John Glen United States, 1989

Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Licence to Kill

007 do a kind-of better "Miami Vice" movie than creator Michael Mann ever manage to give his show 20 years later. A surprisingly dark movie, but a good one at that. Great villains (Robert Davi, Everett McGill and Benicio del Toro) that leave their mark on any soul. Superior action too. A gruesome torture sequence is taken directly from the novels and I applaud them for daring to do it. Tiny bit overlong though
