Continuity mistake: In the final fight scene on the plane between Jinx and Agent Frost, Jinx is slashed across her stomach, drawing blood. In a later scene, when Jinx and 007 are pouring diamonds over one another in the hut on the cliff, her stomach is unblemished.

Continuity mistake: When Jinx and Bond sneak onto Grave's plane, Jinx can be seen with a nickel plated pistol (this is also evident throughout the entire film). Yet when Jinx is in the cockpit and Frost tells her to hand over the gun, it's now no longer nickel plated but standard gun metal black.

Continuity mistake: When Bond first sees Jinx get out of the water, she is naturally dripping wet. After it cuts to him, it cuts back to her and she is already bone dry as she is picking up her towel to dry off.

Continuity mistake: During the car chase on the ice, Bond's Aston Martin flips over. You can see the left wing mirror break off as this happens, together with a chunk of something else. When the car flips back over, the wing mirror's back on in one piece. A chunk of something else falls off though, but there's no visible damage to the car afterwards.

Continuity mistake: During the car chase scene on the ice, the green Jaguar fires a minigun at Bond's car several times. Amazingly, Bond's car doesnt even have a scratch on it. Even if the car was bullet proof, it would still have large dents and scratches, not to mention the large cracks in the glass, the likes of which could be seen when Q fires a pistol at a sheet of bullet proof glass earlier in the film.

Continuity mistake: In the beginning, James Bond steals a suitcase full of diamonds. He takes the compartment with the diamonds out, and sets a bomb under it. When we see him putting the C4 in it, we can see that the explosive is very nearly as high as the edge of the case, but the diamond compartment fits back inside perfectly. How?

Continuity mistake: Just before Zao runs to the helicopter, he smashes nearly all the glass out of a stained-glass window. There's then an explosion which removes what little glass remains. But when the rubble lands and blocks the window, there's still a decent amount of glass left in the frame.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: Bond opens up the necklace that Zao had and there are 4 diamonds inside. Later when he shows them to M it changes to 5. Where did that extra diamond come from? It can't be that Graves gave him another one after Bond's bet - that was settled by cheque.

Continuity mistake: In the scene with all the high ranking Korean officers in the bunker, they all have identical medals even though they are different ranks/ages. One of them even has his upside down.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: Given the amount of time Bond was maltreated by the North Koreans you'd think he would have suffered the effects of malnourishment (lost weight, muscle tone). Yet when he is seen bare-chested after the prisoner exchange, he appears perfectly fit and is able to win a physically demanding sword fight against Gustav Graves.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: Jinx shoots the doctor twice, once through the cheque, and once in the neck/throat. In the next scene, the two bullet holes are in his upper left chest. Plus when Bond finds him, there's no blood on the body.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: Just after James loses the hind legs of the rocket sled in the scene where he is being followed by the huge beam of light from the Icarus craft, the back end of the vehicle gives off smoke. But when you next see a picture of the whole vehicle a few shots later, there is no smoke.

Continuity mistake: When Bond cuts the hole in the ice, he uses the laser on his watch at an angle. Yet he still manages to cut a perfectly round circle with vertical sides.

Continuity mistake: During the battle in North Korea, the General's son's hovercraft smashes into a fence and dives into the water. It makes a little hole in the fence. When Bond arrives, the whole fence is destroyed.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: The first time we see the inside of the transport plane, the helicopter is very close to the yellow car, with its tail sticking most of the way over it. When Bond and Jinx come to escape and start up the conveyer belt, the yellow car's nowhere near the tail. Nothing to do with the conveyer itself - it's just two standard belts moving backwards. The car can't move any faster than the chopper.

Jon Sandys

Continuity mistake: When Bond rescues Jinx from the frozen water, for the same angle his hair has two styles and keeps swapping between shots: Sticky fringe to the right, loose fringe to the left.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: When Bond goes over the ice cliff into the sea he surfs a wide stretch of sea, flies up onto an ice edge on the other side, catches a guy on a snowmobile and is suddenly back at the ice palace - which should by then be far behind him.

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: As Graves says "Global warming. . ." watch Miranda Frost's hands. They're clasped in front of her. A second later, as Graves finishes his line and the generals bow to him, her hands her are on her hips. It's too quick a shot for her to have simply moved them.

Continuity mistake: During the training program, Bond shoots M to make the gunman release her. We then cut to a closeup of Bond shooting, and you can see the slide cycles, then locks back (it's a quick shot, but the earlier shot of him shooting at M shows how quickly the slide should move forwards), showing the gun's out of ammo, despite only having reloaded 4 shots earlier. It then cuts to the gunman being hit, and Bond fires again. Now that's some speedy reloading...

Jon Sandys

Continuity mistake: Bond watches the island through the binoculars - and sees it very close up. When he watches Jinx come out of the water she would be huge if watched with the same magnification.

