What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Living Daylights is the 15th adventure in the James Bond series and the first to star Timothy Dalton. Made in the 1980s, it featured a concession to the AIDS era and showed Bond seducing only one woman in the line of duty, though other women are still treated as sexual objects. The PG-rated violence features heavy fighting, chasing, explosions, shooting, and killing, with only a little blood shown; the violence is not particularly realistic. Language is not an issue, except for a brief middle-finger gesture, and drinking and smoking are kept to the background, although Bond smokes a cigarette and drinks a whiskey. Opium smuggling is a part of the criminal plot. All in all, this is one of the less iffy Bond films and perhaps a good place for fans to begin. (The next film in the series, Licence to Kill, was an attempt to showcase a much darker Bond.)
