    It's between Sean Connery and Pierce Brosnan for the title of best. They are so radically different, there's not going to be a consensus on just one.

    For my money, I'll go with Pierce Brosnan. Though Sean is great, I think Brosnan really defined the modern image of Bond: a suave, charming, and sophisticated British spy, always handy with a spectacular gadget and a clever one liner.

    Also, for third place, definitely Daniel Craig.

    Sean Connery, Pierce Brosnan, Timothy Dalton, Daniel Craig, George Lazenby and Roger Moore in that order.

    I think Gahars summed it up for me. Although GoldenEye is by far the best motive, he just defines Bond. Sexy (no homo), snappy, quick witted, and he has that look about him that says, "Hey, I'm a British spy, and I'm good at it!"

    I think he means which actor do you think is the best Bond not which Bond movie is the best

    I was referring to the movies, but GoldenEye was the best, story line, game, Pierce Brosnan. EVERYTHING was so good about it. Even the Daniel Craig version [​IMG]

    One channel showed all the Bonds (except QoS and they showed Casino Royale last autumn) and I decided to watch all of them. My list goes like this :

    1. Daniel Craig
    2. Sean Connery / Roger Moore
    3. Timothy Dalton
    4. George Lazenby
    5. Pierce Brosnan

    Also, Goldeneye for Wii is awesome.

    The only two I care about is Pierce Brosnan (of course), and Daniel Craig. Despite his non British appearance, he's probably the best bond actor there is, but nothing better than a bond actor

    1. Pierce Brosnan, he doesn't even have to do anything. He just looks the perfect bond in every way.
    2/3. Sean Connery, most famous bond for a reason, sleek with his one liners and sex appeal
    2/3. Roger Moore, the looks he made with his eyes fitted him perfectly as as one of the top bonds. Plus he was in one of my fav bond movies, "Moonraker".

    Maybe it's just me, but i don't accept Daniel Craig as James Bond. I don't think he has the charisma or the natural sturdy yet sleek bond look.

    however he's still a better bond then George Lazenby and Timothy Dalton...

    EDIT:typo

    David Niven.

    Being (slightly) more serious I am not sure as I do not tend to treat the entire Bond series as well a series rather a some films that might share a common theme or two. However the other week I was given a drive with them all on and I watched goldeneye so I am not sure what that says/means.

    Well, it all works as one film, continuous film series if you accept the popular fan theory that "James Bond" is actually a code name taken by different 007 operatives, which would explain why all the Bonds are so different.

    It works, if you're willing to overlook a few plot holes here and there.

    I can totally understand where your coming from. The only reason I count him is because he is a Bond, be it good or bad.

    EDIT: I did however like him in casino royale. He is a good actor, he's just not right for bond though...

    Being a huge Bond fan, I'd say it goes like this...

    1. Sean Connery
    2. Pierce Brosnan
    3. Roger Moore
    4. Daniel Craig
    5. George Lazenby
    6. Timothy Dalton

    Connery is a god.

    Daniel Craig was a perfectly fine Bond. It's shame it looks like the Bond series is in a state of limbo otherwise we would see how good Craig is.
