The 2006 film contains examples of:

  • Awesome Music: "You Know My Name".
    • The James Bond theme. In an interesting choice, the familiar theme music isn't played very much in the movie... until the very last scene, when James shoots Mr. White in the leg as revenge for Vesper. So the cue to the Bond theme is not only satisfying after such a long wait, but emphasizes Bond's badass attitude. It also firmly cemented both this particular 007 and, by extension, Daniel Craig, into the role.
  • Ending Fatigue: The ending is considerably lengthened from the equivalent segment in the novel.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Mr. White, full stop. In this film and Quantum, the character has more Crowning Moments Of Awesome in his limited screen time than the two villains of both films combined. It leads this troper to believe he's been The Man Behind the Man all along. Also, Mathis qualifies with the role as aide and confidante to Craig's Bond in this film.
  • Foe Yay - What else can you say about a naked torture scene that starts off with the Big Bad eyeing up Bond and saying "you've taken good care of your body"? (Well, maybe ouch...).
  • Funny Aneurysm Moment: Mathis' line "Being dead does not mean one cannot be helpful." becomes this when in Quantum of Solace, Bond takes the deceased Mathis' money to continue his quest.
  • Share the Male Pain
  • Tainted by the Preview - The second Daniel Craig, a blond, was cast to a play a character that (per Fleming's description) had been black-haired for the entire franchise, all hell broke loose. A website entitled "Daniel Craig Is Not Bond" even managed to get foreign press for all the fan ranting. Also, Moneypenny and Q weren't in the movie. Then the first trailer hit. Then the movie came out. Nobody even remembers the furor anymore. Hell, Roger Moore had brown hair anyway...

The 1967 film contains examples of:

The 1954 TV film contains examples of:

  • It's Short, So It Sucks: It's just 54 minutes (then, again, you can see above that the other two adaptations are overly long...).
