The World is Not Enough

Audio problem: When Bond is sliding on the chains after Renard has activated the bomb at the test site he shouts, "Slam the door. Close it." The second part of what he says doesn't quite match his mouth's movements. (01:04:20)

Audio problem: When Bond arrives at the King Industries place where he meets Elektra King, watch the man he talks to when he gets out of his car. It is painfully obvious that the man's mouth is not in sync with what he is saying. Even worse, the voice is not even his. It is slightly higher-pitched than the man's real voice when he finally talks right.

Audio problem: The first line the banker says does not match his mouth.

Audio problem: In the scene where Reynard and his men are stealing the warhead, Bond jumps and dives through some blast doors as they are closing. While flying though the air, it is seen that he fires a shot. However, you never hear the blast. The flash of the barrel is easily seen, and it is obvious that he is not using a silencer from previous moments of that scene. He shoots, but you don't hear it.

Audio problem: In the village in Azerbaijan, Bond tells Elektra she might be in danger and she laughs, telling him "I have something I want to show you" as she walks away in a long-shot. It's obvious this line was dubbed in during post-production - there's a very sudden, very noticeable drop in background noise and her mouth (although it's hard to tell from a distance) doesn't seem to move with the words.

Continuity mistake: When James is chasing the other boat in the beginning, he fires the top torpedo first. Then when they show him fire the second torpedo, the bottom hole is empty, and he fires the same torpedo (the one on top) again... (00:12:35)

James Bond: Construction isn't exactly my speciality.
M: Quite the opposite, in fact.

Trivia: In the opening sequence with the speed boat jetting through the boat house and over the road was filmed in Wapping, East London. It took a week to film that one sequence as I saw them doing it. Also, for the matter of continuity, when the boat goes across the road, it goes into some sort of alley with an arch above it; in reality it's actually a Group 4 building on the other side of that road.

Question: Why does that woman commit suicide at the beginning? Who is it she is scared of and why?

Answer: She's afraid of Renard. She's apparently of the opinion that, if she allowed herself to be captured, that he would still be able to get to her regardless and would undoubtedly be deeply unhappy that she had allowed herself to be caught. She apparently feels that suicide is a preferable option to whatever he might do to her.
