** ''Film/LicenceToKill'' is by far the darkest entry. When an AxCrazy South American druglord brutally maims an old friend of Bond on his wedding night and murders his bride, Bond sets out on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge which sees him (with the help of tough-as-nails ActionGirl Pam Bouvier) becoming a RogueAgent and carving through the cartel in gory fashion. It's something of a ContestedSequel as a lot of viewers were put off by the sheer violence, but it comes closest to emulating the tone of the novels.
** ''Film/CasinoRoyale2006'', as a ContinuityReboot, sees a return to brutal and bloody fight scenes, gritty realism, Bond being even more of an AntiHero than usual, and the story taking on elements of a political thriller. ''Film/{{Skyfall}}'' gets ''even darker'' by throwing in plenty of {{Deconstruction}}s, Bond's DentedIron status, questions on his sanity and [[spoiler:the good guys' victory over the villain being hugely [[PyrrhicVictory pyrrhic]].]]

** More prosaically, a few Bond movies use the franchise's signature sex scenes to provide important dialogue or plot points, usually involving the villain's mistress or henchwoman revealing parts of the EvilScheme to Bond.

* AdaptedOut: In many novels by Fleming, the villain is on the payroll of SMERSH, a (real, though actually dissolved in 1946) Soviet anti-espionage organisation that seeks to undermine western powers at every opportunity. It wasn't until the ninth book that he introduced SPECTRE, a criminal organisation with no political ties (because he worried [[HilariousInHindsight Soviet villains would]] [[TheGreatPoliticsMessup become dated]]). The films either make the villains independent entrepreneurs (see ''Film/{{Goldfinger}}'' or ''Film/LiveAndLetDie''), or outright change their SMERSH allegiance to SPECTRE instead (''Film/FromRussiaWithLove'', ''Film/DrNo'').

The series has spawned [[FollowTheLeader legions of imitators]] and in many ways [[TropeCodifier defined]] most of modern Spy Fiction tropes, with Bond himself having become the quintessential ActionHero. In fact, many tropes featured in action films to this day can be traced back to the franchise, from the [[BadassInANiceSuit Tuxedo]] to the BondOneLiner to the CoolCar.
