  • WHAT I LIKED: One of the best in the series, 'License to kill' sees Dalton settle into the role to bring an excellent performance with the right levels of grit and charm. Match that with one of the best protagonists, a gritty revenge plot and some of the greatest relationship dynamics we've ever seen, and you're onto a real winner.
    WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: Perhaps the last act is a touch silly...
    VERDICT: It's a shame that Dalton couldn't stay because this is Connery level stuff. What an enjoyable film.
