    The biggest fuck you to any of the Craig doubters was the fact that he gave us arguably the best bond film in his debut. Casino Royale is a masterpiece

    One of the main reasons why Daniel was great as Bond was because he seemed real. He was very believable. That's why he was great. His Bond was not jokey and obviously unreal. His Bond felt very real. Great job.

      I agree with this. No one truly understands what the guy went through to make these films. I know he’s proud of his 5 films and walking away after No Time To Die was hard for him especially that ending and his films are their own self contained series he re defined 007 and made him a human being first and foremost. A superb journey.

      @melisa GALVALIZI You seem to have fallen into the trap of only knowing part of the story. You try doing something new tomorrow, only to find the internet pulling you apart for days and weeks after..... then suddenly everyone realises you were actually amazing at it, and you wake up the next day to 200 people ouside your home, you cant go out, have a meal or a pint in the local your kids routines are messed up as they are being hounded going to school... everyone wants you to do this and that... you spend months away from home, to come back to crazy town... see how that effects your mental health..... you might make a few moans and groans alomng the way.

    These particular Bond films saved my life and gave me a creative career. I have bipolar disorder and wrote a memoir about my recovery after seeing Casino Royale called Letters to Daniel. I made the film. It won over 100 awards. It got streaming, DVD, and limited theatrical distribution. Thank you for casting him. Thank you for these films. Collectively you all gave me my dream career and life. ❤

    Craig had the longest tenure but he was also the only Bond who had a character arc and a beginning middle and end. Even in his weaker films he was the best part. He left some pretty big shoes to fill.

      Longest because this last movie should be released in 2019 but because the pandemic it was released in 2021. Only time will tell if Craig´s movies will have any importance in the future. I bet not.

    For me, Bond was always movies I didn't take seriously. Sure, they were fun and fantastical and you could watch it and forget it. Daniel Craig's Bond, and Barbara and Michael's vision of how he could be that character, changed all that. Suddenly it had bite, it had grit, it felt a bit more real and closer to home, even if there are things still that nods at the old Bond. I loved this Bond. He was solid. I hope the press however, take a good look in the mirror, cause their reporting leading up to the first movie was horrendous.

    • army_dreamer_80

    Daniel Craig redefined the bond franchise with his performance as Bond. This is why he’s my favourite James Bond.

    • Randall Rutherford

      I became a James Bond fan when Daniel Craig played bond for the first time in casino Royale and that enabled me to go back and become a huge fan of all of the previous bonds as well so now I love them all but you really have to respect Daniel Craig for what he did and the ark that he really brought with his portrayal to be complete. I absolutely adore him as James Bond among others

    • Diogo Catalano

      True. Before Craig, Bond was performed by good looking actors and now he became just a well dressed John Doe.

    I’m a huge fan of them all. I was skeptical. Bond is not blonde! He will be hard to follow. He brought a physicality like no one before. Masculinity . Daniel Craig is also an extraordinary dramatist. I can’t believe his run is over. Iconic Bond. Stellar , Mr. Craig. 👏

    What an unexpectedly moving little insight into the role of a lifetime. Awesome that the shower scene- which is one of the best romance scenes ever, in or out of a Bond film- came to be because Daniel understood that the moment was so important, traumatic, and fertile for what became truly the best moment in James Bond’s fifty year story. We’ll miss you, Dan.

    I grew up during the Roger Moore Bond era and have seen most of the films. By the end of Pierce’s run they had become almost cringe induced camp. When Daniel started with Casino Royal the franchise seemed to get revitalized and the films were really good again. Of course he had the one liners but something about him doing the delivery made it work spectacularly. I wasn’t expecting No Time To Die to do what it did (no spoilers from me 🤫) and I’m really sad Daniel’s run has come to an end. I hope the next actor is ready for it because the shoes left for him to step in are colossal in size and scope. Thank You to Everyone involved with the last 15 years.

    I have watched this retrospective many times because I am just so proud of Daniel. The best part is how he prevailed and proved all the naysayers wrong. Man that has got to be a sweet feeeling to get the last laugh and become the best Bond ever. As one of the reviewers wrote: "Craig is not a good Bond. He is a great Bond."

    I grew up watching Jame Bond movies starting with Connery who I always thought was the best but after watching Craig I have to put him into a whole other category. He was amazing right out of the gate with Casino Royale right through to No Time To Die which was perfection! I don’t know how they will find another 007 or a story that will be as good but that is what we all wait for.

    • Alexei M S Cruz
      Alexei M S Cruz Year ago +4

      especially when they decided to kill Bond off in No Time to Die (spoiler alert)... I've always held the belief when a beloved character is killed off in any series or franchise, it is considered a closure... and it would be difficult if the character would come back alive either by the same actor or a different one and he/she doesn't deliver, they would actually kill the franchise and the character... Craig's replacement had better carry Bond as his own and not a clone or facsimile of the other Bonds...

