Goldeneye

Other mistake: When the Goldeneye is first fired, watch as the planes collide and then explode, one at a time. The plane that blows up closest to the camera is the exact same explosion, debris and all, that occurs when the second satellite is destroyed at the end of the film in space. (00:39:00 - 01:57:00)

Other mistake: When Natalia is messaging Boris for the first time, the keys she is pressing are not what appears on screen. For example, watch closely and she hits 2 buttons at the same time which when you compare it to a keyboard is the letters "p" and ";" However, the ";" never appears on screen. (00:55:00)

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. (00:01:00)

Trivia: This was the first Bond film to have designed credits by Daniel Kleinman. The director loved the opening credits so much that Kleinman kept the job.

More trivia for Goldeneye

Question: If the opening scene was staged to get 007 to surrender, then it seems it was a terrible plan. Look how many Russians got killed by Bond and 006. It seems very awkward that the whole thing was staged. Why did Bond need to surrender? Why couldn't 006 just shoot him (besides the usual reason that 007 must be executed through an overly involved and escape-riddled plan) What would they do with him once he was captured? Too many questions and a weird scenario.

Answer: The plan was not to capture 007, it was to stage 006's death. Trevelyan's long-term goal was to steal money from the Bank of England and cover it up using the GoldenEye satellite - he presumably did not have time to run the Janus Syndicate and implement this very elaborate plan whilst serving as a full-time MI6 officer. In fact, it was probably the intention that Bond should escape and tell the British government that 006 had died a hero's death.
