I'd likely go with FRWL of FYEO for most plausible
It's funny- while one of the most realistic films otherwise, OHMSS, actually has one of the LEAST plausible villain plots!
Really, come to think of it, many plans seem fairly achievable.
Aside from DAD, one thing you can give the recent Bond films is plausibility.
1st you lose a nuclear sub
2nd there's no way to track it!
I agree on AVTAK, which in my mind is even an elegant plot to knock out the competition. As is LALD, allthough you'd wonder if you could produce so much drugs on such a small island toget the whole country addicted on free drugs.
CR seems plausible, QoS too. GE, even with the satallites as a given, doesn't. Digitally breaking in in so many Banks? You can't do that with just one genius. TB, allthough a fantastic movie, isn't very plausible. TWINE neither, nor Goldfinger.
DAD obviously is the most plausible: genetic alteration, conflict diamonds on a satallite to burn your way from North to South Korea. Yep, very plausible. They just needed a hollowed out vulcano to top it off.
I'll go with LTK as the most plausible.
FRWL: Lektor trap
CR's: Le Chiffre Poker Tournament to refund "lost" customer's savings
FYEO: ATAC recovery
LTK: Stop a Central American drug lord.
QOS: Prevent Greene from taking 60% of Bolivia's water
OP: Detonate a nuclear bomb at the circus.
MR: Restart humanity from space
TSWLM: Restart humanity from underwater
DAD: The satellite laser splitting Korea in half
YOLT: The Giant Spaceship Eating Ships in Space and returning them to a hollowed out volcano
DAF: The diamond nuclear satellite controlled from an oil rig
AVTAK: 1. Kill entire staff, 2. ?, 3. Flood Silicon Valley, 4. Profits
no world domination here just simple crooks.
Most of Blofeld's schemes seem very implausible. (save for Thunderball and OHMSS)
In terms of ingenuity, OP and TWINE take the cake. They're both pure genuis, and find far more original uses for nuclear devices than blowing up Washington or New York. But they're perhaps not as plausible as the other six.
Citing that example, FRWL is VERY plausible.
another plausible film is FRWL, if you ignore spectre
least plausible has to be moonraker. and TSWLM wasn't very plausible despite it being a great film.
goldfinger i can't make up my mind on. detonating a bomb inside fort knox so you have the worlds largest gold supply, it seems plausible. But what about the consequences, even if goldfingers plan suceeded did he not think that with the goverement already investigating him that he'd be the prime suspect??? and would breaking into fort knox and fighting of goverment troops really be that easy?
The thought was obvious in YOLT, with Bond playing dead and becoming a Japanese. Was he actually involved in the actual mission?
