Probably, always will be, although Craig has won we over with a return to a more grittier Bond and less of the suave. I think of the alternatives it's likely Craig would be the only one that Connery would approve of!


I agree LP

Craig lacks the stature and suave but nails the action stuff IMHO.. Bit of mission impossible about the later Bond movies which doesn't appeal as much to me..

Perhaps, Brosnan was carp, didnt like Roger Moore either. Anyway, Connery was so much more than just Bond, what he crammed  into  90 years would equate to 270 of ours I'd imagine.

My personal preference would be Connery, then Brosnan before Craig/Moore etc.

Brosnan bought the suave nature that i always liked from Connery.
Craig is just an action star and i can't watch the later ones. I did like Casino Royale remake though.

BTW, surprised nobody has brought up Indiana Jones and the last crusade. Loved that movie as a kid and thought Connery was so good in it. Both watching it as a kid, and now.

Of course the untouchables is worth a mention too.

The lines in Gold finger originally went:

Hi,  I'm Pussy Galore

Of course you are...but your name is?

Even Connery couldnt get away with that one.
DrE is no more... you ok with that harmonica man?

The Hunt for Red October wasn't his finest but you're allowed a stinker or two I guess.

And as if on cue, Ch 9 are running a Bond Special every Monday beginning with Craig's Casino Royale (programmed before the Great Man passed away). Sometimes planets align in a strange and often psychic way.
