The only thing wrong with License to Kill is.........

........that it's Dalton's last Bond film.

Bond.................ANGRY!

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.

Hey there, enjoyin your reviews, glad to see you're a Dalton fan.

I've recently altered my 'best of' list just slightly so as to include Licence To Kill in my top three Bond films, alongside Casino Royale and From Russia With Love.

Agreed on you're points, and I think Davi's Sanchez is certainly among some of the best villains in the series.

Dalton deserved another 007 movie in 1991, and even a fourth in '93 before Brosnan took up the role in 1995.

...Admittedly I thought the cab doing a wheelie through the fire was pretty silly BUT other than that I have no problems with this entry at all. Among the best!
