The Living Daylights ★★★½

The greatest weakness of this film is the absence of any truly memorable sequence. Yes for now I'm thinking that the Aston Martin ice scene was pretty cool and I remember that they rode into Vienna on a cello case, but otherwise it doesn't really separate itself from the pack very much. Oh, wait, that dangling out the back of an airplane stunt on a net was pretty thrilling, and I'm not sure how they did that one. That was an exciting scene. That being said, the film is highly entertaining and has that grit that makes the Pierce Brosnan films so endearing. The cheese is mostly on hold for this one, much to it's benefit, and the style is hard to deny. There are some strange editing goofs and voice syncing errors, but otherwise it's a lot of fun to watch and the romance is cute.
