18. Agreed
Connery was perfect for his time - a no-nonsense man of action. Dalton was perfect for the modern era - a darker and more complex character who clearly had some inner doubts about the things he had to do. He also showed the broadest range of emotions of any Bond portrayer.

I always thought Dalton had exactly the right balance of the character traits Bond showed in the original Fleming books.

Moore just plain sucked in everything but "The Spy Who Loved Me." Brosnan was always solid and believable in the role, though he lacked Dalton's complexity.
