Corrected entry: When Blofield's base is exploding, external shots are shown which blatantly show lava flowing down. This is video of a real volcano erupting.
Corrected entry: How could Blofeld have kept an efficient operation in Japan when he personally killed his own top two officers, 4 and 11, over such trivial matters as whether they succeeded in killing Bond? After all, when 4 was being killed, Bond was already in his custody, so exactly where did Osato fail? doesn't that leave a big power vaccum at the top?
Corrected entry: Bond is 'killed' in the teaser in the hide-away bed. When the local police who respond to the situation open the bed, revealing Bond's 'dead' body, one of them remarks "That's the way he would have preferred it." Clearly making reference to Bond's proclivity for sexual escapades during dangerous situations. But how could any random, local gendarme possibly know about the personal habits of such a 'secret' agent?
Corrected entry: At the end of the movie when the remaining ninjas and Bond are escaping, aren't they using the tunnel that was filled with poison gas earlier in the movie? Notice that they are all swimming with their heads above water. Shouldn't they be dead?
Corrected entry: Near the end of the movie when the Ninjas are attacking the volcano compound, one of them shoots through the wall of Blofeld's supposedly impregnable control room. Apparently the noise and smoke that was produced to shoot the scene scares the hell out of the cat in Blofeld's arms. It is hilarious to watch the poor cat try to get free and its all Blofeld can do to try and restrain the animal.
Corrected entry: Since part of the volcano's interior consists of rough and porous rock, James' suction cups wouldn't have been able to give him a secure grip all the way down as he infiltrates the volcano base.
Corrected entry: When Bond asks if anything unusual has happened on the island, Tiger says something to the effect of "Everything's just so normal. Nothing happens here". But to hollow out the crater of the volcano and build a rocket launch facility would be a major construction undertaking that would require large numbers of workers, construction material and equipment and would have taken quite a while to complete. How could the islanders not notice a construction project of that magnitude?poehitman
Corrected entry: When Bond is trapped in the airplane before Number 11 jumps out, exactly where does that wooden restraining board come from? It appears to be a solid board, and indeed it must be because it slides out entirely from one direction. It appears to be at least three feet long, and the cabin walls aren't nearly thick enough to hide it, so where does it come from?
Corrected entry: Japanese SIS identifies the island that the Ning-Po stops at is called "Matsu" and is in the direct route between Kobe and Shanghai. The actual island of Matsu is just off the coast of CHINA, northwest of the island of Taiwan. Now, even assuming that it's the actual island in the movie, Bond takes Little Nellie and says he wants to take a quick look over the island. There's no way Little Nellie makes it that far on it's on-board fuel.poehitman
Corrected entry: When Bond goes back to the control room to hit the self-destruct button, he goes in completely unarmed. Bond is supposedly the best secret agent in the world, but as he's going up the stairs, with dead bodies and weapons all around him, he doesn't pick up a weapon before going into a room where armed guards are most likely present.poehitman
Corrected entry: During one of the Ninja training sessions, a trainee smashes a melon. The goo from the melon splashes the camera lens. (01:16:40)
Corrected entry: In the car chase, just before the villain's black sedan is lifted off the road by helicopter, to be dumped into the Tokyo bay (that was before environmentalism) there's a shot from behind inside Bonds sports car. They race madly....with the speedometer needle clearly showing zero!
Corrected entry: In the scene of 11 flying Bond in the Navion single engine airplane, it doesn't make sense that Bond would get in the plane and sit in the back seat while 11 is wearing a parachute on her back and goggles on her head. Bond's not particularly observant, is he? Either that or he can't put two and two together.
Corrected entry: When Bond is being chased at the docks, he reaches the top of the stairs with the Asian girl and a man with a submachine gun starts shooting at him. Bond fires back, the man throws his arms up in the air and screams. In the very next shot with the camera looking up, a second gunshot is heard and he comes flying over the edge. Given that the first gunshot caused a serious injury, how does he suddenly have the strength to hurl himself over the edge (the bullet would not have enough momentum to do it for him)?Tobin OReilly
