For over fifty years, James Bond has been saving the world from megalomaniac media moguls, Caribbean drug kingpins, one-eyed anarchists and unfortunately some North Korean guy who turned himself into a white Australian diamond merchant. But this thursday, Bond meets perhaps his greatest foe in the 23rd movie of the series...Javier Bardem's blond hair.
With just a few days left before Skyfall hits U.S. shores, the film has already been heralded as the film that will carry the franchise on for another decade at least in early reviews that have so positive that it seems almost a guarantee that #23 will be the #1 007 film in many's hearts for a long time to come. And apparently this is not just because of Bérénice Marlohe. But until we all get to mancrush out on Daniel Craig in action at the end of the week, we've rated the best and worst of every James Bond movie ever!
Does that mean best simply in terms of quality in writing, acting, production design and action? No, of course not, because sometimes a bad Bond movie is better than anything else (coughAViewtoaKillcough) simply because it's so terrible and corny that you can't live without it. And Never Say Never is also included, because while not canon, it's still better than what Roger Moore was up to in 1983.
So without further adieu--Bond from Worst to Best.
