90  The one and only James Bond.  Everyone that followed were mimes.

Didn't know he was 90. Still see him as James Bond.

10/10.   Ha ha.   Connery was Bond before I could watch those movies.  So I have seen some since and I liked them.   Now they are just shoot em up fests. 

His last movie is League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.  Great movie.  I love it.  I recommend it to everyone on TOM.

Was League his only comic book movie?

It's funny how he didn't get much respect for playing Bond at the time, but even his worst critics would look at his entire career and rank him among the best.

Somehow, he always got away with that Scottish accent no matter the roll.  Even in Red October, a Russian sub captain with a Scottish accent. It's funny that the only ones who cared were the critics.  Heck he was even criticized for his Scottish accent as an Irish cop  in The Untouchables for which he won his Oscar.  To the public the presence he brought to every role diminished acting it with that Scottish accent.  There's no question, that the accent contributed to his distinction on the screen..

I liked him in the Alcatraz movie with Nicholas Cage.

In the 1960s was the coolest man alive. Not even Steve McQueen or James Dean came close. He probably produced more spontaneous orgasms in women than any man in history.

My favorite Bond scene of all time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tw4qLi4I6no
