This is a review for The Living Daylights (Ultimate Edition 2 Disc) [DVD].

What can I say? I'm probably in the minority here, but I think Timothy Dalton was an excellent James Bond. He portrays the character exactly the same way as Daniel Craig, but Timothy has far more charm and humanity! Unfortunately, for Dalton, his performance was, and still is, derided. This is most unfair. It's also a great shame he didn't continue in the role as he has aged extremely well and could have easily gone on to equal or even surpass Connery and Moore's score of films. Then we wouldn't have had to suffer Pierce Brosnan's emasculated Bond. Pity.

The movie itself is also underrated. The plot is not the usual megalomaniac trying to take over the world. It concerns cross and double cross, diamonds, opium and arms dealing. This makes for a more believable film.

Film ratio is 2.35:1. Audio is DD 5.1. The picture quality is excellent and so is the sound.

The extras disc is brimming with the usual fantastic documentaries, trailers, gallery, etc.

You should definitely add this film to your Bond collection as it's one of the very best in the series. Dalton's final Bond appearance, Licence To Kill, is very good too, but much darker in tone.

One of the best James bond films - and Timothy Dalton - his debut - is quite intense, brooding, tough and likable, but I feel he lacks that suaveness of Sir Roger Moore, Pierce Brosnan and Sean Connery - everyone chimes on about Roger Moore being old but forget that he had an excellent comic timing and balance, which mr Dalton lacks. But he's still quite good, atleast in the action end, is likeable, and his chemistry with Maryam D'abo is great. Its got a nice romantic feeling. Great action sequences and a great plot impressed me greatly. Far better than Dalton's 2nd film, License to kill.

One of the best Bond films of the series and one I have watched six times now. Dalton is superb, most of the supporting cast are good too and it contains one of the best developed plots of the series.

Timothy Dalton is great actor and he is also good Bond. Film has many interesting points and wiews not to mention the exceptional Bond girl. The not so good was the main plot and the evil viilain.The ending was the weakest point. But you travel around the world
and also experiece battle of the airfield in Kabul and escape scene from Czechoslovakia puts the points to plus side.

A classic bond film. A interesting plot with a few twists and a healthy dose of action, enough to make this bond film go with a bang

Classic Bond from an actor sadly overlooked. Dalton was the next most sinister Bond to Craig.
