(77) Despite having nearly sunk the franchise, this film gets more right than it does wrong. The Bond we see on screen is less the showboating Moore-era playboy and closer to Fleming’s original 007.

Licence to Kill is actually quite riveting when it has all its pistons firing but takes too long getting there and stalls periodically when it eventually does.
