Never Say Never Again

New this month Revealing mistake: Just before Bond's miniature pen rocket blasts Fatima Blush into confetti, we see closeups of her gleefully cackling at the rocket's apparent malfunction. When the camera cuts back to a wide shot (to show the considerable explosion that follows), we can still hear Fatima laughing, but she has been physically replaced by a stiff, static, costumed manikin whose face isn't even recognizable as Fatima's. The manikin (possibly made of and costumed in paper maché) is then completely obliterated by a three-stage blast.

Revealing mistake: After the opening scene, M is viewing it all on tape. But the tape shows the scene in the same way as the audience saw it - the line of sight is changing, zooming in etc., much more than hidden surveillance cameras could accomplish.

Revealing mistake: At the beginning of the film Bond is on a training exercise to free a trapped hostage. Since it is only a training exercise everyone involved is using blanks in their weapons; why is it that when Bond fires an automatic rifle we hear multiple bullets ricocheting?

Revealing mistake: There is an underwater scene where Bond is swimming in a sunken ship, trying to escape a shark. At one point, he swims into a cabin,and the sharks head comes through the door. The camera then goes to a close up of Bond's hand trying to latch the door, while the sharks head is pushing on it. The film is then reversed several times to make it look like Bond is trying to push the door shut while the shark is pushing it open.

Revealing mistake: Before Bond throws the urine specimen in Lippe's face during their fight at the health farm, look at the beaker and you can see a tablet dissolving in the water.

Revealing mistake: In the shot of the US submarine from below, the waves above move too fast and it is clear that they are little ripples on the water above a small model boat.
