James Bond, most iconic and well-known action franchise of all time is back again with its amply awaited 25th movie “No Time To Die” and is all set to hit the Cinemas on 30th September 2021. The James Bond series focuses on a fictional British Secret Service agent created in 1953 by writer Ian Fleming. Excitement for the film is sure at its peak for it stars Daniel Craig making his fifth and final bow as the fictional British MI6 agent that audiences simply can’t seem to get enough of.

With the great Bond movies and the actors that have made the franchise so loved and memorable, here are the: 5 James Bond movies that are a must watch before the release of No Time To Die

 

  1. Goldfinger (1964):

The plot involves Bond, played by the spectacular Sean Connery, trying to stop the nefarious Auric Goldfinger (Gert Fröbe) from enacting his silly plan to tank the price of gold, which will make him even richer. Bond villains typically have convoluted plans, but Goldfinger comes back around to being kind of brilliant, and that freewheeling nature permeates the rest of the film.

 

  1. Golden Eye (1995):

This James Bond movie was directed by Sam Mendes. Agent 007 (Pierce Brosnan), along with Natalia Simonav, travels to Russia to locate the satellite nuclear weapon stolen by Alec, a former agent, who Bond believed was dead. The film acknowledges that he’s a relic who needs to reinvent himself to enter the looming 21st century, and the movie kind of gets there. It’s still a little gadget-happy and a little influenced by Tom Clancy books and their concern for geopolitics.

 

  1. Casino Royale (2006):

Casino Royale reimagined the James Bond character into someone who is less tech-involved than the previous iterations. Actor Daniel Craig also took over as the new face of the popular movie franchise, giving the new James Bond a different style and tone. This movie was released in 2006. The film sees our favourite Special Agent embark on a mission to prevent Le Chiffre, a mob banker, from winning a high stakes poker game.

 

  1. Skyfall (2012):

Skyfall is a different sort of Bond movie. Unlike other Bond films where the threat is of external nature, Skyfall tells the tale of a compromised MI6 where M – MI6’s leader (played by Judy Dench) is forced into hiding when the mistakes she has made in the past threaten to take down the entire organization from the inside out.

 

  1. Spectre (2016):

Spectre is a 2015 spy film and the twenty-fourth in the James Bond series. It is the fourth film to feature Daniel Craig as the fictional MI6 agent James Bond, and the second film in the series directed by Sam Mendes following Skyfall.
