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: 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.
Corrected entry: At the end of the boat-chase the boat of the assassin is about to hit the fence near the Millennium Dome. In a split second during a front shot you can see the fence already damaged, probably from a previous take.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Bond is in the pipe line, chasing after the runaway plutonium, the map shows Bond and the Bomb travelling east to west. When Bond stops, and the Bomb explodes it is in front of him, accelerating away from him. But when Bond helps his partner out of the pipeline, they come out of the west section of pipe. They could only do this if they were in front of the bomb when it exploded.
Corrected entry: Prior to the explosion from Bullion's case (in Valentin's Istanbul headquarters), Dr. Jones has her hair tied up in a bun, but in all scenes after the explosion it's loose, without any time for her to change it (short of the explosion untying whatever's holding her hair up without injuring her in the slightest).Shay
Corrected entry: In Goldeneye, we learn that Valentin Zukovsky was shot in the leg by Bond, and he consequently has a limp and describes himself as a cripple. In The World Is Not Enough he has a cane, but a) he walks quite ably and hardly seems to use the cane at all, and b) he considering the much more active role he plays in this movie (which is obviously the reason they "forgot" about his limp), he wouldn't have lasted five seconds as a cripple.
Corrected entry: When we see the cigar girl aiming at the MI6 building from her boat there is no sun on her. In the final shot of her firing, the boat is bathed in sunshine. (00:07:15)
Corrected entry: The skiing scene is obviously shot in Vallee Blanche and other places next to Chamonix. They would have had a really long helicopter journey to France. Also, the mountains seen during the flight are Aiguilles du Chamonix.
Corrected entry: When the inflatable ball saves Bond and Electra from the avalanche, when they climb out, what happened to their skis? (00:45:56)
Corrected entry: When Electra calls M on the videophone through her computer, M sees Electra in a white gown and her hair frazzled. But, in the next scene when we see Electra turning off her computer and getting up from her chair, she is wearing a purple outfit and her hair is neat.
Corrected entry: When Bond gets to the building in the ocean to rescue Denise Richards, she's wearing a sexy purple cocktail dress and her makeup is perfect. They weren't carrying luggage - where did all that come from? In fact, given the location shooting there are unbelievable costume changes throughout the film.
Corrected entry: In the final love scene with Christmas and Bond, there is a slight error. As M is watching the screen, she sees that the bodies go from orange to red; only then do the bodies start moving. In reality, the bodies would have moved before changing color because as all of us know, biologically, Bond would have to move into Christmas before a change in body heat.
Corrected entry: Plutonium is an extremely unstable and volatile metal. In the presence of oxygen it combusts spontaneously, giving off an extremely radioactive smoke. Breathing this smoke even in tiny quantities virtually guarantees developing a fatal lung cancer. It emits a level of alpha radiation, which is deadly without protective shielding of some sort. This type of radiation usually causes bone cancers. it will also cause hair and teeth to fall out. Throughout the movie characters handle it without any sort of precautions. Poor Bond isn't going to live long.
