#SPECTRE: Bond Fights Analysed

film reviews | movies | features | BRWC Skyfall - First Tease Trailer

Ever wanted to know which Ian Fleming’s 007 is the most pugilistic?  How many times his adversaries are electrocuted, karate-chopped or simply dispatched with a humble bikini top?

To coincide with the launch of Spectre, the guys at Lottoland have analysed every fight scene from every film in the franchise –(shot at Pinewood Studios) from Connery via Roger Moore to Craig, and collated the data into a fantastic infographic that answers pressing questions like:

– Which Bond is most violent towards women?
– What are 007’s oddest weapons?
– How many times does James Bond defeat his enemy using a pair of skis?
– Which bond doles out the most punches or slaps?

James Bond Fights

Changing trends in combat choreography over the years are clearly documented, with shift towards ‘realistic’ CQC apparent in the three most recent films. The nature and frequency of fights very much depends on the specific actor portraying Bond, with George Lazenby topping the charts during his sole outing as Great Britain’’s finest –although Daniel Craig’’s Bourne-inspired Bond comes in second place with his own brand of visceral combat.

Chart the rise and fall of attacks including the double hand punch or strangle, and discover how more unorthodox, ‘street fight’ moves such as knees or headbutts have come back into fashion in line with the more ‘realistic’ feel of Sam Mendes’ films.
