Top 10 Most Mindblowing Bond Moments
In honor of the 50th anniversary of the James Bond franchise and the release of Skyfall, we look back at the best action-packed moments of his career.
6. "Don't you want to know why?" in Licence to Kill
The most intense fight scenes, says Williams, are the ones against the villiains that Bond has very personal investments in killing. For example, Bond spent an entire film hunting down drug lord Franz Sanchez because he killed two of Bond's close friends, Felix and Della. As Bond is about to off Sanchez, he asks him, "Don't you want to know why?" Then he presents a lighter that Felix and Della gave him, which he uses to send Sanchez to his fiery grave.
5. The car kick in For Your Eyes Only
That being said, "when it comes right down to it, Bond is an assasin," Williams notes. And although we love him, his job requires him to be pretty cold-blooded and heartless sometimes. A perfect example of this is when Emile Leopold Locque's car is balancing precariously on the edge of a cliff. Bond has the option to let him slide or, well...let him fall. Not only does Bond choose not to help, he gives the car the kick it needs to go over. Pretty badass.
