He’s sophisticated, charming, resourceful, good with his hands, good with the ladies, patriotic, fashionable, well-travelled, well-armed, groomed, witty, deadly handsome, deadly, he’s got good taste in drinks, he’s got good taste in gadgets, he’s got good taste in cars. There are elements in James Bond that appeal to any man… and woman for that matter. That’s quite probably the secret to his longevity – no matter the decade, no matter the actor playing Bond, no matter the villain threatening him, or the sophistication of weaponry at his disposal, 007 is a concept that speaks to the very basic premise of what it is to be a man.

Genius.
