Tough Mr Bond can steal the bonus

Best of Fleming's Bond - the top five 007 tales

Casino Royale (1953)

The first and arguably the best Bond of all. 007 saves the world by playing cards with SMERSH agent Le Chiffre. Bond is dismayed when he's assigned the beautiful, but distinctly female, Vesper Lynd as a partner. As romance rises, so does the likelihood for betrayal. Sharply plotted, strong characters and written with pitiless clarity.

Casino Royale

Surprisingly violent and dark, Casino Royale - the latest, and 21st official, James Bond movie - is one of the best action films of the year.

The film, directed by Martin Campbell, features the tough Daniel Craig - Angelina Jolie's lover-cum-rival in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001) - as the British spy, replacing the charming Pierce Brosnan.

Action-packed classic

THE LATEST James Bond movie offers everything you would expect from a 007 flick, but don't expect anything more.

The plot of Die Another Day is not as adventurous as the secret agent himself. All you need to know is that Bond will be your tour guide through Iceland, Havana, London and even Hong Kong.

007's licence to kill Bond
