The Living Daylights Reviews

Austin Kennedy
Film Geek Central

"Finally, a James Bond movie that Ian Fleming can be proud of. Dalton is a lean, mean and bold Bond. Full of great action and featuring a romantic sub-plot that elevates this above most other 007 adventures."

Dalton is a dapper, dashing and dangerous Bond. And although "Casino Royale's" sophisticated blend of thrills and personal turmoil slightly eludes "Daylights," it's a sign that the producers then had the right instincts if not the full initiative.

Dalton gets a chance to demonstrate a fascinating, if slightly too actorly take on [James Bond].

It was somehow more entertaining than how it sounds.

...ultimately comes off as one of the most ineffective and flat-out dull entries within the ongoing series.

After the fizzle of the later Roger Moore Bonds, The Living Daylights brings in a new 007 in Timothy Dalton, who manages the Connery trick of seeming suave and tough at the same time.

With its weak plotting and distinterested performances, this is a misfire on nearly every level.

Dalton is an engaging Bond, d'Abo is coolly alluring, and Krabbe is the epitome of the double-dealing spy master.

Timothy Dalton, the fourth Bond, registers beautifully on all key counts of charm, machismo, sensitivity and technique.

This Bond is as fast on his feet as with his wits; an ironic scowl creases his face; he's battle ready yet war-weary.

A very weak entry

The casting of Timothy Dalton as James Bond in this 15th entry into the adventures of 007 is widely considered a classic mistake: Dalton isn't suave like Sean Connery or even Roger Moore.

Confused plot and digressive globe trotting notwithstanding, the best Bond in years.

I'm one of the few people who really liked Timothy Dalton as James Bond.

Typical Bond action but it's one of the spy's worst.

Mr. Dalton, the latest successor to the role of James Bond, is well equipped for his new responsibilities. He has enough presence, the right debonair looks and the kind of energy that the Bond series has lately been lacking.

Hasn't aged well -- but it was once a refreshing change of pace.

Dalton is a solid, serious, but a bit colorless as Bond. Still, the action is good.

Sadly underrated Bond entry with an absolutely classic theme tune by A-ha.
