Need a briefing on each film that is fit for a superspy?

Here, for your eyes only, is our rundown of all the Bond movies in order.

Dr. No (1962)

Director

Terence Young

Starring

Sean Connery – James Bond
Ursula Andress – Honey Ryder
Joseph Wiseman – Dr. No
Jack Lord – Felix Leiter

Synopsis

When a fellow British secret agent goes missing, James Bond is sent to Jamaica to locate him. His investigation leads to a hidden underground base where the sinister Dr. No is plotting to use an energy weapon to mess with a US rocket launch.

Top reasons to watch

1. It’s the OG big-screen Bond adventure that launched the franchise.
2. Connery’s 007 is arguably as close to Ian Fleming’s no-nonsense Bond as anyone got.
3. Ursula Andress walking out of the ocean is one of the most iconic Bond movie moments.


From Russia With Love (1963)

Director

Terence Young

Starring

Sean Connery – James Bond
Daniela Bianchi – Tatiana Romanova
Robert Shaw – Donald ‘Red’ Grant
Pedro Armendáriz – Ali Kerim Bey

Synopsis

Furious that 007 thwarted their agent, Dr. No, evil criminal organisation SPECTRE sets a trap to kill James Bond in Istanbul. With SPECTRE’s top assassin and the Soviets out to stop our man, Bond must help a besotted Russian clerk defect along with her code-breaking device.

Top reasons to watch

1. Bond gets murdered in the pre-credits sequence (kind of).
2. Kerim Bey is one of the all-time great Bond allies.
3. The Orient Express showdown against the assassin Red Grant is nail-biting stuff.


Goldfinger (1964)

Director

Guy Hamilton

Starring

Sean Connery – James Bond
Gert Fröbe – Goldfinger
Honor Blackman – Pussy Galore
Harold Sakata – Oddjob

Synopsis

Gold magnate Auric Goldfinger doesn’t just like the shiny stuff, he’s planning on contaminating the world’s supplies to make the value of his gold bars skyrocket. Great plan, only he didn’t reckon on one very persistent British secret agent…

Top reasons to watch

1. The first truly bonkers, megalomaniac plot in Bond history.
2. Oddjob (and his razor-brimmed bowler hat) are amazing.
3. “No, Mr Bond! I expect you to die!”


Thunderball (1965)

Director

Terence Young

Starring

Sean Connery – James Bond
Claudine Auger – Domino
Adolfo Celi – Largo
Bernard Lee – M

Synopsis

SPECTRE’s latest money-making plot involves stealing two NATO nukes and holding the world to ransom to the tune of £100 million in diamonds. 007’s hunt for the warheads leads to the Bahamas and to the (underwater) doorstep of eye-patch-wearing Emilio Largo. Could he be the mastermind? (Um, yes).

Top reasons to watch

1. It starts off with some great, back-to-basics espionage stuff.
2. Largo’s ship, the Disco Volante, has some eye-popping optional features.
3. The ‘climactic’ undersea battle is slow-motion lunacy but also unmissable.


You Only Live Twice (1967)

Director

Lewis Gilbert

Starring

Sean Connery – James Bond
Mie Hama – Kissy Suzuki
Donald Pleasence – Blofeld
Tetsurô Tanba – Tiger Tanaka

Synopsis

Really leaning into the whole triggering-global-chaos thing, SPECTRE steals both Russian and American manned spacecraft in orbit, hoping to get both sides to blame the other and turn the Cold War thermostat up to ‘fatally irradiated’. Bond’s on the case though, facing off against one Ernst Stavro Blofeld.

Top reasons to watch

1. The capture of the rockets in orbit shows clunky, pre-CGI special effects at their ‘best’.
2. The script was written by Roald ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ Dahl, himself.
3. Implausible lair located in a volcano? This is where that movie trope began.


On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969)

Director

Peter R. Hunt

Starring

George Lazenby – James Bond
Diana Rigg – Tracy
Telly Savalas – Blofeld
Gabriele Ferzetti – Draco

Synopsis

James Bond falls in love and lives happily ever after. Roll credits…
Well, the first part is true, but SPECTRE is hell-bent on thwarting 007’s relationship goals by brainwashing beautiful women to poison the world’s food supplies. OHMSS – come for the positively trippy plot; stay for the genuine heartache in the final act.

Top reasons to watch

1. It’s Australian model, George Lazenby’s first and only Bond film.
2. It’s also simultaneously the most bonkers and most moving of 007’s adventures.
3. Many Bond connoisseurs rate this cult classic in their top five.


