Skyfall

Continuity mistake: Bond and Silva are in a train with a number beginning in 96 and ending in 69 (96269, 96469 etc) However, near the end of this scene, the carriages have now become 96424 and 96224.

Continuity mistake: In the London Underground station, Silva walks down a flight of stairs. On the left side of the stairs are two men. In the next shot, it's only one (totally different) man.

Continuity mistake: When Silva and Bond jump onto the sides of the escalators, there is a sign at the top. Whilst they are sliding down the escalator, the sign at the top is no longer there.

Continuity mistake: At the Shanghai Casino, Bond puts the very expensive chip on the bench between him and the cashier, who doesn't touch it, but leaves it behind as she gets her boss and the suitcase that holds a lot of money. As Bond walks away, it is gone.

Continuity mistake: When Bond is on the train, before he gets into the backhoe, the number of people and cars on the street keep changing. Even if the train moved forward, the people/cars seen in the next shot weren't seen in the previous shots.

Continuity mistake: When Bond is stalking Patrice before he kills the mark, 007 is not wearing gloves. Later, when he is seen holding Patrice before his fall, he is wearing black gloves.

Continuity mistake: When Silva gets out of the helicopter at Skyfall, the sky is approaching dark (7 o'clock to 8 o'clock sky). After throwing the grenades in the house and Silva says "Everyone listen to me! Don't you dare touch her, she's mine!" about 50 seconds later, it is suddenly pitch black (11 o'clock to midnight sky).

Continuity mistake: When M and Tanner are driving back to MI6, they are stopped. A policeman walks up to the car. He is about a foot away from the car at the end of the shot, but the policeman is several meters away when M steps out of the car.

Continuity mistake: When Bond leaves the Istanbul hotel, there is an old guy visible to left side of the door walking on the sidewalk. Shot cuts and there's suddenly no sign of that old guy.

Continuity mistake: When Bond runs out of the London Underground Station, he is covered in dust. The dust is still there when he runs into the Houses of Parliament and still there when he drives off with M. Yet the dust has disappeared when Bond and M find the Aston Martin. There was no time to clean up the dust since he was driving.

Continuity mistake: When Silva's henchmen arrive at Skyfall, the Aston Martin is visible on the left side of the wall around the house. When Silva commands the Aston Martin to be shot at later, it has moved to the right side of the wall around the house without any time to move it.

Continuity mistake: When Bond and Patrice begin fighting on the train, Patrice picks up a piece of chain. The wide shot (two shots previously) shows no sign of the chain at all.

Continuity mistake: When Bond returns to MI6, when Bond stops exercising and Tanner leaves the room, Bond has both his arms against the weights. In the next shot, one of his arms is against the weights whilst his other shoulder is now against the other side of the weights.

Continuity mistake: In the museum, Bond is sitting down and Q sits next to him. Note part of Bond's coat goes over the edge of the seat. Where in the next shot, that part of the coat over the edge is now back on the seat.

Continuity mistake: Whilst Bond and Eve are in the Macau hotel, Bond's bullet wound noticeably alternates in size and shape throughout the scene.

Continuity mistake: Whilst Bond and Eve are chasing Patrice in the jeep, Eve smashes one of the wing mirrors and she then says, "Wasn't using that one either". After this line, the expression on her face changes between cuts.

Continuity mistake: In a hotel room at the start, Bond finds Ronson bleeding. Note the amount of blood on his chin coming from his mouth. In the shot where Bond opens Ronsons's jacket partway to see the blood, there are a bit of dripping blood going down his chin. In the shot where Bond leaves the room, there is suddenly a huge blob of blood on the left side of the Ronson's lips that wasn't there before.

Continuity mistake: When Silva is about to slide down the escalator, Bond runs past the same blonde woman twice between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Bond has begun searching the train for the villain, a blonde passenger's face is clearly shown on the right hand side of the screen. About a minute later, the same extra is waiting to board the same train at the next station.

Continuity mistake: Just after Bond has lost track of Silva in the London Underground station, the scene cuts to M's parliament meeting. At this time, the time on M's watch reads 3:00. Yet when Bond catches up with Silva in the basement of the London Underground station, the time on Bond's watch reads 4:55. Far too long to have passed given the events seen and distances travelled.
