James Bond Qualities

Powerful Essays
Topics: James Bond
1. The three qualities that I felt James Bond most possessed throughout the story

were determination, bravery, and intelligence. In the next several paragraphs I will explain

how incidents in the story revealed each quality portrayed by James Bond.

Determination

In the beginning of the story a drug lord named, Frans Sanchez, severely injures

James Bond's partner, Felix Leiter, and kills his wife Della Leiter after escaping an

attempted arrest by Felix. After this incident Bond becomes determined to capture

Sanchez, bring his drug empire down, and avenge what he had done to his partner and

close friend Felix Leiter. Bond shows such strong determination that he disobeys his chief,

"M", and the secret service

Determined to bring Sanchez down and avenge all the pain which his

friend inflected he eventually gave in his resignation and became a free agent.

Intelligence

James Bond shows intelligence throughout the entire story. From his surprising

attack tactics, to how he tricks villains and enemies into doing exactly what he wants.

Bond was the type of man that was usually in control of the situation. There comes a point

in the story where Bond must figure a way out to turn two major druglords against each

other, William Krest and Frans Sanchez, in order for him to gain the trust of Sanchez so

he can learn more about his drug organization and what he was about. He devises a plan

that convinces Sanchez that Krest was stealing millions of dollars from him and that he

was going to meet with the Chinese to plan an assassination in his name. Eventually Bond

thinks of a way to set Krest up so that Sanchez believes him. The plan was so well though

out that it surprised me how intelligent Bond actually was. He was in complete control of

everything that happened and he eventually gained the trust of Sanchez and was

Not knowing exactly what was inside, Bond

sneaks into the warehouse through tunnels located under the aquarium. Once inside he

encounters several enemies which cause problems for him. However, Bond makes the

reader feel that he is fearless as he goes in and takes out each enemy one by one in such a

professional matter, that of which you would expect from a secret agent. Bond survives

this part of the story and eventually escapes to follow Sanchez towards his secret estate.

2. Beowulf and James Bond each encounter enemies and get involved in battles

which are actually quite similar to each other. In Beowulf, the hero encounters a fire

breathing dragon that has attacked his city and eventually will kill him when they battle

one another. There is also a point in the story where Bond faces a challenge, like that of

Beowulf, where he is put to the test and comes close to his death.

Bond was attempting to assassinate Sanchez by means of using a sniper rifle and

shooting at him from a near by building. While in position and ready to fire,

    In some states, legislators have debated whether teenagers should be required to maintain a “C” grade average in school before receiving a driver’s license. Some people think this would be a good policy because having a passing grade shows that students are responsible enough to be good drivers. Other people believe that the policy wouldn’t be appropriate because they see no relationship between grades in school and driving skills. I believe that students should maintain a “C” grade average. I believe…

    "To kill or not to kill" It is evident that abortion is an issue that will not subside. There are two completely opposite sides of this issue in which no compromise appears to be apparent. The controversy lies on whether or not we believe human life begins at conception. By definition, life does begin at conception. The definition of alive means that the being is growing, developing, maturing, and replacing its own dying cells. These are all characteristics which are held by a fetus. If life does…

    The movie based on John Grisham's A Time to Kill is a Hollywoodized, modern-day version of To Kill a Mockingbird. Both movies employ many of the same themes and plot elements; but the former movie is one-dimensional and predictable while the latter is innovative and purposeful. The movie version of Harper Lee's novel To Kill a Mockingbird is considered a classic film, whereas John Grisham's adapted novel is merely another example of the money making efforts of Hollywood. Some of the movies' more…
