Suggested correction: The cut to the belly dancer is a jump ahead in time. There is no continuous action or sound between the shots and the food appearing shows time has passed.

Continuity mistake: The train is stopped because Spectre has pushed a 1950's style Dodge truck full of flowers in the trains path. Later, when James is driving it trying to avoid the grenades dropped from a helicopter, the truck has turned into a very different looking 1961 Chevrolet truck.

Continuity mistake: Just after Grant has hit 007 on the back of his head and knocked him out, Grant searches through the pockets of 007, he takes out some money and puts it into his lower left side pocket. But when 007 kills Grant and searches his pockets, 007 takes back the money from Grant's inside top right hand pocket.

Continuity mistake: When Bond and Tatiana are in the boat chase and are being followed, they drop four cans of fuel in the sea. When Bond blows them up, there are way more than four fuel explosions in the sea. (01:43:15)

Continuity mistake: James Bond is chased by an helicopter. When seen from above, Bond carries an attaché case in one hand; when shown from the ground, the case is in the other hand. This change happens many times, as the camera point of view switches.

Continuity mistake: When Kerim Bey is making a sniper shot towards a billboard with the rifle being steadied on Bond's shoulder, check out Bond's eyebrows - they are long in one shot, short in another....obviously painted on. (00:49:05)

Continuity mistake: When Grant hits 007 on the back of the head with his gun, he falls onto his back about six inches away from the seat, but in the next shot 007 is lying on his right side and his face is right up against the seat.

Continuity mistake: When Grant is putting something into Tatiana's drink her arms are together in her lap as she is looking out of the window, as the next shot cuts in when the waiter says "excuse me merci" Tatiana is holding a fork in her right hand.

Continuity mistake: Bond and Tatiana break into a Russian embassy to steal the 'Lektor' decoding device. As Bond tries to close the lid on the device, the lid is not even close to being closed. Ever the great actor, Sean Connery simply tucks the still-open device under his arm and continues the scene, which is him hastily making his escape from the room with the 'Lektor'. However, the scene shows that the 'Lektor' case is now fully and correctly closed only one second later, which is impossible to do in an instant. (01:02:40)

Continuity mistake: Just before the girl fight at the gypsy camp, Bond's coffee cup moves between shots. In the first clip after we see the girls enter the scene, the withe rimmed coffee cup is at the corner of the table, to the left of Bond's plate. In the next clip is is right next to the coffee pot and the plate. In the clip in between, Bond sits perfectly still, and the cup is visible, so it was not moved there. (00:41:40)

Continuity mistake: During the battle at the Gypsy camp, Kerim Bey gets shot on his arm but when Bond talks to him later, he has blood everywhere. Even if he had blood on his hands, I don't think he started to touch himself everywhere just for the fun. (00:45:20)

Suggested correction: The blood that is "everywhere" is small patches of blood. Easily transferred depending on what Harim does off screen after being shot.

Continuity mistake: When 007 pulls the gun out on Grant, watch how Grant's shadow changes position in the background in between shots, from when he says "take it easy 007" to his next line "my escape route's only for one"
