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...

Visible crew/equipment: When Bond is just about to dive of the dam, the camera has a view from over his shoulder. You can just about make out over on the far left a car park with film crew vans and trucks. There is also much further down the dam a crane with a camera on. (00:01:35)

Visible crew/equipment: When Wade delivers the plane, he hands Bond a bag from Q and looks around. When he does a light screen is reflected in his glasses. (01:31:40)

Visible crew/equipment: Throughout the film, but in particular near the dish in Cuba, the models of buildings are obvious with typical small flames and/or droplets of water (from the days of 'Earthquake') when they explode. (01:40:00)

Visible crew/equipment: At the scene where Alec Trevelyan and Bond are fighting on the antenna cradle, there is one shot (about 1 second in length) where you can see the face of the stunt double. This occurs just after Bond rolls down the stairs, and we see a shot of Trevelyan putting a new magazine in his gun. The double jumps over the edge of the platform, and then Brosnan is in the room with the huge chain drive thing that moves the antenna. (01:53:00)

Visible crew/equipment: In the pre-title sequence there is a shot just after Bond leaves the Russian facility while escaping.In the shot, there is a plane moving and at the background Bond is standing and aiming his gun at the plane. There the person appearing isn't Brosnan, he is a stunt double. The stunt double's face is visible on blu ray. He's noticeable even without stopping the movie. (00:08:20)

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. (01:12:20)

Trivia: The "dish" in "Cuba" isn't some prop designed for the film, nor is it in Cuba. It's actually the Arecibo Observatory, an antenna in Puerto Rico designed to look into space for radio waves and other signs of intelligent life.

Question: How did Alec survive being shot at the start only to return later in the film. It's something that I can't figure out, as James saw him get shot.

Chosen answer: The real answer, which I believe was explained better in the game or in special features. Regardless, I did hear, is that Ourumov wasn't aiming directly at Alec's head, but to the side and shot the ground behind him. But made it look like he shot him in the head. Alec would have felt the bullet whiz by him.

That makes more sense.

It has been a while since I watched the movie, and my copy is a VHS... but I believe if you watch very closely you can actually see the bullet hit the ground behind him with a tile breaking. I don't remember for sure if you can, but I seem to remember they did add that little effect.

Answer: He was shot with a blank cartridge. What that means is that the casing in the gun chamber didn't contain a live bullet; instead of killing him, the gun simply gave off a realistic flash that tricked Bond into thinking Alec had been shot. As explained later in the film, Alec's death was staged between himself and Ourumov.

Ourumov shot Alec and the Russian soldier with the same gun but, only the soldier was actually killed.

Wouldn't James know it was a blank round? Lack of blood for example?

Answer: But what about the Russian soldier who was nervous and fired at the gas tanks, only to be shot by Ourumov? Did he fake his death too?

That's a valid point. Ourumov never reloaded.
