Audience Reviews for License to Kill

As far as made-for-TV films go License to Kill is better than the standard fare. The acting can be a bit overdone but never over-burdening. A chance to see a young Denzel Washington as the over-worked lawyer is a real treat and License to Kill brings up valid points on drunk driving while not being preachy.

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.

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.
