I'll say it. Before Casino Royale there hadn't been an actual VERY GOOD Bond film since For Your Eyes Only. They became increasingly generic action films until the reboot.

Brosnan would have done a lot better had he taken the role when they originally considered him. Personally I thought he was better in The Tailor of Panama than anything he did as Bond.

There two weeks into filming apparently, with a release due in November. Apparently the movie picks up two hours after Casino Royale finished, which did kick ass. He's an awesome Bond.

However I agree with lazarus, that'll be a working title. It's shithouse.

The only Brosnan Bond film I enjoyed was Goldeneye. Everything besides that was pure meh.

Sean Connery.

Although, if Craig's great in this one, too, I may have to reconsider.

I've always been a Roger Moore supporter, in defiance of the majority. My favorite Bond film is The Spy Who Loved Me.

Fuck Connery, he has no more range then Moore, yet is overrated as some kind of god. He's a chauvenistic wife beater who's also a sellout, and an undeserving Oscar winner to boot.

Next.

As someone who grew up with Moore's Bond and liked Brosnan (hey, Goldeneye was a good start but later movies got weaker), and at the risk of Connery supporters backlash, I'll go with Craig. I feel like he's the best actor out of all the Bonds so far. He is convincing in action scenes, he gets the emotions down plus in the Vesper/train scenes he can flirt-act too.

It seems all actors either go the route of "charmer Bond" (Moore, Brosnan, Lazenby) or the "tough Bond" (Connery, Dalton, Craig).

Brosnan annoyed me, and I haven't seen any of his movies.

Craig was awesome, there was no cheesiness in Casino Royale.

Another vote for Connery here, I just think he embodied the role in a way that nobody else has quite managed to. He nailed everything, the charisma, the wit, the romance, the violence, you really did believe in him. Plus he had the good fortune to be Bond right at the very beginning when they making some of the very best films of the whole canon. I still rate From Russia With Love as the all-time greatest Bond film.
