Revealing mistake: When Bond and Kerim are sailing in the underground reservoir, just before they arrive at the Russian Consulate, there is a closeup of the oar moving through the water. At the bottom of the screen there is a white object moving through the water. It is not clear what it is, but it is not there in any of the other shots of the boat - neither before nor after. It could be the leg of a crew member pushing the boat. (00:33:50)

Visible crew/equipment: When James Bond shoots down the helicopter then it crashes, he emerges from the rocks to run from the crash site to the right of picture, just as you see Sean Connery emerge from behind rocks from the right in the same scene. So for about a second there are two James Bonds in picture. One is the stunt man and the other is Sean Connery. (01:38:05)
