Continuity mistake: James Bond does his bungee jump down a dam that looks like it's in the beginning of spring, but when he emerges from the factory, it is dead winter with no dam in site, since they are on a mountain top. (00:01:00)
It turns out that 006 (Alec Trevelyan) didn't die at all. He actually was Janus and he was conspiring with Onotopp and Ourumov. Onotopp ropes from a helicopter and tries to kill Bond but Bond shoots the pilot and the chopper flies out of control and Onotopp's back is broken as she hits a tree. Bond sticks a pipe into the satellite's controls and before it could lock onto Goldeneye. 006 and Bond fight on the satellite and Trevelyan falls. Bond makes it to a helicopter and it flies away. The satellite explodes and falls on Trevelyan.
[Bond puts his gun against Valentin Zukovsky's head.]
Valentin Zukovsky: Walther PPK. Seven point six five millimeter. Only three men I know use such a gun. I believe I've killed two of them.
Trivia: When Bond is playing baccarat with Xenia, his last hand, and only winning hand against her, is two face cards (a king and a queen if I remember correctly) and a six. In baccarat, face cards and tens are worth 0 and cards under ten are worth their number. So, his cards are, in order, 0-0-6, the code number of his lost friend, Alec Trevelyan (006).
Question: If the opening scene was staged to get 007 to surrender, then it seems it was a terrible plan. Look how many Russians got killed by Bond and 006. It seems very awkward that the whole thing was staged. Why did Bond need to surrender? Why couldn't 006 just shoot him (besides the usual reason that 007 must be executed through an overly involved and escape-riddled plan) What would they do with him once he was captured? Too many questions and a weird scenario.
