James Bond turns renegade to hunt down a master criminal in this pulse-pounding thrill-ride that's packed with awesome stunts, subtle humour and explosive confrontations. Timothy Dalton brings urgency, charm and deadly determination to his portrayal of the super-agent, who leaves the British Secret Service arid begins a fierce vendetta after his friend Felix Leiter (David Hedison) is brutally attacked by drug lord Franz Sanchez (Robert Davi).
Awesome water stunts
- Licence to Kill review by JD
The bar brawl stunts are poor but the water stunts incredible. A more emotional plot than usual but also more brutal. Some parallels with Crocodile Dundee which was better acted but lacked the high budget stunts. Dalton is a good Bond but, as is so often the case, surrounded by some stunning poor performances. So glad Judi Dench took over as Q.
