Top 10 James Bond Movies

Timothy Dalton in The Living Daylights


Timothy Dalton stars in this down-to-earth thriller where Bond becomes tangled in a web of Soviet defectors, Afghan freedom fighters and an American weapons dealer. As Dalton's first movie, this is a bare-bones Bond that brought realism back to the series after the light-hearted, sometimes ridiculous Moore era. It is a complex quasi-thriller with twists and turns that are consistent with the original Fleming novels. The plot and characters aren't over the top, while the Bond girl is a low-key Slovakian cellist (who never actually has sex with Bond!). There are still plenty of fun action scenes, though, including a car chase with a gadget-festooned Aston Martin and a thrilling airplane fight scene over the Afghanistan desert.
