Corrected entry: When the baddies are trying to break into the BMW in the hotel car park, sledgehammers are used to try and break the windscreen but they can't do it. Then a machine gun is tried on the bodywork but makes no impact. When Bond is driving it machine gun fire shatters the windscreen as if it is a normal one.
Corrected entry: When Bond goes for the missile in the final showdown, a guard comes down from a catwalk, and Bond shoots him using his silenced Walther. However, despite the silencer, the gunshots can be heard , and it is not that the silencer seems to have been worn down, which would have made the gunshots audible.
Corrected entry: Carver gives off the impression that he is a very intelligent man, (as most megalomaniacs do), yes he is not smart enough to run out of the way when a huge drill is coming towards him. Bond punches him and leaves him to die, yet theres nothing stopping him from taking 2 steps to the right and avoiding the drill, which is several feet in front of him when Bond leaves. He just stands there and screams like a child, letting it kill him.Padzter
Corrected entry: In the scene with the Chinese agent at her apartment where she has all the gadgets and weapons, he needs her to type on the computer keyboard because he implies that he does not know Chinese. However, in one of the earliest Bond movies, he asserts that he studied and commanded the Chinese language at Oxford University. There are two variations in the Chinese written language, but every literate person is expected to know both.
Corrected entry: In the opening scene with the MiGs harassing the frigate, the stealth ship closes in. The stealth would be clearly visible from the frigate, yet no lookout announces its presence to the bridge. Even with modern defences/radar, lookouts are required.
Corrected entry: How could a false GPS signal go unnoticed in the area of some of the world's busiest shipping lanes? Are we to believe that that one British ship had the only GPS receiver within range of that satellite?
Corrected entry: This isn't really a mistake, but why does Bond take a silencer equipped pistol if he is going to clobber the first guard he meets, steal his machine gun and start a fire fight with it? Isn't half the point of espionage to get out without the bad guys knowing you were there?
Corrected entry: There is a scene where the Chinese agent and James jump down from a building while they are handcuffed. However when they break through the glass, she goes through one pane, and he through another, with a bar in between them. The bar never appears to be broken.
Corrected entry: In the sequence with the Chinese MiGs confronting the British ship for being off position and in Chinese territory, how come the Chinese planes don't also think they're in international waters, like the ship does? Surely the Chinese don't have their own independent GPS system to locate their planes? If the ship is out of position, then the planes should be similarly out of position, thus ruining the story line.
Corrected entry: When they jump out of the window, Bond's left hand is cuffed to her right hand. In the bike ride afterwards it's his right hand cuffed to her left hand.
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: 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: 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.
