Everybody who's seen a spy movie has asked this question: who's the best James Bond? I suppose most of you will pick Connery or Craig but here's my personal favourites in order:
Brosnan
Connery
Dalton
Lazenby
Craig
Moore

I would Sean Connery, but Casino Royale was the best Bond film.

Brosnan or Craig.
Watched Skyfall last night on DVD......what a disappointing film after all the hype found it really boring. OH is the bond fan in our household and he was diappointed too.

There was only one James Bond and that was Sean Connery. Suave, sophisticated and no rough edges. The others were just pale copies.

Definitely agree it's Sean Connery but Daniel Craig comes a close second!!

I would have to vote for Daniel Craig as he brings so much to Bond- his performances are so multi-layered and pitched perfectly. The only other actor to have given such a nuanced performance as 007 is Timothy Dalton, a much underrated Bond IMHO but who cannot equal Craig. I managed to see Skyfall for the first time the other night and was so impressed. Craig was fantastic and all hail Dame Judi for an outstanding performance as the best M in Bond history so far!
Back to the remaining 007s:
Connery will always win the nostalgia vote. None of the others really do it for me - Brosnan was a bit too pretty boy for my liking and looked like he'd shout "Not the face!" in a fight. He also had a very strange facial expression when he ran and his voice didn't convince. Moore played too much for comedy. Lazenby wasn't an actor (having been a model) and was unfortunate in that he only got one chance at the part with no repeat performance to try to prove himself. He also got a rather depressing film that isn't one I'd reach for from my Bond collection as it is sad (that said I don't reach for the Roger Moore ones either - they're only there so the collection is complete!) Poor Diana Rigg reportedly thought she was going to be playing opposite Connery and was rather disappointed to find herself paired with an unknown Lazenby.
I was mightily impressed with Skyfall and have high hopes for the future of Bond. Mendes did a wonderful job of crafting an incredibly clever, richly symbolic film that was entertaining and intelligent. I didn't notice the time going in and considering that I was very tired and almost asleep when the film was put into the DVD player, I was fully awake and engaged from the moment a fuzzy Bond first made an appearance onscreen.
I had never heard Adele's theme sung all the way through until I watched the film and it is only at the end that you can see how clever it is, weaving important aspects of the storyline into it, creating a highly symbolic, deeply meaningful piece of music. I would place it as one of the best Bond themes now.
With Skyfall I think the Bond franchise has had a successful rebirth. I can't wait for 007 to return to continue his quest, as M quoting Tennyson said, "To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield."

Mine is the one of the books :P

But seriously, in terms of sales Daniel Craig has sold the most making him technically more successful than Connery. Brosnon is second to last just above Lazenby though not too far behind Dalton. Moore sits third. Rather technical I know but in terms of box office success the list is as follows

Daniel Craig
Sean connery
Roger Moore
Timothy Dalton
Peirce Brosnan
George Lazenby

Niven doesn't really count since the film was actually a spoof

Sir Roger Moore. Nobody does it better. Live and Let Die is the best of the down to Earth Bonds but The Spy Who Loves Me is the greatest of all the epic Bonds.
Craig has a big head, small body and short. Brosnan a poor mans Roger Moore. Lazenby should have made another Bond but he was Australian and the English press hated him.
Dalton came after Roger and couldn't fill the shoes of Moore, his Bonds are dull. Connery just he was first doesn't make him the best. Dr.No is his best and he would be 2nd after Sir Roger Moore. The rest are just awful.

Roger Moore was a good Bond. I'd put him as number 3.
A huge suprise to myself is that I put Daniel Craig as number two. When they annonced him as Bond I thought, "No no no!" But "Casino Royale" was a great film. "Q.O.S." disappointing, but somehow neccessary.
I saw "Skyfall" last week. WOW!! Great film, and Craig cemented himself as the new Bond for a new era. IMO.
But for me, Sean Connery is still the Best Bond and "Goldfinger" the best Bond film.

The original, and best - Bob Holness, of course

" So if you want to read the entire OP not just the title you'll see what my point was ;). Obviously he could have written Everybody who's seen a rom-com has asked this question: who's the best James Bond? or Everybody who's seen a porn film has asked this question: who's the best James Bond?. The main gist was who's the best James Bond, but what a repetitive dull question! Plus it's in a OP thread that's being openly divisive by putting Craig lower than Lazenby. "

I think you are reading far more into this thread than you need to,it's a very simple question of who is the best james bond actor no more no less.

I think we all know deep down in our hearts that Basildon Bond was the best bond

"Sir Roger Moore. Nobody does it better. Live and Let Die is the best of the down to Earth Bonds but The Spy Who Loves Me is the greatest of all the epic Bonds."

I agree with this - also Roger Moore was the best dressed of all the bonds - Connery looked like a reject from Bros auditions and Daniel Craig looks like a used car salesman late for an appointment of some description. Roger though...Roger was boss.
