PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Thriller
James Bond is sent to investigate the connection between a North Korean terrorist and a diamond mogul, who is funding the development of an international space weapon.
Tang Ling Zao ("The Man Who Never Smiles") is the first Korean henchman to appear in the franchise, since Oddjob, in Goldfinger (1964).
Mr. Van Bierk:
Look, what is this? I'm supposed to...
When Bond and his buddies surf out of the sea onto land and pushes the head covering back, you notice his hair is soaking wet, which would be correct if he's wearing a wet suit, a few seconds later when they go to "meet" the landing helicopter and unzip their suits, they're fully dressed and dry underneath- this would be correct if they were wearing dry suits, but his hair wouldn't be wet if he was wearing this kind of suit.
The opening credits play over scenes directly related to the plot of the film (in this case, the torture of 007). This is a first for a Bond film. Also, footage from this sequence later appears as a brief flashback - something only seen in the series twice before (OHMSS and Moonraker).
