporate all of the above while still carving out a stellar turn as the man with a license to kill.
Be sure to come back tomorrow as we announce the Top 10 Bond Girls as Movie Fanatic’s 007 Days of Bond continues!
Who is the best Bond?
