Forums - Movies & TV - What Is The Greatest James Bond Film?

The truth is that if On Her Majesty's Secret Service starred Sean Connery, it would be the greatest Bond film of all. As it is though, I would have to go with Goldfinger.

By the way guys, The World Is Not Enough is the worst Bond film ever made. It makes A View To A Kill look like From Russia, With Love. The story is mediocre, Robert Carlyle and Sophie Marceau are wasted, the soundtrack sucks, the action scenes are all poorly done except for the pre-credits teaser (speaking of which, it has that scene where the helicopters with saws cut Zukovsky's caviar factory to ribbons *ugh*), it has a million horrible one liners, and Denise Richards as a nuclear physicist has to be one of the worst casting decisions ever.

This reminds me that I have to stop being so damned lazy and start reviewing all of these movies like I said that I would to like two or three people...

I disagree. Giant sun laser and invisible car make Die Another Day the worst James Bond film, closely followed by The World is Not Enough and Moonraker.

 

My favourite Bond film ever though is From Russia With Love, which is really in my opinion James Bond stripped right down to its core.

While you can argue their qualities as actors, there's no question that Brosnan and Moore produced many of the worst Bond movies. Both of them seemed to have a penchant for creating very ridiculous, cheesy scenes.

From what I've seen: Casino Royale by far. Even though it didn't feel a lot like a "Bond film", it was still awesome and very exciting to watch.

If you don't like Die Another Day, then how do you justify liking Moonraker? Or do you?

Anyway, on the statement about On Her Majesties Secret Service starring Connery being the best, I think I can agree with that statement as far as acceptance from the mainstream audience goes; I think it would be almost universally accepted as such; although it is actually my favourite Bond movie already without him.

I do not like Moonraker much at all (the worst Roger Moore movie IMO).  Despite several things being wrong with it, the worst part about it was what they did with Jaws at the end.  Ironically, it's sandwiched in between my two favorite Moore Bond films.

OHMSS really is a great movie in every way and I actually didn't mind Lazenby's portrayal of Bond.  It's just that he had a near impossible act to follow (Connery).  I actually think that Lazenby could have been a very good Bond if he continued in the series for the next several movies.

amp316 - I agree completely!

Anyway, speaking of Bond: Ralph Fiennes - who just might be the best actor in the world at portraying a villain - is rumoured to be playing Blofeld!

I am glad they took their time with this Bond film, it means it is probably going to be very good.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Quantum of Solace is surely the worst Bond movie? I see World is not Enough and Die Another Die mentioned but I'm sure everyone remembers those, QoS is a bland forgetable movie...can anyone even name a scene? I've watched it twice, I remember a desert, a plane...not much else. Perhaps that why it isn't mentioned, people forgot it existed entirely. Casino Royale asn't much better, remember much about it that wasn't the card scene?

Moonraker is great because it embraces the absurdity. There is nothing serious about it.
A great bond movie; maybe not.
A great secret agent movie? Very much so.
It was like austin powers back before comedy existed.



@radishead

Watch Goldeneye!
There is a reason Brosnan had so many bond movies.

You can't give all the credit to brosnan. Sean Bean had a lot to do with that movie being awesome.

Well personally speaking, I didn't mention it because I don't agree with you; I don't think it is a great Bond movie, but I would certainly watch it before I watched a few of the others. I think your memory issue is probably just you.

Talking about what Bond film is the worst is a little off topic anyway.

Personally, I actually do like all of the movies at least to some extent; even the one I consider the least of them.

I can't forget the Bond movie, The Spy Who Loved Me.

Other than that; Goldfinger, From Russia with Love, and Goldeneye I enjoyed.
