Visible crew/equipment: The shadow of the crew is visible on the captain of the St. George when he enters the boat.

Continuity mistake: Just after Loque runs over the countess in his dune buggy, Bond runs over to her, kneels beside her and takes her pulse. She blinks.

Continuity mistake: Because Ms. Moneypenny knows that Bond is having a meeting with M, she opens a drawer to use the mirror. She just wants to start to put on makeup and Bond is entering her office. In the next shot her lips a fully red.

Factual error: In the pre-credit sequence with Bond and Blofeld, the helicopter makes a steep dive, however, the sound it makes is for a fixed-wing airplane, similar to dive bombers in WW2. Helicopters make no such sound.

Continuity mistake: During the fight at the ice rink, one of the ice hockey players tries to kick Bond with his blade and makes a hole in the wall in the process. In the next shot, when another player tries to hit Bond with his ice hockey stick, the damage to the wall has suddenly disappeared.

Continuity mistake: The ski jump in Cortina d'Ampezzo is in the bottom of the valley - which can also be seen in the overhead shot from the top of the ski jump. But nevertheless Bond has a long ski ride down from the bottom of the jump. And in several shots during the chase it is clear that he is much higher in the mountains than below the city.

Revealing mistake: When Bond throws the dead pilot out of the helicopter, you can tell it's a dummy as its arms and legs bend at impossible angles.

Revealing mistake: During the fight with Bond and the ice hockey players at the ice rink, Bond climbs into the Zamboni and "hits" the last hockey player, sending him into the net with the other two players. When you look closely at the footage, it appears the hockey player literally skates head-on into the Zamboni on purpose.

Revealing mistake: At the end, where Bond receives the "Come in 007" message on his watch, one can see that the watch has been filmed separately to the wrist: the wrist moves slightly , but the watch itself remains perfectly still.

Factual error: There's no way Kristatos' thug in the diving hardsuit could have the maneuverability to get inside the wreck and move around in such close quarters. Diving hardsuits aren't made for shipwreck diving.

Continuity mistake: During the car chase in Spain, when one of the two black cars bump into Melina's 2CV, we see a close up of the driver and there no vehicles visible on the road behind him. In the next shot when the 2CV is pushed off the road, the second black car is almost directly behind him.

Revealing mistake: When Locque's Mercedes starts to slide off the cliff at the end of the car chase you can see cables holding it up.

Deliberate mistake: When Eric Kriegler shoots in the biathlon, the camera looks from behind the target, through the holes of the targets he has already hit. But in the next clip it can be seen that little flaps fall down and cover the holes when they are hit.

Continuity mistake: When Bond and Melina are being chased in Melina's car, after they roll down the hill and hit the road, the tires actually bend under the car. Then when they drive again, they are straight.

Visible crew/equipment: At the end when Max the parrot drops Bond's watch into the water you can see a piece of wire lowering it in.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Locque is kicked off the cliff by Bond in his car, it is a Mercedes-Benz S-Class, model W 116. But in the shot before, when Locque drives away from Kristatos' warehouse it is the predecessor of that model.

Revealing mistake: When "Mac" is told by the captain of St. George's to destruct the ATAC system, an explosion occurs and he gets thrown to the ground. When this happens, you can see that the man playing Mac is his stunt double.

Character mistake: When Bond contacts the Chief of Staff after identifying Locque on the Identigraph, Bond reads his bibliography to him. The first appearance of the word bibliography is misspelled "BIBLOGRAPHY", whereas the second appearance near the bottom of the screen is spelled correctly.

Continuity mistake: When Bond jumps over the two henchmen shooting at him during the ski chase, he causes one of the henchmen to fall over. As he falls over, his motorbike does too, but the bike is back upright again immediately when Kriegler skis over them.
