Customer Review

on 16 October 2009
As Bond movies go this one is quite good and Timothy Dalton brings back some of the Connery type serious approach to the role. No Roger Moore flippancy here.
The plot involves the usual KGB, Eastern Europe locations and bad guys etc. as well as a thoroughly pleasant and attractive leading lady cellist.
The involvement of Afghan rebels fighting on OUR side just goes to emphasise how complex and protracted things are in that country.
The highlight of the film is the mid-air sequence with Bond and a baddie hanging by ropes from the back of a Soviet transport plane flying over the desert.
Look out for the subtle tribute to the classic spy movie The Third Man when the action is based at a fairground in Vienna. This involves a ride on the Ferris wheel and an assassin disguised as a balloon seller asking the famous one-liner -"Balloon Mien Herre?". Clever stuff.
