In his first incarnation, 007 was a charmer, but he was also a brawler who had no problems throwing down in train cars, shark tanks, and volcanic lairs. In the face of death, Sean Connery’s Bond always kept some quippy and cutting words in his back pocket and exuded an attitude that always made the man feel like he was wearing a tuxedo for all occasions. Though his later brushes with the role would see his James Bond as an older, less serious version of Connery’s former self, there was always an element of cool that only he could bring to even the cheesiest of lines. It’s why Never Say Never Again isn’t a total write-off as a James Bond imitation as, despite its inferior quality, it had that Sean Connery magic to fall back on.
