The Living Daylights

Bond destroys the plane filled with opium and infiltrates Whitaker's mansion. He enters Whitaker's "playroom" and gets attacked by his advanced weaponry. Bond kills him when he places a mini-bomb onto a stauette of the Duke of Wellington which falls on him. KGB Director Pushkin captures Russian traitor Koskov and Kara has an opening for her cello act. After the show, Bond and Kara engage in pleasurable activity.

Plot hole: Necros had absolutely no way of knowing that Bond and Saunders had arranged to meet at the cafe when they did, and wouldn't have had anywhere near enough time to track them down and set up his elaborate booby trap. Saunders only suggested the meeting place and time a few hours earlier, and it was kept strictly between him and Bond. The scene in Tangier where Whittaker tells Necros to kill another British agent takes place on the same day Bond arrived in Vienna; meaning that Necros got from Tangier to Vienna (a 5 hour-plus flight), tracked down Saunders, acquired the materials to booby trap the cafe doors (or had planned this ahead of time - unlikely) and set the trap up well in advance of he and Bond getting to the fairground. There was nowhere near enough time for all of that to happen without Necros having psychic knowledge of Saunders' movements.

Trivia: After Bond returns to London (when he's completed his mission in Eastern Europe) there's an 'establishing' shot of a London street scene. Look closely at the placards behind the newspaper vendor. One of the placards says "BLAZING JEEP AT 2,000 FEET" - a reference to the Jeep on fire and going over a cliff in the pre-title sequence perhaps?

Answer: Pushkin pushes a button on his watch to summon his bodyguard, but Bond sees him do it. He rips Ava's top off so the incoming guard will be "distracted" by her semi-nudity, allowing Bond to take him out.
