Has any other Bond actor had entries which were so different to each other?
Both, in my humble view, are great films. The Living Daylights is a Cold War espionage thriller, with a highly complex plot threaded with a love story, while Licence to Kill is a revenge-based action film with plenty of machine guns. You only have to point to the differences in Bond’s clothes to see how starkly these two films contrast.
Perhaps only Connery had two such opposing films with From Russia With Love and Diamonds Are Forever, but that was eight years and a world apart, and didn’t go into production a single year later like LTD.
