Visible crew/equipment: This flub is virtually impossible to catch by the human eye - use slow-mo. When Bond jumps off the dam, they do a shot, following him along his descent down the ledge of the wall. In a shot only visible during three or four frames, but they catch a shot of the ledge before panning down, in which you can see the film crew watching on top, together with a van or two...

Revealing mistake: During the draining of the water in the dish, some shots show the water moving backwards. For instance, at a particular moment, masses of water jump UP, ark toward the opening, and fall in it. The most likely reason is that, during the filming, the special effects people took a shot of a replica of the dish FILLING with water, then edited it the other way, to show that the water was emptied from the dish.

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.

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.
