The World is Not Enough

Continuity mistake: When Bond's in the chair having his neck broken, between two shots the handles change position. Also, at one point we hear that the woman turns the handles a bit, but in the next shot they haven't moved.

Suggested correction: The close-ups of Renard do not make it clear enough to see what Bond's expressions are.

Continuity mistake: In the warehouse sequence Bond is taking cover from gun fire and yells to Zukovsky and Christmas "Get Out!" while holding his Walther P99. A helicopter cuts though the building his in and he drops down to protect himself (he's in the same place) and he's holding another gun (possibly an UZI) Then a couple of scenes later 007 drops down on two bad guys and shoots them with his P99.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the pursuit scene, the boat of the "cigar" girl stops on the bank of the Thames in front of the Millenium Dome. But it's completely in the water in one shot when Bond's boat passes over it, and it seems to be moored. (00:12:55)

Continuity mistake: When Q shows the boat to Bond, it looks much more damaged than at the end of the pursuit scene, when it landed relatively gently in water. (00:20:35)

Dr Wilson

Continuity mistake: When Bond gets his X-ray glasses for the first time, he puts them on and looks down at R. In the next shot, his head is up again.

Continuity mistake: When they're looking at the computer model of Renard's head (just after the doctor says "medulla oblongata"), count the pings. The first two times we hear one, a slight pause, then 3 close together, with corresponding green pointers on the image, then a higher pitched one on the green box. However, the third time (after "than any normal man") there's no initial ping with pause, just the 3 close together. Then just as we're expecting the higher one we cut to a shot of M, and we hear another middle beep before the final one. The sequence starts again, we cut back to the model in the middle of it, and we get an extra beep again, plus see that the beeps are now completely out of sync with bits of the model being illuminated.

Continuity mistake: When they're loading the submarine, and Renard is being kissed, from behind his lips are pushed forward, but when we see his face he's trying to pull back.

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)

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".

More trivia for The World is Not Enough

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.
