License to Kill is believed to be darker than other movies about Agent 007. This movie shows Bond as a person who looks for revenge: his good friend is almost killed by a drug baron whose name is Franz Sanchez (Robert Davi), and James Bond begins to look for him.

This drug lord is a big problem for everyone, and MI6 give Bond the license to kill: now Agent 007 is even more dangerous than he was before. The matter is that Sanchez and his people not only tortured Bond's friend but they also killed his young wife Della (James was the best man at their wedding). So, nothing can stop Agent 007 and he will not sleep until he finds everyone responsible for his friends' suffering.
