One thing that has never changed about Bond is the overall suaveness. He still wheres the excellent cut suits and still drives the nice cars (the Modern Bond even getting the Aston Martin DB5 back out of retirement). When we first meet Bond he is a humorous yet slightly cold killer. He is licensed to kill and he is quite happy to do so. Some of it is in self defence to be fair, but if he needs to, he does it. He also hates women, or at the least sees them as something he needs to use to get what he wants. Very few refuse him or if they do they soon give in to his charms and trickery.

The later Bonds needed to recover the brand from the Roger Moore campness. Timothy Dalton’s reserved Bond achieves that and Pierce Brosnan is able to balance the menace, silliness and detachment perfectly. However, with the appearance of Jason Bourne Bond had to change and that was certainly the case with Daniel Craig. Who will be next?
