Corrected entry: Why does the part of the ice palace in which Jinx is imprisoned melt so much faster than the rest? And why doesn't that apply to the walls and door? (01:36:40)
Corrected entry: In the opening sequence in North Korea. When James Bond detonates the C4 in the brief case carrying the diamonds, the diamonds fly into the air and some are embedded into Zao's face. When the C4 is detonated Zao has the back of his head facing the case with the diamonds in. When the case explodes Zao lands face down on the floor. How come he has diamonds embedded into his face - surely they should be in the back of his head? (00:08:10)
Corrected entry: Icarus is shown in low earth orbit, and would pass from horizon to horizon in under 15 minutes - yet the beam is always vertical as if fixed overhead. In low earth orbit, the chances of Icarus being right overhead Korea or Iceland at any given moment are quite slim. On the other hand, if it were in a geostationary orbit, it would be over the equator, and the beam would be at least 50 degrees from the vertical over Iceland. However, from that position it couldn't also target Korea. If there is a geostationary orbit visible from both Iceland and Korea, it would be very low on the horizon and thus useless for hitting a target.
Corrected entry: You can't electrocute someone with a medical defibrillator, even if you do hit them with both pads. They come equipped with a very sensitive device which stops the current flow if a heartbeat is detected.
Corrected entry: When Zao is having DNA alteration he still has the diamonds embedded in his face - what's the point in getting a face change? If they can be removed why hasn't he done this first? If they can't be removed he'll have a different face with a whole mess of diamonds embedded in it, which would be quite a major giveaway. (00:42:30)
Corrected entry: When Bond is about to sneak into the restricted area of the ice palace, he takes out two guards by opening a valve and causing steam to explode over them. He opens the valve by turning a wheel, which appears to be metal, using bare hands in sub-zero temperatures. Under those conditions his hands would have stuck to the metal and Bond would have left a good few layers of his skin on the wheel. (01:14:55)
Corrected entry: When Bond and Jinx are trying to escape in the helicopter, they open the door and start the conveyor. The red car drops. Quite a few seconds later, the yellow car is dropped. Yet, later, we see the cars nose down in the mud about 20 feet apart. How did this happen when the plane was moving at such speed? (01:59:30)
Corrected entry: During the virtual training scene,just after James meets Charles-he ejects his clip from his gun and reaches behind his back to get a full one,the slide is forward when he inserts the clip...meaning he would have had to manually chamber a round,but there isn't a sound to say that he did, meaning his chamber would have been empty.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Bond steals Graves's rocket-powered ice vehicle, there is an overhead shot looking down at the vehicle (just after Graves says "bring me the generals". At the top of the frame, you can see a white cable pulling the ice vehicle along. (01:27:35)
Corrected entry: When Bond is driving in the Chevy in Havana, look at the speedometer. It's clearly at zero. (00:33:10)
Corrected entry: During the fencing scene between 007 and Graves, there is a shot when Graves is removing his fencing coat. There is a line that is used to trigger the fake blood from his hand going up the inside of the jacket arm. (00:56:15)
Corrected entry: The Aston and the Jaguar do not have space in the engine bay to install the hardware they were holding in the movie. Even for the prop cars they replaced the engines with Ford V8s, so how could the real deal have had enough space - it couldn't. Apart from that, why would anybody buy an Aston, then throw away the engine and put in a pushrod V8? Might as well start with another car altogether. Practicality does come into play here.MGD
Corrected entry: In the scene where Bond is in the rocket sled being chased by the huge beam of light, Graves uses the laser to cut a huge section of ice out of the cliff, it cuts about 100 meters without problems. But when the laser is used on the ice palace, it just slowly melts instead of being completely annihilated. (01:35:55)
Corrected entry: Bond enters the first hotel with long hair and a scruffy beard. By the time the 'massage' lady came to his room, how did he give himself such a neat haircut? It couldn't have been done by a hairdresser at the hotel, because surely they would have also given him an equally neat shave too - and he would have no need for the electric razor he was using.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Bond is using the rocket sledge, he ends up using its brake-chute to paraglide and kite-surf. Brake-chutes are round (see dragsters, jet fighters,... ), an aerofoil turns speed into lift.
Corrected entry: When Bond revives Jinx in the hot spring, she sputters a bit and starts talking. Previously, she had been unconscious and underwater. She should have lungs full of water to spit out before she could speak. (01:40:15)
Corrected entry: Towards the end of the film when Jinx tries to level out the plane, she stabilizes it at just over 5,000 feet and then starts the fight with Miranda. Yet when Jinx and Bond are in the helicopter when it is falling out of the sky the altitude they fall from is shown on the helicopter's altimeter as over 7,000 feet, and that's after dropping for a while. (01:58:50)
Corrected entry: When the suitcase of diamonds explodes, surely the diamonds that caught the face of Zao, and other soldiers, would cut right through him/them, as diamonds are the hardest material on Earth. Instead they seem to have been implanted into his skin. (00:08:20)
Corrected entry: When Bond is at the Ice Palace the car is invisible when he's sneaking around, but when he opens the door you can plainly see the wing mirror through the car window, if the car is invisible you wouldn't be able to see any of the car's exterior. (01:13:40)
Corrected entry: Why do the U.S. give up after sending one rocket against the Icarus satellite? Why don't they just send 50 or 100 rockets up at the same time, all coming from different directions? There would be no way the Icarus satellite could shoot them all down. That would have stopped the bad guy's master plan much sooner. (01:43:10)
