* {{Narm}}: [[LawyerFriendlyCameo "Blofeld"]] pleading for his life, as Bond dangles him from a helicopter, saying "Please, Mister Bond! I'll buy you a delicatessen! In stainless steel!" It was apparently the film's producer, Albert R. Broccoli, who came up with that line, which is supposed to be based on Mafia slang he picked up during his youth in [[BigApplesauce New York City]];[[note]](back in the day, a delicatessen with easily-cleanable stainless steel fittings was a top-of-the-line cash cow and status symbol for its owner, and hence a worthy bribe or reward for a fellow gangster)[[/note]] before plummeting down the chimney while emitting a BombWhistle.

* LoveItOrHateIt: For most Bond fans, this is either Creator/RogerMoore's best film (that isn't the nigh-universally beloved ''Film/TheSpyWhoLovedMe'', anyway) or [[SoOkayItsAverage his dullest]].

** Subverted as the helicopter was moving at speed and had Bond jumped, he might have been injured and at the mercy of Blofeld.

* SurprisinglyImprovedSequel: After the incredibly over-the-top ''Film/{{Moonraker}}''.

* SurprisinglyImprovedSequel: After To the incredibly over-the-top ''Film/{{Moonraker}}''.''Film/{{Moonraker}}'', if you're in the "realistic Bond" crowd. Of course, if you prefer the humorous style, it is, instead, an example of {{Sequelitis}}. Take your pick!

* {{Squick}}: Bibi Dahl isn't very far past her mid-teens and she's not a virgin. Even Kristatos isn't aware of this, and Bond is quite shocked by the news. And if her age and lack of virginity isn't squicky enough (she has reached the ages of consent of both Italy and Greece, if not by much), the reason we know she isn't a virgin is that she tells a man more than twice her age that while attempting to seduce him. Given the wink that Columbo gives Bond after the Big Bad has been taken care of when 007 comments that Bibi might have a new sponsor, it seems that Columbo has a broad concept of the word, and apparently isn't bothered by her age...


Added DiffLines:

* SpecialEffectsFailure: In the climbing scene, where Apostis (a henchman of the BigBad) attempts to drop Bond off the cliff by loosening his hooks, the moment where Apostis starts falling off the cliff himself after Bond throws one of his hooks at him, right behind him "on top" of the cliff a part of the actual filming room can clearly be seen.

* WinBackTheCrowd: Widely regarded as a return to form after the exaggerated silliness of ''Moonraker'', opting for a much more down-to-earth plot against the backdrop of the Cold War.

* NightmareFuel:
** The poor mook that gets devoured by sharks due to Bond's efforts to avoid drowning (admittedly, the "devoured by sharks" part was unintentional). He dies begging his boss to save him ''as the sharks eat him''.
** The mook that gets injured, but actually survives being shot by Melina. Being hit with a crossbow bolt must the extremely painful and he cries in agony until Milos ''finally'' knocks him out.
