Corrected entry: One big mistake in the movie, in the last part of the movie when Pierce Brosnan is in the invisible car (whose camouflage was broken by villains' bullets) and is being followed by the villain in another car, Brosnan's car number plate colour changes from yellow (which taxis use) to white (for normal car) while he keeps sitting inside the same car and never gets out as the car was constantly chased.skhurana333
Corrected entry: The ASAT missile fired at the satelite was launched from a ship. In reality, ASAT is always launched from an F-15 because it would not have enough fuel to escape the Earth's atmosphere otherwise. (01:43:10)
Corrected entry: At the start, Bond puts some explosive underneath the easily removable compartment in the briefcase. When he lands, the case is handed to someone, who's told "check this". How badly do they search it to not immediately find the explosives? Even if that person's job is just checking the diamonds, the security is so tight around that area it's inconceivable that they wouldn't check the case for bugs or something. (00:06:05)
Corrected entry: When Gustav lets go of the Antonov, the airflow would have resulted in him passing along the side of the aircraft to freedom, not into the engine. This happens with other people we see fall out of that hole - why's he different? The parachute would if anything add to the effect, not drag him further out. (01:56:45)
Corrected entry: When Jinx first appears out of the water, notice her expression. She looks like she's doing a photo shoot for a magazine. She keeps making this "sexy face" as she walks in slo-mo toward the beach. But when the camera angle changes and returns to normal speed, she looks bored and disinterested.Mark Bernhard
Corrected entry: Miranda Frost confiscates Bond's watch and other gadgets when it is revealed that she is actually working for Gustav Graves. Correctly, he does not have a watch on in the following scenes. However, after the rescue of Jinx from the destroyed ice palace, Bond is shown making his first 'update' briefing with Charles (M's assistant) as the story continues. He is now wearing an Omega Seamaster again. He could not have retrieved his original watch from Miranda, and he has not yet at this point in the story had any opportunity before this point to have any contact with Q or any other MI6 operative, so where did he get his replacement watch? It doesn't make sense that Bond would go to the trouble of going out and finding a retail dealer to buy a new production-model $4,000 Omega Seamaster in the midst of this world emergency just because he wants to wear a watch for the short time until he gets issued his new Q-approved replacement.
Corrected entry: Bond pushes a dashboard button to open the roof of his car when it is upside down sliding on the ice. Notice that the button is labled "ROOF", not "ROOF OPEN", indicating that it is not intended soley to open the roof, but to open and close the roof. After he flips it back on the wheels, he pushes a button down on the floor console somewhere to close the roof. It is not likely that there would be two seperate controls to operate the roof.
Corrected entry: In Q's projects lab, he introduces to Bond his newest gadgets. When he wants to demonstrate the sonic ring, he asks for a weapon from Bond, who picks up a Walther P99 pistol from the table and hands it to Q. After Q fires the weapon at the bullet-proof glass, he hands the gun back to Bond, who then puts the weapon into his empty shoulder holster. Why is Bond taking this gun with him? Where is his own gun? It can't be this one, for Bond has never been in this lab, nor even this entire complex yet. There was no opportunity for him to have relinquished his gun to Q or any other MI6 operative before this point in the story.
Corrected entry: At the beginning of the scene where Moneypenny is using the virtual reality suite to simulate her seduction by Bond, her nose is quite distinctive - narrow and upturned at the end. When she kisses Bond, the tip of her nose is smaller and rounded.
Corrected entry: During the scene where Icarus is first set off, illuminating the palace enough that sunglasses are handy to use, notice that even though the light is very intense, neither Bond's nor Jinx's pupils shrink. (01:12:05)
Corrected entry: In the scene where we see that Jinx has fainted inside the water cell, there is a tiny little red spot on her nose.
Corrected entry: The downward air pressure from a hovercraft is strong enough to set off a land mine.
