Added DiffLines:

* VindicatedByCable: Lived a short life in theaters to disparaging reviews. However, like many films of TheEighties, {{HBO}} was very good to it.

Added DiffLines:

** The bit where 007 inadvertantly walks into a spiders web ''really'' isn't convincing, as the spiders are clearly rubber (and he even [[ArtisticlicenceBiology swipes a red kneed tarantula off his elbow with much ease]]).

* BrokenBase: Bond dressing up as a clown during the first climax. Depending on who you ask it's either too silly (even for a Bond film from the RogerMoore era) or it's an acceptable, some daresay even clever, way of showing just how desperate Bond is as he races to avert tragedy.

* HarsherInHindsight: The way Bond let Major Smythe save face, so to speak, was the opposite of how Bond dealt with Dryden, an MI6 suspected embezzler, in ''Film/CasinoRoyale''.

* SpecialEffectsFailure: In the intro, as the plane flies through the building, you can see a white pole holding it up at least once. No freeze-framing required if you know [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=VlBUPtKIoHo#t=100 when to look]]. It was much too dangerous to have the plane really flying through a building with people inside, and too expensive to paint out the pole.

It's also a bit awesome to realize that they took a real jet plane through a building even if it wasn't flying.
