The 15th Bond production, and the first of two from Timothy Dalton, this Blu-ray, which is also a Target exclusive, is another very good looking release.


No problems here.

"All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible. This I did." T.E. Lawrence

The Living Daylights is one of the few James Bond films I can watch repeatedly. I might buy this BRD.

Finally watched it on a large 2:35 screen and it looked pretty darn good - for 10.00 at Best Buy up here cannot complain. I just love the John Barry score and the title/ end credit songs too.

Very happy to hear The Living Daylights has turned out well on Blu Ray. Loved Dalton as Bond. Guaranteed buy for me. The first Bond I saw at the cinema and felt he was a nice change after 12 years of Roger Moore. But no denying Roger Moore was very funny. Will not be buying the box set as the reviews have not been great especially Goldeneye. That is unacceptable for a 50th anniversary.

Yeah but the best part, the absolute tops, is the cargo net stunt towards the end of the flick. DONE FOR REAL!!! No CGI!!! Amazing. For me, the best part of any of the Bond pictures was always the stunt work, the way in which they worked to constantly better themselves. Moonraker kind of sucks from a plot point of view, but the opening, with three guys jumping out of a plane and only two chutes between them .... astounding. Actually, I take that back. It's not so much that it sucks, plotwise, but rather that there is no plot, it's just pure constant motion. And speaking of people jumping out of planes, Gypsy Moths is one that really out to be out on BR, along with Blue Max, and The Great Waldo Pepper (which has a weak ending, but who cares?).
