From his first appearance in the 1953 novel Casino Royale, James Bond (or 007) has defined the image of a suave, smooth-talking secret agent. Through six actors, dozens of films, various novels, and plenty of great videogames, James Bond has entertained millions of fans over the last several decades. However, there's no question that 007 has achieved his greatest notoriety through the Bond films. The recent ascension of Daniel Craig and the smash hits Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace have helped to maintain the series' status as the highest grossing action film series of all time. Ultimately, only one of these film can claim the title of the greatest Bond movie.
My personal pick would be You Only Live Twice:
You Only Live Twice is the perfect Bond flick. It manages to combine a crazy villain, a wide assortment of gadgets, wacky settings, plenty of action, and the great performance of Sean Connery all into one. And unlike many of the later Bond films, particularly under Roger Moore, it manages to do all of this without being ridiculously over the top.
So, what do you think is the greatest Bond film?
