- The next Bond
McAvoy would be a good bond, aye, though he might struggle to fill Craig’s shoes since he’s brought the physical sides out so well… but lets keep Craig for a bit longer- after all,he’s the best there’s ever been 😉
(OK, he’s maybe further from the original character than Dalton. Don’t care. These are films not books)Posted 4 years agoernie_lynchMember
Now, as anyone who knows the original Fleming books will realise
Fleming saw his Bond character and novels, although clearly rather fantastic, as fairly serious propositions. The films, well certainly the early ones, saw it all very much in terms of tongue in cheek with a lot of comedy potential. And quite right too. It’s a shame that the later films started to take the absurd character of Bond in a much more serious light.Posted 4 years agocrazy-legsSubscriber
Agree about Dalton (there don’t seem to be too many of us though).
I think The Living Daylights is the best of the Bond films. Skyfall is probably the best of the DC ones.
But God, there have been some mediocre ones over the years, you only realise when you watch some of them for about the 4th time and wonder “what were they thinking?!”Posted 4 years agocamo16Member
+1 for Dalton… And for Living Daylights until they go to Afghanistan and the movie goes tits up.
Licence to Kill is cool too.
To be honest, I’m not really feeling it for Craig. Casino Royale was pretty good, but Quantum of Solace and Skyfall IMO are just okay.

Connery – well, he made the role and the role kinda made him
Dalton – closest to Fleming’s idea
Craig – second closest
