Goldeneye

Continuity mistake: James Bond does his bungee jump down a dam that looks like it's in the beginning of spring, but when he emerges from the factory, it is dead winter with no dam in site, since they are on a mountain top.

Goldeneye mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Bond and Natalia eject from the helicopter, you can clearly see two white parachutes, but when the capsule lands, in two scenes you see the parachutes being red and white.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When Alec confronts Bond in the storeroom at the beginning of the film, he's seen pointing a suppressed Browning BDA at him; however in the other scenes the gun switches to an anachronistic Browning BDM (as this sequence is set in 1986). The BDM is what Trevelyan uses during the climax.

TheHeartbreakKid15

Continuity mistake: At the end, all the marines reveal themselves, to the surprise of Bond and the woman (fair enough). But at the same time three helicopters come in from the top of the screen, which apparently no-one had heard or seen until that second. Odd, especially since they only start making any noise when they're in shot...

Continuity mistake: In the tank chase scene, when Orumov's car goes down the alley the head light and corner of the car are smashed, but when the car emerges from the alley, the corner is intact.

Goldeneye mistake picture

Continuity mistake: At the start of the movie where Bond is fighting the man on the runaway plane, Bond jumps out of the plane with the pilot (they hit the motorcycle). In midair Bond has no gloves on and when he gets back on the motorcycle, he has black leather gloves on.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the film when Bond is cutting through the access hatch with the laser, you can clearly see that the laser is constantly shaking about yet the cutting is in a perfect line.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: After the American agent "delivers" the Cessna to James Bond and Natalia, they make several passes over the lake in Cuba. Then the plane is hit by a rocket. Right before they crash the plane, it becomes a different plane. The original one is white and maroon. The one that crashes is white and red. It happened too fast to check the N-Number or registration, but the second plane was an earlier model as well.

Continuity mistake: During the pursuit scene in St-Petersburg, two military trucks breaks a fence and fall in the water. The first one contains 2 passengers, but 3 are ejected from it and the second one contains 3 passengers and 2 are ejected from it. More strange, the one with 2 passenger was behind the one with 3 passengers some shots before. I don't see why they would chase between them.

Dr Wilson

Continuity mistake: When Bond exits the chemical factory, his hair is noticeably shorter than it was when he was inside. Apparently, the conveyor belt tunnel had a barber.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: Opening sequence when Bond bungees off the dam, you see him lay down the bungee cord he uses, it appears to be no more than a couple meters of cord. Seconds later there is a shot of the dam itself, panning upwards from the bottom. The dam appears to be several hundred meters high, not a chance that tiny cord is enough.

Timothy Conard

Continuity mistake: When Bond and Natalya fly over the artificial lake, a missile is fired from within the lake. Where did this missile come from? Once the lake has been drained and the dish emerges there is no submarine stranded there nor can you see a missile battery.

Goldeneye mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene when 007 is in Monaco, he takes a photo of the admiral and his female company. When he is calibrating the camera its to one eye. In the other shot he has the camera to the other eye.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Bond in the tank has caught up with the train [hard as that is to believe] they show Bond firing a shot at the train. After the shot is fired they show Bond jump out of the tank and run off screen. Approximately 4-10 seconds later they show Bond hiding by the sides of the tracks as the train crashes into the tank, but he appears to be roughly 200 yards or so down the track. I had no idea that Bond could run that fast. Bond also did not seem winded as he entered the cabin of the engine.

Continuity mistake: When Bond is flying the plane (after freefalling from the motorcycle) over the chemical plant at the beginning of the film, the people who have been chasing him down the runway have vanished.

Goldeneye mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning just before the radar station is destroyed you can see over Natalya's shoulder on the large map, that the Goldeneye is somewhere over northern Russia, the very next frame shows the map with the Goldeneye marker flashing because it is over its target in west Russia.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: In the middle of the tank chase, you see that part of one tank's front left flap (or whatever you call the thing hanging in the very front of the tank between its tracks) went missing - an obvious result of ramming through buildings, etc. In all subsequent tank shots, though, you see the flap in perfect condition again.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: In the bottling room scene, 006 holds his gun hanging down in his left hand. Then after he activates the alarm, it shows the gun in his right hand.

