Die Another Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: At the end of the Bond/Graves sword fight (after Miranda has stepped between them), in the close-up of Bond, he lowers his sword. In the long shot a fraction of a second later, it's raised in front of him again. (00:56:25)

Continuity mistake: When Gustav Graves arrives in his ice-slidey-vehicle, in the long shot the top starts to slide open, but in a closeup it's shut, and his assistant opens it. Plus he has the helmet in his hand when the glass lid is opened, but his head was so close to the top of the glass that there is no room for him to remove the helmet with the cockpit shut. (01:06:30)

Continuity mistake: At the end of the fencing battle between Graves and Bond, Graves has a nasty cut on his right cheek near his ear. When he and Bond meet again in Iceland the following weekend, his right side is shown close up and there is no sign of this despite only being a few days later. (00:56:33)

Continuity mistake: On the old subway platform when Q is about to introduce Bond to his "new transportation," they both look on as Q clicks a control to bring forth the carriage that has the still invisible Vanquish on it. The carriage almost passes them already when the shot cuts to another angle, and this time the carriage is still approaching on the railtrack from a bit farther away. Also, Q's right arm is now up holding the remote control, when in the previous shot just a second ago it was straight down by his side. (01:05:41)

Continuity mistake: At the end of the film as Bond and Jinx are in the helicopter after being dropped from the plane, as he is starting the engine, the caution/annunciator lights turn off 3 times in 3 different shots for no apparent reason whatsoever. (01:59:05)

Continuity mistake: When Bond uses his sound-ring to break the glass floor, we see the floor crack twice. (01:26:35)

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: When Bond is with Jinx at the beach in Cuba, he says to her, "It's when their prey comes out to drink." Jinx then takes the glass her from her mouth and brings it down the front of her body, but in the next shot she is drinking from the glass again.

Continuity mistake: When Bond saves Jinx from the flooded room his hair changes from wet to dry then wet again when he gets her out of the car.

Continuity mistake: Just before the hovercraft smashes through the gate, the hovercraft that was overturned in front of it disappears.

Continuity mistake: All three surfers at the start are bare footed, but once on the beach and after, they have footwear - in a supposedly continuous scene.

Continuity mistake: After Bond first meets Jinx, he lets her try his drink. After she sips it, the top of the glass drops four to six inches below her chin. When the shot cuts to Bond, she's just tipping the glass down from her sip.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: When Bond and Graves are fencing, the amount of blood on Bond's nose increases or decreases randomly between shots, without any logical order.

Continuity mistake: When Jinx takes a sip of her drink, Bond says to her, "Too strong for you?" and you can see takes the glass away from her mouth, but in the next shot she is holding the glass close to her lips.

Plot hole: When James and Jinx sneak on Gustav's plane, Jinx heads for the cockpit. The pilot gets out of his seat and leaves, making it easy for Jinx to knock out the co-pilot and take over the plane. But what happens to the pilot? he never comes back, even when Miranda is pointing a sword at Jinx, nor when she is fighting to keep the plane flying. (01:49:30)

More quotes from Die Another Day

Trivia: In the training sim, Bond refers to the virtual M's seemingly fatal wounding as "just a flesh wound." He makes this remark to John Cleese who said the same thing in "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" after having all his limbs removed by king Arthur.

More trivia for Die Another Day

Question: In "The World Is Not Enough" Bond, using his intuition, correctly assessed that Elektra King had sided with the villain. So why did he never suspect for a second that Miranda Frost had done the same in this film?

Answer: Bond's suspicions about Elektra King were triggered by his discovery that her head of security, Davidov, was working with Renard. With Miranda Frost, there was nothing that would have led Bond to believe she was a double agent working for Graves/Moon in any capacity other than her undercover MI6 assignment.
