One of the standout actions sequences of the film involves Solo and Kuryakin attempting to escape a THRUSH laboratory hidden deep in the arctic. The agents must navigate treacherous terrain, fend off hordes of THURSH henchmen, and outmaneuver a helicopter in order to reach safety. This scene showcases the thrilling action that the movie is known for.

Another memorable scene in How to Steal the World features Bashir demonstrating his weather-control technology to a group of potential buyers.