    Daniel Craig is my Bond. He was the first Bond I ever saw on the big screen and his run will always be my favorite as the character. Casino Royale, Skyfall, and No Time to Die are all incredible films and are some of my favorite films of all time. While Quantum and Spectre may not be as good as the other three, I love all Craig's films. You will be missed!

      I was born at 10:07 AM 6/9/56. I was destined to be a Bond fanatic.
      From the time my dearly departed wonderful father took me to see Goldfinger,
      I was hooked at 8 years old. "I suppose you want me to talk?" laser making its way toward his naughty bits. "No, Mr bond i want you to die!" LOL I really liked SPCTERE. Especially the scene with the watch, and how Blofeld got his scar. Waltz is a truly great actor too, and the best Blofeld, bald or not, he had that Persian.cat. (My family had one for 17 years gray as Soot, so that's what I named him.) I also watched the original Star Trek with my folks, and I love that franchise also. I could play Blofeld too: almost all my hair fell out by the time i was 25, so I just shave it.
      Anonymous15 December 2017 at 04:16
      to be precise, its not JUST a white Persian cat. The cat is a 'Shaded Silver Chinchilla fur Persian", a hybrid cat that has dark rings like eyeliner around its eyes, bright greenish blue eyes, and a silvery tint over a white undercoat.

    I remember when I had first heard that Daniel Craig was going to be the new Bond, I was ecstatic! I had seen him in that small but powerful role in the movie "Elizabeth" and I thought "oh my God, he will make an awesome James Bond"! I have seen all the other actors portray Bond before him and while each brought their "own" as Bond, no one brought the depth of character, the raw emotion, the intensity that Daniel Craig brought to the role. Daniel, you will be sorely missed as Bond and will be difficult to watch without you in this most iconic role. Look forward to other films you do as the years go by... loved "Knives Out", by the way. Just shows what a versatile actor you truly are. You will be missed Daniel Craig💞

      @Bern St Depends on how much time was supposed to have passed between Quantum and Skyfall. The flow of time in Craig's films is weird, because in Casino, Bond had just become a OO, yet in Skyfall they talk about him like he's over the hill and ready for retirement. Yet the end of Skyfall looks like it's setting up vintage Bond who has completed his heroes journey and is ready dedicate himself to Her Majesty's Secret Service.

    This was an awesome video. My whole family and I went and saw Casino Royale in 2006 on a beach vacation, and it was the last movie I was able to watch in theaters with my grandma before she passed away.
    Both my grandparents, my mom, and myself are poker players/gamblers (for better or worse 😂), and Casino Royale is one of the last great memories I had with my grandma before she died.
    So despite the fact I was a hardcore Bond fan since I began watching/studying films as a kid, and playing the video games, these five films are sentimental to me.
    Thank you, Daniel Craig, you’re the man! You knocked it out of the park.

    Thank you Daniel Craig for 15 years of Bond, James Bond. It is really sad to see you leave the role after 5 films, though I know we'll see you again in other roles. Its going to be very weird and interesting adjust to the series with Bond 26 when the new person takes over, but for my money you were the best Bond we've ever had. I will forever be grateful for all the work you have done on; Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall, Spectre and No Time To Die. Thanks for the emotional journey of Bond and re-inventing the series after Die Another Day.

      Yeah, just wish he'd done more than 5 films during those 15 years (despite his injuries). Roger Moore did 7 films in 12 years. Would've loved it if Craig had also done 7. Or even 8 in his 15 years and would've become the longest-serving Bond not just by years, but also by number of films too. But cuz of these production and company issues often happening between films and causing long delays, it weren't to be. But all the same, still loved Craig in his 5 films. And yes, gonna be weird when they announce the 007th Bond.

      @Andrew Chapman yeah I could see him go on forever but we know that every bond actor has to leave at some point but 5 is still a great amount and it’s lovely that each actor has a different number of films; Connery - 6 (officially), Lazenby - 1, Moore - 7, Dalton - 2, Brosnan - 4 and Craig - 5. I’m curious to see how long the new person will stay in the role for but yeah Craig’s era, what a journey but it’ll be fun to marathon all 5 movies.

    I thought he was great as Bond. A physical actor with an emotional depth. Bond is a brawler, ex-Navy, tough as old leather, but he's also charming and stylish. Craig captured that.

    Daniel Craig brought the James Bond franchise right to the 21 century; gave breath to 007 with a modern twist that immortalized James Bond forever.

    I didn't think Craig exemplified bond, but I was so wrong! He brought the badass in him! The sadistic side of a secret agent and the true horror villains must face confronting him. He flipped the script and turn the bond world upside down inside out; turning his skills to another level! Now it's idris Elba's turn!!

