Continuity mistake: Just after Bond's BMW is sawn in half by the chopper, he says "Q's not gonna like this." In the close-up of him saying this, his hands (holding a gun) are not held up in front of his face. In the very next shot, viewed from behind, his hands are held high up and pointing towards the helicopter overhead. (01:32:02)

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.