Goldeneye mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When James is chasing Natalia and Ouromov through St. Petersburg in the tank, James crashes through various walls and statues, but when he is looking down at Xenia, Ouromov, and Natalia as they get on the train, the tank is wiped clean with no sign of bricks, Perrier cans, or any other debris.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie, when Bond is racing Xenia's Ferrari, Xenia has to pull of the road to avoid a tractor or something. She then starts to spin, and it looks like she has managed to correct it, and the car starts to spin again. In the next shot, you see her pull out on the road again, but from the angle of the car and speed in the last shot, there is no way she could have corrected that spin and get back on the road that fast, since there is absolutely no traction on grass.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the movie Bond is in the car chase with the Ferrari. Throughout the chase the interior of the Ferrari is beige. Later, when he pulls up to the hotel and looks at the "same" Ferrari, note that the interior is black.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When the Cuban radio dish is being emptied, there is a shot of the last few feet being drained, but the rest of the dish (which had presumably just been emptied) is far too dry. This is due to reversing the film - still a mistake.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: One of the cars that gets crushed by a tank has an obvious dummy in it. The camera lingers on it to show it bouncing rigidly up again after being run over.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When the dish is draining out, the concrete is smooth, allowing all the water to run down the hole with no interference. Later, when Bond and Natalya are skidding down the dish, there is a little ledge around the hole that stops them falling to their death.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When we first see the Goldeneye sattelite in space, the Earth turns in different directions from one shot to another.

xx:xx:xx

Dr Wilson

Continuity mistake: When Q demonstrates the pen grenade to Bond, he says that it will explode after four seconds, when you click three times. But when he tests the pen, it explodes one second earlier. And when Grishenko is clicking the pen and Bond throws it away at the control station in Cuba, it explodes two seconds later.

mr. vader

Continuity mistake: In the shot where Bond crashes through the window in the St. Petersburg barracks building, there is a clear blue sky above. Right after that, the sky is grey, and the ground views of the St. Petersburg obviously had no sun shining on anything.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: In the tank chase scene, if you look at the cars, you will see that the same cars keep cropping up throughout the entire chase.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When Bond lets go of Trevelyan on the antenna, he falls straight down and lands on the flat surface of the dish. However, he should've actually fallen into the large hole in the centre of the dish which collected all the water earlier. It's even shown directly below him as he falls.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When the dead admiral falls out of the closet on the boat the morning after Xenia kills him, and James Bond opens the closet door, as he's falling he has a straight face and eyes looking straight ahead, but after he lands and it shows his face, his eyes are looking upwards and he's grinning.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: After Bond finds the dead Admiral, he jumps off the yacht onto a smaller boat and speeds off towards shore, but he never unties the smaller boat from the yacht.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: In the interrogation room, Ouromov takes Bond's gun and shoots Defense Minister Mishkin. While the gun is clearly aimed between Mishkin's eyes, he clutches his throat as he falls.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When 007 and Natalia are in the plane flying over the pond and looking for the dish, Bond says "Maybe Wade was right. There is no dish." As he is saying this you can see that they are leaving the pond behind. This is obvious as you can see the trees on the same side they are flying over. Yet the missile shoots out of the pond and hits the wing while the plane is over the pond. There would not have been enough time to turn the plane round and go over the pond again.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When 007 escapes from Ourumov, he shoots dead several Russian soldiers (two of them from the floor), jumps through a window, and smashes through numerous walls in the tank, yet his suit when he gets into Trevelyan's train is perfectly dry-cleaned and unblemished.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Bond is escaping from the archives hall with Natalya, he jumps through a window. In the interior shot, his head breaks through the main semicircle crossbar of the window. When the shot switches to outside, the crossbar is intact along with the glass above it. After Bond's recovered, the window is visible in the top left corner and the top semicircle of glass is not there.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When the Mig is falling on the antenna, it goes straight to it at a steep angle, but in the next shot, it passes through another building before and at a different angle.

