* RedHerring: [[spoiler:Mallory is a shady, stuck-up ex-soldier, played by the guy who also played [[Film/HarryPotter Voldemort]], [[SchindlersList Amon Goeth]] and [[Film/RedDragon Francis Dolarhyde]], who tries to get M to resign in his first appearance, scorns Bond in his second, and is present at a would-be crime scene in his third. Not a great start for ''the future M''!]]

* HollywoodHealing: Averted. Bond's shoulder wound from the opening sequence ''dramatically'' affects his performance, even after he's given several months to recuperate. Granted, "recuperation" consisted of getting wasted and laying women in the middle of nowhere. Also, Mallory takes a bullet to the shoulder from Silva during the shootout in the boardroom, and wears a sling for the remainder of the movie.

Added DiffLines:

** In the first scene, M orders Bond to leave Ronson behind so he can get the hard drive back, sacrificing one life for the greater good and not having to risk the lives of more agents. She orders Eve to shoot at Patrice for the same reason, even if it means the possibility of hitting Bond. As we learn later, she did the same thing to Silva. It didn't go well.

*** And another thing; why are you so dismissive of old school gadgets like the exploding pen? Did you skip out on the [[RealityIsUnrealistic primer detailing the (often real) uses of them]]?

Added DiffLines:

* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: Averted. Bond looks like ''hell'' throughout his HeroicBSOD. His return to form symbolizes that he's snapped out of it.
