Die Another Day : worst Bond girl EVER

worst Bond girl EVER

Halle Berry was the most unbelievable agent in any Bond film EVER. she jerks her pistol forward when she shoots a doctor at point blank range, she very clearly does not use the sights on the same pistol when firing at a target from 50 yards away, and she totally throws a knife like a girl near the end. i blame the director.

Re: worst Bond girl EVER

The worst Bond Girl ever in the role she was given was Denise Richards - hot as she was, she just wasn't believable in that role. Berry was the second worst.

Re: worst Bond girl EVER

Both were lame as hell. Compared to the classic Bond girls of the past they failed miserably

Re: worst Bond girl EVER

I concur. I'm happy we never got a spin-off with Jinx, of all the Bond girls who could've gotten their own series they thought Jinx would've been the best choice? Why? Because she was played by Halle Berry?

Re: worst Bond girl EVER

Berry was terrible. Ever since she ascended from the water in the bar scene in Cuba, I lost interest in the movie. She didn't really bring anything to advance the plot.

My top worst Bond Girls are Denise Richards, Tanya Roberts, and Halle Berry.

Re: worst Bond girl EVER

She's one of the worst Bond girls ever because of her reprehensible acting. She's horrible.

Re: worst Bond girl EVER

Actually, Lana Wood in DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER was undeniably the poorest excuse for a Bond girl I've ever seen. For those who might not remember, she played a dim-bulb brunette hooker named "Plenty O'Toole"

Emphasis on the "tool."

Re: worst Bond girl EVER

i thought she was only in the movie for 5 minutes

Re: worst Bond girl EVER

Five minutes too long, as far as I'm permanently concerned.

Re: worst Bond girl EVER

Her sister was pretty good

Re: worst Bond girl EVER

Just finished it, and my first thought was to post exactly this.

Re: worst Bond girl EVER

I liked Halle as Jinx. I loved Denise as Christmas. Lana did what she was supposed to. But wasn't the worst Bond girl ever Stacey Sutton as played by that radio dj from those telly softcore porno flicks, Tanya Roberts? (I liked her too) or Britt Ekland as Mary Goodnight. And Lynn Holly Johnson as Bibi.

Then again, there is NO such thing as a 'bad' Bond girl. Or is there?

Re: worst Bond girl EVER

that blonde rocked my world
while halle berry sucked big time

Re: worst Bond girl EVER

I don't like Jinx one bit, but she's not the worst Bond girl in the series. Just off the top of my head Christmas Jones, Kissy, Rosie Carver, and Plenty O'Toole are all worse.

6. Jinx Johnson (Halle Berry) - Die Another Day

http://whatculture.com/film/8-worst-bond-girls-of-all-time.php/4


Note to self, Charlize Theron said after winning an Oscar for Monster. Do not become Halle Berry.

You can see what motivated her comment Gothika, Catwoman and X-Men: The Last Stand are not the kinds of pictures an Oscar winner should be making. Then theres Die Another Day, where all Halles character has to do is model a bikini and get rescued a lot.

When we first meet Jinx, shes an enigma wrapped up in a puzzle inside a mystery, a seemingly cold-hearted killer capable of carrying out an assassination and evading capture, but as soon as she meets Bond, she becomes a shrieking damsel in distress who cant go 5 minutes without getting herself kidnapped.

In the movies second half, Bond has to perform no less than 3 dashing rescues, saving her from a rogue laser, a collapsing ice fortress and Gustav Gravess getaway plane. (Note to NSA agents do not become Jinx Johnson). Even though the movie was a huge hit, a proposed standalone movie featuring the character was later axed.


Re: 6. Jinx Johnson (Halle Berry) - Die Another Day

Jinx was listed as a "faux action girl" on TV tropes for these reasons, namely that she isn't especially tough and her main fight scene is against a non lethally trained swords woman. It's amusing looking back how much Rosamund Pike buries Halle Berry in this movie. Even at the time I found myself far more interested in Miranda Frost as a character and was even kinda rooting for her to beat Jinx in the final fight, haha. Brosnan's movies suffer from these bigger name female costars in my view. The 2nd half of TND became a showcase for Michelle Yeoh more than Bond (though she carried herself far better than Halle Berry here).

That is one positive about the Craig era. It is flat out about Bond doing stuff, saving the day, using his skills. They actually eschew the action girl cliches that hurt a lot of newer action films.

Re: 6. Jinx Johnson (Halle Berry) - Die Another Day

Yes, Rosamund Pike was brilliant. By far the most interesting female character in this movie.

Re: 6. Jinx Johnson (Halle Berry) - Die Another Day

I agree that Halle's acting was not great by any means, but somehow i still liked her in the role.

I also think Rosamund was really great. Also loved her in the Titans movie.

Re: worst Bond girl EVER

Her acting was GREAT! Amazing how she pretended to add a ghetto flair to bond girl.
And also pretended to not know how to use weapons and stuff. And pretendecd to act bad to add realism. Osker worthy.

Re: worst Bond girl EVER

What a retard.
