Skyfall
Skyfall mistake picture

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Factual error: In Turkey the first two numbers of a vehicle licence plate belong to a city. Number 34, for example, is for Istanbul. The motorcycle chase in the beginning of the movie takes part in Istanbul (both the Land Rover and the Audi have "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) have plates starting with "01", which is the licence plate number for the city of Adana, where those scenes were shot.

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.

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.

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: 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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
