23. 'License to Kill' (1989)
Drab in the extreme. Timothy Dalton's second and wheezing, final turn as 007 was barely recognizable as a Bond film. Robert Davi was a livewire as drug lord Franz Sanchez, but Dalton's pursuit of him played like a substandard episode of a TV cop show. License became the lowest grossing Bond movie ever. For six years, Bond disappeared from movie screens.
