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)
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: 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 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)
Continuity mistake: In the scene where the guy is gonna blow up the truck at Miami airport, James is caught by police and the guy looks at his phone. The time on the phone reads 2:13 yet when the guy puts the keyring on the truck and then looks at his phone again it still reads exactly the same time. (01:45:50)
Continuity mistake: At the end of the scene where Bond rolls the Aston Martin, during the wide shot just as the car finishes the last roll, the windshield is still on the car. In fact you can see the windshield fall back into a "normal" position. However, when the shot changes to the close-up of Bond in the car the windshield is no longer there. (01:46:40)
