Bond Movies- From Best To Worst

Having recently seen all 23 of the James Bond films consecutively, I have ranked the films from best to worst. I won’t go into detail on each one, but I will discuss the best film and the worst film respectively.

The best movie was Skyfall. The acting is top-notch. We see Bond as a flawed character instead of an unstoppable killing machine. The villain is not seen until halfway into the movie, so there is a lot of build up. When we do meet him he is interesting, over-the-top, and complex. Skyfall takes the Bond mythos and gives it meaning for a modern age.

The worst was On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. George Lazenby plays James Bond and he is dull as dishwater. The plot is stupid, even for a Bond movie. The action is poorly edited and leads to a finale that is as abrupt and unpleasant as a car door to the face. The only entertaining aspect is seeing young Diana Rigg as a Bond girl. She would go on to play Olenna Tyrell in Game of Thrones.

In order from best to worst:

1. Skyfall
2. Casino Royale
3. Quantum of Solace
4. Diamonds Are Forever
5. Goldfinger
6. Goldeneye
7. License to Kill
8. You Only Live Twice
9. The Living Daylights
10. The Man With The Golden Gun
11. Live and Let Die
12. Thunderball
13. Dr. No
14. From Russia With Love
15. The Spy Who Loved Me
16. Moonraker
17. The World Is Not Enough
18. For Your Eyes Only
19. A View To A Kill
20. Octopussy
21. Tomorrow Never Dies
22. Die Another Day
23. On Her Majesty's Secret Service
