Critics reviews

Robert Davi, bless him, still seems like too much of a conscienceless henchman type to handle the role of the full villain. But the movie offers the gratifying spectacle of a really ticked-off Bond, and while the ending is weird—the usually disapproving old equipment guru Q suddenly goes all avuncular, and the avenged Leiter is a little too cheerful for someone with no legs and a dead wife as of a week before—this is largely satisfying latter-day Bond.
