Dalton does a descent job as Bond and it's a mostly solid first outing for him. There's some good action to make up for the last film, but not enough of everything else.

If you prefer your Bond action-packed and less cheery, Timothy Dalton is your man. While I appreciate the effort, I can't quite get into the spirit of this one - the lackluster villains don't help any. Decent but by no means one of my favorites.

Timothy Dalton is an underrated Bond. He's not as smooth as Connery, but he's a better action actor. The movie, contrary to popular belief, is better than it's given credit for.

Timothy Dalton stars in his first and best turn as James Bond. John Rhys-Davies is also excellent in this one. It introduced me to the Mujhadin of Afghanistan and the idea that not all Soviets were evil in Bond films.

See ya Moore

See ya Moore and hello new Bond.

The story is about Bond himself assigned to aid in the defection of KGB agent Jeroen Krabbe. 007 must prevent an unknown sniper from killing Krabbe before he can reach the West. The mysterious assailant turns out to be the luscious Maryam d'Abo, who, as it turns out, is not all that she seems. The plot wends its way through a scheme to trade several million dollars' worth of diamonds for weapons, which will be shipped off to mercenaries worldwide.

So after that terrible mess known as A view to a kill which I didn't like at all, actually I thought that movie sucked, if you want to know what I truly thought of that film then check out my review of it. So Roger Moore is out and now we got a new Bond and a better one if I must say.

Timothy Dalton in ...

"The Living Daylights" by Yojimbo

When several members of the "Double O" division are found assassinated, a KGB defector implicates a senior figure in the KGB.

Timothy Dalton takes over the role as James Bond and the result is an immediate upturn in quality. Although the script was originally written for Roger Moore whose tenure rapidly declined from the camp to outright farce, the misogyny, casual racism and general vulgarity have been suitably toned down making for a rather more mature outing for 007. Dalton's Thespian roots mean he has a much greater range than his predecessor and although he lacks the charisma of Connery, he adds dramatic weight in his more rebellious yet sensitive portrayal; his relationship with co-star Maryam d'Abo is also far more reminiscent of From Russia With Love than Moore's crude womanisi...
