Diamonds Are Forever picture

Continuity mistake: When Bond escapes from the Willard Whyte facility in the desert in the moon buggy, a car that is chasing him goes over a ridge and turns on its side as the buggy speeds by. A wheel rolls back into the shot, all on its own. It doesn't belong to the car, or the three three wheelers also chasing, but looks like it belongs to the buggy, which has its full compliment of wheels all through the scene.

Tomorrow Never Dies picture

Continuity mistake: When the stealth ship tries to escape the English and Chinese navies, they say it's going 48 knots. But when we see it 'speeding' away, you can see by its wake that it is cruising very slowly. Definitely nowhere near 48 knots.

The Man with the Golden Gun picture

Continuity mistake: During the chase scene with the police, Bond swerves past a driver in a dark green 1956 Plymouth Savoy. As the police cars pass the Plymouth, the scene cuts to an inside shot of the car with the driver yelling, then the driver loses control of the car and rolls it over. The car that crashes is a green 1955 Chevrolet 210 series, not the 1956 Plymouth.

Licence to Kill picture

A View to a Kill picture

Continuity mistake: When Zorin is trying to break into the shed where Bond is, just after he's worked out what time high tide is, the door rattles, dropping a hard hat onto the ground, but leaving a red/yellow light/reflector hanging, quite securely. The door lock is also pointing down and right. A couple of shots later, without the door being rattled forcibly again, there's nothing hanging behind it, and the door lock is pointing right. (01:42:15)
