Skyfall mistake picture

Continuity mistake: While talking with Severine in the casino bar, Bond gets his martini in a frozen glass. He picks it up, the camera's point of view changes, and the glass is instantly completely unfrozen.

New this month 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.

New this month Factual error: Bond sees Silva in a carriage with a number ending in 24. However, all carriages end in 69.

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.

Audio problem: At the casino bar, Bond is talking to Severine. The camera angle switches behind Bond and he says "I'm guessing he was your way out" but his mouth doesn't move. The angle switches to facing Bond and you can see the side of his face move on his next line.

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 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 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: 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.

Revealing mistake: When the train plummets into the basement, the windows never seem to smash or the tiniest bit crack and the paint on the train never seems to scratch the slightest bit whatsoever.

Visible crew/equipment: In the Shanghai hotel, Patrice goes into a lift and Bond jumps onto the side of it. Whilst the lift is rising, Patrice looks outside of the lift. The shot cuts to an exterior shot of the lift. When it cuts the exterior shot, for just the first few frames a camera can be seen attached to the lift, used to film the shots of Bond.

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 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: 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.

Revealing mistake: Bond turns the steering wheel of the jeep and drives it into Patrice's car. There is a shot from the side of Patrice's car which zooms in on the car. In this shot, we can see the car is already damaged despite it not being hit yet.

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 is chasing Patrice on the motorbike, Patrice drives past a red van and a white van. It becomes a green van an instant frame later.

Continuity mistake: When Bond enters the London Underground station, a ginger man is visible behind him. Shot cuts and he is instantly nowhere to be seen. Not even seen in the following shot where the camera is in front of Bond.

Visible crew/equipment: The scene where Q meets Bond. When Q turns his head to Bond, he shakes Bond's hand and says "007". A reflector screen is reflected in his glasses when this happens.

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).
