Weapon And Combat Details Fans Noticed In James Bond Movies

List Rules
Vote up the details that hit the mark.

For decades, James Bond has thrilled moviegoing audiences with exciting gunplay, daring escapes, and narrowly averted international terror attacks. Even though many would argue Bond's greatest strengths are his quick-thinking and charm, none of this would be possible without some very important weapon and combat details. Much like Bond's hip-fire shot at the camera, fans online (with a little help from Q, of course) are quick on the draw when spotting many of the most interesting examples. In Casino Royale, for instance, when 007 gets into a brawl in a warehouse, he actually uses his wristwatch as brass knuckles to add a little oomph to his punches. Some examples have great continuity. Reaching further back in From Russia With Love, Bond at one point carries an explosive suitcase given to him by Q, an item that was first introduced in Goldfinger. There are even examples that, like Bond himself, are a little cheeky. If you look closely in Thunderball, two atomic bombs have handling instructions on their sides-- "Handle like eggs."
