What I did is I listed all 21 Bond movies with the actor who stared as bond. Then I ordered the movies based on how much I liked the movie. Now this was tough to do so I decided to re-watch all the movies with one exception. I did not re-watch Casino Royal. After ranking I assigned a point value to each film, 1 point to the worst and 2 for the second worst and so on. Then I totaled all the actors points for each film they did and I divided by the number of films. Since Craig and Lazenby only have done one film a piece my findings needed to be modified a bit to take into account for longevity. So what I did was add one point for each film the actor did to the average points.
So here is the data based on my opinion.
|From Russia with Love||Connery||7||15|
|You Only Live Twice||Connery||8||14|
|On Her Majesty's Secret Service||Lazenby||21||1|
|Diamonds are Forever||Connery||13||9|
|Live and Let die||Moore||17||5|
|The Man with the Golden Gun||Moore||12||10|
|The Spy Who Loved Me||Moore||14||8|
|For Your Eyes Only||Moore||3||19|
|A View to a Kill||Moore||18||4|
|The Living Daylights||Dalton||16||6|
|License to Kill||Dalton||10||12|
|Tomorrow Never Dies||Brosnan||11||11|
|The World is Not Enough||Brosnan||19||3|
|Die Another Day||Brosnan||20||2|
and the order I will rank the Bonds are....
|Bond||Average Points||Adjusted points|
So there it is. As like anything this my opinion and can be debated.
