This is the 15th installment of the James Bond series and the first to star Timothy Dalton as James Bond.
It was released in 1987.
The film's title is taken from Ian Fleming's short story, "The Living Daylights."
It was the last film to use the title of an Ian Fleming story until the 2006 installment "Casino Royale."
A series of incredible actions are seen in the last part, where, with the Mujahideen's help,
Bond plants a bomb aboard the cargo plane carrying the opium.
He is however spotted and has no choice but to barricade himself in the plane.
Kara Milovy, Bond's female partner, drives a jeep into the back of the plane as Bond takes off,
and a vicious henchman called Necros also leaps aboard at the last second.
After an amazing and thrilling struggle, Bond throws Necros to his death and deactivates the bomb.
Bond then notices Shah (the Mujahideen's leader) and his men being pursued by Soviet forces.
He re-activates the bomb and drops it out of the plane and onto a bridge,
blowing it up and helping Shah and his men gain an important victory over the Soviets.
Then stop four engines of the plane because fuel runs out.
How do Bond and Kara survive?
You will see one of the most incredible and hilarious actions in your movie-viewing experiences.
I'm pretty sure you wouldn't believe it at all even after viewing the film twice---if not thrice.
Although the film is far from realistic, you can certainly enjoy it.
