I like Mr Connery and he's one of my all time favorite actors, but I'll go with Craig here. I know it's all just a movie and make believe, but all the past Bonds are nothing short of preposterous. Roger Moore is an awesome actor, but as soon as his Bond would point his gun in any direction, enemies were instantly dropping dead like flies, maybe even before he would take the gun, just in case

Craig makes at least a little more credible/believable Bond - it's still a fairy tale, but at least it's not corny that much

A better poll would be for the best film, or even better, for the best book.
Easilly the worst Brosnan Bond flick

Sean Connery is the MAN. He doesn't need to act cool, it comes naturally to him.

Others are way behind Sean Connery. He successfully combined the air of a man who is violent and threatening if needed but also witty. Others have been either/or.

Roger Moore is not very believable as a secret agent who can/will kill.

I really liked Casino Royale as well since it set a new "modern" standard for Bond flicks and Craig was a much more rugged and believable agent than many before him, however the film wasn't as light-hearted as many before it.

IMO only Brosnan's first Bond films amounted to anything, the last two were rubbish.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

It was bad, but the worst bond film was Die Another Day. Best Actor to be bond is Craig, then Connery and then Dalton.

Default Re: Which actor do you think was the best James Bond?

always said Roger Moore, i think maybe because i liked that period of Bond movies from 70's till mid 80's

what liked about Moore was he showed some humour in Bond

Connery was 2nd best and for me the gap is a million miles down to any of the other Bond actors with possibly the worst of all time right now
