Best Bond movie other mistakes of all time

Die Another Day picture

Other mistake: During the final Ice Palace action sequence, as Bond is getting into his Aston Martin just prior to his 'automotive duel', he crouches beside the invisible car in order to minimize himself as a target as he tried to locate the handle to open the door. The explanation given by "Q" was that tiny cameras on each side projects what's on the other side. Despite crouching behind his car, he still would have been visible on the other side.

Quantum of Solace picture

Other mistake: Cars in Bolivia are required to carry both front and rear registration plates. In the movie hardly any of the cars shown have one.

Thunderball picture

Other mistake: When the Disco Volante separates to escape the cruisers firing on it, the "cocoon" is seen facing the pursuing ships stern first. When the shot changes to show the gunners firing on the ships the back half of the "cocoon" has turned completely around; the gunners are firing from the separated mid section of the Volante and the stern of the "cocoon" is now facing away from the cruisers, making it easy to see which parts of the scene were filmed live and which were done in the studio.

Dr. No picture

Other mistake: After the decontamination chamber scene, Bond and Honey drink a cup of tea. Honey very quickly passes out due to the tea being laced with some type of sleep inducing drug. However, as Bond throws his cup in anger, Honey flinches very hard. Surprising considering how quickly she passed out after drinking the tea.

You Only Live Twice picture

Other mistake: When James Bond is in Tanaka's underground train enjoying the sake wine. One servant enters saying that the photograph is ready for viewing. This servant then walks to the door, which is on the left-hand side of the carriage. After going through the door, we can see the servant taking a left turn, but where to? Outside the moving train?

Goldfinger picture

Other mistake: The crushed 'cube' car is not the whole Lincoln; that kind of small cube is produced in junkyards from the body only, without wheels, drive train, etc.

A View to a Kill picture

Other mistake: Zorin supposedly falls from the top of a pillar of the Golden Gate Bridge, however 2 seconds after falling he is below the road. This is not possible as the drop is too great. Even taking into account of Zorin accelerating.

Casino Royale picture

Other mistake: During the chase with the fuel truck at the Miami airport, Bond depresses the brakes, which apparently aren't working, and the truck rolls on. Two problems: first, after almost hitting the plane and sliding sideways, the brakes skid to a halt and you can hear air discharging from the brake system. Which brings up the second problem: since the truck is air brake equipped, there is no way it would have continued rolling if the brakes were malfunctioning. Part of the air brake system on all trucks since 1974, have a safety feature which "dynamite" the brakes if there is no air pressure in the system. This locks up the brakes with the spring brake system, making the truck stop. The truck was newer than 1974, meaning it would have had the CVSS safety braking system from the manufacturer, and would have skidded to a stop if there was no air in the system.

Other mistake: In the scene when the helicopters arrive over the research center, look at the heli in the bottom right - it just fades out, while one on the left materialises, and the one in the middle changes position. Notice that after all the helicopters have changed place, you can see the helicopter that faded out appear on the helipad

Octopussy picture

Other mistake: When Bond drives into the train tunnel, below the train cart with the jewelry, we see that welding is going on in the other train cart. But that is before the bomb is placed in the hole below the cannon. There is no sign of weldings, and no sign of welding equipment once we get inside that cart.

Spectre picture

Other mistake: When Bond enters the ruins of the old MI6 building, he encounters the plaque that lists all of those that gave their lives in service of MI6. In Skyfall, M mentioned this plaque, and mentioned that Silva's (the antagonist of Skyfall) name was Tiago Rodriguez, and that his name is on that plaque, and that she'd have it struck from the plaque. However, she never had the chance to do so within the timeline of the film (almost immediately after she said this, Silva escaped and tried to kill her at the government hearing, after which she escaped with Bond to Scotland, and died there). His name, however, is absent from the plaque, and there isn't even a gap for where his name might have been even if she *had* had the chance to have it removed.

The Living Daylights picture

Other mistake: When James is on the top of the jeep, there is a brief shot of it from behind as they go past an armed soldier. Watch carefully, the jeep goes over a few bumps and Bond on top seems to jump all over the place in a very unnatural way. This is because the footage has been sped up to make the Jeep appear to be going faster.

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.

Live and Let Die picture

Other mistake: When the camera does a close up shot of Bond in the sky in the Microlight, the fabric is far too loose for it to actually be in the sky. The fabric would be taut as the air flows over it.

The Spy Who Loved Me picture

Other mistake: As Bond enters the night club in Egypt, the camera pans right to reveal two extras who appear to be waiting for their cue to start walking, but obviously miss this cue as they don't actually start walking until the camera is on them.

00:32:48

The Man with the Golden Gun picture

Other mistake: At the end when Bond returns to the bedroom after the glass bottle fight with Nik Nak he says "hope you got all the glass out of the bed" but he just walked across the room in bare feet without a care in the world, which was completely covered in broken glass. Goodnight didn't have enough time to clean this up aswell in the time given.

Moonraker picture

Other mistake: When James enters and exits the laboratory, the door has a sign on it that warns for radioactive materials. The laboratory actually contains a biological weapon. Therefore the door should be marked with a bio-hazard symbol.

00:41:00 - 00:42:00

For Your Eyes Only picture

Other mistake: When Bond is being chased on the bobsled track, just before he escapes the track.there is a shot of Eric Kriegler taking one last shot at him. In this shot however, Kriegler's bike appears to be in an open area and certainly not on a bobsled track. In fact it looks like a disused shot from when the chase started.

Goldeneye picture

Other mistake: When the Goldeneye is first fired, watch as the planes collide and then explode, one at a time. The plane that blows up closest to the camera is the exact same explosion, debris and all, that occurs when the second satellite is destroyed at the end of the film in space.

00:39:00 - 01:57:00

Tomorrow Never Dies picture

Other mistake: When Carver is typing Bond's obituary on the big screen, he hits many more keys than would be necessary to write the end of the sentence.

The World is Not Enough picture

Other mistake: When Bond is about to jump from the banker's window, he is shown tying a knot on the strap, but when he gets to the street, he only releases the strap and walks away.

Suggested correction: He may have tied a quick release not, which by sliding his hand back up would have released the cable.

Bond does not tie a quick release knot. He ties a traditional overhand knot (it's shown in quite some detail), which cannot be easily removed. Therefore the original entry still stands.

Other mistake: When Loti is shot three times, all three bullet holes appear on her at the same time.
