Sean Connery, Scottish actor BEST known for playing James Bond, Die Oct. 31. He was 90-years-old. Connery appeared in seven Bond films from 1962 to 1983, tying Roger Moore for most appearances as a renowned Secret agent. After his days as Bond, Connery continued to act for decades, appearing in movies like Indiana Jones and Last Crusade, Hunt for Red October, and Untouchables, for which he won an Academy Award. Conventional wisdom holds Connery was certainly one of the bestif, not the bestto, ever play Bond. His run of 1960s films, like Dr. No and Goldfinger, helped popularize the character, turning it into the world-famous name we know today. Six actors have now played Bond in 24 movies and all actors to play Bond since have been measured against Connerys iconic portrayal. But what do numbers say? Is Connery still the BEST Bond based on data? In word: yes. Connerys Bond films average 71. 6 on Metacriticby, far, BEST of Bond actors. He played Bond in the top two highest rat films, and four of the top six. His WORST rat film, Diamonds Are Forever, is still considered a decent Bond film. Meanwhile, Connery ranks second behind Craig in average global box office, after adjusting to 2020 dollars. Craig's movies average 924. 9 million, while Connery's average 776. 1 million. Roger Moore came in third at 601. 8 million. Craigs movies have Connery in part to thank for the popularity of character. When Connery debuted as Bond in Dr. No in 1962, Bond wasnt close to household name hed become after Connery left the franchise: Connery appeared in three of five Bond films that grossed more than 800 million, adjusting for inflation. Craig might have a narrow box-office edge, but given the advantages his movies had over Connerys, latters performance might actually be the most impressive. Give that he was also the clear winner in terms of critical acclaim, were inclined to anoint Sean Connery as the greatest James Bond of all Time. In this case, conventional wisdom is indeed wise.

15. Diamonds Are Forever

Six different actors have portrayed cold-blood killers willing to do anything for Queen and Country: Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig have all put their own unique twist on character over incredible 24 films. This is a full list of James Bond movies in order with a little bit of information about 25 due in 2020. In interest of full disclosure from top, this is a complete list of all official James Bond movies in order that have been produced by Eon Pictures starting in 1962. You wont see David Niven or Barry Nelson on this list, nor do Never Say Never Again fit in anywhere. If you want to argue whether those should be include, feel free to do so in the comments. This also isn't ranking, you can find that here. After meeting, Bond and Honey ARE kidnapped and taken to Secret Lair where villain Dr. No meets with other SPECTRE members to discuss their latest plans to take over the world. Of course, 007 foils the plot and saves the day and gets the girl. As the series was based on novels by Ian Fleming, many of the tropes that have become ingrain in the series ARE already part of it in the very first film, like girls, booze and arch villains. Featuring an iconic theme song sung by Shirley Bassey, iconic villain in Auric Goldfinger, iconic Bond Girl with the most famous of names, Pussy Galore, played by Honor Blackmon, and iconic henchman in Oddjob, Goldfinger is, to say least, iconic. James Bond travels from London to Miami to Kentucky chasing supervillain Goldfinger and, in the end, saves the day when he foils Goldfinger's plan to rob Fort Knox. This classic was somewhat controversial because children's author Roald Dahl was chosen to be screenwriter, as well as the decision to make Bond look and talk Japanese in a somewhat racist scene that has Sean Connery essentially in yellow-face. It also features The. Interestingly name Bond Girl Kissy Suzuki and once again, James Bond tangles with his old foe Ernst Blofeld, played this time by the great Donald Pleasence. On Her Majestys Secret Service tend to get bad rap from some fans, but it is actually a pretty great James Bond movie with everything fan should want. Blofeld is back, this time played by legendary Telly Savalas. The Bond girl, Tracy, played by Diana Riggs, actually becomes Mrs. James Bond in the movie. George Lazenby has a little more of an edge to his version Of Bond, and this is one of the darker films in the series. Originally, the follow-up to Spy Who loves Me was supposed to be For Your Eyes Only. Instead, producers changed gears on the heels of the massive success of Star Wars in 1977 and put super-Spy James Bond as an astronaut in space. It wasnt good decision.

Bonus: 'Unofficial' James Bond movies

Thunderball Connerys fourth outing as James Bond, has a very similar plot to To Never Say Never Again as mentioned and while its outing from Connerys heyday, sadly it is also pretty dull. Those underwater sequences go on forever but, to be fair, there are some great action moments in Thunderball. 5. Diamonds Are Forever After George Lazenby quit as James Bond, having only starred in 1969s on Her Majestys Secret Service, Connery was rope back in for one more official 007 movie. A Camp and humorous affair, mainly set in Las Vegas, Diamonds Are Forever is something of a guilty pleasure for 007 fans. While Charles Grays take on the closest Blofelds actually ever been, Dr Evil is tremendous fun. 3. Dr No one where it all began still really stands out. Quieter affair that was still working out what Jam Bond on the big screen should look like, Dr No encompasses some of the best aspects of 007 just getting on with espionage. While Honey Ryder, Dr No and his Lair are just as memorable and enjoyable to watch today as they were on release. Something of an overlooked classic, Dr No give franchise foundations it is still building on and evolving from to this day. 2. Goldfinger, without doubt, Goldfinger is both the Connerys and Jam Bond franchises ' most famous movie. From paint Bond girl and Pussy Galore, to Aston Martin DB5s gadgets and villains Oddjob and Goldfinger himself, this is 007 in his absolute prime. However, slower moments just knock this classic off top spot. 1. You Only Live Twice is perhaps unconventional No 1, but we really feel You Only Live Twice is Connerys best Bond movie. Climax To SPECTRE narrative build up since Dr No, Roald Dahl-penned script, take 007 To Japan. There, he meets Blofeld-play brilliantly by Donald Pleasence-face-To-face for the first time in his volcano lair. Spectacular Bond movie that really should have been where Connery left it, after completing something of five-film arc-narrative device used in the Daniel Craig years that will conclude in No Time To Die this November.

ANDERSON TAPES Connery reunites WITH frequent collaborator Sidney Lumet FOR this entertaining thriller about an ex-con looking to pull off an elaborate heist WITH help OF mob.

At just 95 minutes, ANDERSON TAPES is brisk, lively fun that gains a lot of mileage FROM Connerys natural charm and charisma. 19. RUSSIA HOUSE novels OF John le Carre have produced movies both riveting and dull. RUSSIA HOUSE falls somewhere in-between, respectable, well-make adaptation that never really catches fire. Connery plays Barley, British publisher WHO becomes entangled in espionage when a manuscript FROM mysterious Russian woman lands in his lap. 18.

2. Thunderball (1965)

The top-grossing Sean Connery Bond movie, this 1983 film is also one of the better-review Bond movies. Never Say Never Again marked Connery's final 007 appearance and, from a critical standpoint, seems to have benefited from having been released during the reviled tail end of the Roger Moore era. It is good to see Connery's grave stylishness in this role Again, time's Richard Schickel write. It make Bond's cynicism and opportunism seem the product of genuine worldliness as opposed to Roger Moore's mere twirpishness. Despite the presence of Connery, who first embodied Bond on the big screen, this movie wasn't from Eon Productions, making it the second of two non-canonical films on our list.
