Particularly jarring examples of this include the firing of the Icarus laser upon the Ice Palace, the final confrontation on Graves' plane, the invisibility feature of Bond's Aston Martin, and the infamous wave-surfing scene as Bond tries to outrun a massive wave (The fact that live surfing was utilized in the film's opening scene without the use of any CG makes this even worse for some). satellite
