The World is Not Enough

Revealing mistake: When Bond is going to the Swiss banker's flat in Bilbao at the beginning of the film, there is a scene where, in the background, you can clearly see people watching the filming. (00:01:15)

Revealing mistake: During the gun battle after Renard escapes the bunker, someone gets shot, and you see the stunt bloke dive to the floor and scream even though the gun wasn't even pointed at him or any bullets fired. He's the one standing just to the right of the jeep as we look at it.

Revealing mistake: After Bond jumps out of the window grabbing a strap, when he is hanging loose you can notice the cable holding him parallel to the body, pointing towards the sky. The strap is diagonally placed pointing towards the building.

Revealing mistake: In Kazakhstan, when Bond shoots at Renard, the bullet takes too long to go from his gun to the bullet-proof window.

Revealing mistake: After Renard has been hit with the rod at the end, he falls and as he lands the rod shakes, revealing that it is in fact light and hollow. (01:56:15)

Revealing mistake: During the pursuit scene on the Thames, there is nobody in the boat during one shot, when it breaks the fence. (00:11:55)

Revealing mistake: When James Bond is on the run from the helicopter in the caviar factory, he backs into a metal pipe, holding his Walther P99 just above his head. Yet, if you watch the pipe you can see that it is a prop, as the pipe wobbles when Bond backs into it.

Revealing mistake: When Bond is talking with Zuckovsky in the casino, you can see a television set behind them with images from a security camera. You can tell it's the same footage used in the shot before showing people in the casino, only played again on the television.

Revealing mistake: In the scene at the end when the sub explodes, you see the hull split in two and the propeller drops away. But you do not see the prop shaft.

Revealing mistake: When Bond goes skiing with Electra to check the pipe lines, in one scene you can see ski tracks in front of the pair. They could be from previous line inspections, but surely they would have been snowed over? That area doesn't look like a popular ski resort....

Revealing mistake: During the ski chase, a paratrooper pulls out a submachine gun and fires a volley of bullets at Bond. However, as these hits the ground, you can see that actually there are two parallel lines of explosions behind Bond. The submachine gun can't possibly shoot two regular lines of bullets like that. (01:37:00)

Revealing mistake: When Bond escapes the Swiss bank through the window with the very large suitcase supposedly full of money (paper), he swings it around like it's empty (which it probably was).

Revealing mistake: When Bond is traveling to meet Elektra for the first time in Baku he sees a King helicopter cutting the trees. You can see that the person inside is a dummy.

Revealing mistake: In the mountains, when the two parahawks collide, they go at a certain speed but the shot later, they are only stuck together.

Revealing mistake: Right at the beginning of the boat chase when Bond drives the boat through the waterway in MI6, before he jumps the boat into the river, there is a shot roughly from Q's POV, the boat clearly slows right down before it reaches the end. It couldn't fly as far through the air as shown.

Revealing mistake: Near the end of the movie where Renard and Bond are going at it, Bond is choking Renard and vice versa. You can clearly see Bond's thumbs aren't even touching Renard's neck.

Revealing mistake: When Bond tells Renard that Elektra is dead, in the over-the-shoulder shot of Pierce Brosnan, you can see him making faces at Robert Carlyle (just before he starts screaming). However in the next shot of Bond's face, it's as if his face hasn't changed.


Revealing mistake: During the chase in the mountains, the snow thrown up by bullet impacts is black rather than white, revealing their explosive origins.

Dr Wilson

Revealing mistake: During the action sequence on the labyrinthine docks on the Caspian Sea, one of the choppers with the rotating blades saws Bond's BMW in half. A cutaway shot reveals Bond nearby, murmuring, "Q's not gonna like this." The next shot is in back of Bond, seeing the newly split BMW fall apart, but Pierce Brosnan has been replaced with a dummy. This is most obvious during the over-the shoulder shot of the BMW falling apart, where Bond's gun is now held in front of him. Also, when the car splits in two, the dummy shakes a bit.

Revealing mistake: In the boat chase, Bond decides to dive below the barrier. It is very close to him, but takes about 5 seconds to dive. He would have hit it in about 2 seconds.
