James Bond 007 Marathon #16, Licence to Kill

Tonight we watched “License to Kill” (1989). It was Timothy Dalton’s second (and last) Bond film and starred Carey Lowell.

Carey also starred in Law and Order as A.D.A. Jamie Ross from 1996-2001. I recognized her right away but Ed wasn’t so sure. Then, we got to wondering what she’s been doing since 2001. Well, in 2002, she married Richard Gere (and had his son in 2000).

As for the movie, it was pure brillance. Both of our favourites by far. I could tell you about how great the gadgets were, plot, smartness, romances, twists, just everything but I think that you should just watch it. Our high rating might have been due to the fact that neither of us had seen it before. Regardless, I would watch it again to find any subtleties that we might have missed. Ed rated it a “9” and I gave it a “10”. Yes, it was THAT good.

The only teeny, tiny issue we had was that it didn’t appear to show the credits for the theme song at the beginning (turns out it was Gladys Knight singing). However, we might have missed it. Regardless, it wasn’t the best theme song but it was good.

Next up is #17, “GoldenEye” (1995), Pierce Brosnan’s first Bond movie.
