The Living Daylights

BBBB.5

(out of 5)


A better Bond adventure hadn’t been seen in years when this exciting film was released in 1987, with a brand new actor in the lead and fresh plot elements.  presents a more intellectual, brooding agent 007 in his first outing, this time investigating the actions of various weapons and drug dealers linked to the KGB. His adventure takes him all the way around the world as usual, though this time instead of sleeping with every possible female he manages to somehow only commit to one:  is delightful as the cellist who captures Bond’s rare monogamy (devised by producers as a way to not offend audiences in the wake of the AIDS crisis).  The action scenes are exciting and the wonderful twists just never stop coming, plus the colourful supporting cast adds much to the experience.
