I'll have to go with the bridge bombing in TLD. The music rocks and so does the miniature of the bridge. 8)

Least favourites would have to be Kara almost crashing the plane (wouldn't she try something to avoid that? and the backscreen projection looks pretty bad) and the tanker wheelie (reason - it's not made believable enough, I just can't buy into it).

Voted for the tanker on one set of wheels, avoiding the missile and then smashing down on the enemy vehicle. One of the great "Raaaaaaaaaaaahr!" moments in Bondom.

Cargo net fight by far. Truly breathtaking, especially with that shot when Bond and Necros are catapulted out on the net - and WHEG's chorus kicks in.

The cargo net fight. There's just something extremely exciting I find about Bond battling his enemy while hanging on a net while the damsel-in-distress pilots the plane with a bomb ticking away and John Barry's music underscoring it all. That's entertainment! :D

Honorable mention to the ejecting from the plane.

Surprised to see all the love for the cargo net fight. The sequence's concept is thrilling alright, but the individual elements within make it a tad boring for me. The music, while good on its own, feels a bit uninspired at that point in the film IMO. We've been listening to variations on the TLD melody in the action tracks for a good part of the runtime, and then we return to Necros' theme... and it isn't all that much different from 'Necros Attacks'. The fight itself is nothing to write home about - could've been edited tighter. I do agree the moment the net initially slides out is a shocker, and that opinion hasn't worn off on repeat viewings.

I think the cutting back to Kara hurts the fight. Actually, I think that's a problem throughout TLD. Bond's fight in the jail could've been quite harsh, but it's glossed over and diluted with all the constant reaction shots of Kara and Kamran. It strikes me (pun intended) that Dalton never really got a good one-on-one in either of his films. None of his fights are horrible, but they're not exceptional either. I think they missed an opportunity by not having Bond and Sanchez, or Bond and Dario, engage in more fisticuffs.

Well, it's a lot better in my opinion, mostly down to "Inflight Fight's" final few bars. Helped in part due to Glen tracking them in for Saunders's death.

I consider the climax of LTK to be Bond's escape from the Wavekrest (not that I dislike the rest - just that I find that scene nearly perfect, from 'compliments of Sharkey' onward to the laughing as the bills stick to his face.)

If you really want something from act 3, then I guess when Dalton knocks out the windshield and crawls out after Sanchez as the trucks close together. THAT was pure character.

Cargo Net fight for me.

I think part of the reason is that Necros is maintained as a credible threat all the way to this point, the fight he has as the Milkman infiltrating the secure base is probably one of the very best in the series and doesn't even feature Bond but is the start of a great build toward his final and deserved end.
