James Bond Ranked: Revisiting 007

In anticipation of James Bond’s return, the That Shelf team has collectively ranked all 24 official instalments in the Eon franchise. (The Thunderball remake Never Say Never Again and the comedy take on Casino Royale have been omitted from this list.) Instead of going through the series chronologically, readers might have fun riding the James Bond franchise from least to greatest. The series admittedly has its ups and downs, and even the die hard James Bond fans contributing to this list find reasons to appreciate both the highs and the lows of the 24 films ranked here.
