Casino Royale

New this month 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.

xx:xx:xx

New this month Correction: It's just the angles - the first shot is from Bond's left, and he's looking slightly over his shoulder towards Solange. The next shot where everyone vanishes is from straight on - the people around him are to the left, offscreen, and the boat moving right of frame we actually saw in the earlier shot, heading left to right, and it ends up in the right place.

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.

Correction: Often yachts are serviced by launch services in most large harbors. For a small fee like $5 a ride or $20 a day a small boat will pick up and drop off people on visiting yachts. Far more common really then using a small dinghy, especially if people are dressed up to go out for dinner etc.

Corrected entry: When Bond loses all his chips at the poker match, Felix tells Bond he will give him his chips to play with, but Felix is seen still playing later, which he shouldn't be; he doesn't have any chips.

kh1616

Correction: Leiter is offering to stake the five million for Bond's buy-back to return to the game after Vesper refused. He says at the time that he's almost out of chips and knows he can't beat Le Chiffre, but he thinks Bond can do it.

Captain Defenestrator

Corrected entry: This is the first Bond film in which both of the Bond girls are killed.

Cubs Fan

Correction: Jill and Tilly Masterson are both killed in "Goldfinger", Paula Caplan and Fiona Volpe are both killed in "Thunderball" and Naomi and Felucca are both killed in "The Spy Who Loved Me".

Corrected entry: When Bond shoots Mr White in the leg, he drops his mobile, but it's there, so why doesn't he pick it up and call someone - an ambulance, maybe - instead of crawling in agony to his front door?

kh1616

Correction: He's crawling for cover. What good is an ambulance, or anyone else, going to do him when he's obviously being shot at right that very moment? Wasting time uselessly fiddling with his phone would have been the stupidity.

Phixius

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.

xx:xx:xx

Correction: The peek of blue in the corner of the described shot is consistent with the sky colour in the preceding shots of the building. It seems to be a dark sky-blue, far from the bright pure blue used for 'blue screen' shots.

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.

xx:xx:xx

Correction: If you watch the blu-ray version closely you can actually see that the watch strap is metallic throughout the entire scene, it looks black because the shiny omega bracelet is reflecting the laptop/water/his leg.

Spectre

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

Correction: Not all nail guns have these safety features. At least in Holland these are available, and so presumably also in Venice, which is also in Europe.

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

Correction: This is simply not true. The rules allow a player to "muck" his or her hand at anytime, even after calling. If a player wants to muck his hand, he can announce he folds, as Bond did. Rules do allow for a player to see the mucked hand of someone involved in a showdown, but Le Chiffre did not ask. There was no Texas Hold 'Em rule violation and no mistake.

Bishop73

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.

Correction: "Sprinkler systems are always filled with pressurized water" - Not true. Fire Sprinkler Systems are primarily comprised of two designs, dry and wet systems. Fire sprinklers can be automatic or open orifice. Automatic fire sprinklers operate at a predetermined temperature. Open orifice sprinklers are only used in water spray systems or deluge sprinklers systems. Only the open orifice types go off all at once, and then only when they are of arranged in a "deluge" system. The open orifice sprinkler is identical to the normal, automatic sprinkler, except the automatic heat-sensitive element is removed. Fire is detected outside the sprinkler itself. So, in a nutshell, what happened in the movie is very possible.

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).

Correction: Actually, the flop was 9, 3, A, then the scene shows the dealer puts down a 7 on the turn, Bond checks and Dimitrios bets 5 thousand, Bond calls then the dealer throws the K out on the river, then they both shove their chips. The scene was accurate.

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.

Correction: There's nothing to indicate that those are indeed the bomb maker's papers that the guard is holding. He may have been dealing with someone else as the bomb maker approached.

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.).

Correction: In Roger Moore's book he wrote that he was never approached to play Bond in Dr. No.

