The name's Bond.

From Russia with Love is in my opinion, one of the best Bond films made. There is some violence and implied sex, but it is mild in comparison to many modern films and even TV shows that children watch. I first saw this when I was about 6, my brothers 8 and 3 and personally a lot of Bond innuendo missed me then, as an adult we see things vastly differently. I would rate as 7 years plus simply as there is death and personally I think any younger is taking away a child's innocence, that said I thought they were pretending when I say it - the acting isn't the best.

Classic James Bond

This movie is what Bond films are all about. If you only see one, or are picking one for your first experience, this is a good choice. As usual there is violence and sex, I mean come on, what would James Bond be without those? But there isn't any nudity or blood and guts, so most teens should be ok to see this one.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
