Revealing mistake: When Bond and Tania are evading the bad guys on the boat we see James push the fuel drums into the water. Look closely at the next scene and you can see the wake from the boat filming the sequence.

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.

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.
