worst Bond 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.Posted 7 years agocrazy-legsSubscriber
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.Posted 7 years agoFrankensteinMember

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.Posted 7 years agotomhughes46Subscriber

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.Posted 7 years agouponthedownsMember
Any with Roger Moore in.
+1. Whose idea was it to cast him as James Bond ffs?
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.Posted 7 years agoahwilesSubscriber
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.Posted 7 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
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.Posted 7 years ago
They are all pretty shite tbh.
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.Posted 7 years agosamuriMember

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.Posted 7 years ago
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.Brother_WillSubscriber
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)Posted 7 years ago
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.
