** Sir Robert turned out to be kind of a jackass, all things considered. He was willing to destroy an ancient church in Azerbaijan--his wife's homeland, no less--for his oil pipeline (which caused the local villagers to riot), and he stole his wife's inheritance to further his own ambition and greed.

%%* CorruptCorporateExecutive* CoolGuns[=/=]RareGuns: And how! Apart from Bond's classic Walther P99, we also have the uniquely-shaped P90 submachine gun, Steyr TMP machine pistol, and G36 with laser sight making appearances. Not to mention Zukovsky's cane gun.
** Also a subversion, the Cigar Girl uses what was clearly meant to be a Milikor MGL grenade launcher during her boat chase with Bond. But the gun itself looks more like an Amsel Striker shotgun, of CallofDuty fame. What do these weapons have in common? A wide barrel, drum magazine, and basic design (magazine between trigger and foregrip). And being completely awesome.

** Renard gets hold of the plutonium sphere from a bomb, forms it into a rod, and tries to insert it into the reactor of a submarine and cause a meltdown. Among the reasons this would never work: weapons-grade plutonium is less radioactive than reactor-grade plutonium. The reason you don't use reactor-grade Pu in a bomb is that the nuclear reaction will blow it to pieces part of the way through the detonation process, and you'll only get a small explosion.
*** The idea of the plot was not to cause a nuclear detonation, merely to cause a catastrophic meltdown. Think Chernobyl, not Hiroshima.

** The reactor of the 1967-vintage nuclear sub had fuel assemblies (that plutonium rod) which could be manually inserted and removed. That's not how a Russian sub reactor is designed (though it is closer to certain heavy water power reactors.) To refuel the sub, they first need to shut down the reactor for 90 days so the fuel is not too hot from a radioactive and thermal standpoint. Then they cut open part of the sub's outside hull to remove the fuel assemblies. Big job, needed once every 5 to 10 years. The bullet stuck in Renard's brain would have killed him by then and the audience would be quite bored.

* [[spoiler:LoveInterestTraitor:]] The trope name alone is a spoiler, never mind who it refers to, but suffice to say that James Bond receives a nasty surprise over the course of the movie. [[spoiler: Namely that Elekra King, his LoveInterest, is in fact the BigBad.]]

* {{Fauxreigner}}: Bond impersonates a murdered Russian scientist in order to get close to Renard's nuclear operation. Not even Dr. Jones is fooled by the ruse. Not by his accent or anything though; after conversing in English she adresses him in Russian to test him, but Bond aces it. The scientist in question is too old for Bond to convincingly pass off as.
