Bond vs. Bourne

Last night, my 13-year-old daughter came in while I was watching The Bourne Identity and asked who would win in a fight between Jason Bourne and James Bond. She totally thought that Bourne would be able to kick Bond’s butt without breaking a sweat, and my wife tends to agree.
Here are my thoughts:

Sean Connery Bond:
Bourne is a dead man, hands down. Connery had the coolness factor going for him. He could kill Bourne in a hand to hand, in a tux, without spilling his martini. Don’t forget the girl, he’d have time to kiss the girl with the suggestive name at least 3 times during the fight. And we’re not talking about quick pecks. I’m talking about lips, tongues… the whole enchilada (as it were).

Roger Moore Bond:
This embodiment of Bond would have a harder time with Bourne. He would definitely spill the martini, but would use the broken stem to dispatch Bourne with a stab through the throat. He would then have to change his tux for a white dinner jacket. And there would be two girls with suggestive names on his arms… but only after the fight.

Timothy Dalton Bond:
Bourne kills Bond with a single punch through the chest, pulling out his still beating heart, and then spitting in the hole. He might even kill the girl as well. I hate to say that, since Dalton is Welsh… but facts are what they are.

Pierce Brosnan Bond:
This one is much more complicated, because Remington Steele could kill Bourne in a flat out hand to hand without messing his hair. But, Brosnan as Bond would die. It would be a good fight, don’t get me wrong about that, but in the end, Bond would be dead and Bourne would walk away with a severe limp… and the girl.

I don’t know enough about the other two to even make a decision…

So, there’s my answer to a very simple question. I’m afraid that my wife and daughter don’t agree with me. Such is life.

Bourne would kill George Lazenby (On Her Majesty's Secret Service a.k.a. WORST BOND EVER) just by walking into the same room as him. There isn't ever a real fight here.

Daniel Craig (new bond) would take a thrashing from Bourne, but in the end would come back to deliver a visceral beat down upon Bourne. All the while looking very grim.
