Corrected entry: During the car chase in Spain, one of the black cars gets rammed by the other black car and rolls down a hill. If you watch carefully, you can see a crew member move behind a tree to avoid being hit by the rolling car.
Corrected entry: When Bond escapes from Gonzales' estate, we see a man attempting to open Bond's Lotus Esprit and is then killed by an explosion when he tries to break into it. This man is the stuntman Bob Simmons.
Corrected entry: Bond and Melina dive from a submersible at a depth of over 300ft. Assuming the sub was kept at surface pressure there are two problems with this scene: 1) The 'ascent' time is far too quick. It should take Bond and Melina 10 minutes to go from 300ft to sea level (i.e. the pressure inside the sub) and that's if you forget about 2) Decompression! Bond and Melina do absolutely NO deco whatsoever upon returning to the submersible. They simply get back in and take their diving suits off. This would kill them. There is no way any diver, no matter how experienced, can INSTANTLY return to surface pressure from a depth of 300ft, having been breathing mixed gas, and not suffer all kinds of diving injuries/ illnesses. The alternative explanation is that the sub was pressurised to the depth on the sea bed, but even so they just pop the hatch open and get straight back out upon returning to the surface. This would have the same results described above.
Corrected entry: Any explosive powerful enough to destroy the St George in the manner shown would rip to shreds anyone or anything within about 100m, certainly anyone standing right next to the ship as Bond and Melina were. There is no way they would be able to walk away from that unharmed. A previous correction states that the explosive was only intended to destroy the ATAC. This is irrelevant. The explosion's shockwave ripped through the St George's hull, utterly destroying the wreck of the ship from which Bond & Melina were only a few feet. Any shockwave that powerful would have destroyed them also, not just "stopped" mid water as depicted.
Corrected entry: Contrary to what this movie depicts, explosions actually have their concussive force magnified underwater. Any explosive powerful enough to destroy the St George in the manner shown would rip to shreds anyone or anything within about 100m, certainly anyone standing right next to the ship as Bond and Melina were. There is no way they would be able to walk away from that unharmed.
Corrected entry: The message written on the mirror in Bond's hotel room is far too clear to have been written before the steam got on the mirror. If it had been written before it would have been readable, but there would have been some steam in the letters themselves. No sticky substances are used to create the letters, because if there were, the letters would be visible before the steam came on the mirror, and there would be traces of it left when Bond wiped the mirror clean. Notice he just wipes it over once - and everything is gone.Jacob La Cour
Corrected entry: When the Cuban hitman is shot with the crossbow, the arrow hits his back at the wrong angle. It should have been in his side instead of his back.
Corrected entry: Bond's climbing method is ridiculous. Instead of knocking in carabiners as he goes, he hammers them in so far above the ground that if he fell, the length of drop would have killed him anyway.
Corrected entry: When Bond and Melina are being chased in Melina's car, as they drive down the steep hill, Bond makes a witty remark and Melina starts laughing, then in the next shot she has a very serious look on her face.
Corrected entry: When Bond and Melina are being chased in Melina's car, you can see an aerial view of the chase; and when each of the cars goes around the corner, the picture is sped up slightly
Corrected entry: At St Cyrils as Colombo and Melina are being raised in the basket Melina fires an arrow at one of the guards that hits him with enough force to throw him backwards off his feet, yet when she later removes the arrow it appears that not even the arrow head has penetrated his body, in fact it practically falls out.Paul Bessant
Corrected entry: When he goes into the hotel room, you can hear a shower running. The shower stops, and about 2 seconds later the girl comes out wearing only a towel, however she is completely dry.
Corrected entry: In the scene at the end when Bond throws the machine of the cliff, it is flipping slowly, but in the next shot before it breaks, it's spinning quickly. This quick change in the direction it's spinning and the speed it's moving is impossible.
Corrected entry: In the scene where 'Q' leads Bond from the laboratory into the room containing the identograph, there are several Q-branch staff visible in the background. A moment later, however, when a secretary enters with tea, all the staff have gone home and the lights have been extinguished.
Corrected entry: When Bond and company attack Kristato's warehouse, it is in the middle of the night, however as Bond runs up the stairs to chase the escaping bad guy, he reaches the top in broad daylight.
