Corrected entry: Why are Stamper's people filming the murders of the surviving sailors? If that footage is released, it would be strange, because the Chinese would of course never film killing British sailors. Furthermore the Chinese were only present in planes, and Carver is trying to make it look like it was the planes that sank the ship and killed the crew. How would the Chinese film the killing from planes?Jacob La Cour
Corrected entry: Stamper's men do their best to do damage to Bond's BMW in the parking garage using hammers and gunfire, but nothing happens. Later, in the car chase, the windows are smashed by bullets. So why change the windows from bulletproof to destructible? It can't have to do something with Bond's security system since it would be illogical that the car is indestructible with engines off but the driver can be shot sitting in the car.
Corrected entry: In the opening scene it is discussed whether the soviet nuclear torpedoes will explode when hit by the cruise missile. One of the officers says it might. But nuclear bombs can't go off unless the actual trigger mechanism is activated. They do not contain powder or dynamite or anything which can explode when heated.Jacob La Cour
Corrected entry: In the beginning of the movie, when the cruise missile is fired against the "terrorist marketplace," that missile cannot be ordered to self-destruct because it is out of range. But as a tomahawk cruise missile can only fly 880 km/h it can't at that time be more than 30 km away. That can not possibly be out of range.Jacob La Cour
Corrected entry: Wai-Lin passes Bond the 'detonators' for the mines they planted on the stealth ship to destroy it; but the mines they planted were timed mines, not remote mines, and Carver had already sent his men to have them removed anyway.
Corrected entry: Towards the end, Bond fires with a silencer but the shot is much louder than it should.
Corrected entry: Bond is shown meeting his American colleague at a US Air Force base in the 'South China Sea.' In actual fact, the base you see in the background is RAF Lakenheath, in Suffolk, England, as shown by the 'LN' tailcodes on the F-15s.
Corrected entry: In the beginning of the movie, when the cruise missile is fired against the "terrorist marketplace," that missile cannot be ordered to self-destruct (by the famous "red button") because it is out of range. However, the on-board camera of the missile seems to be still within range, because it continues to transmit "live coverage" from its flight, which can be received and displayed in acceptable quality at the command post.
Corrected entry: In the opening scene when Bond is flying the jet and the guy in the back is choking him with the garroting wire, when Bond ejects the guy the wire is still wrapped around his neck, and as the other pilot was holding the wire pretty tight, surely the force of the upward motion combined with the tightness of the wire would rip Bond's head clean off, resulting in no more 007.
Corrected entry: Bond and Wai Lin should have had one hell of a bend or an embolism when they popped up out of the water after diving on the Devonshire. Not only did they unnecessarily ditch their diving gear (they could have just pushed the tanks in front of them to get up that pipe) but they had an uncontrolled ascent from well over 30 metres depth. Yet they show no signs of any decompression illnesses and carry on as normal when they reach the surface. Impossible.
Corrected entry: When preparing for the HALO jump, Bond is told that there is a danger of him getting tangled in his parachute and drowning when he hits the water. This is extremely unlikely since he is already breathing from the cylinders on his back via regulator which is firmly attached to his face. There's no way the parachute or any of the cords would be able to constrict the HP air hoses on the diving gear.
Corrected entry: Right at the end of the film M is told that "Carver went down with the ship" and that Bond got out alive, M dictates a short statement to Moneypenny. After this, in the next scene, the British fleet is looking for Bond and Wei Lin.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Carver dies, why would the designer of the stealth boat make it possible for the drill to come all the way into the control room?
Corrected entry: The officer who says "Sound the general alarm" right at the beginning of the film on HMS Devonshire is wearing a badge of the rank Lieutenant Commander when he is announcing that the MIGs are flying over. A second later when he says "officer of the watch, maximum speed" his rank has changed to Commander. (00:12:10)carvell
