A brief history of Bond
The James Bond film series is undoubtedly the most successful film series in cinematic history, with films released, on average, every two years since 1962. The films have also been globally successful, particularly in the United States, Japan and Europe, and have reached an estimated audience of three billion people - half of the world's population. Although it is probably true that other highly successful film groupings, such as the Star Wars trilogy, have had an equally wide reach, there have been less of them and they have originally been released over a far shorter period of time.
There are now twenty two Bond films, with the release of Quantum of Solace. James Bond is often referred to as a spy, yet this is not strictly accurate. James Bond is indeed a member of the British overseas branch of the intelligence services, MI6 , and holds the prefix 00, meaning that he has killed in cold blood twice in the line of duty. Bond, however, is not necessarily a spy. The vast majority of his missions are not based on the traditional intelligence gathering duties that spies, which the very nature of their title suggests, are employed in. As Kingsley Amis remarks, the novel title The Medium-Grade Civil Servant That Loved Me would have been more acceptable and accurate . More specifically, James Bond is a counter-spy, and in most cases is sent to prevent a plot coming to fruition, rather than gaining evidence to pre-empt that plot initially.
