Skyfall

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.

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.

Plot hole: When Bond climbs out of the lift he has been hanging onto underneath, how does he know the villain went right and to go that way? Yes, the lights come on automatically when someone walks past them, but Bond was climbing up and out of a lift. By the time he gets to the hall, all the lights are out.

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.

Skyfall mistake picture

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).

Other mistake: After Bond has done an endurance test, he winces when he takes off his T-shirt and rubs his right shoulder, but he was shot in the left shoulder.

Factual error: Both tube stations feature yellow walls and signs of the Circle line, but Bond is travelling on the district line, meaning they should be green (or green and yellow).

Factual error: When Patrice is going up the elevator in Shanghai, there is a shot of him taking the suppressor off his pistol. But once it's off you can see that the pistol barrel isn't threaded, which means that it couldn't take a suppressor in the first place.

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 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.

Visible crew/equipment: When 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'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.

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 to 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.
