22 mistakes

New this month Other mistake: During the plane chase near the end the cars go off to Bond's left, then he has to avoid the trees and turns left himself, then we see the cars are way over to his right and the trees have disappeared. The cars have no time to get that far over to the right - Bond should have seen them when he turned left himself.

Factual error: The 15 bus in London does not go over Westminster Bridge.

Factual error: The winter car chase in Austria shows the Range Rover's license plate "IL 25768H" which stands for "Innsbruck Land" in the province of Tyrol, but the flag in the middle of the plate belongs to the province of Vienna. It should show the Tyrolean eagle. In addition it contains too many characters.

Continuity mistake: In the plane chase scene, when the plane hits the car, one of the wheels comes off. In the next view, all the landing gear is intact.

Continuity mistake: During the plane/car chase scene the plane rams the back of the range rover and we see the nose crumple as it should. In all the shots after this the nose is perfect, but the back of the car is still smashed.

Continuity mistake: During the train ride in the desert Dr. Swan has an extreme red lip-gloss when she enters the scene. In the next sequence, she appears, in the storage car, the lip-gloss is gone.

Plot hole: There's no good reason for Hinx to attack Bond on the train. Blofield was expecting him to turn up at the crater, that's why he sent the car to pick them up.

Factual error: M drives a 2006 Jaguar XJ, which is rammed sideways into a concrete wall by a black pickup truck. Such impacts would fire both thorax and curtain airbags on both sides of the car; these would be visible in the wreck afterwards, as limp sheets of cloth dangling down the sides of the seats and door, respectively. Without such protection, M and Bond would be severely concussed, and unable to operate. There are no bags.

Other mistake: When Bond and Dr. Swann make out on the train there are lights "flashing" in the room as if the train is passing streetlights. But they are traveling in the desert with no external lighting.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Hinx appears in the dining car on the train, the rest of the passengers in that car immediately disappear. Also the barman when they enter that part of the train and the kitchen staff too.

Factual error: When Bond's plane crashes head on into the Range Rover Sport, Hinx smashes through the windscreen, which shatters into small granules of glass, and lands on the bonnet. This would be quite realistic in the 1960's, but modern cars have laminated windscreens, seat belts, and large passenger airbags. Even if he undid his seat belt to shoot at Bond, or didn't wear it in the first place, the other two safety features would have kept him inside the vehicle. Not quite so dramatic, of course.

Continuity mistake: At the funeral in Rome the bars of sunlight on the wall behind Monica Bellucci change length through the conversation. The time of day for each shot must have varied quite considerably.

Other mistake: When flying the grey Hughes 500 helicopter off the crater, the pilot sits on the right side, but in a Hughes 500 the pilot always sits on the left side.

Add time

Other mistake: The sealed off room in the L'American hotel is a fantasy. For one, a maid or the owners should spot that a room is missing from their own hotel. Secondly, we know that Mr. White visited frequently, and as recently as the events in Casino Royale as evidenced by Vesper Lynd's interrogation tape. Whilst it's conceivable he was able to secure the same room every year, that he was able to replaster and repaint the wall as well stretches belief.

Factual error: The Aston Martin DB10 does not show a front licence plate, but it is required by law to show one at the front and back of the car in England and Europe.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Hinx smashes Sr. Guerra's head against the table, it falls on some papers. When the angle changes they're gone.

Add time

Sacha

Continuity mistake: Bond leaves M's offices, walks through the patio, and crosses a rounded pattern on the center. In the close-up, he's several meters behind, walking by the pattern again.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: When M scolds Bond about the Mexico incident, the position of the newspapers on the table changes between shots.

Add time

Sacha

Continuity mistake: At the start of the car/plane chase the road is completely wet. After the cars exit the tunnel the road is bone dry. When the cars turn off the road into the trees the road is completely wet again.

Add time

Factual error: When M asks Q for Bond's location - and is told he's in Chelsea - the film gives a lat/long that professes to be Austria but is actually in the middle of the ocean.
