* LoveItOrHateIt: Whether the film is one of the best in the series or one of the worst depends entirely on who you ask.

** When Krest is shown the pile of Sanchez's money sitting in the decompression chamber that "he" stole, you'd think Krest would tell Sanchez that he didn't take it and was set up. However, he says that it's "not (his) money", which earns the obvious response from Sanchez ("You're right, amigo. It is ''mine''!"). While Krest was looking guilty as sin to begin with, his weak defense didn't exactly help his case. Somewhat justified though, given that Krest had been drinking and was nervous being questioned by Sanchez to begin with.

Added DiffLines:

* SignatureScene: Felix's torture, the tanker chase, and Krest's notorious death scene would probably count as such.

Added DiffLines:

** Several of the tanker drivers vanish from view just as their respective trucks explode, in what is clearly a case of some haphazard editing.

Added DiffLines:

** Sharkey's death; not helped by the fact that he was such a NiceGuy. Bond doesn't take his demise that much better.

Added DiffLines:

** A sharp eye can see in some of the driving shots during the climax that there now appear to be five tankers as opposed to the four present.

** Creator/Benici DelToro as Dario (He was twenty-one at the time, making him the youngest actor to play a Bond villain).

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Dario. Largely due to the EvilIsSexy trope. He's a handsome fellow, and if it wasn't for his near constant [[SlasherSmile Slasher Smiles]], you'd almost forget that he murdered and probably raped Felix's wife.

* FridgeBrilliance: A tragic instance of it. Thanks to this movie, Bond and Leiter now share the same misfortune of losing their brides on their wedding days.
** And it makes the ensuing RoaringRampageOfRevenge understandable when you realize that seeing this happen to Felix must have reopened a very traumatic wound...

** Sanchez himself would probably qualify in a world where he did not piss off Bond- he has "an invisible empire from Chile to Alaska" and is ready to expand; he is the ''de facto'' ruler of a BananaRepublic due to bribing and intimidating its dictator; he keeps his ForTheLulz attitude even in the face of a ''1000 year'' jail term because he knows he'll escape in less than a day; casually hands out $1-2m bribes....really, if Bond hadn't made him so paranoid and ended up killing him, he'd probably have ended up the most succesful crime lord in history, even considering that some of that paranoia turned out to be justified.

** The scene where Bond is captured... by ''ninjas''. It honestly feels like a scene lifted from one of the campier Roger Moore films.
