Day 317

movie: The Living Daylights
starring: Timothy Dalton, Maryam d'Abo
genre: Action, Drama
year: 1987
format: Shaw Video On Demand

plot: Bond is asked to help a member of the KGB to leave Czechoslovakia. When they find out it's a set up, Bond is then sent to Afghanistan, where he manages to stop a drug lord from selling millions of dollars in opium.

I found this to be fairly funny.  The oneliners are witty and Dalton's delivery of them slices through the drama of the film.
This is the first of only two of the Bond movies for actor Timothy Dalton.

I noticed that one of the end scenes, where Bond and his female lead are in the plane with the jeep was almost identical to the scene in Die Another Day (Day 299) I suppose that after twenty movies they had to start recycling scenes.  Die Another Day, I mean.

what do i think i learned from this film?
The bad guys in all action films seem to want to have a nuclear war.
