Facing a manslaughter charge, the well-heeled Murray hires an expensive defense team....while the father of the dead girl (James Farentino), with hardly a penny to his name, is

Audience Reviews for License to Kill

Altho marketed to capitalize on Denzel Washington's fame he, in fact, plays only a minor role in this TV movie dramatization about the evils of drunk driving. James Farantino and Don Murray are at odds as the leads here, one the father of a girl killed in a auto accident and the other as the drunk driver. Balanced yes though slow.

what a nearly unwatcheable movie. i understand that this was a made for TV movie from the mid 80's but its really terrible. Denzel gets the lead bill on the box because of who he is today, but he's not in more than 20 minutes of this movie. its basically an after school special about why people shouldnt drink and drive. its long and slow. the only good thing was that it made me think about the horrors of losing a kid, and the script was done realistically in that regard.

A good 007 movie focusing mostly on Bond's revenge for his CIA companion. The good thing in this movie was about the horrors of losing a kid, and the script was done realistically in that regard.
