** Chang showing up in a goofy-looking fencing outfit and swinging around a big stick while [[{{Kiai}} screaming every time he attacks]], all the while acting more like [[PricelessMingVase a bull in a china shop]] than someone actually trying kill Bond. It's hard to take the fight scene seriously.

* IdiotPlot: Putting aside the question of why the Soviets would trust any Nazi with a nuclear weapon just ten years after the Nazis invaded and devastated their country, the Soviets plan to pick up Drax and his fellow conspirators within view of watching journalists in a Soviet submarine. If they just wanted to start a war, why go through the rigmarole?

* SignatureScene: The entire third act set in outer space certainly counts, for obvious reasons.

* HarsherInHindsight: See all those beautiful women on the poster? See the same beautiful women and handsome men exercising on Drax' estate and later romancing each other on the shuttle flight up to the station? Consider now that every one of them are likely slaughtered either by the good guys - the space soldiers - or in the destruction of the space station, as with the sole exception of Jaws' girlfriend (who was never one of their number anyway), the film gives zero indication of there being any survivors, casting a grim light on what is otherwise an exciting space battle.

* TheScrappy: Holly Goodhead isn't as actively despised as some of the Bond Girls who would come after her, but she's often considered the dullest, least interesting Bond Girl in the entire series. A common criticism is that she has virtually no impact on the plot after her abduction in Rio, other than providing someone for Bond to exposit to and then make out with at the end, whereas even the more widely hated Bond Girls at least did ''something'' in the climaxes of their respective films. Made worse by the fact that her book counterpart is Gala Brand, one of the few great women characters that Fleming wrote.

Made Unless you count her piloting the airship that levels the humanity-destroying bombs during the last stretch, of course, but her bland personality is still a persistent issue for most.

* {{Sequelitis}}: Some consider it one of the worst Bond films (see LoveItOrHateIt above), in which case it certainly qualifies.