Diamonds Are Forever (1971)

Director

Guy Hamilton

Starring

Sean Connery – James Bond
Jill St. John – Tiffany Case
Charles Gray – Blofeld
Lana Wood – Plenty O’Toole

Synopsis

Bond is sent to infiltrate a diamond smuggling ring in glitzy Las Vegas. At first it seems like a pretty chill mission for our favourite superspy, but those diamonds are actually being gathered by SPECTRE and Blofeld to create a space-based laser weapon. Of course they are.

Top reasons to watch

1. Moon. Buggy. Chase.
2. Assassins, Mr Wint and Mr Kidd, are memorably psychotic.
3. The title song isn’t Shirley Bassey’s first Bond belter but it may well be her (and the series’) best.


Live and Let Die (1973)

Director

Guy Hamilton

Starring

Roger Moore – James Bond
Jane Seymour – Solitaire
Yaphet Kotto – Kananga/Mr. Big
Geoffrey Holder – Baron Samedi

Synopsis

While investigating the deaths of three fellow agents, 007 uncovers a plot to monopolise the world’s heroin supply. A shadowy drug baron called Mr Big and a corrupt Caribbean dictator, Dr Kananga, seem connected, but how?

Top reasons to watch

1. Moon. Buggy. Chase.
2. Assassins, Mr Wint and Mr Kidd, are memorably psychotic.
3. The title song isn’t Shirley Bassey’s first Bond belter but it may well be her (and the series’) best.


The Man with the Golden Gun (1974)

Director

Guy Hamilton

Starring

Roger Moore – James Bond
Christopher Lee – Scaramanga
Britt Ekland – Goodnight
Hervé Villechaize – Nick Nack

Synopsis

When international assassin, Francisco Scaramanga, appears to be trolling Bond by sending him a golden bullet etched with ‘007’, James is given the nod to go ‘off book’ to hunt down his new nemesis around some gorgeous bits of Asia.

Top reasons to watch

1. Amazing locations, inspired baddie, awesome hench-person. Peak Bond.
2. The whole three-nipples disguise thing. Most titillating [raises eyebrow]…
3. The hall-of-mirrors/funhouse showdown is fantastically tense.


The Spy Who Loved Me (1977)

Director

Lewis Gilbert

Starring

Roger Moore – James Bond
Barbara Bach – Major Anya Amasova/Agent Triple X
Curd Jürgens – Karl Stromberg
Richard Kiel – Jaws

Synopsis

A reclusive but motivated nutjob, Karl Stromberg, steals nuclear submarines in order to irradiate the land and start a new civilisation under the sea. Bond has to team up with a Russian agent whose lover he killed to take Stromberg down. Awks.

Top reasons to watch

1. It introduces Jaws, a towering, steel-toothed assassin. Not bright, but formidable.
2. Bond’s white Lotus Esprit/submarine (AKA Wet Nellie) is one the best Q inventions ever.
3. Stromberg’s undersea base, Atlantis, is a Bond-baddie design classic.


Moonraker (1979)

Director

Lewis Gilbert

Starring

Roger Moore – James Bond
Lois Chiles – Holly Goodhead
Michael Lonsdale – Hugo Drax
Richard Kiel – Jaws

Synopsis

Why think up a new evil plot when you can recycle the last one, in space to cash in on Star Wars’ box office success? Hugo Drax has stolen his own space shuttle (don’t ask) and aims to poison the earth from orbit where his Noah’s Ark of beautiful humans will reboot humanity. Not if 007 has any say in the matter, though.

Top reasons to watch

1. Hugo Drax is a fantastic villain. ‘Look after Mr Bond – see some harm comes to him’.
2. Bond in space? Laser guns??? If that’s not reason enough to watch, what is?
3. Jaws returns! And, wait for it, he falls in love. Awwww.


For Your Eyes Only (1981)

Director

John Glen

Starring

Roger Moore – James Bond
Carole Bouquet – Melina Havelock
Julian Glover – Kristatos
Topol – Milos Columbo

Synopsis

A British surveillance ship is sunk in the Ionian Sea and its missile command system is stolen. 007 is dispatched to Greece to retrieve it before it can be handed to the Soviets, but his investigation becomes entangled with a young woman’s mission of vengeance.

Top reasons to watch

1. 007 and Melina get chased around Corfu in a dinky, yellow Citroen 2CV. Brilliant.
2. Bond on skis, the bad guys on motorbikes with machine guns. Classic 007.
3. The climactic infiltration of the mountaintop monastery is spectacular.


