Plot Summary

Armed with razor-sharp instincts, a gadget-laden Auston Martin, and a license to kill, James Bond (Timothy Dalton) battles diabolical arms merchants bent on world domination in a weapons conspiracy that may be linked to the Soviet military high command. Initially assigned to help a KGB agent (Jerome Krabbe) defect, Bond must prevent an unknown sniper from killing him before he can escape to the West. The mysterious shooter is the seductive and beautiful Kara Milovy (Maryam d'Abo), who is not at all what she appears to be. Bond foils a plot to trade millions of dollars of diamonds for weapons, ending in a shootout high above the clouds in a plane loaded with opium.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: 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. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Oct 13, 2008

Fresh: 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. – Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Timothy Dalton, the fourth Bond, registers beautifully on all key counts of charm, machismo, sensitivity and technique. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: 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. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2010

One of the Best James Bond Movies

Timothy Dalton has always been underrated as James Bond. But he brought a seriousness to his role that was true to Ian Fleming's books. He is a great actor and this is his first Bond film and he takes it over with such confidence and charm that you regret that he could not make more than two James Bond pictures. In any case this film has all the action and adventure we come to expect from the franchise. I am thrilled to find it available in stunning HD. This is a classic James Bond movie for the ages!

Ian Fleming's James Bond

Timothy Dalton captured the James Bond Ian Fleming created in his novels. The Living Daylights brings us a more serious Bond who still enjoys life and has a sense of humor. From the exciting opening sequence to the awesome fight OUTSIDE of a jet to the showdown with the main villain, this movie shows us a Bond who survives by his skills, prowess, and (ok) a few gadgets from Q branch.

DEFINITELY RECOMMENDED and not as dark as Dalton's other Bond outing (Licence to Kill).
