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

All I can say about this film. Is GREAT! People say this is the worst bond film ever. An some cases there wright. But in my case their wrong. This may not be your old Sean connery classics but it still has the bond edge to it. Great action great effects i love the plot an excellent ending.
LTK was a good and solid addition to the 007 series, I just thought it was a little too much of a war movie as opposed to a James Bond movie. Timothy Dalton is good as Bond but I think that my favorite Bonds are Roger Moore and Pierce Brosnan (haven't seen enough Sean Connery).
This is one of the best 007 films. The story flows smoothly and intelligently, the action is not contrived, and the cast were perfect for their roles. Dalton is much more masculine, charismatic, down to earth, and skilled(in acting) than Brosnan. Whoever switched Timothy Dalton simply had no taste for sophistication.
*sigh* What a waste of talent...
