    Agree or disagree?

    I'm asking about Craig's suitability as the new Bond, not whether you liked the new movie or not.

    I've never went out of my way to see Bond movies (not to say they're bad, but they're not always amazing, either) --> I enjoyed Casino Royale so much that we went to see Quantum of Solace on opening night... and I'm not sure which I enjoyed more!

    I personally think that Daniel Craig most certainly is the best damned Bond. Ever.

    He'll never beat Connery, but I would agree in placing him at a prospective second place (I'd rather see a third movie just to be sure of his abilities). I didn't really like him all too much in Quantum, but he was in-fuckin-credible in Casino.

    I really gotta watch more of the Connery ones...

    What I like about the Daniel Craig movies so far is the dark grittiness that is portrayed in him and his profession (as it should be), so it's hard to say --> Maybe I just like the new film style, and Craig just happens to be the benefactor?

    Well the American moviegoer tends to lean towards the "dark" hero these days. It's probably because we've grown sick of these flashy pretty boy heroes who do nothing wrong and always save the day. The new trend is the "flawed hero" such as the newer Batman or even Superman, both of whom have lives that are much tougher than the ones traditionally portrayed.

    It's only natural that Bond would undergo this treatment and it worked well. At least, in the first one it did. In the recent one, I'm not so sure.

    Sean Connery is the best James Bond ever, hands down.

    I've noticed...

    ...and that's just fine with me. I've always loved darker stories and unhappy endings (that's life).

    Jeez, for once the western world has taken on a trend that I actually don't mind... :shocked:

    Since watching Casino Royale was the first Bond movie I ever saw, I would agree that he is the best Bond. I am looking forward to seeing Quantum of Solace since he is in it too. I think he did an excellent job in Casino Royale and I was very impressed.

    I believe Connery is the best James Bond actor then Craig comes in second, I loved Casino Royale and same thing with Quantum of Solace. Daniel Craig did a wonderful job portraying 007, but he doesn't beat Sean Connery.

    I personally like Pierce Brosnan and James Connery. I can't see Craig staying as Bond much less be the most popular.
