-The laser melting soldiers and missiles in DAF
-The rear projection in DN
DAD remains the yardstick by which all shoddy effects will be measured. This was the year of Star Wars Episode II, Lord of the Rings, Spider-Man and Minority Report so the technology was there. The only excuse for the parasurfing sequence being such a joke is cost cutting. Had they gone to ILM we might not have been happy about it but at least we wouldn't be cringing into our seats in the cinema lest someone should realise we are Bond fans. At least DAF can console itself that there was no other way.
Good call on the sled going over the cliff as well Matt007. If you just axed the entire shoddy sequence and went straight into the car chase it would make absolutely no difference to the film except make it less of a laughing stock.
