The Living Daylights Reviews
Finally a good Bond film after a ton of bad ones. Sure newcomer Timothy Dalton isn't a great Bond and it feels like a previous entry, but the action is exciting and entertaining.
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: They may just have gone a bit too far this way, as with the thrilling gritty edge, comes a lack of light-heartedness that can make it feel a little stagnant at times
VERDICT: This is not just one of the most sophisticated Bonds, it's also one of the best cold-war films of the era. 'The Living Daylights' is a breath of fresh air for the franchise, if a slightly too serious one.
