* HarsherInHindsight: The villains' plot, depriving the Bolivian people of water, [[{{Narm}} seemed silly]] when it was released. In 2016, it was determined that the government of Flint, Michigan, deliberately allowed their water supply to become toxic, which led thousands of locals to suffer serious ailments such as lead poisoning.

** According to WordOfGod, the reason Bond and Camille do not sleep together in this film is because the writers felt that having their hero seduce a traumatized rape victim would be in exceptionally poor taste. In the [[Film/{{Skyfall}} very next film]], however, Bond does in fact seduce a traumatized rape victim... and it got pretty much the exact reaction they feared they would get with this one, so one wonders why they forgot.

* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: Averted, with a solid, if not particularly inspired, FPS (even if it's more of a ''Casino Royale'' adaptation - only five of its twenty levels are from ''Quantum of Solace''). The PS2 version is a TPS, and the DS is hard to describe. Incidentally, the Next-Gen and PC versions were done by [[VideoGame/CallOfDuty Treyarch]].

** With Mr. White returning in ''Film/{{Spectre}}'', there could be closure.

* TheScrappy: Dominic Greene is popularly cited as the weakest of the Craig-era villains, and one of the most underwhelming baddies in the franchise's history. He doesn't have any of the visceral psychosis or sadism of Le Chiffre, Silva or Oberhauser, and he overall comes off more as a shyster trying to make a quick buck than as a WorthyOpponent for MI6's top agent. Tellingly, while [[Film/CasinoRoyale2006 Le Chiffre, Vesper Lynd]], QUANTUM, Mr. White and [[Film/{{Skyfall}} Raoul Silva]] are all name-dropped in ''Film/{{Spectre}}'', Dominic Greene most definitely ''isn't'', and he's the only one of Craig's past villains whose picture is never shown in that film.

* HarsherInHindsight: Bond's triumph over QUANTUM, destroying much of its leadership, becomes less pleasing in ''Film/{{Spectre}}'', where it's implied that QUANTUM was either reorganized into or superseded by the more dangerous SPECTRE.

* HilariousInHindsight: Much was said about the untrained Greene putting up a close fight against Bond in the climax. Although it's TruthInTelevision that wild attackers can be dangerous to even elite fighters (and Greene was aided by an early surprise attack and the explosions knocking both around), it still got flak. As of Spectre, Greene is the ''only'' Craig-era BigBad to actually fight him, let alone come close to killing him in combat.
