* JustPlaneWrong: [[HelicopterBlender Yeah, the part where the helicopter blades are almost vertical when the pilot is trying to slice Bond and Wai Lin up while hovering a couple feet off the ground and advancing towards them at a few feet per second?]] [[ArtisticLicensePhysics Helicopters don't work that way]].

** It defeats the purpose of using a stealth ship if they are going to be using the radio while trying to remain undetected. Standard procedure for any ship trying to hide is to operate under EMCON (Emission Control), which means transmitting no electronic signals of any kind...radar, radio, anything.

**{{LaughablyEvil}}: Carver is so hilariously and cartoonishly over-the-top that he is often at least as humorous as he is frightening, if not more so.

* DistaffCounterpart: Wai Lin is basically a female, Chinese Bond, right down to the flirting, dry wit, and holding a military rank. FridgeBrilliance kicks in when you realize that this is exactly why her relationship with Bond is so shallow.

* AdvertisedExtra: Creator/TeriHatcher, who was heavily promoted as the film's Bond girl over the non-Caucasian Michelle Yeoh, clearly doesn't want to be here. She admits that she only took the role to fulfill one of her (ex) husband's fantasies and there are all manner of stories about the actress showing up late on the set and just being a pain in the ass to work with. Reportedly Pierce Brosnan was quite disappointed the producers didn't cast Monica Bellucci in the rule (she actively campaigned for it). Although Paris is a great [[StuffedIntoTheFridge plot device]] the character is just an object to be fought over by Bond and Carver. ("I believe you have two ''things'' that belong to me!" sneers Carver, the first being his GPS encoder.)[[note]]Bellucci would, however, get her chance and turn to be a Bond girl eighteen years later in ''Film/{{Spectre}}''[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* TruthInTelevision: If you thought a media company wouldn't really engineer a war for ratings, you'd actually be wrong. Back in TheSixties, CBS subsidized a planned mercenary coup of Haitian dictator Francois Duvalier for the purpose of shooting a television documentary. The FBI foiled the invasion plot, and CBS was chewed out by the FCC and the House Commerce Committee over the incident.

** Carver is so blatant in his villainy it's a wonder he's only being investigated now. As Bond points out, Carver released news of the dead sailors so early that there's no way he could have learned of it from any official military or government sources. When he tries to have Bond killed, he's already produced a segment to report on it which will be on the air and hour after Bond has died.

* ObviouslyEvil: Carver. Not so much in public as when he's talking to his subordinates. His entire organization is based on engineering catastrophes and profiting from them, and he ''revels'' in it.
