Continuity mistake: After the scene where Klebb arrives via helicopter on Spectre island and meets Morzeny, they enter a training area and continue their conversation while walking through it. Just after Morzeny says '.we use live targets as well,' the scene cuts to a wide shot and they are entering the same training area once again, only this time from a path that is just right next to the one used before.

Factual error: Near the beginning of the film, they arrive by helicopter at a training facility. There is no noise as they converse on the lawn, but they walk a few paces through a door, and there is lots of training happening with gunfire and explosions. It's all in the open air (no ceiling), so therefore would've been easily heard from the lawn, a few dozen feet away.
Continuity mistake: When James finds the Russian defector in his hotel bed, they kiss, a lot. Problem is: At first, she's wearing a generous amount of red lipstick, and when they finish, she is still wearing a generous amount of lipstick, and it is not smudged, which it should be, and James hasn't any lipstick on his face and mouth, which should be impossible - not even a smudge.kh1616
Continuity mistake: When Bond arranges to meet Tania at the mosque he is carrying a camera. When he spots the Bulgar spying on Tania he puts the camera down by a pillar. He takes out his gun and raps it in a handkerchief. The next scene shows him with his camera (without the gun) looking at the Bulgar again. This is a repeat shot from a few seconds before.bcoles
Continuity mistake: In the scene in the underground reservoir, Bond and Kerim set off in the little boat. There is a clip of the oar, which is turned over a few times to shake off some rats. In that clip, the oar does not move forward in the water (as can be seen from the air bubbles in the water). In the next clip the boat is moving again. A boat takes a little way to get completely still. It is implausible that Kerim would stop the boat completely to shake off the rats, and then start moving again. The clip with the rats must have been made afterwards with a stationery oar.Jacob La Cour
Continuity mistake: At the gypsy camp, at the end the belly dance, we see Bond at the table with Kerim. In the first shot, there is about ½ meter of empty table between Kerim and the corner. Bond is at the end of the table. In the next shot, Kerim is right at the corner with his right hand very close to Bond's elbow.Jacob La Cour
Continuity mistake: When Bond and Kerim-Bey arrive at the gypsy camp, they are riding in a white 1960 Ford station wagon. At alternate times the car appears as a four-door model and as a two-door model.
Plot hole: Bond lies to Tanya on the date the embassy would be bombed (Karim and Bond knew the 13th) and Tanya denoted the deception by telling Bond when he came in the decoding room she thought it was the 14th. How did Grant know to A: be on the train and B: have an entire escape plan set up for the wrong day?
Audio problem: As Grant throws a knife at one of the gypsies at their camp there's a swoosh sound. The sound is way too long considering how near he is and how hard he has to throw it in order for it to be lethal.
Continuity mistake: When we see the agent waiting for Bond at the Zagreb train station, he has a handkerchief in the pocket on the right-hand side of his suit coat. When he is talking to Bond on the train platform, the pocket is now on the left side.
Continuity mistake: When the train conductor takes Bond (as Mr Somerset) to the compartment where Kerim Bey and the Russian have been killed, you can see that Bond is standing in front of the door of the compartment when the camera is in the corridor. When the conductor opens the door to the compartment, Bond can be seen standing on the far side of the door and is not seen until right before he enters.
Continuity mistake: When Bond says "Tell our host his hospitality overwhelms me," after the belly dance at the gypsy camp, Bond takes the handkerchief out of the pocket of his suit and starts wiping his hands with it. He is not wiping his hands in the next shot, but in the shot after that, he is.
Other mistake: When Bond has knocked out the truck driver who was going to meet up with Grant, the driver is lying on his back. Bond grabs a bit of shirt and easily flips him over onto his belly. There is no way a person can flipped over so easily and with so little leverage.
