| Shame Dalton didn't take over sooner
I like most of the Bond movie's and i can see positives in all the portrayals of our favourite spy. I enjoyed Moore's first 5 movies (Moonraker got silly, but it was still fun) After seeing Dalton's gritty and reckless take on the Bond character, i remember thinking that he should have replaced Moore before he made 'Octopussy' and 'A View to a Kill'

Dalton's Bond is probably the closest to Fleming's original idea, and it's only the Connery level of charisma that is lacking. The living Daylights is a fine addition to the genre and it's an action packed thrill ride with a gritty edge.

7/10 Nice one Timothy

Trivia

The rocket fired from the ghetto blaster in Q's lab in the movie was actually a special effect activated off-screen by Prince Charles who was touring the studio at the time of filming with then wife Princess Diana. The FX crew offered to allow Prince Charles to activate the rocket that was used in the final cut of the film. The Royal visit also instigated the famous footage and photograph of Princess Diana hitting her husband over the head with a breakaway bottle, apparently instigated by Jeroen Krabbé. Later, Prince Charles would visit a Bond set again in 2019 for the filming of 'Bond 25' (2020) [See: 'Bond 25: Daniel Craig shows Prince Charles around James Bond studio' (2019) (V)].

Goofs

When Bond drives into the shed and onto the lake, a militia car follows him. This car is Lada VAZ 2103. Later, when the car is shown from the back, it is Lada VAZ 2106, an updated version of the VAZ 2103. But when the car starts to sink, it's VAZ 2103 again.


Crazy Credits

When A-HA is credited as the performers of the opening theme song in the opening credits, their band name is given in the actual "A-HA logo font." This is the only time this has been done in the series.
