    I personally think that all Pierce Brosnan Bond films should be erased from the film vaults forever: Not because he was a bad Bond, in fact he had the potential to be a good one, it’s just that the films were so badly written and made.

    I agree, Die Another Day is a bit cartoonish

    All of the Brosnan films apart from goldeneye cos that spawned a great computer game

    Let’s face it, they’re all shite really. We forgive far too much because they’re “Bond” films.

    die another day is ludicrously bad, madonna ‘acting’ doesnt bode well for any film

    Quantum of Solace was seriously sh*t.

    It was just a collection of very loosely connected, cartoon-like ‘action’ scenes with a lame, instantly forgettable plot. Daniel Craig isn’t anything special either.

    I won’t be wasting my time and money on the next one when/if it is ever made.

    Worst is probably On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. George Lazenby combined with bad special effects. 🙁
    Die Another Day they spent all the money on the car chase and there was nothing left for special effects!

    My favourite is probably The Living Daylights – I thought TD made quite a good Bond actually. Plus it’s got Maryam d’Abo in it which is a definite bonus.

    There is no ‘worst Bond film’ just the odd one that is inferior/superior, how very dare you. The Living Daylights was s**t though

    Roger Moore brought a much needed dash of humour to the role. You can all go on about how awesome Connery was, and he was very good, but he was too much of a man to carry that off. And Never Say Never again was cack.

    Totally agree and it was boring/slow and went on for ages!

    S.C. was a great all rounder and typical 60’s tv spy, (NSNA was poo)
    G.L. had the looks but that is it,
    R.M. added the funny – not all laughed…
    P.B. was ideal for the time and Golden Eye was fresh,
    T.D. was well he had an English accent but lack of budget although he was
    probably closest to Ian Fleming’s idea,
    and D.C. is quite is good but has the script and big budget to support him in Casino Royale which was great!

    although Quantum of porridge wasn’t so great.

    Tomorrow Never Dies was the one I really didn’t get – the story didn’t appeal at all. Not suggesting that the story is the point of James Bond films but still.

    Quantum of Solace – good actor wasted.No one really expected much of Moore, and they weren’t disappointed.

    OHMSS one of the best – if only because it sticks to the plot of the book.

    Octopussy. There were several preposterous scenes, but the one where Bond had to drive an Alfa Romeo thirty miles does it for me.

    Indeed. To be honest the book is a bit naf, and the film is actually quite close to the book but when he addresses the camera. WTF??? Terrible terrible film. Most of the others are less cringe worthy and generally entertaining.

    Agree with loddrik. Not since I was a nipper and my auntie took me to see From Russia with Love, have I thought a Bond film was any good.

    I liked OHMSS, despite the awfulness of Lazenby, the writing and plot was tight. And Diana Rigg was proper fit too…

    The latest one was pretty bad, but not as bad as that Pearce Brosnan one where he goes to the arctic, shocking.

    Love a bit of Roger Moore – takes Bond to almost parodic levels but very entertaining.

    casino royale – pish, the daniel craig one, not the david niven one, that was meant to be funny

    It was Ian Fleming’s actually. He wanted Roger Moore for the first bond film but Moore was tied up doing the Saint at the time so the producers went for some Scottish guy called Sean Connery.

    Octopussy, by far the worst bond ever. Ok so the others all had bad bits, and some dodgy acting and one liners, but octopussy had a troupe of circus artists storming a palace and bond arriving late in a hot-air balloon piloted by Q… ridiculous!

    You can’t slate either of the daniel craig films because he’s clearly the only bond actor who’s read any of the books.

    i can slate quantum of bobbins because A) it was bobbins,

    and B) it wasn’t funny about it either.

    im bored of watching Bond villains ‘lairs’ explode in the final sequence, i have never heard of exploding concrete, but it seems to be the building material of choice for the aspiring super-villain.

    I’ve not seen Die Another Day, what’s that all about, I might be in danger of having my british citizenship revoked for having not seen every Bond film. But I think I’ll not be rushing to fix that. At least it inspired the reset.

    Quantum of Solace was just a mess really, it did have some decent bits but it was all over the place. But I can’t think of any redeeming features of Octopussy, it’s just awful. More like some comedy knock-off of a Bond film. Tarzan ffs.

    Well there you go Loddrik; we can agree on something at least! 🙂

    They are shite, but quite good fun, mostly. Just a bit of not particularly intellectually demanding entertainment. The more recent ones have got up their own arse a bit mind.

    All are however better than any of the Bourne films. I have not been able to watch any of those without falling to sleep.

    B) it wasn’t funny about it either.

    I reckon this where where it went wrong right from the start. For some inexplicable reason, the director/screen writer/actor, thought that adding a bit of humour into things would make it all work nicely. Connery was there telling us all that he might retire to Japan when finding out men always come first (oh the irony) to the teeth shatteringly cringe fest that was Moore telling us that Jaws only popped in for a quick bite.

    It probably attracted a huge audience that originally wouldn’t be interested in bond films but it made for less that gripping viewing.
    Flemming’s bond was a tourtered soul, dark and cynical, a ruthless killer for whom murder was a mere afterthought. An anti-hero, nothing like the film bond, apart from possibly Craig.

    Die another day is just a bloody awful film full stop. Dreadful. Dont mind the RM lot, as they are knowingly silly – although Sheriff Pepper was a huge mistake

    Die another day was the jump the shark (or invisible car) moment of the series which is saying something given how exceedingly silly some of the other films were (almost any with RM for example)
    Im enjoying the reboots though, Daniel Craig makes an excellent bond and i can only hope the next film gets better writing than quantum of solace which had some great moments i just wish the storyline had been one of them.

    There was one with an invisible Aston Martin. I can suspend my disbelief a lot of the time, but that was the final straw.

    Quantum of Solace, hope for the next one they manage to hire a camerman without Tourette’s. And a scriptwriter.
