* ConspicuousCG: There's more of this here than perhaps in any other Bond entry. 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

*** Both films have diamonds being used to build a giant space laser KillSat to neutralise ground-based military defences by a villain that seemingly is KilledOffForReal in the teaser, has access to technology to alter his appereance and impersonates a respected industrialist.

X Meets Y is Just For Fun, not a real trope
* XMeetsY: More than a few critics described the film as being essentially the first half of ''Film/LicenceToKill'' combined with the second half of ''Film/DiamondsAreForever'', with said second half being abundantly sprinkled with ''Film/{{Moonraker}}'''s tone.

* ArtisticLicenseBiology: The "DNA replacement therapy" manages to top the dubious scientific accuracy of ''Film/{{Moonraker}}''. The explanation given by the doctor in charge of it being a textbook example of LegoGenetics.

As per usual for 007, the film opens with a botched mission in which Bond is betrayed and beaten up. This time, the North Koreans get the honour. Freed via a prisoner exchange after 14 months of torture, Bond is aghast to learn his freedom was purchased at the cost of his adversary, a war criminal named Zao, walking scot free. Discharged by [=MI6=] and receiving a predictably chilly reception from M, Bond [[ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight becomes a rogue agent]] and resumes hunting for his quarry.

Bond manages to escape the British vessel holding him captive, and he operates on his own until M unofficially recruits him to investigate Gustav Graves.

* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: Played with; Bond is filthy with a shaggy beard and hair after being tortured for 14 months. This is the character at his most unkempt in the entire ''series'', and audiences at the time were a bit shocked to see him in such a disheveled state. However, Bond is still in remarkably good shape for someone who had endured that type of hell for so long. All it takes are a single shave, a hair cut, a proper dinner, and a change of clothes for Bond to become sexy again.

* 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.
