** Ultimately, the end of the movie is a PyrrhicVictory: Bond defeats Silva, but that was his only victory. Everything else went to shit. Given the levels of GenreSavvy that Bond villains have been displaying in the Daniel Craig movies, it was almost inevitable that one would ultimately win.

* HarsherInHindsight: After the explosion at MI-6, the news reports "a terrorist attack in the heart of London, leaving 6 dead and many more injured". In March 2017, a terrorist attack in Westminster (just two bridges further) also claimed the lives of 6 (including the perpetrator) and left many more injured.

* ChekhovsGunman: Played with regarding [[spoiler:Mallory. GenreSavvy viewers will be able to work out that he's being set up for something, so it's heavily suggested he's a MoleInCharge to throw us off the scent as to how Silva gets into MI6's systems. In fact, he's destined to be the replacement for M.]]

* StoutStrength: One of Silva's henchmen posing as one of Severine's "bodyguards" is a rather burly Oddjob-lookalike who puts up a fairly decent fight, although Bond succeeds in landing more blows than he does.
