Craig can be a bit too emotionless and cold sometimes while Dalton can be over emotional and constantly angry for no reason. Brosnan is a very relaxed Bond. He's cold when he needs to be and he's emotional when he needs to be. He never becomes either extreme. He's just right.
You can throw in all of them including Barry Nelson, David Niven and Woody Allen...
The outcome will stay the same....
Timothy DALTON RULEZ™
Of course I like all 6, otherwise my Top 6 Bond films wouldn't been made of 6 different actors.
Bond had a personality ,even in the novels of Fleming or Gardner...do you feel Dalton's Bond had a better personality than Craig or Brosnan Bonds ?
I think Craig plays a great character in a movie, (most of the time) just not Bond. He very rarely acts or behaves in a way which I expect the character to do, based on the books by Fleming. I don't like how he became a bit of a grunt, how approaches every situation like a wrecking ball. He was also very disloyal and insubordinate, even when he had no reason to be.
Dalton is the quintessential Fleming Bond, I don't think that would ever come into question. He is a truly dark character, and responds to problems with anger and tenacity rather than with sadness. Like the early Connery Bond, I enjoy just watching the Dalton Bond do his job, and he spends a lot of time focused on problem solving. He's a thinking Bond.
Brosnan is underrated. He's the metropolitan Bond which bothers some people I guess, but I just love how he mixed the suaveness with just a hint of the realism. Another thing I've become impressed about Brosnan is simply his movement on screen. For instance, when he is running around the Cradle at the end of GE, he moves very deliberately and efficiently. He sells the fact that he is trained to handle these situation really well.
I like Tim, Pierce and Daniel equally, but for different reasons. I do feel Tim seriously attempted to bring Fleming's Bond to the screen. Quite a bit of it worked, though 1980's fashions, prevent me from completely envisioning Dalton when I read the books. For example, Fleming's Bond certainly did not have either Dalton's, or Pierce's haircut.
Daniel has it both ways. He certainly is 2000's and 2010's contemporary, yet has a classic look that doesn't seem to cater to a specific decade. I could picture him in Fleming's world, when wearing the better fitting suits as in CR. He obviously looks like hits the gym more than the literary Bond did.
Pierce, I can envision waking up and immediately hitting the floor with the twenty push-ups, leg lifts, and cold shower, as Fleming's Bond does, but I just don't see him consuming too many scrambled eggs. Brosnan's Bond probably eats fruit, yogurt, or high fiber cereal for breakfast. I don't see him consuming much of the foods described by Fleming.
