bill-swift - November 2, 2012

Skyfall is opening in the United States in just eight days and early reviews have been nothing less than stellar. The only way I could be more excited by Bond right now is if Doc Brown pulled up in the DeLorean and said, 'Hey, hop in, we're going to travel back to 2002 and make sure Die Another Day never existed!'

All-in-all, six actors have played the British secret agent in the 23 007 pictures over the last fifty years. Some have been met with applause and celebration, others with cringing and depressing shaking of heads. Everyone has their own favorite Bond and their least favorite. But if for some reason you don't, you will now, as we rate each Bond and countdown to who the best Bond truly is.

So check out the gallery to see how we rated each actor's performance as the most celebrated spy in movie history from the worst to the best.
