Yes this new Bond was more like Jack Bower which is great. I hated the old Bonds but the new one is great. view post

The new Bond sucks..I only accepted Pierce Brosnan as a good enough Bond after Sean Connery.. view post

Even Pierce Brosnan wasnt that good. view post

Ill admit that the first brosnan film was good but man did those movies get really bad and totally corny as they went on. The new was a little bit of a stretch but had great action and a good enough story. Connery was the man! got to give him that view post

What I meant to say, and did, is that Brosnan was a good enough Bond..not that his 007 action or movies themselves were good... An enjoyable one-timer maybe..just as the rest..whereas Connery as Bond is actually enjoyable to see again..after a while... view post

I thought Casino Royal actually felt more like Bond to me than most of the other movies, definitely better than the Brosnan ones. It actually felt alot like the book Casino Royal in that this is how Bond becomes Bond. Very few of the actors who have played Bond in the past made you really feel like Bond was a cold-blooded killer, which he was. Sure he could be suave and sophisticated and had a taste for the finer things in life but underneath he was cold and cruel with a killer instinct. Bond wasn't so much a spy as a "trouble shooter". A blunt instruments who made the problems of the Crown go away. view post

I have never read any of the books..so I don't know what Bond is supposed to be..admittedly I had no idea about the blood thirsty murderer to be the case... So perhaps you are right about the last movie being closer to the books.. Unfortunately, for me, Bond will remain the Bond of Connery..the "suave and sophisticated" Bond "with a taste for the finer things in life"... view post

I actually heard that the actor made Bond seem like an arrogant jerk in the new film. view post
