Agent 007 has a few things to worry about: high car insurance premiums, sexually transmitted diseases, and if he's registered his Walther PPK handgun in Canada. The one thing he definitely doesn't have to worry about is these (so called) super villains! Stupid villains more likely!
Every time these villains have James Bond right where they want him they never pull out a gun and blow him away. You would think that some heartless and evil person set on world domination would have to think twice about shooting someone and yet when it comes to plugging old James.... THEY CAN'T DO IT.
There was one time in the movie "NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN" that the villainous vixen Fatima Blush (Barbara Carrera) draws a bead on him and is about to shoot him (in the crotch no less) when Bond squirts her with exploding ink from a "Q" gadget pen. She had the right idea but she just took to long. Hey don't get me wrong! I'm not some sadist, nor do i hold anything against James Bond (Connery is still my favourite). It's just that it seems so moronic that these villains keep giving him a chance to get away.
Instead of shooting him, they tie him to a table and try to cut him half with a laser.
They could put poison in his martini but instead they slowly lower him in a tank full of hungry sharks.
They seem to be able to kill some of his love interests and his wife Tracy Bond (Diana Rigg) with no problem. Even his CIA friend Felix got half of his body eaten by a shark.
I know you can't get rid of the hero of the movie ... or maybe you could. Hey! There's an idea for a film! James Bond dies after the first 30 minutes and the rest of the movie is about how everyone deals with the loss. You could call it "Tomorrow Never Dies ... but Bond Finally Does!"
It's something to think about.
