Visible crew/equipment: In the scene when James Bond is trying to escape while driving his BMW from the back seat with a remote control, there is a 1-2 second shot where you can very clearly see a stunt man sitting in the front seat driving and then the shot returns to James in the back seat. (01:00:18)

Visible crew/equipment: When Q is showing the new BMW to Bond, Bond takes it for a spin via the remote. As it heads back to Bond and Q, you can see a driver as it passes the helicopter. (00:28:55)

Visible crew/equipment: James hurls a Heavy in a red jacket into a printing press; as he breaks the paper, you can just make out a black crash mat.

Visible crew/equipment: When the BMW shoots the car with its car rocket launcher, the rocket then hits the car, sending it flying back, you are able to see a set of wires leading under the car then off screen.

Visible crew/equipment: When Bond and the Chinese agent are being chased by the bad guy's helicopter across the roof tops of Shanghai, the film crew's helicopter can be seen towards the top right hand side of the screen when the camera cuts to the front view of Bond on the motorbike. The next shot of the chase is then filmed from this helicopter.

Visible crew/equipment: When Bond and Lin are being chased on the bike in Ho Chi Minh City, before they have the final encounter with the helicopter. You see a few frames of the backside scaffolding of the city street set, constructed on the back lot of Pinewood Studios. (01:23:20)

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!

Elliot Carver: According to Eastern philosophy, the body has seven different chakra points. The Energy centers, like the heart, or genitals. The purpose of these implements is to probe those organs, inflicting the maximum amount of pain whilst keeping the victim alive for as long as possible.
Mr. Stamper: Dr. Kaufman's record was fifty-two hours. I'm hoping to break it.
James Bond: I would have thought watching your TV shows was torture enough.

Trivia: Michelle Yeoh did as many of her own stunts as she was allowed to in this movie (that is her climbing around on the front of that bike). This was partly because they couldn't find a stuntwoman as small as she is.

More trivia for Tomorrow Never Dies

Question: From the way it is portrayed in the movie, it looks like Bond & Wai Lin just head straight for the stealth boat once they spot it. They come at it from the front. I don't see why they would do that. Even if the surveillance guy wasn't paying attention (there's no way Bond could've known that), shouldn't someone on the bridge be able to see the dingy approaching straight at it? It would've made more sense to me if Bond waited for the ship to pass and then come from behind or the sides.

Answer: It's getting dark by this point - Bond and Wai Lin are dressed in black in a dark coloured boat. Anyone looking out of the window would be looking down towards them - they wouldn't be able to pick them out against the sea.
