Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the film when the ninjas are coming down the ropes to storm the volcano base, you can clearly see one coming down who has bullet holes riddled in his back - but is still alive.
Factual error: When 007 is briefed inside the submarine, there would be no space available to have spacious offices, wooden desks, and book shelves. Most of the space within a sub would be taken up by the equipment necessary for it to function. In addition, such features (desks, chairs, etc.) would add a considerable amount of weight and be difficult to get inside in the sub in the first place.Matdan97
Continuity mistake: The girl drives away from the wrestling arena sitting in the right seat, but when she drives up to the hotel she's sitting in the left seat. Either a flipped shot or a different vehicle.
Revealing mistake: When Bond exits the room after his meeting with M aboard the submarine, he slams the door, causing the whole wall to move.
Revealing mistake: When Helga traps Bond with a smoke-bomb and wooden restraint in the plane before jumping out to safety, you can see the wooden restraint has a pre-made crack down the centre when Bond eventually breaks loose.
Continuity mistake: When the hired thug is driving a disguised Bond to the Osato Building, the thug looks back at him. The forward view does not show the hood, wheel or dash of the car. After he goes back to driving, Bond peeks up to see where they're going, and now you can see the dash, and wheel. Also, when the thug looks around, the mirror shows only a blurred image of Bond, not the face and back of the thug's head. As Bond sees the building, the camera can now see only the thug's reflection in the mirror. Finally, they were in a downtown area with no dead end in sight. Then suddenly, there's the building. With no turns, that's a fast moving car.Movie Nut
Continuity mistake: In the fight scene in the Osato building, Bond uses a couch as a battering ram against the guy that carried him in. After the third hit, Bond drops the couch after the attacker flips over it onto the floor. The next moment, he has the couch up ram-style, and the other man is back up, in the place where he can be hit again, a good five feet from where he was on the floor on his back.Movie Nut
Revealing mistake: When the camera goes to pan to Tanaka and Bond, watch the monitors behind them. The pictures don't stay within the frames of TV spheres, meaning they're animations poorly edited in.
Factual error: At the dock where Bond and Aki are investigating the Ning-Po, there are cylinders labeled as containing turpentine made by Osato Chemical, but which Bond figures out are really filled with liquid oxygen (LOX), presumably to be incorporated with rocket fuel in SPECTRE's mischievous meddling with other nations' spacecraft. To keep the LOX inside cold and liquid, the container needs to slowly vent oxygen to carry away heat which is constantly entering from outside. This venting would be visible as a stream of water vapor exiting a port, such as what's commonly seen leaking from the sides of rockets which are waiting on their launch pads. There is no such venting, which means the LOX inside will no longer be LOX by the time it gets to where it's going.
