When you take on the role of James Bond there is only one thing the world guarantees for sure. You’re going to take lots and lots of unsubstantiated crap from fans and critics alike for the rest of your existence. While I’m also sure there are some excellent perks to the job, it seems that every Bond besides Connery has gotten the ill end of a harsh bashing. Even Daniel Craig took heat until Casino Royale graced the screen, immediately shutting up the neighsayers behind a veil of shame.
Some Bonds, however, still take the brunt of criticism even after they’ve proven themselves. This was the case for George Lazenby, but mostly true for the short-lived 007 career of Timothy Dalton. Even when praised it seems that Dalton is never quite given the respect he deserves for the two films that he did.
