Natalya Simonova: How can you be so cold?
James Bond: It's what keeps me alive.
Natalya Simonova: No. It's what keeps you alone.
Perrier paid a fortune for their cans to be crashed through by the tank. After the filming Perrier representatives picked up every single can, crushed or intact, to prevent people getting hold of them and re-using them to sell "false" Perrier. See more...

Revealing: During the draining of the water in the dish, some shots show the water moving backwards. For instance, at a particular moment, masses of water jump UP, ark toward the opening, and fall in it. The most likely reason is that, during the filming, the special effects people took a shot of a replica of the dish FILLING with water, then edited it the other way, to show that the water was emptied from the dish.
Continuity: At the end, all the marines reveal themselves, to the surprise of Bond and the woman (fair enough). But at the same time three helicopters come in from the top of the screen, which apparently no-one had heard or seen until that second. Odd, especially since they only start making any noise when they're in shot...
Continuity: After the American agent "delivers" the Cessna to James Bond and Natalia, they make several passes over the lake in Cuba. Then the plane is hit by a rocket. Right before they crash the plane, it becomes a different plane. The original one is white and maroon. The one that crashes is white and red. It happened too fast to check the N-Number or registration, but the second plane was an earlier model as well.
Continuity: During the pursuit scene in St-Petersburg, two military trucks breaks a fence and fall in the water. The first one contains 2 passengers, but 3 are ejected from it and the second one contains 3 passengers and 2 are ejected from it. More strange, the one with 2 passenger was behind the one with 3 passengers some shots before. I don't see why they would chase between them.
Visible crew/equipment: This flub is virtually impossible to catch by the human eye - use slow-mo. When Bond jumps off the dam, they do a shot, following him along his descent down the ledge of the wall. In a shot only visible during three or four frames, but they catch a shot of the ledge before panning down, in which you can see the film crew watching on top, together with a van or two...
Continuity: Opening sequence when Bond bungees off the dam, you see him lay down the bungee cord he uses, it appears to be no more than a couple meters of cord. Seconds later there is a shot of the dam itself, panning upwards from the bottom. The dam appears to be several hundred meters high, not a chance that tiny cord is enough.
Plot hole: In Cuba, Bond and Natalia are in a plane flying over a lake, attempting to find the Goldeneye control station. The station is hidden, and the Janus Group inside obviously does not want the operation discovered until it's time to go with their plan. They are hidden so well, Bond and Natalia are about to give up. Yet, the enemy fires a rocket at the plane to shoot it down, and sends Xenia in pursuit to finish them off. This does not logically make sense, as the rocket would be a dead giveaway that the base is actually there and let's Bond know it. That, and the rocket would be seen by the US government, letting them know that Janus is there. So even if the rocket successes in killing Bond, it would give the US government a precise target and would undermine Janus' entire operation. The logical thing to have done would let Bond leave empty handed.
Continuity: When James is chasing Natalia and Ouromov through St. Petersburg in the tank, James crashes through various walls and statues, but when he is looking down at Xenia, Ouromov, and Natalia as they get on the train, the tank is wiped clean with no sign of bricks, Perrier cans, or any other debris.
