** Eric Serra's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B_mRqoleUVA&feature=related "The Experience of Love"]] over the ClosingCredits deserves a mention. Retroactively appropriate, as Creator/PierceBrosnan's 007 was portrayed as being the [[ChivalrousPervert most romantic]] within the original continuity (and he's also more caring and protective towards the ladies than Craig's Bond), as he had fallen in love with ''two'' women (Paris Carver and Elektra King), and sincerely likes three others (Natalya Simonova, Wai Lin, and even Jinx[[note]][[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x390eac watch how emotional Bond gets]] when he attempts to resuscitate her[[/note]]).

** Ourumov, who despite answering to Trevelyan is himself a great villain in his own right, and every bit as despicable as the man he's sworn loyalty to.

*** Doubly funny in 2017 since the US president accused CNN of Yellow Journalism and completely discarded it as a credible source of current events.

* BadassDecay: At the beginning of the film, it seems to have happened with Bond. The mission at the dam doesn't go so well, he's belittled for his womanizing, the Russians no longer take him seriously, the new M looks down on him, even Moneypenny has grown tired of his flirting. [[SubvertedTrope Then, he starts tearing through St Petersburg in a tank]].
** Also subverted in real life. Pre-production, many of the financial backers and studio executives were worried that Bond might not have much of a purpose in the Post-Cold War world.

* ContestedSequel: As was always going to be the case with a series as long-running as Bond; while largely well-received upon release and being a favourite of many fans - in part due to being their first Bond film due to the issues in development - there is a large crowd that considers the film overrated and unfairly popular, particularly in the wake of Craig's Bond; others consider it to pale in comparison when compared to Dalton's Bond.

* FetishRetardant: Xenia Onatopp's sex scenes. The problem has nothing to with her (she's drop dead gorgeous), it's just that the only "real" sex scene she has in the movie is with a balding, overweight guy. And it ends with [[DeathBySex him being forced to enjoy a good squeeze.]] Hell, the "sex" scene with the Admiral is nothing compared to how Bond reacts during his "sex scene" with Xenia in the sauna; check out his expression upon being trapped by Onatopp's MurderousThighs: he's ''seriously'' stressed at the possibility of being raped. It should be noted that the latter scene is the only time "safe sex" is ever mentioned, in any context, in the series' entire history.

** Boris' hacking the US Department of Justice for kicks, and joking that if he is caught "The Chief of Computers will call me a genius, move me to Moscow, and give me a million bucks hard currency", has become less funny after the allegations that Russian hackers tried to influence the US election in 2016.

* MoralEventHorizon: Xenia and Ourumov ''definitely'' cross it when they slaughter the entire staff at Severnaya without a hint of remorse.....with Xenia clearly deriving ''sexual pleasure as she carries out the massacre''.

* OneSceneWonder: As in many Bond flicks, the MI6 officials only appear once in the beginning for mission briefing. However, Creator/JudiDench steals the show in her debut as M, giving Bond a tongue-lashing that her predecessors could have only dreamed of (and contributing, no doubt, to M's increased prominence in subsequent films)

* RewatchBonus: In the opening sequence, Bond gets suspicious when he notices that he and Alec have had zero difficulty breaching what should be a very secure area--"It's too easy". Alec completely dismisses his concern--"Half of everything is luck, James." It seems highly irresponsible of a trained agent to react this way--until later in the film when Alec is revealed to be a traitor. He wasn't concerned because it's precisely the setup he wanted.

*** Bond's remark "They always said [[ThePenIsMightier the pen was mightier than the sword]]." has gotten funnier thanks to the ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' "Celebrity Jeopardy!" sketch where former Bond Creator/SeanConnery (played by Darrell Hammond) [[TheProblemWithPenIsland misreads "The Pen Is Mightier" as "The Penis Mightier"]].
