6 Spies Better Than Bond

Cue music.

Daniel Craig has reportedly agreed to do one last “Bond-James Bond” film—no doubt for a boatload of money. Don’t ask me why this is happening. There is every reason to love these movies and rejoice when Bond is back. But, let’s be honest. Daniel Craig is the most lifeless Bond since George Lazenby.

My heartfelt recommendation is to make a commitment now to skip these movies until they come up with a better Bond. While we are all waiting, here is a list of better spies to watch on the silver screen.

6. The Man Nobody Knew: In Search of My Father, CIA Spymaster William Colby (2011)

This film is a fascinating and riveting documentary about CIA Director William Colby made by his son. A rare and unforgettable glimpse into the family life and times of Cold War espionage, The New York Times selected the movie as a “Critic’s Pick.”
