Sean Connery is James Bond....I guess the topic of who is second best is perfectly valid .

       I think people are confusing the best Bond, with the best scripts, Connery led the way, all those years ago, then over the years, the actors and stories changed, some for the better, some for the worst, but I think Daniel Craig has revitalised the Bond movies, after Flemings books ended.

       Maybe, too many voters based their choice on the year they were born, hence the variations in their decisions.

Craig is closest to the Bond character as written by Fleming. But in 1962 I saw a trailer for an upcoming movie at a "Buck a carload" drive-in theater. It was called "Dr. No". I was instantly sold on the movie and Connery.

As for a good Bond physically, this guy seems right to fill the shoes

Dalton over Moore and Craig? Must be alot of Covid zombie brains at work. 

 

Connery was amazing. A genius of an actor. A one of a kind for sure. 

 

However, I loved Roger Moore. His dry humor was outstanding. For me, he is second. Craig third. Brosnan fourth. Who next? There will never be another Sean Connery.

I'd back Ray Stevenson for Bond. Looks the part, sounds the part, and a great actor. Towering performance as Pullo in 'Rome'.

The next James Bond is gong to be a black Latino, Asian trans gendered female that drinks mocha latte does not drink liquor and does not fight because they do not want to break a nail or ruin their make up.

... wearing Bonds undies, and armour plated fingernail polish

Errrrr no.

 

General references in the novels describe Bond as having "dark, rather cruel good looks".

 

As a blonde craig is rather the exact opposite of the Bond written by Fleming.

 

His Bond also had a love of food, alcohol and love-making, and a smoking habit of 60 custom-made cigarettes a day.

 

One can't see the dour Craig enjoying any of those things, or any other things really.

 

In the books Bond is not fond of homosexuals,  with Bond opining that homosexuals were "a herd of unhappy sexual misfits – barren and full of frustrations, the women wanting to dominate and the men to be nannied", adding that "he was sorry for them, but he had no time for them."

 

Craig by contrast seems quite "woke".

I still think no one comes close to Connery. But that said, I rewatched Goldfinger recently and I was amazed by how slowly it moved. I remember when I saw it as a kid I thought it was so exciting.

Dalton in second place?! Wow! I would’ve never guessed that in a million years! My favorite is Brosnan then Connery then Craig.

Brosnan 55555555555555555

He was too smug by far, and went on to prove that he is rubbish by his abominable performance in Mama Mia ( so bad that they had to reduce his presence to almost nil in the sequel ).

Moore played it for laughs in the worst Bond movies ever.

Connery was The Bond, having sex appeal oozing from every pore, and was the only thing good about the badly made movies he was in. I recently watched Dr No again and was surprised at just how bad the movie was, but Connery carried it on his own.

Craig's movies have excellent production values, but he's too "beige" to be a great Bond.

Bond's decline is matched by the rise in PC.

IMO it doesn't matter. The francise died when Connery left- it just didn't know it as the producer milked the franchise for all it could. What we get now is not Bond, even if his name is Bond. When they started discussing whether to put a woman in the position it just put the final nail in the coffin.

Well, that’s your opinion, just like I have mine.
