Corrected entry: When poisoned with digoxin during the poker game Bond goes into a tachycardia and has a cardiac arrest. Digoxin would act to slow the heart rate and would not cause death by tachyarrhythmia as is the case in the movie.
Corrected entry: When James and Vesper are lying on a deserted beach and their yacht is in the distance, how did they get to the beach? There is no dinghy tied up on the beach. They aren't naked. Did they put their clothes in plastic bags and swim? The yacht is quite far away. And when we see them sailing (motoring) into Venice, there is no dinghy trailing behind them or an inflated one lashed to the yacht.
Corrected entry: In the sinking house scene, during the shot of the house sinking just before Bond gets slashed across the chest, a blue screen can be seen briefly in the top right of the shot. This was put behind the model of the house during production. It would be hard to pass this off for sky as it is a very dark shade of blue. (02:07:00)
Corrected entry: When Bond starts to type his resignation letter on the boat in Venice he's wearing an Omega Planet Ocean watch with a black strap. When he finishes typing and closes the laptop he's wearing an Omega Seamaster with a silver strap - a completely different watch. (01:57:10)
Corrected entry: In the final fight, in the house in Venice, a bad guy shoots a nail gun at Bond. Nail guns use safety catches that prevent them from firing unless pressed firmly against a surface. Although this safety can (on some models) be pulled back to allow a nail to fire, this is never shown to be the case, and since the gun was picked up from a construction site it can't have been modified by the bad guys.
Corrected entry: in the scene where Bond wins the car from Dimitrios, before he bets everything the dealer just revealed the Turn (4th card), however, after the betting round is done and no other cards are dealt, she asks them to reveal their hands and the 5th community card is on the table (Dimitrios' 3rd King).
Corrected entry: At the end of the foot chase with Bond and the bomb maker, as the bomb maker runs into the embassy, the guard already has the bomb maker's papers in his hand and is talking on his radio getting some kind of confirmation, before the bomb maker has even stopped to hand him his papers.
Corrected entry: When Vesper and Bond are in the Venice hotel room near the end of the film, we see Vesper get out of bed and see her get dressed - there is no bra visible as she does up her dress. Cut to a few minutes later after Bond has pulled her from the sinking building, and her wet dress reveals the outlines of a bra under the same dress we seen her put on earlier.
Corrected entry: Why did Bond's female assistant refuse to give him another $5 million after he lost the first $10 million? I thought she would do anything to save her kidnapped boyfriend.
Corrected entry: In the scene in the collapsing house in Venice, there is a moment where Bond rips an electricity cable out of a junction box and electrocutes a baddie. However, as Bond is holding the guy's shoulder while he electrocutes him, he should also be electrocuted.
Corrected entry: In the Miami Science Museum, Bond stabs Dimitrios in the side with a knife, killing him instantly. No one would die so quickly from such a wound, especially someone strong enough to hold their own against 007. Even a severe laceration to the liver (the area where Dimitrios is stabbed) would take minutes to bleed out. Listed as trivia only because the Bond mythology is replete with instantaneous deaths; villains don't get to die slowly.
Corrected entry: The prototype airplane featured in the Miami airport sequence was a cosmetically modified 747. It was originally delivered to British Airways in 1980, and was retired from service in 2005. The unique quad engine arrangement was a physical mock-up; the stretched upper deck was digitized. Following filming, the airplane was dismantled.
