Corrected entry: In the casino, Bond disables and disarms the guy who attacks him. Problem is, the guy has another gun on him, which Bond (and the audience) saw earlier when he looked at the guy with his x-ray glasses. Where did it disappear to? Or did Bond forget about it?
Corrected entry: When Bond and Denise Richard's character are on the rig in the pipeline, they are travelling at 70 mph. When they jump off the rig into the pipe, they roll head-over-heels; however, doing that at 70 mph would certainly break your neck. You'd have to roll on your side to stand a chance of survival.
Corrected entry: Submarines would have absolutely no reason to maintain a fuel rod making shop on board, nor is there any way of changing fuel rods without the services of a dry-dock.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Bond and Christmas Jones jump out of the pipeline after the bomb has gone off, Bond asks Christmas "What are you doing here in Kazakhstan?" But as we have seen earlier in the film (on Elecktra's map) the King Pipeline goes from Baku through Azerbaijan to the Bosphorous. He should say "What are you doing here in Azerbaijan?"
Corrected entry: When Bond is being chased by the parahawks in the mountains, it is beautiful and sunny in one shot and then it shows a quick shot of rain, then cuts back to sunny.
Corrected entry: In the beginning when King's money explodes, it blows a hole through the wall. This is impossible because the walls in the M16 building (Vauxhaull) are "bombproof" and wouldn't be destroyed by such an explosion.
Corrected entry: When Bond begins the boat chase, they are travelling east to west along the Thames (evident from the placement of the Houses of Parliament). However, Bond travels west to east along the roads to reach the Dome (you can see this on his radar).
Corrected entry: If the fertiliser that was on King's money made Bond's ice cubes foam was on Bond's fingers, and therefore on the outside of the ice cubes, why didn't they start foaming immediately? In the first shot of his drink there is no (or only very little) foaming, whereas it foams a lot more when he is about to drink.Jacob La Cour
Corrected entry: In the beginning where Bond detonates the stun grenade in his gun and he's got the Swiss banker, how did he not see the woman throw the knife into the man's neck? Even if she went to the door, Bond should have been suspicious that she was trying to get away. And in the next shot where the camera shows the actual knife, it looks like the handle is the only thing sticking out. Either A: The woman has a strong arm, so the knife point would be pointing out of the front of the banker's neck anyway, or B: She was at close range, so Bond should have plainly saw her take out the knife and done something about it.
Corrected entry: During the boat chase at the beginning, Bond's special boat is seen to have a feature that allows it to dip down and under the surface of the water, effectively turning it into a short-duration submarine. Unfortunately, the designers of the boat failed to equip it with any kind of sealed cockpit for the operator. What could possibly be the advantage of an open-cockpit boat that can also completely submerge? The driver could not effectively see to operate the controls, nor could he hold his breath long enough to travel any reasonable distance. Additionally, at any speed above "extremely slow", the force of the water rushing by the driver's face and body would be quite painful indeed! And it would be impossible to quickly drain the water out of the hull to allow it to float on top of the surface again. About the only useful purpose this function would serve is conveniently exactly what happened in the movie. What an amazing bit of foresight on behalf of Q-Branch.
Corrected entry: When Bond fell from the balloon, he landed on his right side. Furthermore, he stopped his fall from the dome by grabbing a wire with his right hand, forcing the arm to be yanked upward. So why is his left arm the one in a sling?
Corrected entry: On the subject of the X-ray specs, think back to when Bond first tries them on, before we know what they are. He puts them on (with Q and R), and seems to take a good look at John Cleese before he gives them back. Seemed innocent enough at the time, but what was he REALLY looking at? John Cleese often did sketches for Monty Python's flying circus where he had lingerie on under his clothes...
Corrected entry: On the special edition DVD of the movie as soon as James puts on the sun glasses in the casino press play or pause and it will take you to a little behind the scene footage on how they shot the x-ray vision scene.
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.Craz
