Best Bond movie character mistakes of all time
Character mistake: Near the beginning when James Bond enters the North Korean complex, Zao is sent information to his mobile phone about James Bond being from the "MI6 Security Service". This is inaccurate information because MI6 is the Secret Intelligence Service and not the Security Service. It is MI5 which is the Security Service.
Character mistake: When Carver is to go live to the World, his assistant is counting down 5, 4, 3, 2. She does not say 1 and 'Now', as they never do, in order for her voice not to be heard on the broadcast. But if you do the counting, Carver starts before she would have reached 'Now'. Consequently there would be a risk that Carver's first words were not heard on the live broadcast. That would be very unprofessional.

Character mistake: When Bond is jumping from the dam in the opening sequence, you see him 'clip in' twice, once attaching the rope to his feet, and once attaching the rope to the dam. He is using screw-gate carabiners, large clips that have a small bevel gate on them that secure them shut. Yet Bond doesn't screw them shut - all it takes is a simple flick of the fingers and they're done. This means that they're not as safe as they should be, and could potentially open - particularly when doing something as stressful as diving off a dam. You would have thought that as Bond's parents 'had the luxury of dying in a climbing accident' as Trevelyan puts it, he would take more care over basic safety procedures when using ropes and climbing equipment.
Character mistake: At the boat where Bond talks with Colombo for the first time, Colombo has to convince Bond that Kristatos is the bad guy. Colombo takes two drinks and wants to toast with Bond. Bond will trust Colombo and says, 'Yassou' which means 'Hello' instead of what he should say, 'Jamas' which means 'Cheers'.

Character mistake: James Bond states that the man that fell in the liquid helium would raise the temperature. Since humans have a body temperature of only 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit, falling into a tank of liquid helium at -456 degrees would bring his body down to the same temperature as the surrounding helium in no more than five seconds.
Character mistake: In the pre-credits sequence, when Bond is fighting the Soviet troops who are attacking him, Bond hooks a grappling hook onto the back of a Soviet soldier who is a riding an snowmobile, which sends the soldier flying off the snowmobile and hanging over an icy ledge. The soldier then says "Pomageete! Roger Moore pomageete!" which is Russian for "Help! Roger Moore help!"
Character mistake: In the scene at Kerim Bey's office, when the bomb goes off, we see a heavy desk topple over. Bey says he was saved because he was relaxing on the couch with a girl. But he wasn't at the desk before either. He was sitting in some sort of sofa arrangement in a different corner of the room. We don't even see the desk before the bomb goes off.
