In the scene where Bond is following the bomber in Miami Airport, when the bomber goes through the security door using the ellipsis password, and proceeds down the corridor,Bond tries to catch the door before it shuts. There is a hand visible which pulls the door shut for a brief second and holds the door in place.
The opening credits include the words "Ian Fleming's James Bond." All other Bond movies only have this if it's an original screenplay. When they're based on the novels, regardless of how loosely, they're "Ian Fleming's (name of movie/novel)."
US version is cut in the toilet fight and the stairwell fight scene to secure a PG-13 rating. In the later, Obanno's henchmen hitting the ground and Obanno crashing into the glass window are the most obvious cuts. However, additional punches, elbows, and shoving are removed and the struggle at the bottom of the stairwell was heavily shortened. The music score has also been remixed to accommodate the edits, and alternate footage used to smooth over some of the edits.
