Director: Sam Mendes

Critics Consensus: Brutal and breathless, Quantum Of Solace delivers tender emotions along with frenetic action, but coming on the heels of Casino Royale, it's still a bit of a disappointment.
Starring: Daniel Craig, Olga Kurylenko, Mathieu Amalric
Director: Marc Forster
Casino Royale (2006)
95%
89%
Critics Consensus: Casino Royale disposes of the silliness and gadgetry that plagued recent James Bond outings, and Daniel Craig delivers what fans and critics have been waiting for: a caustic, haunted, intense reinvention of 007.

Director: Martin Campbell

Director: Lee Tamahori

Critics Consensus: Plagued by mediocre writing, uneven acting, and a fairly by-the-numbers plot, The World Is Not Enough is partially saved by some entertaining and truly Bond-worthy action sequences.

Director: Michael Apted

Critics Consensus: A competent, if sometimes by-the-numbers entry to the 007 franchise, Tomorrow Never Dies may not boast the most original plot but its action sequences are genuinely thrilling.

Director: Roger Spottiswoode
GoldenEye (1995)
78%
83%
Critics Consensus: The first and best Pierce Brosnan Bond film, GoldenEye brings the series into a more modern context, and the result is a 007 entry that's high-tech, action-packed, and urbane.

Director: Martin Campbell

Critics Consensus: License to Kill is darker than many of the other Bond entries, with Timothy Dalton playing the character with intensity, but it still has some solid chases and fight scenes.
Starring: Timothy Dalton, Carey Lowell, Robert Davi
Director: John Glen
71%
66%
Critics Consensus: Newcomer Timothy Dalton plays James Bond with more seriousness than preceding installments, and the result is exciting and colorful but occasionally humorless.

Director: John Glen

Critics Consensus: Absurd even by Bond standards, A View to a Kill is weighted down by campy jokes and a noticeable lack of energy.
Starring: Roger Moore, Christopher Walken, Tanya Roberts
Director: John Glen

Critics Consensus: While the rehashed story feels rather uninspired and unnecessary, the return of both Sean Connery and a more understated Bond make Never Say Never Again a watchable retread.
Starring: Sean Connery, Klaus Maria Brandauer, Max von Sydow
Director: Irvin Kershner
Octopussy (1983)
42%
47%
Critics Consensus: Despite a couple of electrifying action sequences, Octopussy is a formulaic, anachronistic Bond outing.

Director: John Glen

Critics Consensus: For Your Eyes Only trades in some of the outlandish Bond staples for a more sober outing, and the result is a satisfying adventure, albeit without some of the bombastic thrills fans may be looking for.
Starring: Roger Moore, Lois Maxwell, James Villiers
Director: John Glen
Moonraker (1979)
60%
43%
Critics Consensus: Featuring one of the series' more ludicrous plots but outfitted with primo gadgets and spectacular sets, Moonraker is both silly and entertaining.
Starring: Roger Moore, Lois Chiles, Michel Lonsdale
Director: Lewis Gilbert
79%
76%
Critics Consensus: Though it hints at the absurdity to come in later installments, The Spy Who Loved Me's sleek style, menacing villains, and sly wit make it the best of the Roger Moore era.
Starring: Roger Moore, Curd Jürgens, Barbara Bach
Director: Lewis Gilbert
45%
56%
Critics Consensus: A middling Bond film, The Man With the Golden Gun suffers from double entendre-laden dialogue, a noteworthy lack of gadgets, and a villain that overshadows 007.
Starring: Roger Moore, Christopher Lee, Britt Ekland
Director: Guy Hamilton
66%
65%

Critics Consensus: George Lazenby's only appearance as 007 is a fine entry in the series, featuring one of the most intriguing Bond girls in Tracy di Vincenzo (Diana Rigg), breathtaking visuals, and some great ski chases.
Starring: George Lazenby, Telly Savalas, Diana Rigg
Director: Peter Hunt

69%
Critics Consensus: With exotic locales, impressive special effects, and a worthy central villain, You Only Live Twice overcomes a messy and implausible story to deliver another memorable early Bond flick.
Starring: Sean Connery, Donald Pleasence, Tetsuro Tamba
Director: Lewis Gilbert
Casino Royale (1967)
29%
35%
Critics Consensus: A goofy, dated parody of spy movie clichés, Casino Royale squanders its all-star cast on a meandering, mostly laugh-free script.

Director: Richard Talmadge, Kenneth Hughes, John Huston
Thunderball (1965)
86%
73%

Starring: Sean Connery, Adolfo Celi, Claudine Auger
Director: Terence Young
Goldfinger (1964)
96%
89%
Critics Consensus: Goldfinger is where James Bond as we know him comes into focus - it features one of 007's most famous lines ("A martini. Shaken, not stirred") and a wide range of gadgets that would become the series' trademark.
Starring: Sean Connery, Gert Fröbe, Honor Blackman
Director: Guy Hamilton

96%
82%