Octopussy (1983)

Director

John Glen

Starring

Roger Moore – James Bond
Maud Adams – Octopussy
Louis Jordan – Kamal Khan
Steven Berkoff – Orlov

Synopsis

007 almost bites off more than he can chew when a mission to uncover an international jewel-smuggling operation leads to encounters with a mysterious femme fatale, a globe-trotting circus troupe and a plot to nuke a NATO base in Germany.

Top reasons to watch

1. Steven Berkoff going full crazy-eyes as rogue Russian general, Orlov is priceless.
2. 007 tries in vain to warn people about a nuke while dressed as a circus clown.
3. The sky-high fight between 007 and henchman Gobinda on the roof of a plane.


A View to a Kill (1985)

Director

John Glen

Starring

Roger Moore – James Bond
Christopher Walken – Max Zorin
Tanya Roberts – Stacey Sutton
Grace Jones – May Day

Synopsis

Max Zorin’s day job is making microchips, but he has ambitions to create a devastating earthquake, drown Silicon Valley and corner the market, charging whatever he wants. 007 is sent out to uncover the plot and take Zorin down, but has he met his match?

Top reasons to watch

1. 007 invents snowboarding (you’re welcome X Games) in the best ski chase of the series.
2. Grace Jones as May Day and Christopher Walken as Max Zorin. They are SO loving being bad.
3. The pre-CGI fire truck chase through San Francisco features some awesome, old-school stunt driving.


The Living Daylights (1987)

Director

John Glen

Starring

Timothy Dalton – James Bond
Maryam d’Abo – Kara Milovy
Jeroen Krabbé – General Georgi Koskov
Joe Don Baker – Brad Whitaker

Synopsis

Opium, illegal arms sales, Russian defections and exploding milk bottles all feature in a mission that finds 007 double-crossed and trying to keep one step ahead of a resurrected KGB policy, ‘Smiert Spionam’ or ‘Death to Spies’, from Austria to Afghanistan.

Top reasons to watch

1. The first and best of Timothy Dalton’s two Bond films. Underrated.
2. The snowy chase that starts in an Aston Martin and ends sledding a cello case over the Austrian border is inspired.
3. 007 fights a huge henchman inside and outside a flying transport plane while a bomb hidden in one of hundreds of identical sacks ticks down!


The Living Daylights (1987)

Director

John Glen

Starring

Timothy Dalton – James Bond
Carey Lowell – Pam Bouvier
Robert Davi – Franz Sanchez
Benicio Del Toro – Dario

Synopsis

When his good friend, Felix Leiter, is attacked on his wedding day by vicious drug lord Franz Sanchez, Bond’s desire for vengeance sees M revoking his ‘double oh’ licence to kill. But rather than stand down, James goes on the run from MI6 and goes all-in to get Sanchez.

Top reasons to watch

1. Milton Krest’s compression-chamber demise is explosively gross but great.
2. Look out for a fresh-faced Benicio del Toro as Sanchez’s henchman Dario.
3. The petrol-tanker chase through the desert is straight-up bonkers amazing.


Goldeneye (1995)

Director

Martin Campbell

Starring

Pierce Brosnan – James Bond
Sean Bean – Alec Trevelyan
Izabella Scorupco – Natalya Simonova
Famke Janssen – Xenia Onatopp

Synopsis

The Cold War is over but, in the aftermath of the Soviet Union’s collapse, a vengeful former MI6 agent (and former buddy of Bond’s) steals the controls to a Russian satellite weapon capable of frying every computer in London, triggering a global financial meltdown.

Top reasons to watch

1. 007 skydives after and into a fleeing plane!
2. Bond powersliding through the streets of St Petersburg. IN A TANK.
3. Xenia Onatopp is an easy frontrunner for the finest Bond villainess in the series.


Tomorrow Never Dies (1997)

Director

Roger Spottiswoode

Starring

Pierce Brosnan – James Bond
Jonathan Pryce – Elliot Carver
Michelle Yeoh – Wai Lin
Teri Hatcher – Paris Carver

Synopsis

Elliot Carver isn’t your run-of-the-mill toxic-narcissist media mogul. In an attempt to get the biggest scoop in history, he’s been busy engineering events to trigger World War III. Excessive, much? Thankfully, James Bond has other ideas, as does Chinese counterpart, Wai Lin.

