The World is Not Enough

Character mistake: Why is Electra using Windows 2000 (still in beta at the time) to survey her oil empire? (I think it's just after she's asked M to come and help her) You shouldn't use beta software for anything important....

Factual error: At the beginning of the film, with the boat chase down the River Thames, Bond manages to get from the Vauxhall HQ of MI6 to Docklands in a remarkably short time. To travel the distance in the time that it takes him you would need to be going at about 700 mph.

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

Trivia: Apparently there was a line at the end of the intro sequence which was cut from the final release - among the people turning up to rescue Bond is M, who takes one look at him and says "Well, at least the Millennium Dome has some use".

Chosen answer: We see them in the movie when Bond first arrives to meet Electra - they're used for cutting trees in a straight line. Google "helicopter tree trimmer" to see dozens of examples.
