0134: Debrief: The Living Daylights
In this mission debrief for THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS, we identify the iconic elements we would use to describe it as "the one with", shake the Bond cocktail and pick this film's most potent ingredients, toot the horn for underappreciated elements, round up our favourite trivia tidbits, and give our final top/middle/bottom rankings.
Timothy Dalton is suave and lethal as superagent James Bond in this turbo-charged acting/adventure that pulls out the stops for excitement. Armed with a gadget-laden Aston Martin and his licence to kill, Agent 007 must stop a terrifying weapons conspiracy that may be linked to the Soviet military high command!
