That's tough. I liked them all with the exception of Lazenby and Moore. I thought Moore played an effeminate Bond. I always thought he might have been gay.

I hate the Craig is falling behind Brosnan but I had to vote for Connery. He is the only choice. From there Craig hands down.

I'll just make a list:

1. Connery
2. Craig
3. Dalton
4. Moore (Just because I grew up with him as Bond)
5. Brosnan
6. Lazenby

Couldn't have said it better, except swap Dalton with Brosnan.

I’m a big Bond fan, so I have a lot of thought on this subject.

It’s easy to end up judging each Bond more on the films they started in opposed to the portrayal of the character.

I’d rank them as follows:

1. Connery - the quintessential Bond. Advantage of being in the best films helps
2. Brosnan - also excellent.
3. Craig - the most violent. honestly just a fraction better than Dalton.
4. Dalton - don’t love his movies, but he brings a unique style.
5. Lazenby - like Dalton, a unique take on the character. By far the most unique portrayal, in arguably the most unique Bond film.
6. Moore - His delivery , humor and charm work well, but ultimately he’s just too ‘soft’ as Bond.

Also, while I rate Moore last, The Spy Who Loved Me remains one of my favorite Bond films.

I think Dalton's Bond has gotten better with age. His violent portrayal was ahead of it's time. To me Brosnan's Bond was too much of a cartoon character.

A lot of that had to do with the stories he was placed in. Those were all very "silly" to an extent.

Goldeneye is still fantastic tho.

Spot on about Dalton.

Yea Brosnan gets dinged often as his non Goldeneye features are terrible.

I agree with that. The stories got super 90's campy as a result of Dalton's dark Bond movies.

I haven't seen enough of the movies to make an informed vote, so I'll abstain. I have enjoyed Brosnan's and Craig's movies though.

Craig is my favorite, because the movies were good. Connery *is* Bond though.

Never seen a Connery bond movie, but I liked daniel craig way more than Brosnan. Pierce was just way over the top and laid everything on too thick. I agree some of this may have been the fact that the plots for his movies were dumb, even by Bond standards.

The one with Pierce and Halle Berry just defines the phrase "trying too hard", on both of their parts. Dumb dumb dumb dumb

I'm the lone Roger Moore vote because that's when I grew up watching them. I would put Connery in there as well as Brosnan.

I did not Dalton, and I can't stand Daniel Craig in general, much less as Bond.

I think Daniel Craig’s dark portrayal of Bond is really what Bond is and supposed to be. He’s a womanizer and basically hire for kill guy. You’d have to be ice cold for that job, and he’s nailed it. Connery would be my second, and Brosnan third. Some of the Pierce plots were laughable, and I felt like things were too colorful for what was supposedly happening. Goldeneye was for sure his best.

Moore just made a mockery out of that role. In real life he would have died in the first movie he did with his “abilities.”
