I can't vote because I'd put Craig ahead of Moore.

Best Bond, however, I'd agree with McBear, Sean Connery defines the role.

Of course, he's an outstanding actor anyway.

Anyone see L4yer Cake? Craig was pretty good in that.

I have to say I couldn't picture him as Bond, but after seeing Casino Royale I changed my mind.

Seen QoS this past weekend. Good. but I liked Casino Royale better. Daniel Craigs role in the new movie has been compared to Jason Bourne. (rightfully so) I like Craig's portrayal of Bond but feel he needs to study Connery a bit moore.

Excessive camera movement ruined the action shots... that's what happens when a drama director tries his hand at action somewhat like what happens when _____ tries ______.

I too also feel Craig is the best Bond since Connery.

I also see a real resemblance between the Bonds of yesteryear and this new Quantum of Solace. In the Bond of Connery's time you had the evil international empire Spectre who used loyal, wealthy businessmen as surrogates to do their evil duties and later the Bond series got away from this and used individuals as crazies going for world domination.

The new Bond with Craig has now seen a reemergence of a secret international evil empire (Quantum) controlling their piece of the world's evil pie and again using loyal wealthy businessmen to do their evil deeds.

It is as well interesting that the books follow this evil empire theme almost all the way through the series whereas the movies took a break away from it and are now back on track with it.

If Quantum ever comes to Indonesia to setup operations, then I'm their guy......

I like Daniel Craig as the new Bond although I have not see QoS yet. But Royale was definitely one of my favorite Bond movies.

Like many of you, I agree Connery defiantly defined Bond.
