Audio problem: When Bond is walking from one side of the chemical factory to the other behind the cage of gas tanks, we hear his footsteps with a clack sound which sounds like normal shoes on a concrete floor, not boots with a thick rubber sole. Also, the noise is out of sync with his actual footsteps. (00:07:10)

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. (01:20:50)

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. (00:24:00)

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. (00:04:40)

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. (01:40:00)

Revealing mistake: At the beginning when Bond is chasing the plane on the motorbike, in the last shot of Bond from behind before he goes over the cliff, the background shot of the mountains is a painting. Not only can you see the square sections on the wall, but some parts of the painting don't even match. (00:09:25)

Revealing mistake: When Bond takes Xenia off the hot coals and throws her onto the floor in the sauna, you can see that "Xenia" is a dummy. (01:03:40)

Revealing mistake: As Bond is chasing the car in the tank, as he makes a right turn, and the skid marks of a previous take are seen on the pavement. (01:22:05)

Movie Nut

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)

Revealing mistake: During the tank chase, there is an overhead shot of the tank sliding round a corner. In this shot you can see scars in the road from a previous take. (01:19:40)

Factual error: In the cemetery, Bond encounters Alex Trevelyan, whom he thought had been killed in the chemical plant explosion. One of Treyelvan's henchmen shoots Bond in the right side of his neck with a dart but in the very next scene, and for the remainder of the movie, Bond's neck shows no sign of having been punctured.

Revealing mistake: In the opening scene when Bond is shown running up to the spot from where he will bungee jump, it is clearly not Pierce Brosnan but his stunt double. (00:01:05)

Revealing mistake: During the shot where Bond and Alec are emerging from the hallway floor in the dam compound, watch the left wall. As Bond bumps against it after pulling out his pistol, it visibly flexes inwards and pops back out. A concrete wall capable of supporting the weight of a dam with industrial-grade pipes wouldn't flex in like that; it's quite a thin wooden set made up as such. (00:04:25)

Alex Montenegro

Revealing mistake: In the tank chase when the police cars and military jeeps crash on each other, just before the camera goes to view the tank, you can see the dummies in the police cars. (01:20:00)

Natalya Siminova: Do you destroy every vehicle you get into?
