Corrected entry: When Bond and Solange see each other on the beach, in the shot where Bond first comes out of the water (close up) there are several people in the background and a boat moving left of frame. However in the next wide shot of him everyone around him disappears and there is now a boat moving right of the frame. (00:30:30)
Corrected entry: When James and Vesper are lying on a deserted beach and their yacht is in the distance, how did they get to the beach? There is no dinghy tied up on the beach. They aren't naked. Did they put their clothes in plastic bags and swim? The yacht is quite far away. And when we see them sailing (motoring) into Venice, there is no dinghy trailing behind them or an inflated one lashed to the yacht.
Corrected entry: In the sinking house scene, during the shot of the house sinking just before Bond gets slashed across the chest, a blue screen can be seen briefly in the top right of the shot. This was put behind the model of the house during production. It would be hard to pass this off for sky as it is a very dark shade of blue. (02:07:00)
Corrected entry: When Bond starts to type his resignation letter on the boat in Venice he's wearing an Omega Planet Ocean watch with a black strap. When he finishes typing and closes the laptop he's wearing an Omega Seamaster with a silver strap - a completely different watch. (01:57:10)
Corrected entry: In the final fight, in the house in Venice, a bad guy shoots a nail gun at Bond. Nail guns use safety catches that prevent them from firing unless pressed firmly against a surface. Although this safety can (on some models) be pulled back to allow a nail to fire, this is never shown to be the case, and since the gun was picked up from a construction site it can't have been modified by the bad guys.SexyIrishLeprechaun
Corrected entry: During the first big poker game between Bond and Le Chiffre they are playing Texas Hold 'Em. Bond and Le Chiffre are the only players left in the game. During the final betting interval, Bond "calls" Le Chiffre, meaning he matches his bet. The dealer says to Le Chiffre, "Monsieur, you have been called. Showdown, please." Le Chiffre displays his cards, revealing a full house. Bond puts his cards face-down and says "Fold." You may not fold during a showdown. A player may not throw away his hand without showing it merely because a previous player has announced a higher-ranking hand; every player who is 'in on the call' must expose his full hand face up on the table in the showdown. You can only fold during the betting interval when it's your turn to bet.Krankor
Corrected entry: At the Miami airport, the bomber turns a key in something marked 'Emergency Sprinkler Override'. An 'override' would turn the sprinkler system off, not on. Sprinkler systems are usually filled with pressurized water. When a fire occurs, a lead link in a sprinkler head melts after reaching a designed temperature. This allows water to flow only through the specific sprinkler head(s) above the fire. You can turn an entire sprinkler system off by interrupting the flow of water into the system, but you can never turn an entire system 'on' with the flip of a switch or turn of a valve.
Corrected entry: in the scene where Bond wins the car from Dimitrios, before he bets everything the dealer just revealed the Turn (4th card), however, after the betting round is done and no other cards are dealt, she asks them to reveal their hands and the 5th community card is on the table (Dimitrios' 3rd King).
Corrected entry: At the end of the foot chase with Bond and the bomb maker, as the bomb maker runs into the embassy, the guard already has the bomb maker's papers in his hand and is talking on his radio getting some kind of confirmation, before the bomb maker has even stopped to hand him his papers.
Corrected entry: In casting Daniel Craig as the new James Bond, the filmmakers broke with the tradition, starting with Roger Moore, of using an actor who had previously been up for the role. (Sean Connery had been chosen over Moore, Moore over Timothy Dalton, and Dalton as a last-minute replacement for Pierce Brosnan.).
Corrected entry: When Bond and Vesper sail into Venice they are in a yacht with a tall mast that would never be able to make it up the Grand Canal to the Rialto market where we see them as it would never be able to pass under the bridges crossing the canal.
Corrected entry: When Vesper and Bond are in the Venice hotel room near the end of the film, we see Vesper get out of bed and see her get dressed - there is no bra visible as she does up her dress. Cut to a few minutes later after Bond has pulled her from the sinking building, and her wet dress reveals the outlines of a bra under the same dress we seen her put on earlier.Ryanbrynna
