* OutsideGenreFoe: Up to this point, Bond himself has normally gone up against European and/or Asian villains, who tend to be after world domination with science on their side- here, he's up against a American-based drug ring led by a Caribbean dictator who has voodoo on his side.

It's one of the more [[LoveItOrHateIt polarizing]] ''Bond'' films. Some like it for its change of pace it's the first time Bond deals with both organized crime and the supernatural while others feel it was simply a {{Blaxploitation}} film with the 007 logo slapped on the front. It is noteworthy in that amongst the things it did to try and distance it from the "silliness" of the Creator/SeanConnery era, it didn't include a scene with Q (he's mentioned though). This is a bit undermined by the fact that it's still ''a film about voodoo,'' down to including what is implied to be the real Baron Samedi. Plus, the gadgets used were further over the top than seen before.

Added DiffLines:

* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: Hamilton and Strutter both being collected by the funeral parade after they are killed, all done in plain view of the entire city of New Orleans. One can only assume the onlookers to any of Kananga's many traps are also working for him.

* BloodlessCarnage: Mr. Big pops like a helium balloon, but there's no gore, since that would push the age rating up. Likewise, him dying in the shark tank was probably nixed by the studio.
