In the vein of my earlier top 10 list of James Bond movies, here's a list of the worst Bond movies ever made, till date. 
Because there is not really such a thing as a truly horrible Bond movie, I'm only narrowing it down to 5 movies this time. 
So here it comes! The 5 worst Bond movies ever made. Or well, according to me at least.

5. The Man with the Golden Gun (1974)

The number 5 movie was actually a tough pick. There were so many Bond
movies that applied for this but eventually I decided to go with "The
Man with the Golden Gun", since this is being a Bond movie that by all
rights should had been a great and awesome one. I mean, it has a great
concept, a great villain, played by none other than Christopher Lee,
who has a great and memorable henchman as well.
Yet the movie never really works out as a greatly entertaining, exciting or interesting Bond flick.

4. Thunderball (1965)

Not enough excitement lets this movie feel as one of the weaker- and not
entertaining enough Bond-movies.

3. Tomorrow Never Dies (1997)

Features one of the most unlikely plots. Yes, even for a James Bond movie, it's being ridicules.

2. Quantum of Solace (2008)

Quantum of what? And what was this movie supposed to be all about again?

1. On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969)

Being different is one thing but there is just no good excuse for a James Bond movie being boring!

  1. My response

    5)Dr No
    Despite Andress in glory and opening gambit from Connory, the film itself is weak and very slow. A work in progress but overlooked as a film due to it being number one in the franchise
    4) Octopussy
    Incredibly racially insensitive, lampooning India and first real glimpses of the gadgets being gimics rather than surreptitious
    3) From a View To A Kill-Moore is just too old here, Walken gives a typical crazed performance and Jones is iconic but this is slapstick and Daltons takeover was much needed.
    2) For Your Eyes Only
    Pedestrian plot with Moore looking his oldest, despite his haggard performance in From A View To A Kill, pun heavy and action left much to be desired
    1) Die Another Day
    Just awful, wooden performances, ridicoulous plot from surfing intro to laser sun rays in the Artic. I'm sure Brosnon was contractually obliged to fulfill this film but you could tell he did not want to be there. One of the worst films Ive ever seen.
