Deliberate mistake: This mistake/trick was revealed in the second DVD commentary on the film. When Bond is underwater in the ship with the flare, this flare does not behave realistically. If they had used real flares, it would have put too much smoke and dirt in the water and quickly made it too murky to see or film through. So the flare used was a special effects prop of a bright light with bubbles being fed through it to give a good effect, but is not how a real flare would be under water. (01:08:25)
Revealing mistake: In the scene with the helicopter chasing them down the street, apart from the fact that the rotors should catch on something and hurl the machine into a wall, when it finally hits the wall at the end, the pilot and crew quite clearly become about 4 crash-test dummies. This wouldn't be so bad if it weren't for the fact that they are unpainted and all sit in their seats looking straight ahead with their hands in their laps while they are driven into a wall. You'd think they could have at least posed the arms over their faces or SOMETHING!
Admiral Roebuck: With all due respect, M, sometimes I don't think you have the balls for this job.
M: Perhaps. But the advantage is, I don't have to think with them all the time.
Question: In the morning after Bond and Paris slept together in the hotel, Paris leaves despite protests from Bond. When Bond gets back to the hotel she is lying dead on his bed having been murdered. How did she get back there?
