Audio problem: When Bond and Honey are on the beach the hoods of Dr No come by boat. On the boat there is a guy shouting through a megaphone. As they sail away again the man waves the megaphone to his comrades and says "Full Speed Ahead". Yet his voice sounds identical to when he was speaking through the megaphone, though he isn't holding it to his mouth anymore. (01:04:00)
Audio problem: When Bond arrives at the King Industries place where he meets Elektra King, watch the man he talks to when he gets out of his car. It is painfully obvious that the man's mouth is not in sync with what he is saying. Even worse, the voice is not even his. It is slightly higher-pitched than the man's real voice when he finally talks right.
Audio problem: In the volcano's control room, there is a husky guy in red uniform whose only purpose is to open and close the crater. Every time he opens or closes the crater he says with a deep voice, "opening crater, closing crater." When Bond kills him with the rocket cigarette to open the crater and let the ninjas in, and the guards have subdued Bond, the guard in white uniform who closes the crater says, "closing crater," and you can hear that it's the dead husky guy's voice.
Audio problem: In the scene in the shower when Vesper says that she feels she has blood on her hands that won't come off, her mouth says "hold me" but she actually says something different. Also she says "please" but nothing is heard.
Audio problem: After Bond sets the timer on the bomb at the end, the ticks don't add up. There's a definite tick each second, and you can count 12 of them after he starts it, then we cut back to the bomb and only 7 seconds have passed. (As a vague trivia aside, coincidence though it is, on the UK DVD he pulls the pin out at the DVD second timer ticks onto "07").Jon Sandys
Audio problem: The voice of Lt. Hip, Bond's assistant in Asia (played by Soon-Tek Oh) changes during the film, usually depending on whether it's an inside or outside scene. In all the outside scenes, his voice is much higher and shriller, so it was probably dubbed by a different actor.
Audio problem: While Bond is wrestling with the pilot inside the small plane at the beginning, he leans out of the door and shoots a guard on a bike. However, the actual gunshot is heard before he even points his gun. (00:07:30)
Audio problem: In the scene where James Bond and Wai Lin are introduced to Mr. Carver and Mr. Stamper, Carver says that when Stamper removes Bond's heart, " there should be just enough time for him to watch it stop beating". While saying this, he turns to walk towards his desk and his lips don't move at all. His quote was obviously added in post-production.Goldie97
