first of all this film is no way pg 13.its should have been strong rated R its a wrong rating.its got voilence and great action,acting and music my god its timothy dalton,if james bond was real it would be timothy dalton and he proves it in this film.for 1989 this is amazing.imagine the people who saw this film in theater cinema when it was released.this one also needs a new 4k video transfer and audio transfer with dts and dolby atmos mix,with new technology,in my opinion this film needs to be re released in cinemas again world wide.its a classic.the best part was in the end fight climax dalton was doing a wheelie on Oil tanker LOL.

A more angst inspired Bond with wonderful stunts only shadowed by the overall execution, License to Kill was not a well made Bond film.

The Bond girls forever a staple of the series are suitably glamorous and inevitably …
