From Russia with Love was also good in that regard.
I disagree, LTK may not have had the budget that his predecessors had, but it had an excellent plot, a great three-dimensional performance from Tim and phenomenal stunts. It’s one of the best in the series and way ahead of its time.
I’d also argue that it’s a bit simplistic to call it a cop show, just because it features a Latin American drug cartel. Basically that’s where the similarity ends. You might as well say that YOLT is a poor man’s Kurosawa film because it is also set in Japan.
And that LALD was a blaxploitation ripoff. And you would still be correct on all accounts.
Agreed. Part of the film takes place in Florida and the bad guy is a drug dealer. On that very superficial basis the film has been regularly derided as a Miami Vice rip-off, disregarding everything else about the movie. I can understand if people criticize the film for its cinematography and feel, since it was made in Mexico under trying conditions and with budget limitations. But it feels less derivative than many other of the Bond films that have hopped onto trends.
Anyone who calls LTK "OnE LoNg MiAmI vIcE ePiSoDe" is deluding themselves 😉
To be fair, I sort of get why some people have that criticism of LTK. I really like a lot of it, but the direction can be a bit... well, questionable at times. The weird slow motion run with Felix and the DEA agents with a confused looking Bond is an example - even for the time it probably would have been cheesy and inadvertently funny. It's the sort of thing that really gives off a 'straight to television' vibe. A lot of the cinematography in general gives that impression. There's also the strange 'angel' moment just before Dario's death that's been discussed on these forums in the past.

lmao , cool
How TD looks, as of today.
James Bond: No Way Home
Both of his films were good-to-great. And Craig isn't imaginable without Dalton paving the way.
Eon and the series owe Dalton a debt.
The LTK dinner jack that he signed, went for £21,200.
Art Malik also took the Taliban thing on the chin and claimed that Osama bin Laden had copied him :)
Loads of applause at the start and finish of the film, and when Maryam and Art appeared in the credits.
Nice. Always feels good to see a Bond actor get new material to work with.
