License to Kill (1989)

Our Bond series continues with License to Kill, one of Timothy Dalton’s two entries.  He’s a polarizing 007, for sure.  Count me as one of his defenders.  I like the dark edginess he brings to the role.  Additionally, this film has killer action scenes, a strong female lead in Carey Lowell, and meatier story for Bond.  To pair with this film, we enjoy a nice Chianti.  Throughout the books, Bond is a big fan of Italian reds, so it makes sense to have one here.
