* The opening scene has Bond trying to track an assassin during the Day of the Dead parade. In the process, he hijacks a helicopter and the helicopter does ''several'' barrel rolls (which were done for real) as Bond kicks the assassin as well as the pilot out of the chopper to their deaths. It also rises straight up while tilted 90 degrees (which is literally impossible for helicopters to do, but when you accept the laws of action movie physics, it's an awesome scene).
