MOVIE POLL: Do you prefer your Bond with or without gadgets?

Nov. 6, 2012by: Alejandro Stepenberg

Do you prefer your Bond with or without gadgets?

Gadgets! I like Bond best when he's basically MI6's Batman
No gadgets! I like Bond best when he is forced to improvise
Maybe gadgets! I like a few practical tools rather than the "one-off wizardry" of later films

I wouldn't mind the gadgets. They can make it similar to the Nolan TDK trilogy, where they were awesome to have, but practical and somewhat grounded in reality. None of that "Cigarette Death Ray" silliness.

A little bit of gadgets wouldn't hurt. Something that would act as concealed weapons and wouldn't arouse any suspicion, i.e. the laser Omega Seamaster watch in GoldenEye.

bad question.whats next? Do you like Bond with or without Bond girls?! I think you need to rephrase that question.btw,Bond isnt copying Batman,Batman is copying Bond eg.,TDKR-The World is not Enough.i like to see Practial or special custom made gadgets for Bond instead of sci-fi gadgets.btw,Mercedes already made an invisible car using the same technology

I'm thinking the Batman joke hurt that voting option. I still picked it because I grew up on those kind of Bond movies. If there's no gadgets there better be a good plot like in CR. True story: I remember after Quantum Of Solace goes off, a guy behind me in the theater was pissed. He was like, "Mannnn... what the hell?! No gadgets or anything in this movie. This movie sucked!" I laughed out loud. I still enjoyed QOS because I understood it wrapped up CR and finish telling Bond's story.

Bond spent more time doing action-stuff than spy-stuff like "See?! I can also kick as much ass as Jason Bourne!!"

I'd love Bond to be armed with gadgets that make sense...gizmos that are disguised as everyday objects but have concealed functions, or serve multiple purposes.

Practical gadgets

Even "From Russia with Love" which is the template for the more grounded take on Bond gave him tools e.g trick suitcase, bug detector, but didn't let it become goofy. I think that method strikes the perfect balance, i havent seen "Skyfall" yet but im quessing with Q back so are the gadgets.

Definitely the more practical the gadget, the better.
Personally my favorite Bonds have always been the ones more grounded in reality. Bond granted did become synonymous with gadgets but give me From Russia With Love or The Living Daylights any day over say Moonraker or Die Another Day.
Ok an argument could be made that Living Daylights has rocket launchers in the car, true, but I'll take that over it turning invisible.
