You stole my words !

Just kidding !

As a spy or as a assassin, Bond is hopeless. He cannot even control what is between his legs
As for Bourne, you wont know where he is until its too late. Those who have read the book will know that Bourne add all the stuff in the movies when he had amnesia. AMNESIA!!!
He didnt know who or what he was and he still kicked their asses.
Bond is nothing without his support team, gadgets and women.
Jason Bourne(Delta, Cain) doesnt need them.

It has to be "Bond, James Bond". How can we ever forget the 3G's (Guns, Girls, Gadgets) in his movies?

The first 4 or so James Bond movies with Sean Connery were well done. There was much subtlety in the plots e.g. Goldfinger was not trying to steal the gold at Fort Knox, he was trying to irradiate it and thereby hype the value of gold he already possessed. But later Bond films lost track of the essence of 007 and made the hero into a sham of a cartoon figure.

Bond ...errr! no no no. James Bond!

He's got the ladies drooling all over him while Bourne can't even remember who the hell he is. Bond's got charm/style and most importantly "The carzzzz!!". what does Bourne drive? Everyone who's voted for bourne is a traitor towards team bhp and should be banned .

But what I would really like to know is if it's

Daniel Craig/Pierce Brossnan or Matt Damon that we're debating about

Have a nice weekend ya'll

Its not what you drive, but how you drive.

Bourne would probably be at home in Bond's car, but I dont think Bond can survive without gadgets in his car. So the moment he get's in Bourne's street car, he is toast.

Also with all his gadgets, Bond wrecked a beautiful car in his last film trying to avoid a body on the road. I dont think he passed his drivers test. So IMO, he should be

This is fun. Siding for two fictional charecters.

Bourne all the way!

Bond relies on his gadgets a lot. Bourne makes use of what is available at the moment! :-)

My vote goes for Jason Bourne.

Action is fast paced and realistic.
No Hi-tech gadgetery leading to unrealistic scenarios

Apart from the first few Bond movies which were based on Ian Fleming's novels, all the other had very poor plot.
