Been a while since I saw the movie, so I don’t remember the interior shot, so I’ll take your word for it.

If you were a stunt man, would you want a 2002-2006 era Takata air bag going off in front of you?

Fair question.



It is what it is.

Welcome to the wonderful world of movie making, where fighter pilots routinely remove their oxygen masks in flight, and firefighters search through fully involved structures without Scott Pak SCBA or their face masks on, etc.

My money is on the airbag being unnecessary for the stunt driver, possibly even a liability, and most importantly, interfere with some aspect of getting the shot.






I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

It's a James Bond movie stunt; not meant to have any kind of realistic depiction of a crash, hence the removal of the air bags on the vehicle.

Here's a vid I just found that I recalled from the DVD way back when. [youtu.be]

yeah, I mean I get it, but its like the first thing I noticed.

There was just a decent accident in front of me a few days ago -- airbags deployed -- huge mess everywhere, and they filled the cabin, at least a half dozen.

So just kinda of weird not see any.

I can picture the scene now. Q is going over all the special features of 007’s new car, and tells him about a new safety feature they’ve developed. It’s called, “Not-an-airbag.”

Actually it makes sense that they would remove a feature that would end most James Bond car chases before they ever really got started. The cars are built to take a lot, so the airbag would just be a liability for Bond.

They needed the space for ammo storage for the machine guns and the oil slick reservoir.
