I'm sitting here typing, while I re-aquaint myself with Timothy Dalton and "The Living Daylights" and I'm thinking that this movie is really quite good. He's good. Looks good; the suit, the hair, the clothes, the face....all good. Acting,....goood! Bond babe...beautiful,...strong, but vulnerable. Gadgets,....great.
This movie has it all. Everything that the previous movies had. The excitment is there. I feel....that feeling. BOND! Savin' the world. Killing the bad guys. Gettin' it done!
So why do I recall alot of pessimism when it came out? Was it because we had grown accustomed to Roger Moore? It had been FOURTEEN years. More than most marriages last. Or were we just not given enough time.....to wipe our minds slate clean? After all, Pierce Brosnan didnt make a showing until after SIX years. Six years of Bond-less-ness....sad. Six YEARS of darkness. Who wouldnt love to see him in our sights?
But Timothy; he had, well basically picked up the crown/gun in the usual time line. Every other year. 1985 was Roger Moore's last and 1987 was Timothy's first.
Guess I just wanted to say, I dont think he deserved the bad wrap he got. This is GOOD. What do you think?
