Not really. There are recurring villains, but it's a stretch to say the series has a continuing story (it certainly hasn't since the 60s in even that minor degree), and Bond's character doesn't develop, or arrive at an ending. There's no Bond film that has spent the whole movie showing how Bond needs to stop being a secret agent, ending with him quitting and living happily ever after with his love interest, only for the next movie to have him back on the job. The Bond movies are inherently open-ended. Nolan's Batman trilogy is just that, a trilogy. It has a beginning, a middle, and an end for Bruce Wayne.
You should check out the Daniel Craig Bond movies.
