|Borrowed bits from Fleming in a story about a drug king-pin who maims Felix Leiter, Bond's pal in the CIA. Bond quits MI6 and goes rogue for revenge. Feels like Fleming, but doesn't feel like Bond. Bond-girls are a bit token-tough. Villain has best lines. A very young Benecio DelToro shows up as villain's creepy, weasley assistant. Sub-plot of a televangelist as a drug marketer is mean-spirited/funny, but ruined by the casting of Wayne Newton. A guy gets exploded in a pressure chamber but Newton is ickier. Extended action sequence with 18-wheelers goes on far too long. Bond ends up with girl in a swimming pool.|
|License to Kill is the worst bond movie ever. Dalton stinks, the villiain is terrible, and there is no reasonable action scenes.|
|License to Kill is a great movie. It may not seem like a Bond film but it feels like a spy movie. Also, Sanchez is a realistic villain unlike someone like Mr.Big or Maxwell Zorin. Dalton is an amazing Bond and Q has a fairly prominant role in the film which is good because whoever plays Q is a really good actor. My only gripe is the bond girl she was boring and I wasnt convinced Dalton wanted to use the ole Bond charm on her.|
|1989, my year, my movie, my Bond! Timothy Dalton returns in his second round as Agent 007. Coming off hot of 1987's TLD, Dalton again proves to be great choice to the role of 007. Though this doesn't feel like a Bond film, since his goes rouge 90% of the film. Benecio DelToro does great as henchman, Dario. Q has a much larger role than any other previous Bond film he was in. M is still in charge, played by Robert Brown. The girls are perfectly casted. The villain proves to be a worthly challenge.This film is one of my top 5 fav Bond films. Dalton is a true BadAss Bond out for REVENGE!|
|This Movie has everything you want to expect in a Bond Movie, Action, Humor and a Great Villain. There is so much action in this film I can't even list all of the fights, When Q shows up and shows the gadgets it's time for a little humor and Sanchez is a great villain unlike Blofeld, Stromberg or any other villain who just sits behind a desk and pushes buttons. Anyway Licence to Kill was a great Bond film and it's a shame that this was Dalton's last Bond Film.|
|By Bondgirls4ever007||I love this film!! it has everything expected in a bond film. girls, guns gadgets and exictment. The classical car chase, a good villian and vodka martini's apleanty. Its a shame this was daltons last apearence as i quite liked his presance in film. He had the same kind of cruelty shown in him that we havnt seen in a while, flemings perspective in fact. although moore is AMAZING, he cant really be cold and ruthless. brosnan is rubbish at it, and i cant really give lazenby a review on ruthlessness. connery, dalton and craig are the only ones who can really nail it. there kis a good bond girl, and the fact bond leaves the service to be a rouge agent doesnt excuse a good Q scene. all in all 5 stars. if u havnt seen it i HIGHLY recomend it!|

........that it's Dalton's last Bond film.
Nearly everything about this movie is spot on. The gritty overtone that is predominant throughout this adventure feels very scarcely reminiscent of any of it's preceding founders. This is a good thing.
License to Kill successfully scraps the generic "Bond formula" that has been overused and thoughtlessly rehashed for over a decade prior.
Dalton takes his gruff interpretation of Bond up a notch in his second (and last) outing. He gives, AND TAKES, punches through over a dozen well orchestrated action sequences and comes out on top. A very entertaining climactic scene involving 18-wheelers gives amazing closure to a terrifically cast Dalton.
The villains, albeit Spanish stereotypes, are also incredibly cast as the plot unfolds into a much more realistic action caper than most in the series.
