I have only seen 2 of them... Sean Connerys last movie "Never say never again" (1983) and Roger moores last movie "View to a kill" (1985)

I would say VIEW TO A KILL is 1000% better than never say never again!!!!!


I havent seen Daniel Craigs last movie (so far) "Spectre" (2015) or Pierce Bronsons last movie "Die Another Day" (2002) so I cant comment on those... (Or I dont want to rather)

Roger Moore is my Bond. He was the first Bond I saw. Then my father had me go back and watch the other Bonds. I liked them too, but I will always be a Roger Moore girl. Anything after is just crap! I hated Brosnan and Craig....we shall see how Elba does.

As for which movie I liked best...I loved all of Moore's movies.

Under the theory that "Never Say Never Again" is not canon, I'd have to say Brosnan "Die Another Day."

Canon aside, I would say "Never Say Never Again."

"On Her Majesty's Secret Service" with George Lazenby has always been my favorite Bond.

Who could forget Diana Rigg?

Watch this one carefully, and don't diss it out of hand...

Do you expect me to talk?

No, Mr. Bond. I expect you to die.

Well, there is a matter of view point as in since "NSNA" wasn't canon, it wasn't Connery's last 007 flick. To me, Diamonds are Forever was Connery's last 007 flick .............................. and that was an excellent movie!

Further, it depends on how things are seen.

For the closest to the book, I would go with Lazenby's OHMSS. Others may rake it over the coals as a poor movie and I wouldn't have a problem with that......but it was the closest to the book.

As it is, for the criteria to the question, I would have to go with OHMSS with DAF running a close second.

The "problem" is that for this or that Bond (Connery, Lazenby, Moore, Dalton, Bronsons (nothing against Craig himself but since they rebooted the franchise, I stopped watching Bond at CR)), they all have great movies, but just that their last may not have been the best.

Dalton's first was better than the last. Pierce's others were better than the last. Moore's age was really working against him in his last. Connery had many excellent works and his 1st last, YOLT, may have been the best.

However, there is plenty there for one to find their favorite.

I hear ya Tammy

Who is CANON??? -- Sean Connery was bond,not Mr. Canon and technically YES 'Never say never again' WAS Seans last 007 movie.... (Even though it isnt very good -- He should have stopped with "YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE" (1967) which is excellent!))

Moore, Connery and Brosnan had the right demeanor for those movies, IMHO. All were looking cool while holding a gun
I don't particularly care for Craig - not his look, nor his acting. Since he had signed on for two future Bond films, meaning he will star as 007 in at least five films - I might change my mind ...

Oh, I can't resist!

Colthorpe: [trying to trace origins of a golden bullet] Lazar?
Q: Lazar? Hmm, imaginative, highly specialised... Yes! I concur.
James Bond: Well, what the hell is Lazar?
Colthorpe: Not "what", "who". Portuguese. Lives in Macau.
Q: Chap who made the bullet, 007!

(from IMDB (from TMWTGG))



Not "who", "what". The accepted standard for doing things. This is "Canon": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canon


Calling NSNA "Bond" is like calling Casino Royale (1967) "Bond". Yes, Casino Royale was very fun, yes it had gorgeous Bond girls, and two rather decent Bonds at times, Peter Sellers and Terrence Cooper, but it wasn't made by the Canon, it wasn't Broccoli &, at the time, Saltzman, and as such, it wasn't what is accepted as "Bond"......


........................and neither was Never Say Never Again.
