Horses for courses really, you could argue clambering around on the moors without looking where you're going when there are thinly frozen over pools of water is Darwin level too.
In real life that may be kind of dumb, but in Hollywood you can fall through the ice, have an underwater fist fight with a bad guy, swim down to the bottom, pick up a flare gun, and shoot your way out.
Please don't give Mythbusters another stupid Hollywood thing to test out.


The thing with the flash-light struck me as really dumb too, just a really, really obvious thing you'd think they would have known better to not do. It's attract WAY too much attention. I'd think some moonlight and a degree of night vision would give one SOME level of sight at night without waving around a flashlight attracting attention. But, hell, couldn't Bond have had some night-vision goggles or something in the car? The flashlight just struck me as the story needing a way for the villains to find M.
