** The [[CoolCar Aston Martin V8]] that Bond drives in this film is awesome in a meta sense as well as its general appearance - it was the first Aston Martin that Bond had driven on screen since Film/OnHerMajestysSecretService. Also, the original car - not the "winterised" version - was owned by the man who secured the new endorsement deal: Victor Gauntlett, then-CEO of Aston Martin Lagonda.

* The fact that Creator/TimothyDalton did some of his own stunts (hanging onto the roof of a truck, sledging down on a cello case, etc).

Added DiffLines:

** Bond sees a roadblock set up before him and proceeds to activate a screen, line up a target and fire a pair of Stingers to take it out.
-->'''Bond''': I've had a few optional extras installed.

** That RedShirt himself is a Crowning Moment Of Awesome. A somewhat unimposing-looking, skinny middle-aged chap (presumably played by a veteran stuntman) who nonetheless almost succeeds in fighting the much younger, bigger and stronger TheDragon to a standstill. Hell, from the looks of things, Necros didn't even manage to kill the guy. Give that guy his own movie series!

* [[TheDragon Necros]] successfully infiltrates an [=MI5=] safehouse by dressing up as a milkman. He proceeds to have a ''brutal'' fight with an [=MI5=] RedShirt, then uses a radio handset, adjusting his voice subtly, to warn everybody outside of a (false) gas leak. With the help of milk bottle grenades, he effortlessly kidnaps the target and escapes in plain sight by slightly changing his outfit to resemble a paramedic. Magnificent. While his theme music triumphantly blares in the background.

* The CarChase. Every time a Bond film does a gadget-laden car chase right, it is awesome. This is one of those times.
