The Living Daylights (1987)

The Living Daylights (1987): Bond film no. 15 and first of only two Dalton entries. More 80s music theme song, this time by A-ha. Much more serious in tone compared to Connery / Moore. John Rhys-Davies is here, years before Sliders or LOTR. No sci-fi mad scientist stuff this time, straight-up spy stuff (more or less). Assassinations, defections, Russia's internal politics, Afghan rebels, weapons, smuggling, drug deals, faked deaths, etc. Might be a tiny bit too long. Surprisingly, I liked this one!

@roytang Isn't John Rhys-Davies in the Indiana Jones films?

@switchfollows Yes! But I knew him first as Prof Arturo and as Gimli, so those are the roles I more strongly associate with him