Top reasons to watch

1. 007 driving his remote control BMW 750iL from the backseat and clearly having a ball.
2. The Saigon bike chase with Bond and Wai Lin handcuffed together throughout.
3. Elliot Carver is scenery-chewing Bond villainy at its most gleeful.

Sophie Marceau – Elektra King
Robert Carlyle – Renard
Denise Richards – Dr. Christmas Jones

Synopsis

When a billionaire buddy of M’s is assassinated at MI6, 007’s boss appoints Bond to act as bodyguard to the murdered man’s daughter. But as Bond begins his mission to protect her from infamous terrorist-who-feels-no-pain, Renard, it becomes apparent our favourite superspy may be being played. But by whom?

Top reasons to watch

1. Sophie Marceau brings serious acting chops to the mysterious Elektra King.
2. Wait, Denise Richards is a nuclear physicist called Christmas Jones? No notes.
3. The twist! (It’s a good one).


Die Another Day (2002)

Director

Lee Tamahori

Starring

Pierce Brosnan – James Bond
Halle Berry – Jinx Johnson
Toby Stephens – Gustav Graves
Rosamund Pike – Miranda Frost

Synopsis

Bond is captured in North Korea! 14 gruelling months of torture by scorpion, ice and Madonna theme song later he’s released, but when his own side questions his loyalty and fitness for duty he goes rogue – again – to discover who betrayed him. Possibly unrelated question – what’s up with that mad-eyed Icelandic billionaire who’s suddenly appeared on the scene as if from nowhere?

Top reasons to watch

1. Bond with a big bushy beard!
2. Yes, that is an invisible Aston Martin V12 Vanquish (Vanish?)
3. Halle Berry and Rosamund Pike kick all the ass.

Martin Campbell

Starring

Daniel Craig – James Bond
Eva Green – Vesper Lynd
Mads Mikkelsen – Le Chiffre
Giancarlo Giannini – Rene Mathis

Synopsis

We join a fresh-faced James just as he gains his double-oh status (and licence to kill). Bond is then dispatched to bankrupt terrorist financier, Le Chiffre, during a high stakes poker game. Love and double-crosses go hand in hand in this masterful reboot of the franchise.

Top reasons to watch

Gemma Arterton – Strawberry Fields

Following on directly from Casino Royale – a first carry-over for the franchise – Bond is out for revenge against the shadowy organisation that killed his lover, Vesper Lynd (um, spoiler?). Along the way he joins forces with the similarly vengeance-minded Camille and they trail ruthless businessman Dominic Greene to Bolivia.

Top reasons to watch

1. The thunderous opening car chase is muscular, brutal and brilliant.
2. Bond crashes the Quantum organisation’s meeting during an operatic performance.
3. 007 finally catches up with the man responsible for Vesper’s death.


Skyfall (2012)

Director

Sam Mendes

Starring

Daniel Craig – James Bond
Judi Dench – M
Javier Bardem – Raoul Silva
Ralph Fiennes – Gareth Mallory

Synopsis

Bond’s boss, M, is in the crosshairs when a former agent with a major grudge against his old employer attacks MI6 and forces 007 to go on the offensive. Can James stop the cunning but loony-bonkers Raoul Silva before his advanced mummy issues end badly for everyone?

Top reasons to watch

1. “Take the bloody Shot!” M makes a devastating call.
2. James Bond out-flirts main baddie Raoul Silva during their first meeting.
3. 007, M and an old friend go all Home Alone with booby traps at his childhood home.

Andrew Scott – C

When Bond investigates the shadowy organisation behind the shadowy organisation that’s been keeping him busy for the last three films (keep up), he’s not prepared for what he discovers. With his past catching up to him, 007’s mission gets very personal indeed.

Top reasons to watch

1. The Mexico City, day-of-the-dead sequence is worth the admission all on its own.
2. Ernst Stavro Blofeld is… who???

Starring

Rami Malek – Safin

Synopsis

Bond’s early-retirement plan has hit a couple of chassis-wrecking speed bumps. Firstly, Felix Leiter needs his help to locate a missing scientist. And then there’s a genius-level terrorist by the name of Lyutsifer Safin who seems to have some unfinished business with Bond’s bae, Dr. Madeleine Swann. Could the two be connected? Well, duh…

Top reasons to watch

1. It’s Daniel Craig’s final Bond film, and he goes out with a five-star bang.
2. Rami Malek's sinister Safin is a hall-of-fame Bond villain.
3. Lashana Lynch’s Nomi and Ana De Armas's Paloma are ass-kicking double agents to rival Bond himself.
