An associate to General Koskov, Brad Whitaker was an American arms dealer who didn’t care what country he was dealing to or what army he was supporting, so long as he got his money. It wasn’t the most memorable part for a Bond villain, but it wasn’t any worse than the rest of The Living Daylights. This movie introduced a new Bond and a new attitude to the world, as it strove for realism and authentic espionage action. The character of Whitaker proved to be the type of real-world threat that the filmmakers were going for, and for that they succeeded.
