I've watched most of the Bond series and I would say no.
Between the sex scenes and the violence I couldn't see much that would be appropriate for an 8 yr old.
I think there are some kid friendly movies that have a spy theme to them stuff like spy kids, agent cody banks, harriet the spy, the spy next door and I think the get smart remake might be suitable substitutes.
Great, thanks so much. I just don't have the headspace to evaluate it properly right now but it seems there is not a lot to recommend an 8 year old see the movies. It really has been years for me and I thought I'd make the time to screen one if there was a lot of difference of opinion.
The above options are very helpful - he's obsessed with all things spy, so thanks a heap
