I've always considered Moonraker to be the worst of the Bond movies, but
on reflection I'm not so sure that A View to a Kill wasn't worse. I
mean, Moonraker didn't have anything in it as bad as Tanya Roberts.
Man With the Golden Gun, is I think, the worst of the Moores. Diamonds are
Forever is the worst of Connery's. I disliked all of Timothy Dalton's, and
I've only seen Daniel Craig in the remake of Casino Royale, which I thought
was an OK action movie, but did not feel like Bond at all.
Of all the non-Connery Bonds, I liked Pierce Brosnan in "Goldeneye" best. De
Connery - DAF, reluctantly.
Moore - TMWTGG - it nearly killed the franchise (luckily he bounced
back with The Spy Who Loved Me, Moore's best shot at the role).
Moonraker and A View To A Kill are a close second in the worst-of
stakes, and I agree that For Your Eyes Only is much underrated
(albthough it has the worst theme song).
Dalton - Licence to Kill is a big drop-off after The Living Daylights.
Brosnan - Die Another Day is OK until Halle Berry and the invisible
Aston Martin show up, then it descends into farce.
Craig - no complaints so far.
I think probably the two most underrated Bond films are For Your Eyes
Only and License to Kill. I always liked License to Kill because it
was Bond going outside the scope of MI6, and it was a straight revenge
Worst Bond film, it is a tossup between Moonraker and A View to a
Kill. Both were dreadful, but I eventually have to settle on A View
to a Kill. Where do I begin? Christopher Walken as a German
Concentration Camp experiment, with his New York accent. I know the
villain role was first offered to both David Bowie and Sting, who both
turned it down, but they made the right decision. I also didn't how
you set off a bomb in a cave less than 100 feet underground but it
would flood the entire Silicon Valley. And Grace Jones? I never got
her either. Tanya Roberts was not the worst Bond girl, that IMO would
go to that user of new and improved Joker cosmetics, Denise Richards,
but I would rate Tanya Roberts as possibly second worst. Was there
anything good about this movie? I liked that they made a small role
for Patrick Macnee, but he was not very helpful as Bond's assistant
and got killed off pretty early. It was also Lois Maxwell's final
performance as Moneypenny.
