Licence To Kill Reviews

September 6, 2020
The level of violence is unlike any other of the series, making the chief antagonist more formidable, memorable, and ultimately less fun.

Daniel Craig shows the grit, the determination and vulnerability that Bond has...Dalton did that years before!
April 13, 2020
I think it's very underrated.

It may not be up your alley if you're just into Bond films, but it you're in the mood for an old fashioned action film, you can do far, far worse than sticking this film on.

Lacks a bit of that Bond magic. Perhaps not the cruder, formulaic elements of other Bond films, but the lightness of touch and inherent charm in the character of Bond himself.
October 17, 2018
The movie is really well-structured, simple in plot but rather meaty in delivery.
November 2, 2015
Some of 007's earlier adventures fail to hold up, but in a post-'Taken' world, 'Licence to Kill' certainly aged well and is a under-appreciated gem in the Bond catalog.
May 20, 2014
Licence to Kill gets better as it unfolds for more than two hours. It just takes an insufferably long while to find the right pace.
May 20, 2014
Licence to Kill ranks as one of the best of the 16 Bond films, thanks to Dalton's athletic, tough and deadly new 007.
May 20, 2014
As unlikely as it seems, Mr. Dalton actually appears to be growing in the Bond role, which is potentially stifling because its own popularity has so rigidly defined it.
May 20, 2014
This series' record of maintaining an admirable level of quality stays intact, even if this film might best be used as a cinematic appetizer to see before renting a tape of one of the Connery or Moore classics.
May 20, 2014
Every once in a while, [the Bond series] pulls in its stomach, pops the gun from its cummerbund, arches its eyebrow and gets off another bull's-eye. The newest, Licence to Kill, is probably one of the five or six best of Bond.
May 20, 2014
He may look the part, but Timothy Dalton fails the boots, the scuba gear, or the automobiles left him by Moore and Connery.
May 20, 2014
If the series is ever going to return to its Connery-era glory, it definitely needs some new writers, ones who know how to streamline a story and keep the dialogue tight.
May 20, 2014
Dalton revives the cool, ironic detachment of the Connery years, but he also allows a touch of obsession to show through Bond`s surface aplomb.
May 20, 2014
With Dalton straightening out Bond for the second time, Licence to Kill continues the salvage operation begun in The Living Daylights and rescues a series that was in danger of shooting itself in the foot. With a Walther PPK, of course.
May 20, 2014
It's a watchable adventure boosted by impressive action sequences and a fiery climax with a bone-crunching punch-up. Pity Dalton didn't have another crack at proving his secret-agent credentials.
May 5, 2014
Darker version of James Bond has more violence, language.
November 2, 2012
Anchored by an engaging revenge plot, this Bond film has a great villain, a dark tone and several top-notch action set pieces.
October 14, 2012
No quips. No smirks. No innuendoes. Just raw, exposed nerves. The traits for which Dalton gets dinged are those looking past the character's admittedly alluring surface pleasures. Women aren't the only things that keep 007 awake at night, you know.
