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.

Plot hole: In the pre title sequence James Bond travels in a hovercraft along the dirt road which is full of land mines. Soon after reaching the waterfall at the end, trucks drive up along the road he just drove in on to capture him. As there was only one road in to the waterfall complex the landmines must have all disappeared, as earlier on in that sequence we are informed that the only way that the North Koreans can avoid the mines along that road is by hovercraft.

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.

Revealing mistake: After the helicopter escape at the end, a red sports car is sticking nose down in the ground after falling hundreds of feet down out of the airplane, without a single crack in the windshield, in mint condition. The yellow one only has the right door open.

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.

Factual error: During the scene in which Bond escapes from MI6 custody, after inducing drop in heartbeat, he seizes the defibrillator paddles and uses them to shock the two male orderlies. However, only one of those paddles would have administered a shock; the other one is only there to form a circuit for the electric charge, therefore, at best it should only have shocked one of the orderlies.

Die Another Day mistake picture

Factual error: Towards the end of the film as the helicopter tumbles through the sky after it has fallen out of the plane, Jinx looks back from the cockpit and sees the diamonds in a neat pile spilling out of the door. Surely if the helicopter has been tumbling through the sky, they would be scattered all over the place.

Die Another Day mistake picture

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.

Revealing mistake: When Bond is in the car following the goons heading into the facility, it shows the techie guy scan a card and then swipe it to open a door. Before he swipes it, the door is already opening.

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.

Other mistake: During the James Bond windsurfing scene as he was escaping the ice, his hair and suit are dry in what seems to be 50 foot waves.

xx:xx:xx

Die Another Day mistake picture

Other mistake: The underground station is supposed to have been abandoned long ago, and there is ancient advertising for Ford cars on the wall. But in the entranceway to the platform there's a recent ad for Philips electronics.

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.

Die Another Day mistake picture

Revealing mistake: When the bad guy fires at Bond with the mini-gun attached to his green Jaguar, you can see that the gun does not have an ammo feed.

Revealing mistake: When Bond arrives in Cuba and walks past the children dancing in the foreground you can see a man leaning on a wall holding a fishing rod looking directly into the camera, following it from left to right.

xx:xx:xx

Die Another Day mistake picture

Factual error: In the scene where James Bond is cutting through the ice with the watch laser, we clearly see that the ice is (at most) 15cm thick - yet there are dozens of cars parked on the same ice. They'd have fallen straight through.

xx:xx:xx

Die Another Day mistake picture

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.

xx:xx:xx

Die Another Day mistake picture

Factual error: In the hovercraft chase scene at the beginning, when the Korean hovercraft flips over and hits the small bunker, it can be seen that it's got a flat, metal body on the underside - but they should have lift fans there; with no lift fans, they would not be able to float at all.

xx:xx:xx

Die Another Day mistake picture

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.

Factual error: Iceland has no vegetation above the size of birches and willows, which rather spoils the scene with Mr. Bond crashing through a patch of firs (or whatever those needle trees were)...

xx:xx:xx

Die Another Day mistake picture

Deliberate mistake: When Bond is fighting Zhao in the clinic, they accidentally set off the tomograph Zhao was lying in. As this machine's powerful magnetic fields indeed would pull any metallic object in, no doctor with common sense would allow sharp objects and other stuff within range. You aren't even allowed to carry watches and have to report any dental fillings.

xx:xx:xx

Die Another Day mistake picture

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.

Trivia: Most of the scenes of the greenhouse in Iceland were filmed at The Eden Project in Cornwall, including the shots of James Bond zipping up the rope, and running down the side of the building. The opening shots of the beach in Korea were also filmed in Cornwall, at Holywell bay.

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.

Visible crew/equipment: For a moment during the Bond/Graves sword fight (after Graves shatters the glass case, nearly impaling Bond), we get a brief glimpse of the stunt doubles for both actors.

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.

xx:xx:xx

Die Another Day mistake picture

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.

xx:xx:xx

Die Another Day mistake picture

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.

Die Another Day mistake picture

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?

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.

Revealing mistake: During the sword fight in the castle a sword penetrates a glass panel behind which stands an armour. The armour is then pushed through the glass panel behind it. The first glass panel breaks in big pieces (probably the usual 'sugar' glass), whereas the second glass panel shatters properly.

xx:xx:xx

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.

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

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.

xx:xx:xx

Die Another Day mistake picture

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.

Die Another Day mistake picture

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