James Bond, or agent 007, is no doubt one of the most widely known fictional spy characters. Bond’s first appearance was in 1953 in a series of novels by Ian Fleming, and it soared since then, becoming one of the largest and most popular franchises which included several series, films, books and video games.
Although Bond has been played by many actors including Sean Connery, Pierce Brosnan and Timothy Dalton, the most famous Bond is played by Daniel Craig, who, despite his statement regarding quitting the franchise, has been announced to put on his Bond tuxedo once again for the upcoming Bond 25.
So if you can’t wait for the next installment of the spy series, have a look at some of these films that will give you definite Bond vibes.
10. Atomic Blonde (David Leitch, 2017)
If you’re tired of women only playing ‘Bond girls’ or femme fatales in spy films, “Atomic Blonde” is a great film to add some variation to the genre. Starring Charlize Theron as the ruthless MI6 spy Lorraine Broughton, the plot follows her through a dangerous mission to the centre of Berlin. There, with the collapse of the wall taking place, she has to use all of her skills and powers to take down a deadly espionage group.
The film has been called a mixture of James Bond, “Mission: Impossible” and “John Wick,” with Theron living up to every one of her male spy competitors. Although “Atomic Blonde” received mixed reviews with particular criticism toward the plot, the movie is no doubt entertaining and filled to the brim with action as well as beautifully choreographed fight scenes, showing that girls can do it too.
