The Worst James Bond Movies Ranked and Where to Stream Them
The James Bond franchise is responsible for some of the greatest action movies of all time. It helped establish the standard form for the cinematic spy genre, and introduced us to some of the most well-known and iconic characters in all of pop culture.
However, as great as some of the Bond movies are, there is no denying that there are quite a few incredibly disappointing entries in the Bond franchise.
The Worst James Bond Movies
Quantum of Solace
Quantum of Solace is a fairly strong movie that audiences might’ve been let down by because it didn't quite measure up to the success of Casino Royale.
Diamonds Are Forever
Connery was and always has been practically synonymous with the tuxedo-wearing, cigarette-smoking, martini-sipping man of mystery, and is still considered the best Bond we've seen thus far in the character's history.
Never Say Never Again
sometimes the only thing worse than seeing actors leave their most beloved roles is seeing them overstay their welcome. Case in point with Never Say Never Again, which marked Sean Connery's return to the Bond role 12 years after 1971's Diamonds Are Forever.
One of the weirder Bond movies (I mean, just look at that title), Octopussy is a Bond movie that just feels over the place. Sure, we're all used to the globe-trotting adventures of the super spy, but this one just felt messy and chaotic in the worst way possible.
A View to a Kill
Great villain, bad movie (something you'll see in a lot of the lesser Bond movies, especially during the Roger Moore period of the character). A View to a Kill stars Christopher Walken as a Nazi scientific experiment turned KGB agent turned wealthy industrialist who plans to destroy Silicon Valley and gain a monopoly on computer microchips.
Tomorrow Never Die
Tomorrow Never Dies has probably the most ridiculous plot in all of James Bond (which is certainly saying something given how comically far-fetched some of the plans are from the series' villains). When highly reputable news tycoon Elliot Carver (Jonathan Pryce) attempts to trigger a third world war for the sake of ratings, Bond must team with a Chinese agent from the Ministry of State Security (Michelle Yeoh) in order to stop him.
