The pandemic tried to put it on pause, but with no mission too impossible for 007, Bond is back on our screens with a bang!

With the much anticipated ‘No Time To Die’ movie finally releasing, we at FandomSpot.com wanted to celebrate the movie’s release, and in 007 style, thought what better way than by revealing the deadliest Bond to date!

Diving deep into the franchise’s data and scouring scenes from the 26 movies and seven actors who have played Britain’s most famous spy since the first movie in 1962, we are so excited to share with you our findings.

Our current 007, Daniel Craig, is in fact the deadliest ‘Bond, James Bond’ in history!

With only four Bond movies to his name, Craig shockingly kills a staggering 59 people on average per movie. Whereas in comparison, the longest running Bond and a favorite to many, Roger Moore, only had an average of 17 kills.

In line with the release of the ‘No Time To Die’ movie and keeping in theme with the name, we also decided to research the average time each version of the spy spent killing per movie.

Our killer count ranking found that deadly Daniel takes down a bad guy every 2 minutes and 30 seconds – no wonder his kill count is in the hundreds!

Check out how deadly your favorite Bond is below…