    First, Thank you for this documentary. Absolutely smashing, and does credit to Daniel Craig's tenure as James Bond. Being a fan of the bond Franchise for quite awhile, I can honestly say that Daniel Craig for me is the quintessential Bond. What he brought to the character, a human grittiness and not polished like many of his predecessors, for me this is why he will be THE Bond. Thank you Daniel for the years of great cinema.

      How did he inspired and transformed you? Because, although Bond is not a role model, of all the incarnations, Craig's is the most emotionally immature and less sophisticated of them all.

    I think it will be very difficult to find another Daniel Craig. he is the perfect "double o seven" character. I feel like being James Bond every time I watch the movies. Daniel Carig is very special.


    Daniel was a fantastic James Bond; a class act from start to finish.

      I remember being like 13 years old in 2006 and not liking Casino Royale because it lacked all the cool gadgets/gimmicks etc, just a few years down the line I realized the benchmark Daniel set in the Bond industry starting with the gem of a bond movie being Casino Royale.

    After 15 years it feels so bittersweet saying goodbye to Craig playing this character
    He’s done wonders for the franchise
    I’m so happy he took the role and that my late father was a Bond fan back in 1962
    If it wasn’t for him I wouldn’t have been a big fan either

    I have to admit I was one of those people at the time who did not initially like the idea of Daniel Craig being the next James Bond but as time went on I began to change my mind about him he was the ultimate savage Bond he brought with him a sense of ferocity that previous Bonds just didn't have yet he could also be calm and stoic and for that I'll miss him.

    The movies are even more remarkable after this honest insight! As a viewer I never could have imagined what they were going through, especially Daniel with his injuries and the psychological burden. Nobody knew what he was going through while filming spectre and frankly no wonder he reacted the way he did when asked about a next movie, that's human. Thankfully he recovered and did another one! I'll always be grateful for the work Daniel did and it'll be be a pleasure to rewatch the movies, always

    While Craig will always be referred to as James Bond in every story written about him for the rest of his life, he is a fine actor with an impressive non-Bond resume. I look forward to the next great role he will be remembered for, as I am sure it will happen.

    I remember watching Craig on A Kid In King Arthur’s Court when I was about 5 or 6 years old but it wasn’t until Casino Royale where he really got my attention when I was 12 and that’s when I really fell in love with the Bond franchise. I was familiar with the character before playing The World Is Not Enough on N64 and Nightfire on Xbox but at 12 years old and even on my 13th birthday when I saw Skyfall, the Bond franchise is everything to me. I enjoy every single Bond movie, even the ones that aren’t great, I still love them. No Time To Die was an excellent send off for Craig’s iteration and I’m looking forward on who will be the next James Bond. And my choices are Henry Cavill, Tom Hiddleston, Richard Madden and Damian Lewis.

    Until I’ve watched “Casino Royale”
    I’ve bought them all and this kind of documentary made me feel like revisiting the whole 5 movies and savourant every second of it!!!!
    Daniel Craig has brought so much depth to the character. He’s no longer a spy, he is a real human being with a spy shield, which shield has cracks showed in every movie!

    In my childhood, it was Pierce Brosnan who defined the role of James Bond and I've fond memories of that style of Bond movies. But this emotional journey of Daniel Craig Bond era resonates in a very different way. From starting of my college days to my professional career, this man and these films has given plenty of memories for a lifetime for me and for transitional generation of men and women. Thank you Daniel Craig, for your raw, humane, warm and coolest portrayal of the iconic James Bond character. Looking forward to a new Bond era soon for a different audience. :D

    I grew up with Craig's Bond when I was 3 with a bootleg copy of Casino Royale. Now I'm 18 in college, and although I missed the part of watching it on the big screen thanks to COVID, I'm greatful that I managed to see an era coming to an end in a high note. Thank you Daniel for marking my interest in Bond, and the cinema landscape in general.
    I tip my hat to the next actor and his iteration. Don't fuck it up.

    A gifted actor who brought something truly special to this franchise. He brought a gravitas that will be hard to replicate in the future. He made Bond dangerous and vulnerable. He made a fictional character real, he brought truthful emotion to a character that can easily be played in a 2 dimensional way.

First Bond Film I saw in theaters was Skyfall with my Dad when I was 13 on opening night. It goes down as the best cinema experience I have ever had. Now I am 23 and I have Seen every one since with him in theaters. Thank you Daniel Craig.

    Roger Moore was the Bond of my teenage years. Craig is my favourite Bond ever. Craig’s idea of the shower scene was absolutely perfect. Mr. Craig caught my eye in the movie “ The Ice House”. Glad his talent took him to world wide recognition. 😊🇨🇦
