We all watch Bond movies and expect the unbelievable. They are sheer Entertainment nothing else. I always loved the double meanings that Roger Moore is best remembered for. The songs produced for the films are also memorable.

The new film Casino Royale isn't one of the best from the stable in my opinion.

To me, Roger Moore was the worst...unless you want a sort of Playboy fantasy spy figure...and Sean Connery was the best, because you could definitely take him seriously as a dangerous man. I have not seen the new movie, but it sounds like Daniel Craig is playing his role very well from the reviews I've read of it.

The question is, what sort of Bond do you want? Do you want a man who is believable as a tough, ruthless, professional spy...or do you want someone who would look more at home dressed in a $10,000 suit and flirting with a bunch of bunnies at a party in the Playboy mansion?

In my case, I'd prefer the former by a long shot.

I guess some of the actual spies/agents used in the last world war didn't fit the bill either but they did the job. I don't believe there is a recognised stereotype for a spy in reality...we just expect something with star quality because we are used to James Bond being the macho/ handsome man in films.
I sort of agree with what you are saying in regard to the film stereotype with regard to Roger Moore though.
Best wishes, Mike.

I think Daniel Craig is just great in the role. He comes closer to matching the Bond of the books. I thought Roger Moore was awful in the role, turning the series into a cartoon. Sean Connery is still the best.

Is it just me are is there anyone else out there thinks that Daniel Craig just doesn't fit the role?

I have always been an admirer of Roger Moore in the role, the guy had it all.The others got away with it and were good, but this new guy strikes me more like someone you would get at the door if you rang a plummer in Yellow Pages.
