A new Bond. Dalton was actually pretty good. His Bond was a prototype for Daniel Craig. The Aston Martin was back. John Barry has a cameo, but it's also a goodbye. An enjoyable Bond film coming off the low from the two previous Bond films.
Taking over the mantle from Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton's Bond is a much more interesting, more intriguing character than the former. The film itself is also leaps and bounds ahead of everything in creepy grandpa era of Moore's time as the character. That being said this still isn’t that great a movie, but it’s certainly more enjoyable than what I’ve seen in the last few months. Darker, more engaging, better action.
This entry brought "THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS" back into the series, refreshing jolt of excitement after the awful staleness of the Moore era, Diamonds Are Forever and Never Say Never Again. The Living Daylights is one of the best Bond films since Goldfinger, From Russia With Love and Thunderball, Daylights feel like a Bond film, arguably more so than the entries from the 70's and rest of the 80's.
