Ratings & Reviews

  1. Christopher M. Jones's rating of the film The Living Daylights

    I've never thought the Dalton Bonds got as much credit as they deserved for how charming and innovatively violent they were

  2. Cyril Schreiber's rating of the film The Living Daylights

  3. James Mackin's rating of the film The Living Daylights

    Timothy Dalton wasn't that good here.

  4. Ethan's rating of the film The Living Daylights

    Like I said, Timothy Dalton was a very underrated Bond.

  5. Steve G.'s rating of the film The Living Daylights

    A remarkable turnaround by John Glen after the terrible A View To A Kill, both in terms of quality and tone. Gone is the pantomimic nonsense of the previous film in favour of an actual attempt at a fairly serious Bond film which ideally matches of the talents of Timothy Dalton. Jeroen Krabbe and Joe Don Baker are awful villains, but this is largely enjoyable and a fine 007 debut by Dalton.

  6. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film The Living Daylights

    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.

  7. msmichel's rating of the film The Living Daylights

    Timothy Dalton began his short tenure as Bond here with a fairly high octane film that recues the character from the cheap tongue in cheek one that Moore had finessed. Dalton lacks a certain charisma compared to Connery or Craig but was still able to deliver the goods. The problem with the picture was the script that seemed underwritten and too often convenient. D'abo was one of the better Bond girls.

  8. Matt's rating of the film The Living Daylights

    One of the best Bond films. A must!

  9. Omer Syed's rating of the film The Living Daylights

    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.

  10. Adam Z's rating of the film The Living Daylights

    Dalton is a great Bond. This is one of the best Bond movies.

  11. Ryan Estabrooks's rating of the film The Living Daylights

    Started off pretty great and then just went downhill after he freed the prisoner. Timothy Dalton still gets major props though, his Bond is one of the best.

  12. Wipeoutt31's rating of the film The Living Daylights

    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.

  13. Adam Slusar's rating of the film The Living Daylights

    The Living Daylights is textbook Bond, with plenty of thrilling action sequences but nary a memorable villain nor plot. Timothy Dalton plays Bond with a more serious edge, bringing the role back to Fleming but tossing out his charisma along with any semblance of Roger Moore.

  14. Publius's rating of the film The Living Daylights

    This is one of the best Bond movies. Dalton portrays Bond as the cold blooded killer he is supposed to be.

  15. John Smith's rating of the film The Living Daylights

    An OK Bond movie definitely not the best, but not thee worst either.

  16. Spencer Draper's rating of the film The Living Daylights

    The last great Bond film. Realistic and escapist. Dalton is top notch and gives us a Bond we haven't seen before. Sorely missed.

  17. Hunter Duesing's rating of the film The Living Daylights

    One of my favorite Bond movies, Dalton really nails Bond the way he needed to be during that time, it's just a shame his run was so short.

  18. Pierluigi Puccini's rating of the film The Living Daylights

    the hard-boiled 007 was back on this thrilling-suspenseful joy ride.
