Skyfall

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.

Razzer

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.

Razzer

Continuity mistake: The scene where 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.

Razzer

Other mistake: When Bond is being driven back to MI6, there is clear rain on the window. In the angle from above the car, there is no rain visible on the top of the car. Despite rain on the passenger window, there is no rain on the car roof for some reason.

Razzer

Continuity mistake: When the helicopter crashes into Skyfall, depending on the angle the undercarriage is down when the helicopter tilts forward, then up from behind, then down again from the front.

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

Razzer

Deliberate mistake: When Bond walks through the tube train he leaves the doors open so the cameraman can follow him. This scene was shot several times to get the front and rear shots. When filming from the front, he closes the doors behind him.

Factual error: During Bond's fight with Patrice in the Shanghai high-rise, Patrice's sniper rifle fires several times, presumably by accident. However, moments earlier, when Patrice assassinates his target in the neighboring building, the rifle is shown to be bolt-action. A bolt-action rifle can't be fired more than once without manually re-cocking the gun in order to fire the next round.

Visible crew/equipment: After Patrice jumps onto the train, Bond drives off the bridge and lands on the train and begins to fall over the side, then climbs back on. Eve then says "They're on the train." During this shot, you can see the white platform Bond was standing on to climb back onto the train.

Razzer

Factual error: It would be impossible to drive a silver Aston Martin DB5 from London to Scotland without getting splash marks on the side of the vehicle. Especially in view of the fact that the road conditions are wet by the time 007 and M reach the Scottish Highlands, but the car still looks immaculate.

Kilgore

Factual error: In Turkey the first two numbers of a vehicle licence plate belongs to a city. 34 for Istanbul for example. The motorcycle chase in the beginning of the movie takes part in Istanbul, (The Land Rover and the Audi has 34 plates) however once they come to the bridge where Bond jumps to the train, all the vehicles on the bridge (except the Land Rover) has plates that start with 01, which is the licence plate number for the city Adana, where those scenes were shot.

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.

Razzer

Continuity mistake: When Q shakes Bond's hand after meeting him, he starts smiling. Shot cuts and he isn't smiling.

Razzer

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.

Andylowry

Continuity mistake: In the courtroom shoot out scene, Bond shoots two fire extinguishers to use as a smokescreen. If you watch Eve as he steps out, she lowers her weapon dramatically at the last second. When the camera cuts to her immediately after, her gun is raised again.

Factual error: On the District line, Temple and Embankment stations do not have two platforms between each train. They actually run side by side, and not with the platforms in between the two trains.

Other mistake: In the opening scene where Moneypenny is holding the rifle, you can see the flash suppressor was installed upside down. The 'slots' are on the bottom.

Other mistake: During the chase through the London Underground station, in the shot before Silva jumps onto the escalator, a female extra can be seen looking directly into the camera.

Razzer

Factual error: In the very beginning of the film the Audi A5 is chased by the Landrover. At a point the Audi makes a right hand handbrake turn, which is impossible since the Audi has an electronic handbrake, not a manual one.

Whitehouse

Factual error: When Bond climbs up from under lift/elevator after hanging under the assassin's lift car he opens adjacent lift/elevator landing doors just by pulling them apart. This is not possible without first disengaging the door lock mechanism, which is operated when car is at that level. If this were possible anyone could push lift/elevator doors open from any level and fall down the shaft.
