Timothy Dalton shows up and doubles George Lazenby's 007 outings! So he's got that going for him, which is nice. He also manages to put in two excellent additions to the franchise. This one is a nice change up from what we get used to. Instead of some overarching villain plan to take over the world, this one is a simple revenge story.

Also, it is really nice seeing some big cool stunts that are also fairly realistic. The opening sequence before the credits is really well done, with a nice addition of our heroes wearing wedding tuxedos. I really like Timothy Dalton. He is a great Bond, and I wish he'd have made more films to up how great the franchise is.

So much better than the 1st Dalton movie. It features a good story, although a rather special one: Bond is a rogue agent and there are 2 Bond Girls.
