Corrected entry: When 007 returns to the table after Felix stakes his rebuy, a few hands have been played. In a poker tournament, you must rebuy immediately after you lose your money.

Jason Feng

Correction: There is a break in the action once Bond loses all his chips (which is why he runs into Felix, Felix would be at the table if the game was still going). There was plenty of time to rebuy before the action started up again.

Nick Bylsma

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.

Correction: An overdose of digoxin can cause different types of arrythmia. Tachycardia, is in fact one of the side effects that digoxin can cause.

Corrected entry: At the end of the scene in which James Bond sits in the shower comforting Vesper, there are shadows from the crew moving on the sink/counter in the left foreground.

Correction: I have viewed this scene a few times now and cannot see any crew moving. There is a bit of shadow that comes into the picture on the counter but I think that is caused by the camera panning out and the lighting of the scene.

Corrected entry: The 1964 Aston Martin DB5 won by Bond in the hotel poker game is the same model as that driven by Sean Connery in Goldfinger. However, the producers had to fit it with an automatic gearbox as Daniel Craig cannot drive a manual car.

Correction: Craig can indeed drive a manual car. The idea that he couldn't was just a story the press cooked up, as is detailed in his biography.

Irish01

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.

Correction: Often yachts are serviced by launch services in most large harbors. For a small fee like $5 a ride or $20 a day a small boat will pick up and drop off people on visiting yachts. Far more common really than using a small dinghy, especially if people are dressed up to go out for dinner etc.

Corrected entry: When Bond loses all his chips at the poker match, Felix tells Bond he will give him his chips to play with, but Felix is seen still playing later, which he shouldn't be; he doesn't have any chips.

kh1616

Correction: Leiter is offering to stake the five million for Bond's buy-back to return to the game after Vesper refused. He says at the time that he's almost out of chips and knows he can't beat Le Chiffre, but he thinks Bond can do it.

Captain Defenestrator

Correction: Jill and Tilly Masterson are both killed in "Goldfinger", Paula Caplan and Fiona Volpe are both killed in "Thunderball" and Naomi and Felucca are both killed in "The Spy Who Loved Me".

Corrected entry: When Bond shoots Mr White in the leg, he drops his mobile, but it's there, so why doesn't he pick it up and call someone - an ambulance, maybe - instead of crawling in agony to his front door?

kh1616

Correction: He's crawling for cover. What good is an ambulance, or anyone else, going to do him when he's obviously being shot at right that very moment? Wasting time uselessly fiddling with his phone would have been the stupidity.

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)

Correction: The peek of blue in the corner of the described shot is consistent with the sky colour in the preceding shots of the building. It seems to be a dark sky-blue, far from the bright pure blue used for 'blue screen' shots.

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)

Correction: If you watch the blu-ray version closely you can actually see that the watch strap is metallic throughout the entire scene, it looks black because the shiny omega bracelet is reflecting the laptop/water/his leg.

Spectre

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.

SexyIrishLeprechaun

Correction: Not all nail guns have these safety features. At least in Holland these are available, and so presumably also in Venice, which is also in Europe.

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).

Correction: Actually, the flop was 9, 3, A, then the scene shows the dealer puts down a 7 on the turn, Bond checks and Dimitrios bets 5 thousand, Bond calls then the dealer throws the K out on the river, then they both shove their chips. The scene was accurate.

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.

Correction: There's nothing to indicate that those are indeed the bomb maker's papers that the guard is holding. He may have been dealing with someone else as the bomb maker approached.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Bond goes after Le Chiffre in the casino intending to stab him he first picks up just a normal table knife. When he encounters Felix on the stairs it has switched to a steak knife.

Correction: It's a steak knife with a serrated single-bevel edge. The side of the blade with the bevel and serrations is face down on the table making it appear to be a common table knife, whereas the serrations are visible while Bond has it against his wrist.

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.

Ryanbrynna

Correction: It's not a bra, it's just some support "built-in" to the dress. Many womens' garments have these.

Corrected entry: Someone with Bond's training should know that to resuscitate a drowning victim, you first have to force the water from their lungs. Second, to perform CPR properly, you must tilt the head back, or you will just fill the stomach with air.

wizard_of_gore

Correction: There is nothing in the American Red Cross CPR guidelines about forcing water from the lungs of a drowning victim. No matter what the circumstances are you check for respirations first; if they are absent then you give two deep breaths, then check for a pulse. Bond does not do a completely proper head-tilt before administering the breaths, but the guidelines also specify that you do not need to overextend (reposition) the head if you see the chest rise when giving ventillations. And minor deviations from proper CPR procedures could be caused by how distraught Bond was at the time. My job includes giving CPR instructions to people over the phone; it is much more difficult when the caller is trying to resuscitate a loved one.

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.

Correction: This is a question, not a mistake - please remember there is a separate area for addressing questions. As for Vesper "doing anything to save her boyfriend", this is never stated anywhere in the film, and it seems entirely in character for her to refuse to provide Bond with additional funds when she's convinced that he's too reckless not to lose it to Le Chiffre and give the terrorists even more money.

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.

Correction: Bond actually holds the baddie from the shoulder, rips the electric cable, and as he's about to electrocute him, he releases his hand from the baddie.

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.

BocaDavie Premium member

Correction: As you point out, villians die fast and quick deaths and there is nothing rare about it. Deaths in many Hollywood films are altered primarily for ratings. For example someone dying with blood everywhere and having it slow and painful will get a much higher rating than someone being shot with a silencer and almost no blood being spilled.

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.

Correction: The plane was not taken apart. It can be seen in nearly any recent episode of Top Gear. Its parked behind the race track.

Continuity mistake: In a scene towards the end of the movie where Bond and Vesper are lying on the beach, Bond has sand on his back through most of the scene. When they start to kiss, in the distant shot towards the end of the scene, he has no sand on his back at all. (01:57:10)

More trivia for Casino Royale

Question: Help me out if I'm wildly off: The Ugandan gangster attacks LeChiffre in his hotel, who Bond later kills. LeChiffre then continues with the game and panics when Mr. White demands the money. I was under the assumption that LeChiffre only owed money to the gangster and therefore needed to win the game to pay him back. Why does he continue with the game after the gangster is killed?

Brad Premium member

Chosen answer: Le Chiffre operates as the banker for Mr White's entire organisation. The Ugandan is only one of many individuals and groups for whom Le Chiffre provides financial services; killing him does little to solve the problem of the missing money. Plus there's the question of trust - if Le Chiffre can't keep the money safe, then Mr White's organisation have no use for him and, as we see in the movie, will readily eliminate him. Le Chiffre's desperate to recover the money to prove his trustworthiness and save his own life.
