Synopsis


The Living Daylights
The Living Daylights represents the first appearance by Timothy Dalton as "Bond...James Bond." Based loosely on an obscure Ian Fleming short story, the film finds Bond assigned to aid in the defection of KGB agent Jeroen Krabbe. 007 must prevent an unknown sniper from killing Krabbe before he can reach the West. The mysterious assailant turns out to be the luscious Maryam d'Abo, who, as it turns out, is not all that she seems. The plot wends its way through a scheme to trade several million dollars' worth of diamonds for weapons, which will be shipped off to mercenaries worldwide. The climax takes place high above the clouds in a cargo plane loaded with opium. Dalton would play Bond one more time in License to Kill (1989) before handing the franchise over to Pierce Brosnan, who was slated to star in Daylights but ended up being held back by a TV contract with Remington Steele. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Licence to Kill
For his second outing as James Bond, Timothy Dalton is working on his own rather than on behalf of the British Secret Service in this follow-up to {$The Living Daylights). When his American friend Felix Leiter (David Hedison), an agent of the Drug Enforcement Administration, is seriously injured by drug dealer Franz Sanchez (Robert Davi), 007 is out for blood. There is precious little time for the usual Bondian quippery and campiness, resulting in a marked increase in bloodletting (including the "implosion" of secondary villain Anthony Zerbe). A climactic highway chase involving an oil tanker and a helicopter is the highlight, as well as Benecio Del Toro in an early role as the psychotic henchman Dario. Licence to Kill's intensified taste for violence lessened Bond's box-office value, and helped keep 007 off the screen for another six years before Pierce Brosnan took up the mantle. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    I was excited when I seen that Bond movies where being released in "actor sets" I couldn't find the Dalton set locally and ordered it from Bestbuy.com I was a bit annoyed upon opening the blu-ray and seeing no digital version included. The Bronson set I got elsewhere had digital versions included. I still recommend this set to anyone that is looking to build up there bond collection, so as long as you don't care about only having the blu-rays.

    Dalton is undeniably impressive

    Dalton’s record in the role, however, is undeniably impressive. Though he only made two films, The Living Daylights (1987) and License to Kill (1989), both of them are excellent films. Dalton took the role in a completely different direction than Roger Moore had done. Moore emphasized light comedy and played Bond as something of a dandy. Dalton, by contrast, showed us a burned-out, tough-as-nails, bitter and cynical Cold Warrior who seemed to hate his job but was utterly unsuited to do anything else.

    Did not have a digital

    All the other actor collections containing three or more movies in this series had digital copies. As with George Lazenby's "On Her Majesty's Secret Service." Dalton's collection is one I would suggest pre-ordering the single discs by themselves if you want to the digital copy, plus you get "Spectre" movie cash or the beautiful steelbook covers.

    Bad James Bond Movies, Just Bad!

    I really don't recommend these James Bond movies. Timothy Dalton is a good actor, just not a good James Bond. He's the worst, second only to George Lazenby. If you're looking for good James Bond stuff, bypass these movies. I rather watch the movies with Pierce Brosnan. If you're that hardcore of a James Bond fan, you may have them in your collection whether you like them or not!

    Had been looking for James Bond movies for quite a while and made this purchase for a Christmas gift. The price was right. Cannot beat classic James Bond Blue Ray for less than fifteen dollars. Both of the Timothy Dalton films were included. If you already have some Bond Films and don't want to double up by purchasing the whole collection then the mini-collections are a good way to go.

    The Most Underrated Bond

    They kinda tried to do with Dalton what they ended up doing with Daniel Craig, that is a more serious Bond. I guess the timing wasn't quite right or something. I should note I'm not a Bond fan, but I like these movies, especially License to Kill, and the Craig ones. But this is a good affordable set for your casual fan.

    Good Collection of Dalton's Bond Movies

    This is an excellent way to buy Bond movies. They packaged the Dalton movie together, so you don't have to search for them. We've watched one and quality is very good. The package we bought is not blu-ray, so I assume the quality of a blu-ray would be better. The movies are good Bond movies and very watchable.

    Although this set isn't the ultimate dvd collection but is the best option if you like a certain actor playing James Bond. Also note that this collection is not in the order in which the movies came out its in the order of which movie that actor played James Bond in. Great for fans of 007.
