The World is Not Enough

Stupidity: Not much point in having a purpose built workshop for a speedboat 4-5 floors above river level. As shown later in Spectre there were underground moorings and easy access to the Thames at river level.

Suggested correction: At the time of release of this film it's safe to assume that there might not have been easy access at river level.

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.

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.

Question: What are those blades (the ones used at the end on the caviar factory) used for in real life?

Chosen answer: We see them in the movie when Bond first arrives to meet Electra - they're used for cutting trees in a straight line. Google "helicopter tree trimmer" to see dozens of examples.
