The Living Daylights
Bond sets his sights on a beautiful killer
Succeeding Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton’s debut as 007 isn’t half bad, and the film also marks the final time composer John Barry worked on the series. It’s a rather old-school story – James Bond discovers that there’s more to a Russian general’s defection than meets the eye and he gets involved with a beautiful cellist-turned assassin, too – but it’s packed with action, a great snow chase and a fine supporting cast, particularly Art Malik’s Afghan rebel.
