Corrected entry: When Bond is sitting on the beach, Natalya approaches from the side and he looks up at her at least once. Yet when she reaches him, suddenly she's in front of him, and he reacts as though he was completely unaware of her presence. (01:34:00)
Corrected entry: When Boris goes for a cigarette outside the satellite station, you can see the fake snow inside his mouth. If the snow were real, it would melt in his mouth. (00:29:30)
Corrected entry: When Bond visits Q to check on the latest gadgets, Q sits in a wheelchair with a below left knee plaster, which later on shoots a type of grenade into a dummy. Once Q has fired this missile in the very next shot he stands up from the wheelchair in trousers and shoes with not a sign of the whole plaster cast. (00:48:25)
Corrected entry: In the baccarat scene in Bond's last hand, Bond's 3rd card is a 6. The bank has 5 in its 2 dealt cards, and thus should then draw a 3rd card by baccarat rules, but the bank stands instead. Neither the bank nor player can choose to stand in baccarat. All plays are dictated by the cards.
Corrected entry: When Famke comes down on a rope from the helicopter near the dish in Cuba the rope hangs absolutely static near Bond when the camera has him in view. Excellent chopper pilot.
Corrected entry: Just before the unveiling of the Tiger helicopter, there is a shot of Bond jumping from the frigate onto a smaller boat. The stuntman jumps down and for a brief second recoils, as if hitting his groin. For the second that he is walking towards the front of the smaller boat, he can be seen wobbling weakly.
Corrected entry: The loco pulling the train is in fact a British Rail class 20 diesel disguised as a snowplough and not actually Russian at all.
Corrected entry: When the helicopter near the dish in Cuba crashes it pulls Famke away from Bond, as she is attached to the chopper by a rope. The tree breaks her movement and she dies. She should have been ripped to pieces or cut in half by the rope which after all had a helicopter attached to it.
Corrected entry: The beginning sequence set in Arkhangelsk, Russia, shows towering snow-capped mountains surrounding the chemical weapons facility. The Arkhangelsk region consists entirely of flat tundra.
Corrected entry: When Trevelyan is trying to kiss Natalie in the armoured train, the driver of the train spots the tank on tracks and beeps the beeper. But Trevelyan leaves Natalie and starts moving towards the front several milliseconds *before* the siren starts beeping.
Corrected entry: At one point, Bond and Natalia jump into the dried satellite basin and slide uncontrollably towards the centre to avoid gunfire from jungle soldiers. The friction encountered would have burned off their skin and clothes, leaving them for dead. The same happens when you slide along the road at high-speed, without leather, after coming off a motorbike.
Corrected entry: Trevelyan's plan is to rob vast sums of money from the banks of London, then use the Goldeneye satellite to trigger a massive financial meltdown. While this will indeed cover up the theft, such a catastrophic economic disaster will also, surely render his money worthless.
Corrected entry: If the second Goldeneye satellite blew up in space, surely it would've triggered the nuclear device within to blow up, causing the EMP surge anyway.
Corrected entry: At the end of the race with Xenia, the female evaluator tells James to "Stop this car at once." Seconds later, Bond uses the emergency brake to stop the car, but he uses his right hand. How is this possible if he is driving on the right side of the vehicle?
Corrected entry: Just before Bond jumps through the vent and knocks out the guy on the toilet, we have a bird's eve view of the toilet - and there's no toilet paper.. Furthermore, why did he bring his own paper when there's one hanging up? (perhaps the one hanging up was actually for toilet paper..) (00:02:40)
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).
