    I'm voting for OP. My favourite of Glen's and possibly my favourite of Sir Rog's as well.

    1. The Living Daylights. Nicely paced, exciting, generally good performances. A great debut film for Dalton.
    2. Octopussy. Despite its tendancy to lapse in to silliness OP has enough great action and locations to allow outright forgiveness.
    3. FYEO. Glen, possibly unsure about his ability to take on a big budget film like this, relies heavilly on too many action sequences; some overblown, some dragged out, many unnecessary. Otherwise it has plenty to commend it.
    4. AVTAK. Flat in places, Glen fails to deliver on his main strength - terrific action sequences. Terrible fist fights, redundant chase sequences. Only occassionally does AVTAK spark in to life.
    5. LTK. Nasty, bitter, viceous. It leaves a bad taste in the mouth as loose cannon Bond clumsilly flails around, getting people killed unnecessarilly and somehow bringing a huge multi-million, global drugs operation crashing down in about...3 days? As usual with Glen (apart from AVTAK) he delivers with the action scenes.

    Wow, only one vote for AVTAK... that's sad.

    TLD by TWO country miles! LTK a fair way behind but still good stuff. The other three are hardly what I'd term Bond Films.

    Well, I wouldn't go that far, I think TLD is brilliant and FYEO a great outing as well. But LTK is my favorite Glen film too.

    OP on the bottom for me, but that's not saying the film doesn't have redeeming qualities and is terrible or anything like that

    :D

    Great to see TLD leading the poll. It's one of the best Bonds, featuring one of the best Bond actors and one of the best Bond scores, IMO of course.

    FYEO and OP? Hardly Bond films? I could see AVTAK in that perspective, but not Glen's first two.

    Well, I think it's conclusive: AVTAK was the most hated 80s Bond movie.

    This is a tough one for me. Honestly apart from AVTAK I thought they were all really good Bond films and make it into my top 10. It's a toss up between OP and LTK. Since OP has gotten less votes I'll vote for it.

    I had not realised until now that John Glen directed all those Bond productions - and all were respectable (possibly excluding Octopussy).

    1. For Your Eyes Only (Has the edge over TLD because of those awesome action scenes i.e. Ski chase and Car chase)
    2. The Living Daylights
    3. License To Kill
    4. A View To A Kill
    5. Octopussy
