JB vs JB

Filed under: Comedy-Keemedy — Santhosh @ 2:51 PM

The James Bond series of movies have been taking a beating for offering up bland and superannuated action sequences. The Bourne series in particular has forced Bond to move out into more action rather than the corny one-liners and ludicrous gadgets. But who would win the battle of the spies, if James Bond and Jason Bourne went head to head?

I hate to sound like Rameez Raja’s commentary here, but really, it depends on which Bond we’re talking about, even if it’s all the same script.

Sean Connery’s Bond vs. Bourne : Pretty close, but I’d have to give it to Bourne – his martial arts skills may just be too good for the old fistfighter.
George Lazenby’s Bond : Bourne needn’t bother turning up. Lazenby would have tripped down the stairs in that ridiculous skirt of his from On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.
Roger Moore’s Bond : Oh, puhleese. Bourne. In about four seconds.
Timothy Dalton’s Bond : Bourne. Dalton would get The Living Daylights beaten out of him in no time.
Pierce Brosnan’s Bond : Bourne, if the relatives of Brosnan’s dead sidekicks don’t get to him first.
Daniel Craig’s Bond : Bourne, even if this should be about the closest as both are skilled martial artists and Craig looks tough. But I’d still give it to Bourne because of his superior close-in fighting skills and because he can hang off window ledges better.
Ian Fleming’s James Bond : Bond would finish Bourne in his sleep, then go and seduce that Canadian girlfriend of Bourne’s. Shaken, not stirred.

  2. @crazybuggalolthat’s coz these damn movie makers have cut off all the random parts we have in the novel, and so we end up with the movie that has just what’s required for the complex plot…the Bond movies by the way are way off the track from the Bond novels

  3. Connery would have seduced the girlfriend first, then shot Bourne while ordering a martini (shaken, not stirred). All while wearing a white dinner jacket.

  6. cha cha… the problem is the comparison is too low grade… CID (Jai) Shankar would bust Bond AND break Bourne, even as he sings a duet with the villain’s stupid mistress…Alexander (Gabutan) just needs a tailcoat to finish off everyone of Bond’s coolest gadgets… MGR can pass off as a top spy with just a little machcham on his left cheek, against Bond’s false face and voice generator thingies….Kollywood RAACKZZZ

  7. I think I would want to have Jason Bourne protecting me, but would rather dash off for a good time with James. (I’ll have to think about this… I would love, love, love to be a Bond girl.) Anyway, I love both of them!

  11. Bond would eventually win because, unlike Bourne, he never ages and comes back with a massive face lift every 6-7 years.
