One of the Best Bonds
Watching the Living Daylights, I can see that Dalton was *far* superior
to Roger Moore. Moore was just a clown, looking for his next joke. When
Moore wanted to quit after 1979's Moonraker, they should have let him
But Dalton brought a serious side to the role. You can see that he's
determined to get the job done, and realizes he could be dead any
minute, so he focuses on the mission and not clowning. Just like Sean
Connery did back in the 60's.
---> As for the actual story, that too is serious & well-written. One
of Bond's long-term enemies, Russian KGB Commander Pushkin, has crossed
the line and is actively killing off agents. (To quote the movie "He's
gone mental like Stalin.") Bond is tasked to search out & kill Pushkin,
but Bond refuses because he knows Pushkin & knows he'd never cross the
line like that. Instead, Bond suspects someone else inside the KGB is
setting up Pushkin for a fall.
And thus begins a long adventure to discover the mystery man behind the
killings. And like I said earlier, Dalton does an *excellent* job in
this role. I highly recommend his movies. 10/10
