Top 10 James Bond Movies

Timothy Dalton as James Bond in Licence to Kill


This is a controversial choice. Many criticize Licence to Kill because it is too serious, too violent and strays too far away from the Goldfinger formula. But five-time Bond director John Glen considers this his best work, and it's easy to understand why. This is a gritty tale that shows Bond is human (kudos to Timothy Dalton), while the action sequences and Count of Monte Cristo-like plot keep you riveted. Robert Davi is captivating as drug lord Franz Sanchez, while a very young Benicio del Toro hams it up as his henchman. Meanwhile, Carey Lowell proves once again that strong women often inhabit the best Bond films.
