Expect the expected.
October 13, 2008
Dalton is an engaging Bond, d'Abo is coolly alluring, and Krabbe is the epitome of the double-dealing spy master.

October 13, 2008
Timothy Dalton, the fourth Bond, registers beautifully on all key counts of charm, machismo, sensitivity and technique.
October 13, 2008
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.
February 10, 2008
A very weak entry
| Original Score: 2.5/4
February 13, 2007
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.
| Original Score: 3/5
June 24, 2006
Confused plot and digressive globe trotting notwithstanding, the best Bond in years.
October 8, 2005
I'm one of the few people who really liked Timothy Dalton as James Bond.
| Original Score: 3/5
September 23, 2004
Typical Bond action but it's one of the spy's worst.
| Original Score: 3/5
May 20, 2003
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.
April 15, 2003
Hasn't aged well -- but it was once a refreshing change of pace.
| Original Score: 3/5
February 14, 2003
Dalton is a solid, serious, but a bit colorless as Bond. Still, the action is good.
| Original Score: 3/5
February 3, 2003
Sadly underrated Bond entry with an absolutely classic theme tune by A-ha.

September 11, 2001
A pure back-to-basics action-adventure spy drama which mostly delivers.

January 1, 2000
Has there ever been a weaker Bond villain than Whitaker? A more fatuous performance than Joroen Krabbe's Koskov? A less endearing Bond girl than Maryam D'Abo's Kara?

January 1, 2000
The raw materials of the James Bond films are so familiar by now that the series can be revived only through an injection of humor. That is, unfortunately, the one area in which the new Bond, Timothy Dalton, seems to be deficient.

January 1, 2000
Dalton, with his athletic sort of Brit-yuppie work ethic and romantic streak, comes out all right.
January 1, 2000
A snazzy spy thriller.
January 1, 2000
An entertaining enough addition to the long-running series.

January 1, 2000
The story is too choppy and just meanders from one locale to another without bringing the parts together into a compelling whole.
