Link…James Bond. Have you seen all the 007 movies? Maybe a few? Maybe you want to watch them all, but you’re looking for the right strategy.

There are few story connections between earlier films like Dr. No and die another day. However, that all changed when the franchise was rebooted in 2006 with Daniel Craigit is Casino Royale.

Scroll down for a guide on how to watch the james bond films in chronological order:

Ian Flemming; Sean Connery

Dr. No (1962)

Ian Fleming’s secret agent character is ready for action in this film, which is the first in the Bond franchise. James (played by Sean Connery with bulletproof arrogance) travels to Jamaica to investigate the disappearance of another British agent, leading him to the evil Dr. No. This villain and his henchmen want to use a weapon against an American space launch.

From Russia with love (1963)

It is one of the most beloved Bond films of all time. 007 is involved in a plot to kill a beautiful Russian woman. It’s all tied to a terrorist plot involving a Soviet encryption device. The nefarious organization is known as SPECTRE, which is said to be featured in several Bond films.

The golden finger (1964)

The public might recognize The golden finger — it’s the movie with the famous scene of a woman painted from head to toe with gold paint. It’s also one of Connery’s most watchable adventures. The golden finger follows Bond as he pursues a gold-obsessed villain targeting Fort Knox.

thunder ball (1965)

This film involved a terrorist organization hijacking two nuclear bombs. He would later be remade in another James Bond film starring Connery.

you only live twice (1967)

007 travels to Japan to investigate the disappearance of a Soviet and American spacecraft, with the two Cold War adversaries pointing fingers at each other and tensions escalate. Now the famous super spy must make sure war doesn’t break out.

On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969)

George Lazenby stepped into 007’s shoes for this project – and in the opening scene, he breaks the fourth wall by cracking a redesign joke. Elsewhere in the film, Bond gets married.

Diamonds are forever (1971)

Connery returns to reprise his role as 007. It turns out the On Her Majesty’s Secret Service The star received bad advice from his manager: not to sign a multi-picture contract to return as Bond.

Lazenby was out and Connery was wooed with handsome pay. In this film, 007 poses as a diamond smuggler and learns a nefarious plan: to use diamonds to create a deadly laser weapon in space.

Live and Let Die (1973)

After Diamonds are forever the producers could not entice Connery to stay with the role. And with Lazenby having come and gone, they needed a third actor to pick up the slack. Enter Roger Moore! His era would be known as a little goofier, with a greater focus on gimmicks and humor.

The man with the golden gun (1974)

This adventure includes Moore and a solar-powered device. A very unique (and deadly) house of entertainment is involved, with Christopher Lee delivering a memorable performance as the villainous Scaramanga.

The Spy Who Loved Me (1977)

Moore returns as Bond to confront a megalomaniac who wants to wipe it all out and replace him with a new undersea civilization. Another of Bond’s most famous enemies, Jaws, appears in this film.

moonraker (1979)

The story revolves around a space shuttle known as Moonraker, which is hijacked on its way to the UK. The crew is killed and 007 is called in to investigate.

Just for your eyes (nineteen eighty one)

The super spy seeks to find a missing British ship. Not just any ship: this one has a weapon encryption device that would be used for deadly purposes in the wrong hands.

With Moore in the role, there’s a scene very early in the film where Bond visits the grave of his late wife, Tracy. It would be one of the few direct callbacks to previous 007 films until the 2006 reboot.

Octopus (1983)

Bond is on the case after a fellow agent is found dead with a counterfeit Fabergé egg. The egg ends up having a connection to a plot to blow up a United States Air Force base with a nuclear bomb. Maud Adamswho appeared in The man with the golden gunis also back playing a completely different character.

Never say never (1983)

Remember how Connery would play Bond in essentially the same story as Thunderclap? Due to a rights issue involving the original novel, a writer was able to make this film separately from the “official” Bond series. It was released in 1983, the same year as Octopus.

Connery returns as his most iconic character for the last time as the aging 007 in essentially the same story of thunder ball. It is not included in any box set as it is not produced by EON Productions.

A view to kill (1985)

It is Moore’s last film as 007. In the film, the famous spy battles Max Zorin (Christopher Walken) and May 1 (Grace Jones) as the villain works to wipe out California’s Silicon Valley.

Living daylights (1987)

Timothy Dalton dons the tuxedo for a darker, more intense version of 007. Bond investigates a KGB plot to assassinate all enemy spies linked to a shocking arms deal.

License to kill (1989)

After debuting in Living Daylights, Dalton makes his last appearance in the role just one film later. This is a more personal story for 007, who finds himself suspended from his duties as an agent.

Not one to sit still, he fiercely pursues a drug lord who ordered the murder of his friend’s wife. That friend, CIA agent Felix Leiter, clings to life after the attack.

golden eye (1995)

Bond disappeared from the big screen for six years after License to kill. He came back in the form of Pierce Brosnan, which gave the character a more suave and charming demeanor. The film sees 007 investigate the disappearance of a powerful satellite system alongside M, Moneypenny and other iconic characters.

Tomorrow Never Dies (1997)

Brosnan returns as 007, this time facing off against a media mogul trying to start World War III. Appearing as one of the “Bond girls” was Teri Hatchermost famous at the time for his role in ABC’s Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman.

The world is not enough (1999)

Brosnan’s third outing as Bond sees him trying to protect an oil heiress (Sophie Marceau) of the man who kidnapped her (Robert Carlyle), a terrorist unable to feel pain.

die another day (2002)

With Brosnan assuming the lead role for the final time, Bond is captured in the film’s North Korean opening scene, and the audience sees him being tortured for a time before being released.

Back in the United States, he discovers a startling truth about British millionaire Gustav Graves. Halle Berry stars like Jinx.

Casino Royale (2006)

This one serves as a bit of origin story: What made Bond the elusive spy that he is? It revolves around a fateful poker match, where the British government is literally betting for the chance to stop a terrorist cell.

Quantum of Comfort (2008)

With Craig returning as Bond, this film is a direct sequel to the previous film. Always bubbling and broken by Vesper (Eva Green) dead, Bond goes after an organization known as Quantum, which is bent on destroying a country’s most precious natural resource.

celestial fall (2012)

Craig’s third outing as Bond proved hugely popular, smashing box office records. In this story, 007 goes up against an embittered ex-agent named Raoul Silva (Javier Bardem), who plans to kill M (Judi Dench).

SPECTRUM (2015)

Bond hears a posthumous message from M that sends him after an assassin, but he is eventually led to a larger organization known as SPECTRE. The leader of this infamous group is none other than Ernst Stavro Blofeld (Christopher Waltz). Although the villain and organization have appeared in previous films, the filmmakers add a shocking twist here.

no time to die (2021)

This is Craig’s final outing as Bond, who retired at the start of the film. A tragic attack ends up severing his relationship with Madeline Swann (Léa Seydoux), whom he met in the previous film. He is thrown back into another adventure, this one involving chemical weapons and a mysterious terrorist (Rami Malek).

He must now work alongside the spy who replaced him as 007 (Lashana Lynch). And Swann has a secret that will change the agent’s fate forever.
