Overview

The Living Daylights represents the first appearance by Timothy Dalton as "Bond...James Bond." Based very, very 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 like practically everyone in the film except Bond 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.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Blame it on the age of AIDS and safe sex, or simply an attempt to produce a kinder and gentler James Bond, but The Living Daylights was supposed to usher in an era of the notorious ladykiller becoming a one-woman man. Never mind that a new love interest would eradicate Bond's monogamy in License to Kill (1989) -- for the moment, at least, audiences got to enjoy the quaint images of Timothy Dalton and Maryam d'Abo in such chaste pursuits as holding hands and riding a ferris wheel. That this would become a focus of Dalton's first Bond movie says a lot about what the rest of the film has to offer. Dalton's two Bond films clearly found the franchise at a low point, but The Living Daylights is at least lighter on its feet and more fun that the dark and violent License to Kill. The plot is almost headache-inducing, but the set pieces are carried off with veteran Bond director John Glen's usual panache -- including a thrilling Aston Martin gadget sequence and an airborne escape in a Jeep -- so fans weren't ready to have Dalton's head just yet. Dalton is certainly debonair enough, but he's humorless -- any good Bond needs to learn to lighten up. The Living Daylights marks the first appearance in the Bond series of Joe Don Baker, though he would be better known for a different character, the talkative good guy Jack Wade in Goldeneye (1995) and Tomorrow Never Dies (1997).
