Craig comes on screen, you think ah, he looks like a rough badie, must be a russian henchman. Now whens Bond going to appear? Sadly than was about ten years ago now and I am still waiting.

Actually, he looks more like an accountant (not to insult real accountants). But I can see as the henchman, with the Villain turning, "Did the money go through?" tap tap tap.... "Yes." and that would be that for Crag's screen time. :cake:

I will always see Craig as a henchman like he was in Tomb Raider and not leading man material. Jeremy Clarkson would make a far more superior Bond than Craig anytime anyday!

That's the nail on the head, he just doesn't really exude the Bond like style that all the others before him have had. Bond films are not about who is the most believable as a cold killer, if we wanted to watch an true to life assassin style film then there are loads of those, Bond is more than that.

I once read how Craig is more sophisticated than Roger Moore. THAT Roger Moore. The epitome of elegance.
Seriously,I am curious what was that person smoking...

That's why Craig plays murderers and psychopaths.

There are other reasons for being attractive - look at all the beautiful women with what would be considered ugly men, so it is obvious that many people find Craig attractive.

The fact is Daniel Craig is not a stereotypically handsome man like Jackman, Brosnan, Dalton, Brad Pitt etc. And so he is not Bond.

Daniel De Vito is not what you would call handsome, but nodoubt has many female admirers.

Craig is the same especially as he has big muscles and money. But he is ugly, not like Fleming described Bond.

As regards Bond 22 being like Licence To Kill - yes that would be great as long as they pretend Casino Royale wasn't made and get rid off all the young Bond arc. and any follow on from Royale.


Craig doesn't look very "aristocratic".

He looks a bit like Steve McQueen in Papillon or some very fit member of French Foreign Legion. Or Putin...

He doesn't have a "pretty" face but quite masculine one.

Women who like him probably like his animalistic energy. Some women have weird hardcore sexual fantasies. He fits in there. But I don't find him very convincing in love scenes, he doesn't seem to have much interest in women.

Welcome penguin! :cheers: :martini:

Funny you mention Craig doesn't show much interest in women I was thinking the same thing, in fact one of my next rants after I finish with Spectre is on just that subject!

Hello Valdore, and welcome. I'm not so much speaking about Craig's Bond but rather Craig's performance itself. I'll get more in to that at a later time. :cheers:

There are no reasons why he can be James Bond. About the only Bond type feature Daniel Craig has is that he is an Englishman.

In the poll I voted for lacks Bond essence.

Bond essence covers all the aspects Craig lacks. It's no just the looks. It's elegance,sophistication,charisma. And he lacks that all too desperately. Good knows what Barbara saw in him.
