A rather convincing theory would explain why James Bond would be so bad when it comes to espionage!
Fans are eagerly awaiting Die can wait, the last chapter of the franchise Jump worn by Daniel Craig having undergone many postponements. If we don’t know exactly what 007’s new adventures have in store for us, our favorite secret agent would once again have to be in dire straits in order to save the world. And this to such an extent that several rumors would have it that the MI6 spy died in Bond 25 : No Time To Die. If this would represent a unique element for the 007 saga, it could actually indicate that his hero is far from being the best spy he is! In this regard, several springs highlighted by a user Reddit would also explain why the agent with the license to kill would actually be so bad at espionage.
As M said in Casino Royale, 007 is a dangerous instrument as he manages to make his way through each of his missions without any subtlety. Whether Blofeld (Christopher Waltz), Le Chiffre (Mads Mikkelsen) or Raoul Silva (Javier Bardem), each of his enemies knows his true identity. Now, and while that doesn’t do MI6’s business, theory suggests that 007 would actually fulfill the role of a convicted agent. It would thus serve as a sacrifice, this tactic allowing the real spies to carry out their work of infiltration on the ground. If such a quality would eventually require Bond to die, the theory goes further and suggests that other MI6 comrades have allowed him behind the scenes to evade attacks from his opponents. Since they know his identity, the presence of 007 would also aim to worry them, to weaken them but especially to obsess them so that the enemies of MI6 focus only on him. Ultimately, James Bond would serve as a diversion from the real espionage work carried out by the British secret services. Enough to make him an essential asset for his country even though he could not win the match against Jason Bourne!
