A View to a Kill

Factual error: When Bond crashes the snowmobile he ends up in a ditch to escape - he uses the front ski, but when he knocks the two soldiers over he is skiing uphill - no way to manage this from a standing start in a ditch.

Factual error: When Zorin blows the explosives on the train in the mine tunnel, the tunnel collapses, letting the water from San Andreas Lake in. However that would not have generated a huge water column on the surface of the lake. That could only happen with a bomb in the water, not deep below the lake bed.

Factual error: Zorin throws a 2 liter bottle of gasoline on the elevator in which Bond and Stacy are trapped. The fire from gasoline is nowhere near hot enough to melt a steel elevator cable.

Factual error: Bond and Stacy jump across the 3rd street bridge in the firetruck in the dead of night. When they arrive at Main Strike Mine it is as if they have been driving for a long time. However it is clear that they are close to town - and San Andreas Lake is only 12 miles south of the 3rd street bridge.

Factual error: May Day eludes Bond by executing a base jump from the top of the Eiffel tower. Bond then chases her for several minutes before she finally lands on the boat on the Seine river. The problem is that a base jumper from 300 metres (the height of the Eiffel tower) will only take about 30 seconds to reach the ground. Bond would not even have had the time to descend from the tower in the elevator before she would have landed.

Factual error: It would have been impossible for Zorin's airship to be inflated at the speed the film depicts. Nothing could inflate it that fast.

Mistakes

When Scarpine knocks out Bond, he pushes him into the back of the Rolls Royce and he lies on his back unconscious next to Tibbett. However, when Zorin and May Day drive the Rolls Royce to the river, the 'unconscious' Bond has now managed to sit himself up on his seat.

Trivia

The disclaimer, "Neither the name Zorin nor any other name or character in this film is meant to portray a real company or actual person" was added after the producers discovered a real company known as Zoran Ladicorbic Ltd, whose industry was fashion design. This is the first Bond film to begin with a disclaimer.
