Dalton's second Bond effort, in which drug lords try to kill 007's best friend and former CIA agent. Disobeying orders for the first time and operating without his infamous "license to kill," Bond goes after the fiends. Fine outing for Dalton (and Bond, too).

WARNING: REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS – WE RECOMMEND TO WATCH MOVIE FIRST! VERDICT: #10 in my personal rating. Yes, this is an excellent adventure movie because it’s realistic and full of hot action. However, creating “darker” Bond they went too dark and made “Anti-Bond”. First, he’s the rogue agent obsessed with revenge which in my opinion is simply unprofessional. Second, the viewer does not want to be like 007 because he’s having too much of a hard time. Bond movies were always about cool and easy - that’s what makes them different. COLL STUFF: - Dropping to the wedding on a parachute - The scale of a drug-dealer is now in a Bond’s league, unlike LALD - All girls are hot - Aerial stunts: they’ve really become director J. Glenn’s specialty - Underwater stunts: as great as aerial - Gadgets: a rifle with a palm-code, laser photo-camera - The villain’s villa: unbelievably beautiful (the real building filmed) - Traitor: always makes it more dramatic - Millions of cash thrown around: in the air and in the water - Big tribute to LALD: Leiter actor, drugs, sharks, bad guy pops up, etc. - Grand finale with trucks chase: spectacular - Exotic views: Key West, Mexican coastline, Hemingway house NOT COOL: - 2nd movie with new Moneypenny: she’s still out of place - Bond does not drive a hot car (ah, yes, his license is revoked!) - No real henchman: Mr. del Toro played Dario well but doesn’t cut it - Bond’s girl smokes, he - doesn’t