Greenman37

Corrected entry: On the last hand of the poker game, since Le Chiffre called Bond on his All In, Bond should have showed his cards first. But for the drama, Bond showing last was best suited .

molsonmonster

Correction: 'Should have' but not necessarily 'must have.' I play live poker quite a lot and I can say that some of the arrogant players love to show their cards 'out of turn' because they think that they have the winning cards. Sometimes the dealer can make a mistake also, prompting the wrong player to reveal their cards.

XIII

Corrected entry: In the scene where Bond goes after Le Chiffre in the casino intending to stab him he first picks up just a normal table knife. When he encounters Felix on the stairs it has switched to a steak knife.

Correction: It's a steak knife with a serrated single-bevel edge. The side of the blade with the bevel and serrations is face down on the table making it appear to be a common table knife, whereas the serrations are visible while Bond has it against his wrist.

Phixius

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.

Correction: Not sure what the error is here. The submitter is saying that the boat cannot possibly be there because of the height of its mast. But the boat is indeed at the location where the scene is being filmed; so either the fictional Bond or the real life filmmakers found a way to get it there - even if the mast had to be removed to do it.

BocaDavie

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

Correction: It's not a bra, it's just some support "built-in" to the dress. Many womens' garments have these.

Phixius

Corrected entry: When Bond has the cardiac arrest M is watching the number of his pulse and we hear the beeps. We hear the pulse slow down, but the number just changes from 134 to 133. The sound of the beeps indicate a pulse much slower than that - maybe only around 60.

Jacob La Cour

Correction: It is possible to have an electrical rate of 133 (what M sees), but it only corresponds to an actual (felt) rate of 60. There are a lot of technical, medical reasons for this, but I have seen it many times in my patients that are about to code.

shortdanzr

Corrected entry: In an early scene, the setting is listed as Uganda. As Bond chases his target through a construction site, one can see the ocean. Uganda is a land locked nation.

georg

Correction: These are completely different scenes. The Ugandan scenes involve Le Chiffre visiting the terrorists to discuss handling their money. The sequence with Bond chasing the bomb-maker across the construction site takes place in Madagascar, which is an island.

Tailkinker

Corrected entry: Someone with Bond's training should know that to resuscitate a drowning victim, you first have to force the water from their lungs. Second, to perform CPR properly, you must tilt the head back, or you will just fill the stomach with air.

wizard_of_gore

Correction: There is nothing in the American Red Cross CPR guidelines about forcing water from the lungs of a drowning victim. No matter what the circumstances are you check for respirations first; if they are absent then you give two deep breaths, then check for a pulse. Bond does not do a completely proper head-tilt before administering the breaths, but the guidelines also specify that you do not need to overextend (reposition) the head if you see the chest rise when giving ventillations. And minor deviations from proper CPR procedures could be caused by how distraught Bond was at the time. My job includes giving CPR instructions to people over the phone; it is much more difficult when the caller is trying to resuscitate a loved one.

BocaDavie

Corrected entry: Mathis is keeping an extremely close watch on the chips; when everyone is "all in" at the end of the game Mathis tells Vesper that there is 115 million in the pot. At the hospital Mendel explains to Bond and Vesper that he is rushing because "120 million is a lot of money. The extra $5 million can't be the extra cash Bond had access to, because Vesper didn't allow it to be used.

Correction: The extra 5 million was the amount Bond had that would not have actually been at risk. Had he lost, he would have had $5 mil left to try and recover, but with LeChiffre having $115 mil, he may as well have been all in. However, Bond's final count would be the 115 of the pot, plus the extra 5 not at risk.

Corrected entry: Why did Bond's female assistant refuse to give him another $5 million after he lost the first $10 million? I thought she would do anything to save her kidnapped boyfriend.

Correction: This is a question, not a mistake - please remember there is a separate area for addressing questions. As for Vesper "doing anything to save her boyfriend", this is never stated anywhere in the film, and it seems entirely in character for her to refuse to provide Bond with additional funds when she's convinced that he's too reckless not to lose it to Le Chiffre and give the terrorists even more money.

Tailkinker

Corrected entry: In the scene in the collapsing house in Venice, there is a moment where Bond rips an electricity cable out of a junction box and electrocutes a baddie. However, as Bond is holding the guy's shoulder while he electrocutes him, he should also be electrocuted.