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: During the first lovemaking scene between Bond and Jinx, you see her open a knife and cut a piece of fruit. In a close-up (when you can see her whole face) you can see her eating the fruit. The camera cuts to a side view of both characters and you see Jinx put the fruit up to James' mouth so he can have some too. But when the camera cuts back to Jinx, she's still eating the fruit.

Continuity mistake: Before Bond and Jinx get on board the plane, a long shot shows its nose to be solid, as normal. But in the first shot of the inside, when Graves enters, the nose is entirely paned glass.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Gustav Graves is demonstrating the power of Icarus, the audience has their sunglasses on to block the sunlight. After Icarus is shut down we see a shot of a man and a woman behind Bond to each side without sunglasses on (just after the shot of the 3 guys in suits removing their glasses). When we cut out to a wide shot we see these two people removing their glasses.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: We can see the ice palace surrounded by mountains and icebergs, but when Bond escapes Icarus, they're gone.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Bond and Jinx cuts the fence to get onto the plane it is totally black night. But when the plane takes off it is broad daylight.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Bond is in the rocket sled he is in the ice palace. But when you see the bad guy with the binoculars looking out the window, in the reflection of the binoculars it shows a desert type of land.

Continuity mistake: During the scene where James Bond and Gustav Graves are having their sword fight Gustav cuts James' knee but for the rest of the scene there is no blood.

Continuity mistake: In the scene,where Bond meets Jinx the very first time, the bartender in the background does weird things. First, Bond asks him for a mojito, he comes to him. Later, when Bond looks at Jinx, the bartender is in the far left side of the counter. When next time Bond is seen, the bartender is close behind Bond. And next time the camera changes its view, the bartender is in the far left corner again. He remains there in the rest of the scene.

Continuity mistake: When Q brings out the flatcar with the invisible car on it, the flatcar appears empty. Q explains how the invisibility is achieved, and he walks behind the car. We see Q's legs distort cartoonishly as he does so. Why doesn't this distortion take place when the car is moving out of the tunnel?

Mark Bernhard

Continuity mistake: In the scene at the fencing club when Bond and Graves are fencing, they knock over a suit of armor that is holding a sword. When Graves picks up this sword, Bond picks up another sword from the same place on the ground, but there was only one sword with the suit of armor. Also, the sword with the armor is a bastard sword, but neither character is using such a large sword in the rest of the fight.

Die Another Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: During the scene when Bond sees Jinx emerging from the water, the angle cuts back and forth between the both of them. You can see that is some shots Bond's cigar is not lit; there is no smoke coming from it and also the "cherry" does not light up as he puffs it. In others it's lit properly. The length of the cigar and the height of the Mojito drink also change.

Timothy Conard
Die Another Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Bond jumps down from the truck after being captured, he is handcuffed (or has his hands tied). However, when he lands, he's holding a guard in each hand - for stability - but in the next scene, during the General's speech, he's tied again.

xx:xx:xx

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: During the scene when Graves parachutes in for a publicity stunt, when he hits the ground and starts walking, a guard (guy in black suit with a headset) walks towards him and assists him by grabbing the parachute cords to pull it off of him. The camera angle changes to in front of graves, and the same guy is merely standing beside him while he removes the parachute belts himself.

xx:xx:xx

Timothy Conard

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the torture sequence, as Bond's face is lifted from the tub of ice water, the Korean woman leans toward him to the point where their faces are almost touching. But a fraction of a second later, as he's pushed back into the water, she's sitting back. It's too quick a change in shot for her to have simply moved - we'd have seen it.

Add time

Continuity mistake: In the pre-credit sequence, the guy who becomes Graves demonstrates the power of his shell launcher by blowing up Bond's chopper. The soldier beside him has his AK-47 raised, covering Bond. It skips to the helicopter exploding, and comes back to Graves firing the shell launcher a second time. The soldier lifts his AK up a second time.

Continuity mistake: When Miranda Frost finally gets killed, her right arm goes from being held up, then outstretched when she gets kicked, to up just before she falls over, to outstretched as she actually does fall over.

xx:xx:xx

Jon Sandys
Die Another Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the US Command Bunker, when the group gathers in front of the large satellite monitor on the wall to discuss Graves' whereabout, the shot from behind shows a man in business suit already passing Bond completely; when cut to the front in the next shot showing Bond's face, the same man is seen crossing right behind Bond again.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Bond's new car is introduced to him, Bond can't see it, even though it moves, but when Q walks past it, it distorts the image quite a lot. Further on in the film, whenever the car is invisible, it distorts the image behind it.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Q hands Bond his new watch, he puts it on his left wrist, as the Pierce Brosnan "Bond" always has. Every scene from there after shows it on his left wrist. However, when he later removes it to use the laser emitter to cut a hole in the ice, he removes it from his right wrist. All following scenes show it again on his left wrist.

Continuity mistake: When James is first talking to Jinx after she comes out the water, her hand position changes on the glass she is drinking from.

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.

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.

xx:xx:xx

Die Another Day mistake picture

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.

xx:xx:xx

Die Another Day mistake picture

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

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

xx:xx:xx

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: 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 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.

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.