xx:xx:xx

Dr Wilson

Continuity mistake: When Bond is racing Xenia at the beginning of the film, the rear Ferrari 355 badge is in one scene there, in the next missing.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When Bond and Natalya are being chased through the library by Orumov and his soldiers, Bond pulls out his belt and activates the piton with the high tensile cable. It goes into the wall just above the arched window. Before the camera angle changes to show the point of contact with the window, Bond is facing forward. As he hits the window he is suddenly facing backwards. Then as he exits the window, the camera outside shows him to be facing forwards again.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: Xenia is squeezed to death in a tree. The tree seems to change height. When the helicopter is falling and dragging Xenia, she is lifted up towards a very tall tree. When they look again at her after she dies, the tree is extremely short and her legs are no more than a meter away from the ground.

Michalos

Continuity mistake: In the tank chase scene Ourmarov tells the driver to go left. The tank then turns left as well. Camera changes and the tank turns again.

A Demon

Continuity mistake: When the tank has driven down the tunnel, it emerges and destroys a good section of the building, including a window. When the trucks come through a few seconds later the damage is a lot less and the window has reappeared.

Continuity mistake: When Bond throws his gun on the bench in the sauna, the barrel is facing away from the towel. When Bond goes to get it a few moments later and Ontopov attacks him, the barrel is now facing the towel.

Continuity mistake: When Q goes to pick up the plane ticket off the X-ray document scanner, the envelope is perched on the lip of the tray. When the camera cuts to an extreme close up the envelope is flat on the tray.

xx:xx:xx

A Demon

Continuity mistake: When we see the band preforming in the square in St. Petersberg, there is a shot of them marching left to right. And by the band is a big crowd of people watching them. When the camera changes to Mishkin's office, the crowd has disappeared.

xx:xx:xx

A Demon

Continuity mistake: When the Naval officer is giving his speech about the Tiger helicopter, a row boat starts to pass the warship. Camera cuts and now this rowboat is about to start passing the warship again. This cannot be attributed to the change in angle.

xx:xx:xx

A Demon
Goldeneye mistake picture

Continuity mistake: As Bond drives over the jeeps and police cars one of the flaps on the tanks gets damaged. It is then back in one piece in the next shot. This is not to be confused with when one flap goes missing.

xx:xx:xx

A Demon

Continuity mistake: As Oumarov encounters the roadblock there is a silver car that breaks halfway out of a junction. When Oumarov goes past, this car has vanished.

Continuity mistake: In the tank chase it is made very clear Bond is stood through the hatch while driving, However in some shots, he's not visible, but appears an instant later.

xx:xx:xx

A Demon

Continuity mistake: When Bond is on the yacht and the guy in the red and blue striped shirt tries to attack him, he wraps a towel round the attacker's head, over the eyes. However when we see Bond throw the attacker the towel is now down round his neck.

Continuity mistake: When Bond is running after the plane, we see 2 motorcycles in front of the group of soldiers. We then see the whole runway from a long shot and the motorcycles are not in sight.

A Demon

Continuity mistake: When James and Alec emerge from the hallway floor, James backs into the wall with a straight back and his pistol right by his face. Camera cuts and his body position and the position of the gun have changed.

Continuity mistake: When Xenia is crushed to death in the crotch of a tree by her safety harness, her head is looking down. When Bond and Natalya look at the dead Xenia after the helicopter explosion, her head is now looking up.

Trivia

When Bond is playing baccarat with Xenia, his last hand, and only winning hand against her, is two face cards (a king and a queen if I remember correctly) and a six. In baccarat, face cards and tens are worth 0 and cards under ten are worth their number. So, his cards are, in order, 0-0-6, the code number of his lost friend, Alec Trevelyan (006).
