Which James Bond Film Had the Most Inept Henchmen?
There has been some Bond Marathon's going on and are on and I'm on the verge of overdosing as I can't seem to get enough of 007.

I'm voting for the Spy who loved me followed closely by Moonraker. Roger Moore's more campy interpretation of 007 was only made worse by the inept henchmen that he often faced. Were talking Dr. Evil type henchmen.

Who do you have?

Roger was old and fat when Moonraker and Octopussy came out. So it was necessary to have very inept henchmen to make it even somewhat believable. Stunt work is obviously not him.

He didn't portray Bond, he portrayed the Saint cosplaying as James Bond.

The Man With the Golden Gun only had Nick Nack and some nameless guards, I think.

I'd say the ones that were fooled by Sean Connery's japanese costume.

Yep. Had 007 dead to rights, and left him to be finished off by a bunch of gators and crocodiles without even watching him.

Live and Let Die is such a weird movie. It’s like they wrote Bond into a low-budget Blacksploitation movie.

Dude used an evil jazz band second line to assassinate multiple spies on the same street corner on multiple occasions.

Cubby Broccoli was trying to find a replacement for Sean Connery because he wanted more money. George Lazenby failed "On Her Majesties Secret Service" which is why Sean Connery returned to "Diamonds Are Forever" for more money. I imagine they went cheap on the budget with Roger Moore but Live and Let Die made good money and they knew they could mover forward.

Henchwoman

Xenia. Costly error leaving the gun on her side while attached to the helicopter.

You forgot the last one...A View to a Kill. Starting with that one it seems like the last film done by every Bond is the worst. Dalton, Bronson, and I pray Craig's last isn't even in the same area code as QOS was.

Live and Let Die story and villains sucked even though it was filmed in Louisiana.

But I must say that Paul McCartney’s theme song is right up there with the song’s from Goldfinger and Skyfall.

Not technically a henchman, but this guy is the worst character in the entire series.
