Timothy Dalton takes over the franchise and the result is a marked upturn in quality. He is not the most charismatic of actors but he has a decidedly larger range than the inanimate Roger Moore and the script makes a nice Cold War political backdrop. Maryam D'Abo also makes a more intelligent and three dimensional Bond girl than most and there's some nice support from John Rhys-Davies as Bond's opposite number in the KGB. One of the better Bond films.

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.
