A film character that instantly comes to mind when thinking about the different types of heroism is Ian Flemming’s fictional MI6 agent, James Bond. Bond, who is played by a plethora of actors, has gone down in history for his enchanting adventures in both romance and his line of work. James Bond is a notorious British agent who works under the branch of MI6 as a field agent/assassin. Bond had always been a hero until relatively recent films in which depict a more gritty and guttural male figure. From what we have seen from the times of Sean Connery, Bond had never failed to save the World from ghastly organizations and masterminds.

Bond had always come forward to save people’s lives. Yes, the Bond character has had his dark side depicted in films but I thought that he had always been in check and that he knew who the good guys were, that is all we needed to know about Bond until now.

When Sean came out to play James Bond, he played the part of an epic hero. Whilst I do agree that the more recent incarnations of Bond have turned his heroic nature to a more tarnished and greyer scaled characterization of our character, I would agree with the anti-hero depiction towards Bond as a character on this count.

James Bond would most definitely be characterized as an anti-hero nowadays because he is not in league with other authorities and crosses boundaries to get his man; and while this certainly makes him a hero for trying to ascertain vicious criminals, he is also always on the run from the law. And lets not forget that he also kills people for a living. He is an anti-hero, just not in the sense that one would picture a traditional anti-hero like Batman, The Punisher, or numerous other vigilante type beings. While he does fight on the side of “good”, also his hamartia is also a major factor with him being a jaded agent. Bond is a dark, charming character that has all the qualities that describe an anti-hero.
