    Final Dalton Bond

    I watched this movie.
    I agree with you, Wonder Bread He-Man.
    It's terrible and not quite interesting.
    To me Dr. No to The Living Daylights marked the height of all Bond movies.
    Try to reach inside of me, try to drain my energy
    Let me show you just what I'm made of
    Simple curiosity trying to take a bite of me
    Let me show you just what I'm made of now...

    Appropriate that a film with such a dark heart helps bring a halt to the more innocent age of the Cubbi era.

    It came too soon....people were still not over the Moore era , after all it had laster 12 (!) yrs.

    This was the first hard core Bond , Craig would pick up on this trend some 15 yrs later.

    Anyway , as to LTK :

    -great performances by Dalton & Davi....imo Davi is among the best villains
    -del Toro as Dario is pretty good as well
    -Lowell was good as Pam
    -I didn't mind Wayne Newtons cameo or Q , I guess they felt it needed a little comic relief , doesn't ruin the movie for me

    Cons :

    -if you're looking for colorful locations , look elsewhere......this is gritty and looks it too
    -bad pr campaign , should've had poster art
    -to release it during summer '89 was financial suicide , fall would've been better but even then it'd compete with BTTF II......at this point the average fan was kinda fed up with Bond , "been there done that"......it was just another one they thought
