The Bride vs. Bond

It’s the king of the lady-killers versus the ultimate lady killer in a battle that’s sure to contain more sexual innuendo than punches. 007 has yet to meet a single woman he hasn’t been able to shag, and his habit of falling for the hardcore chicks hasn’t gone unnoticed, but will the Bride succumb to the MI-6 agent’s charm, or simply rip out his eye and use it for target practice?

Winner: James Bond
NEXT: 007 goes up against #4 John McClane

The Bride

Uma Thurman, "Kill Bill"
The definitive example of “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.” The deadliest member of the D.i.V.A.S. (Deadly Viper Assassination Squad), Beatrix’s plan to quit the biz was foiled when her leader/lover, Bill, ordered the massacre of her entire wedding party. Four years later, the Bride awakens from her coma, wills herself out of muscle atrophy, and systematically hunts and kills the remaining members of her group, along with hundreds, and we mean hundreds, of other assorted hired goons. When she finally faces off with Bill, she plays her ace: the five point palm-exploding heart technique. Bill then takes five steps, and is dead before he hits the ground.

Definitive badass moment: In a swordfight with the one-eyed Elle Driver, the Bride and Elle are face to face with their swords pushing against each other…so the Bride reaches up and plucks out Elle’s other eye, then squishes it with her boot.

Classic badass line: “Looked dead, didn't I? But I wasn't. But it wasn't from lack of trying, I can tell you that. Actually, Bill's last bullet put me in a coma -- a coma I was to lie in for four years. When I woke up, I went on what the movie advertisements refer to as a 'roaring rampage of revenge.' I roared. And I rampaged. And I got bloody satisfaction. I've killed a hell of a lot of people to get to this point, but I have only one more. The last one. The one I'm driving to right now. The only one left. And when I arrive at my destination, I am gonna kill Bill."

James Bond

Sean Connery, "Dr. No"
He’s Agent 007 of the British Secret Service, but you can call him Bond. James Bond. With an elaborate arsenal of spy gadgets at his fingertips, Bond is suave, sophisticated, and utterly unafraid to exercise his license to kill when the need arises. It doesn’t always come to that, of course, given his intelligence, his skill in a variety of forms of hand-to-hand combat, and his way with a witty riposte…but no matter who or what he may be doing, 007 is always prepared to draw his trusty 7.65 mm Walther PPK pistol in order to protect Queen and country.

Definitive badass moment: When Professor Dent goes to shoot 007, only to find his gun empty, Bond states, “That's a Smith & Wesson, and you've had your six,” and promptly shoots Dent. (“Dr. No”)

Classic badass line: “Now, Pussy, you know a lot more about planes than guns. That's a Smith and Wesson .45, and if you fire at me at this close range, the bullet will pass through me and the fuselage like a blowtorch through butter. The cabin will depressurize, and we'll both be sucked into outer space. If that's how you want to enter the United States, you're welcome.” (“Goldfinger”)
