Positions

Arguments supporting this position

Details

Context

Daniel Craig’s Bond has come up against some of the most elaborate and intriguing villains the Bond franchise has ever produced.

The Argument

Javier Bardem’s Silva in Skyfall was one of the best adversaries the Bond series has crafted. Christoph Waltz’s Blofeld was equally haunting and cunning. [1]

Counter arguments

By that logic, surely Sean Connery would earn the title for going up against Oddjob. Or Roger Moore for taking on the iconic Jaws? These villains were far more uniquely memorable than Craig’s villains. Also, Craig’s villains don’t have the same menacing presence. Oddjob and Jaws always felt like they posed a physical threat to Bond. Waltz’s villain has not such menacing physical quality.

Premises

[P1] The best Bond needs the best villains. [P2] Daniel Craig's Bond had the best villains. [P3] Daniel Craig is the best Bond.

Rejecting the premises

[Rejecting P2] Daniel Craig's Bond did not have the best villains.
