* UnderageCasting: Denise Richards was 28 at the time. Having a doctorate in nuclear physics at that age is at least plausible, but having the experience to be assigned to working overseas as a project lead isn't.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: Renard is AxCrazy and ruthless, and he knows it. Which is why he's nevertheless disgusted at [[spoiler:MI6 for flat-out abandoning Elektra to him and consequently causing her StartOfDarkness.]]

** The bullet is said to be moving through the medulla oblongata of Renard's brain, enough though the hologram shows it moving through his frontal lobe. Moreover, the medulla is the stalk that connects the brain to the spinal column, and it controls the heart and lungs. If it was penetrated, Renard would be dead instantly.

** Bond also gets a soft chuckle from Q with his response to "R" fumbling around in an inflatable jacket.
--> '''Bond:''' He seems well-suited for the job.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationExpansion: While characters are often expanded upon in film novelizations, Raymond Benson's novelization devotes ''an entire chapter'' towards the end of the book to delve into the psyches of Renard and Elektra. In the novelization, the money was never the original reason for kidnapping Elektra; rather, his detached mental state due to his condition had made him sexually awkward, and had caused him to begin fixating from afar on attractive celebrities and public figures, one of whom being Elektra. Also, [[spoiler:whereas Elektra is played off in the film as a dispassionate narcissist who uses emotion purely as a tool for manipulation, she is genuinely distraught enough in the novel at the thought of Renard dying that she has to stop herself from trying to convince him not to board the submarine]].

In Creator/PierceBrosnan's third ''Film/JamesBond'' outing, Bond is assigned to watch over a once-kidnapped daughter of a {{Ruritania}}n oil baron after he dies securing money for her release. "Renard the Anarchist" is quickly deduced to be the likely culprit. [[SecretIntelligenceService MI6]] tried to assassinate him before, but you can't keep a good terrorist down: it only resulted in lodging a bullet in Renard's brain, which is slowly killing him as it moves inwards but is also destroying all of his senses. Renard can't smell or taste anything and, crucially, he can't feel pain.
