* TheCameo: Madonna cameos as Verity, Miranda Frost and Gustav Graves's fencing instructor. Thus far she's the only theme song singer to make an appearance in the film, unless you count Sheena Easton singing the ''Film/ForYourEyesOnly'' theme on screen.

The film holds many vignettes to previous Bond outings, such as Brosnan playing the 'loose cannon' in the tropics (''Film/LicenceToKill''), Halle Berry exiting the water in slow-mo (''Film/DrNo''), a diamond-encrusted sky laser (''Film/DiamondsAreForever''), and action scenes bordering on self-parody (''Film/{{Moonraker}}'').

Added DiffLines:

* CatFight: Jinx and Miranda's swordfight on the Antonov. While overall very realistically done, each is still conveniently clad in a tank top to provide some sex appeal.

Following Zao's trail leads him to Gustav Graves (Toby Stephens), a wunderkind entrepreneur who's made a fortune in blood diamonds and is building some kind of space-based sunlight reflector [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial which in no way resembles a]] [[KillSat death ray]].

* EndOfAnAge: In many ways, this is the last Bond film to feature Creator/PierceBrosnan as the titular character and the last film in the original franchise that started with ''Dr. No''.

It was also the last of the films with a pre-WarOnTerror vibe, which the DarkerAndEdgier DanielCraig films reflected.

* DirtyCommunists: North Korea's military eagerly supports the conquest of Japan and South Korea through Colonel Moon's plan. It's stated at least once that there was a coup by the hardliners before the invasion, presumably to avoid implicating the entire country as [[CardCarryingVillain Card-Carrying Villains]].

Downplayed/averted during the Cuba scenes, even though FidelCastro was still in charge at the time.

* JustPlaneWrong: Graves' plane undergoes an explosive decompression that sucks everyone minus Bond, Graves, Miranda and Jinx from the aircraft, and none of then undergo the potentially fatal effects of hypoxia at the plane's sustained altitude. Plus, most planes today are designed so that bullets alone cannot trigger such a catastrophic event.

* DarkerAndEdgier: The intro, bordering on NightmareFuel. For the first time, the intro is used to advance the film's story rather than just hint at it's theme. We get various scenes of Bond's torture, which includes waterboarding and beatings, and those customary silhouettes of nubile women aren't titillating Bond, they're either participating in the torture, soothing him, or might just be hallucinations that he's having.
