THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS (Theatrical Release USA 1987)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

The Living Daylights
introduces Timothy Dalton as the new James Bond. Despite Dalton’s lack of Sean Connery suavity and his interpretation of Bond as an adventurer/special agent of 'another kind’, Dalton has a certain sophistication that makes the movie work. Kudos for that effort.
