Craig initially was criticized for his unconventional looks and his demeanor that did not speak of previous Bonds at all. But with his quite charm and power to emote through his eyes, he has made James Bond come back to life once again after Sean Connery. Craig remains the only Bond to be compared with the best Bond, Sean Connery.
However, he has surpassed Connery in money matters. As compared to him, Connery when first employed for the role got 10,000 pounds for the first Bond film 'Dr No'. When he made an unbreakable bond with the audience his payroll rose dramatically. With 157,000 pounds for 'From Russia With Love' to 12.5 per cent of the profits made from the film in America, Connery went from strength to strength with the character but Craig would till date remain the highest paying Bond. The next releases of Bond are scheduled for 2014 and 2016.
