Continuity mistake: When Bond is fighting the contact in the restroom at the beginning, he hits the guy's hand against the mirror and the gun goes flying off to the right. After Bond drowns him in the sink and lets him fall to the ground, the gun is right under the sink. (00:02:45)

Continuity mistake: In the Ugandan freedom fighter's hut, the commander is playing pinball when Le Chiffre arrives. His game score clicks over to 1049 as he hands the machine to a young boy. In the next shot of the boy playing the score is somewhere in the 500's only. (00:06:55)

Revealing mistake: When Bond runs up the crane arm you see three rows of black EZY Grip Anti-Slip tape on the crane arm so he doesn't kill himself running up it. (00:12:10)

Houma R L Dave

Continuity mistake: During the crane scene, Bond and Mollaka mysteriously appear on different sides of the crane, also the crane seems to constantly rearrange the bottom catwalk, putting it on the inside and outside of the crane. (00:13:30 - 00:14:30)

Spectre

Continuity mistake: While LeChiffre is playing poker on his yacht, his girlfriend Valenka comes on the yacht after swimming. As she enters the room, she is seen passing LeChiffre twice in a closeup and wide camera shot in front of table. (00:20:00)

Continuity mistake: During the first scene in M's flat the glass coffee table changes position. When we first see the coffee table it is square to the rug and fire place, however in the next shots it has been moved approximately 45 degrees to the right. (00:24:20)

Continuity mistake: In the surveillance room at the club in Bahamas there is a clock in the background on the wall that reads 12.16. In the second shot the clock suddenly changes to 12.21. (00:27:10)

Jacob La Cour

Other mistake: In order to watch the surveillance video in the security office at the Ocean Club, Bond is using a first generation Blu-Ray player. The player reacts quickly as he use it, but in reality, these players are very slow in reacting to these commands when they initialise the table of contents of the disk. Usually, any disk insertion to play takes a minimum of 30 seconds for the least encrypted disk on these players. (00:28:05)

nutcraker

Factual error: While Bond is watching the surveillance video in the security office at the Ocean Club he references the cell phone for the time the call was made. However, the phone also provides a geographic coordinate (59.47N 57.45W). These coordinates are located between Newfoundland Canada, and Greenland in the middle of the North Atlantic. This does not correlate to either where the call originated or where it was received. (00:28:45)

Continuity mistake: At the Poker game between Bond and Dimitrios the chips change place during shots. Most noticeable on Dimitrios' small stack (two black chip stacks and one green) in the overhead shots they are on the black line of the table carpet, in the shots from the sides, they are in between two black lines. The same is with Dimitrios' cards and his good luck token. (00:31:50)

Ronnie Bischof

Continuity mistake: After Bond has won the poker game at the Bahamas, he asks for the valet ticket for Dimitrios's car. The amount of liquid in Dimitrios's glass decreases between shots without him drinking any. (00:35:30)

Continuity mistake: During the scene in Miami at the Body World exhibit when Dimitri leaves the baggage tag for the second bomber the position of the baggage tag changes between shots. (00:41:20)

Factual error: In the scenes at Miami airport you see numerous CSA planes (Czech Airlines). Czech Airlines offer no direct flights to Miami, however Prague airport, where this scene was shot, is full of CSA planes. (00:44:50)

Continuity mistake: During the chase at Miami airport the gas truck gets shot at and the rear tires blow. When Bond slides the truck to a halt the tires are fully inflated again. (00:48:35 - 00:50:20)

Continuity mistake: During the Miami Airport chase, just after the tanker has been shot, it swerves across and hits one of the following police cars. At 48.44 you see the tanker from the front with one front wheel almost perpendicular to the axis of the truck whilst the other is relatively parallel. This indicates a broken track rod which would render the vehicle undrivable. (00:48:45)

Continuity mistake: When Bond enters his password in the casino, he enters 836547. He later gives the password as VESPER, which on an alpha-numeric keypad would be 837737. (01:07:55)

Casino Royale mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Bond sees Vesper sitting in the shower, after they have killed the two Ugandan rebels, the shower screen is completely clear (or may have been removed to give the shot more impact), but then has huge droplets on it when he joins her. (01:24:00)

Factual error: In the scene in which Bond is in his car after being poisoned, attempting to set up his defibrillator, the cardiac monitor at MI6 headquarters displays "ventricular tachycardia". The rapid beeping of the monitor makes this serious heart arrhythmia plausible, but the beeping then gradually slows, suggesting 2nd or 3rd degree heart block or approaching asystole (complete absence of heartbeat) rather than continued ventricular tachycardia or cardiac arrest (ventricular fibrillation). As tension mounts with his apparent impending death, the loose lead is reconnected, the defibrillator finally fires and he is saved. This sequence is not credible because defibrillation has no place in treating a slow heart rhythm, and certainly not heart block or asystole. The "correct" sequence of events should have been deterioration of ventricular tachycardia to ventricular fibrillation, and then the defibrillator shock to convert his heart back to a normal, life-saving rhythm. (01:33:05)

Continuity mistake: Just after Vesper has shocked James, the lead connecting the defibrillator to the chest pad can be seen to have come loose. When the camera cuts back to James, the lead has been reconnected. Note this is after the shock, not the disconnected lead that forms the drama. (01:33:50)

Trivia: In the film, Bond says to M, "So you want me to be half-monk, half-hitman". This is a reference to the character John Ballard (played by Daniel Craig) in the 1998 film "Elizabeth".

More trivia for Casino Royale

Question: Help me out if I'm wildly off: The Ugandan gangster attacks LeChiffre in his hotel, who Bond later kills. LeChiffre then continues with the game and panics when Mr. White demands the money. I was under the assumption that LeChiffre only owed money to the gangster and therefore needed to win the game to pay him back. Why does he continue with the game after the gangster is killed?

Chosen answer: Le Chiffre operates as the banker for Mr White's entire organisation. The Ugandan is only one of many individuals and groups for whom Le Chiffre provides financial services; killing him does little to solve the problem of the missing money. Plus there's the question of trust - if Le Chiffre can't keep the money safe, then Mr White's organisation have no use for him and, as we see in the movie, will readily eliminate him. Le Chiffre's desperate to recover the money to prove his trustworthiness and save his own life.
