5.0 out of 5 stars "Smert Shpionam!", 18 Aug. 2006
This review is from: James Bond - The Living Daylights (Ultimate Edition 2 Disc Set) [DVD] (DVD)
Death To Spies are the words to set the tone for this, the first Timothy Dalton James Bond movie. This 007 is darker, grittier and more to the true incarnation of Ian Fleming, and Dalton does a perfect job in becoming the super spy.

After the near-perfect defection of KGB General Koskov (Jerone Krabbe), 007 finds himself in a web of deciet and international arms dealing when all is not what it was thought to be. The beautiful, strong minded but naive Kara Milovy (Maryam D'Abo) proves to be one of the toughest Bond Girls of the 80's and plays just as much a factor in the story as Bond to help unravel the danger.

The selection of villains, like delusioned arms-dealer Brad Whitaker (Joe Don Baker) and the brilliant assassin Necros (Andreas Wisniewski) add more tension and a real life sense of danger to this adventure story, and give the whole movie more espionage qualities like Fleming originally wrote about.

A great number of fantastic action sequences and stunts like the final plane confrontation and airbase assault and the icey lake Aston Martin battle, mixed with stunning locals like Afghanistan, Vienna and the borders of Russia and Czechoslovakia give another thumbs up to the start of the short but sweet Timothy Dalton era and a new style for James Bond!
