Bond is a unique character due to the ever-changing guard of who will portray him next. Every Bond brings with him his own little quirk or edge to the performance. Whether you hate or love Craig, there is no doubt that his films have been well received by critics and a large assortment of the general public.
No matter how Spectre ends, you are sure to be entertained for the duration of the film.

1 Bond’s Name Is Inspired By A Ornithologist
I do not know about you, but when I think James Bond I immediately think of the super badass Ornithologist who inspired the super spy’s name! Because who needs martinis when we have birds to look at. Ian Fleming, creator of Bond, was also super intrigued by bird watching and thus got the name from James Bond, an author whose book Birds Of The West Indies, Fleming was quite fond of. Thankfully Fleming wrote to Bond first before starting his book series featuring his name. There is no word on how often the original James Bond claimed it was his real name, only to be told that he is obviously trying to pull off a practical joke.
