Default Re: Daniel Craig as the new James Bond.

The bond actors seem to go in cycles, from Bad ass Killer (Connery) to campy (Moore) back to Killer (dalton) and again back to campy (Bronson). Looks like the pendulum has shifted again. There's probably something to be said about the state of the world and popular culture at the time of each movie in that but i'm not going to take the time to analyze it.


For what its worth in my opinion Craig looks more like the Bond depicted in the books.

I just posted about L4yer Cake tonight, and I agree with the previous statements. At first I was annoyed with this selection of bond....but now I have to say I think he'll do a great job...

I really enjoyed Layer Cake a lot, and it made me like Daniel Craig and think he would be cool to see in some more movies.

He could definitely pull off the mean streak Bond needs to pull him into the modern age and away from the type of worn out silliness that Roger Moore started. Espionage actually has lots of potential to be really gripping and scary and dirty, and we could use a some of that in the Bond series. I look forward to having a Bond again who when he says he's going to break your arm, you start sh*tting bricks.

Who knows if Craig will fulfill that or if they will try to keep things going along the same silly arc it's been in for the last 30 years. Well anyway, we can hope.

Just saw him in Munich. He doesn't look too much younger than Brosnan.

To me, there's something wrong with a Bond who's able to do the most insane [censored] with the little smirk on his face. I see no bad-ass or ruggedness at all w/ Brosnan, which made movies like the Bourne Identity make me stop watching Bond w/ Brosnan.

James Bond should be a bad motherfucka that could whoop your ass and do secret agent [censored] at the same time, not a preppy little british man who looks more fit for a wine tasting party than a spy mission.
