Looper surveyed 596 people to identify which of Daniel Craig’s Bond moments went too far. And while there were a handful of contenders for that distinction, one of them outpaced the field by a fairly substantial margin. Having garnered a whopping 35.74% of the vote, the infamous torture scene from the actor’s 007 debuts — 2006’s “Casino Royale” — was the one that respondents pointed to as his ultimate too-far moment. In the film, villain Le Chiffre (Mads Mikkelsen) captures Bond, strips him bare, and ties him to a seatless chair. He then proceeds to strike Bond’s lower extremities repeatedly with the knotted end of a heavy rope — a practice known as Dutch Scratching.
The runner-up choice — as selected by 23.83% of respondents — was how Bond opted to deal with Dominic Greene (Mathieu Amalric), who was the primary antagonist in “Quantum of Solace.” Rather than making good on his license to kill, Bond ultimately leaves Greene stranded in the Atacama Desert with nothing but an oil can to keep himself alive. M (Judi Dench) later informs Bond that Greene was found with two bullets in his head and motor oil in his stomach.
“Skyfall’s” train chase (12.42%) and Shanghai fight (11.41%) and “Casino Royale’s” parkour chase (9.06%) were next in line, capturing similar portions of the vote. Finally, the train fight scene from “Spectre” brought up the rear as the pick of just 7.55% of respondents.
