* AbsenteeActor: Q is absent from the film. Desmond Llewelyn was then appearing in the show ''Follyfoot'', but was written out of three episodes to appear in the film. The producers decided not to include the character, feeling that "too much was being made of the films' gadgets", and decided to downplay this aspect of the series, much to Llewelyn's annoyance.

* LatexPerfection: [[spoiler:Dr. Kananga as Mr. Big]]. A subversion- the actor is wearing real latex (and a wig), and is playing both characters [[spoiler: who were always the same person anyway.]] The attempt to change the facial features works pretty well, all things considered.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: For Roger Moore's run, Bond wears some fairly intimidating black gloves during run. Bond's demeanour here is much less humorous, and perhaps even more hard-boiled than Sean Connery's portrayal. The supernatural elements also do not fit well with ''any'' of the scenes in Harlem.other films.

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.
