Dr. No

Stupidity: Bond has been shot at and hunted down by armed men and dogs. He must conclude his life is in danger, and yet after Bond despatches the armed man in the creek who is carrying a British Sten submachine gun, he fails to pickup the weapon which has far superior firepower to his small calibre hand gun. Had he done, so he may well have saved Quarrel and avoided capture.

Factual error: When Bond is involved in a high-speed chase on the way to Miss Taro's house, his wheels are squealing like crazy, but he's on a dirt road. (00:48:10)

Answer: In Goldfinger, Q says "It has not been perfected, out of years of patient research, ENTIRELY for that purpose, 007. And incidentally, we'd appreciate its return, along with all your other equipment, INTACT for once, when you return from the field."
