10 Badass James Bond Moments Starring Daniel Craig
Spectre is upon us! To celebrate Daniel Craig’s fourth outing as 007, we count down the most bad ass moments from Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace and Skyfall!
10. ICE COLD BOND (SKYFALL)
There’s always a way out of a sticky situation when you’re James Bond. Even if it means nearly drowning beneath the ice of a small pond. The Bond Pond if you will since it’s technically his property.
Normally, I would find a clip but I found some behind the scenes footage instead. I’ve always been fascinated by underwater photography.
9. BOND ON A BOAT (QUANTUM OF SOLACE)
In Quantum of Solace, Bond drives a motorcycle, a car and a plane but nothing compares to the boat!
8. TRAIN EXCAVATION (SKYFALL)
So James Bond gets shot while driving an excavator on a moving train over a bunch of VW Beetles before using the vehicle as a bridge between two train car…
Just watch the clip. It’s awesome.
7. KEY CHAIN GRENADE (CASINO ROYALE)
Hah! Take that stupid screw face James Bond! I didn’t need the gas truck to explode on impact with that plane! Le Chiffre’s plan to bet against the stock market will go according to plan because I can remote detonate an explosive device!
Hey what’s that beeping?
6. BOND AT THE OPERA (QUANTUM OF SOLACE)
Who needs guns, explosives and chase sequences to be a bad ass? Why not crash an Opera party and make enemies with every single leader of a secret evil organization?
“Can I offer an opinion? I really think you people should find a better place to meet“
5. ASTON MARTIN (SKYFALL)
This entry may be a bit of a cheat since it’s powered by nostalgia but I actually don’t feel that bad. After disappearing with M, Bond opens up his storage revealing a classic Bond vehicle. As an added bonus we also get the classic Bond theme as they drive away.
4. STRAIGHT FLUSH (CASINO ROYALE)
“I’m sorry, that last hand… Nearly killed me.”
Hey blood weeper? How’s that full house taste now?
3. PARKOUR BOND (CASINO ROYALE)
This was a crucial scene to sell Daniel Craig as a newer, different James Bond. A powerful, agile, ruthless bad ass.
2. TO THE RIGHT! (CASINO ROYALE)
… I’m a male human being…
Just in case you doubted why Bond is a bad ass in this moment. I would have told them anything they wanted to know the second they cut the hole in that chair.
1. 007 STATUS CONFIRMED (CASINO ROYALE)
Black and white. Beautifully shot. Bond. James Bond.
Daniel Craig everyone!
