* 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"]].

** 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 CIA uncovered evidence that state-controlled Russian hackers tried to influence the US election in 2016.

* 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. Then, he starts tearing through St Petersburg in a tank.

* UseYourHead: Bond, strapped down in a helicopter with missiles approaching, manages to ''headbutt'' his way out of trouble.

* HarsherInHindsight: M tells Bond "If you think I don't have the balls to send a man out to die, your instincts are dead wrong. I've no compunction about sending you to your death. But I won't do it on a whim." If Raoul Silva's backstory in ''Film/{{Skyfall}}'' means anything to you, M is ''not'' making an empty threat. On top of that, ''Skyfall'' would be the second Bond film to feature a turncoat MI6 agent with a desire for revenge against the agency as its BigBad, and Silva, while sharing a few of Trevelyan's traits, wasn't as devious as him. He was MORE devious and successful, though his plan didn't involve destroying London entirely.

Added DiffLines:

** M says that the satellite pictures of the Severnaya bombing are live, because unlike the American government, the British government prefers not to get its bad news from CNN. In ''Film/{{Skyfall}}'', Bond gets some bad news via CNN in most releases.
