* Pam Bouvier....PERIOD! She's a genuine ActionGirl who kicks tail as good as Bond and her presence is especially refreshing considering the other young women in this film consist of a helpless rape/murder victim and a girlfriend of the BigBad who's a constant victim of DomesticAbuse (though she does become more empowered as thee movie goes on and helps out Bond). She even puts Dario in his "place" twice....She holds him off when he's pervin' on her by pointing her shotgun at his (rather excited) neither regions AND she's the one who actually kills Dario by shooting him and making him fall into the cocaine shredder. All that's missing is a good "This is for Della Leiter, pig!".[[note]]This Troper imagines Della looking upon it all from the peaceful Hereafter, smiling.[[/note]] In an odd way; LicenceToKill is an incredibly ''Feminist'' Bond film.

* Basically, this whole movie is about showing us just how dangerous Bond can be if you really piss him off. It's equal parts awesome and [[NightmareFuel terrifying.]]

Added DiffLines:

* The fact that Bond is able to win Sanchez's trust by ''admitting his status as a British agent'', leaving the drug lord with no reason to feel suspicious of Bond. Bond is able to utilize this to great effect in making Sanchez vulnerable until he has the opportunity to take him down.

* The signature gun all by itself is made of this. The reaction of the ninjas when they are unable to use it against Bond is priceless.

** Plus, this is the only film aside from ''Film/{{Octopussy}}'' and ''Film/{{Skyfall}}'' in which Q actually has a sizable role, instead of just showing up at the beginning to give Bond his gadgets.

** Timothy Dalton deserves a nod in regards to that scene for not using a stunt double for when Bond is running from the explosion. In more than one interview around the time the movie came out, Dalton said he was practically running for his life.

* Pam bringing a shotgun and kevlar to a BarBrawl.
* Pam rescuing Bond as Dario's about to kill him:
--> Dario: (Laughs) "You're dead".
--> Pam: "You took the words right out of my mouth".
--> (shoots him).

* Bond sees a bunch of Sanchez's goons coming up to his yacht with the corpse of Bond's ally, Sharkey, one joking about having the guy hung up like a fish. Instead of a clean escape, Bond takes the time to grab a spear gun, tell the killer "Compliments of Sharkey" and nail the guy as payback. As the movie illustrates, ''never'' screw with Bond's friends.

* Bond's final battle against Sanchez, leading to [[spoiler:Bond using Felix's present - a lighter - to set a gasoline-soaked [[ManOnFire Sanchez on fire]].]] It's one of the few times - if any - that Bond kills his major villain with any satisfaction...
** YMMV on "satisfaction". It seemed like Bond was just exhausted and just wanted to ''end'' the "mission".
