In Licence to Kill, the James Bond franchise attempted to somewhat reinvent itself. After over a decade of light-hearted Roger Moore Bond films, it was time to get back to the source material and make Bond more gritty with Timothy Dalton.
Is Licence to Kill's Bond simply a cold-hearted killer, or is this a welcome return to the spirit of the books of Ian Fleming?
Nowadays the film enjoys a growing fan base among Bond followers.
Recurring Bond guest in the booth is Tom Frankland.