Correction: Bond actually holds the baddie from the shoulder, rips the electric cable, and as he's about to electrocute him, he releases his hand from the baddie.

Corrected entry: In the Miami Science Museum, Bond stabs Dimitrios in the side with a knife, killing him instantly. No one would die so quickly from such a wound, especially someone strong enough to hold their own against 007. Even a severe laceration to the liver (the area where Dimitrios is stabbed) would take minutes to bleed out. Listed as trivia only because the Bond mythology is replete with instantaneous deaths; villains don't get to die slowly.

BocaDavie

Correction: As you point out, villians die fast and quick deaths and there is nothing rare about it. Deaths in many Hollywood films are altered primarily for ratings. For example someone dying with blood everywhere and having it slow and painful will get a much higher rating than someone being shot with a silencer and almost no blood being spilled.

Lummie

Corrected entry: The prototype airplane featured in the Miami airport sequence was a cosmetically modified 747. It was originally delivered to British Airways in 1980, and was retired from service in 2005. The unique quad engine arrangement was a physical mock-up; the stretched upper deck was digitized. Following filming, the airplane was dismantled.

Correction: The plane was not taken apart. It can be seen in nearly any recent episode of Top Gear. Its parked behind the race track.

Corrected entry: During the poker games as usual the gamblers say: "check", meaning they pass the opportunity to bet to the next person. However, in the Polish cinema translation the subtitles say "czekam" instead of "sprawdzam", which is the word which should be used. "Czekam" means "I'm waiting" - while it sounds similar to "check", it makes no sense in the context of the game.

xx:xx:xx

Correction: Not really, "check" just means that you are going to wait and see what the other players do, since if one of them bets, you have to call, raise or fold. "I'm waiting" would be a perfectly valid interpretation.

Grumpy Scot

Corrected entry: When Bond is chasing the bomb maker at the construction site, why did he bother chasing him up to the top of the building? Wouldn't it have been better to just wait on the ground until he came down?

Correction: No. From the top he could quickly exit to any side, given his proven agility and prowess, leaving Bond scrambling to circumvent the entire site and risk losing him completely. Also, Bond needed the message he'd received on the cell phone. Give him a break from the chase and he'd have time to consider deleting the message after committing it to memory.

Phixius

Corrected entry: At the end of the poker game in Bahamas, Bond gives the opportunity to the other player to get his money back by accepting his car as a bet. Then the car keys are placed on the pot. Bond wins the hand, and before leaving the table, asks for the valet parking ticket, which is handed to him. If the car was on valet parking, the other player shouldn't have been able to provide the car keys at that moment.

Correction: It's not unheard of for people to carry a second key on a different chain with them in case they get locked out or if they want to leave the car running or a number of reasons. I do it.

Captain Defenestrator

Corrected entry: In the poker hand between Dimitrios and Bond, the dealer announces that Bond has won with "trip aces." In fact, he has won with "a set of aces." A set means that the player has been dealt a pair, then flops a third to make three of a kind. Trips means that the player has not been dealt a pair, but the flop brings two more of the same kind to make three of a kind. It is not an uncommon error in terminology.

Correction: If it's "not an uncommon error", then this is a character mistake.

Twotall

Corrected entry: Since the casino still had all the winnings of Bond, torturing Bond for the password would not help Le Chiffre get the money. The casino would need to have Bond enter the password and she would need to enter the bank account number. If they were both dead, the casino would not turn over the money to anyone else. Even if Le Chiffre were able to convince the casino that he was entering Bond's password, they would not want the money in the account number that Vespa was supposed to provide, they would want to use their own.

Correction: They get the password out of Bond and use it to release the money into his nominated account. Then Vesper, who you may recall turns out to be on Le Chiffre's side, goes to the bank, withdraws the money from the account in question, which she has access to in her role as a treasury agent tasked with keeping an eye on the money, and gives it to them. Which is exactly what she ultimately does towards the end of the film.

Tailkinker

Corrected entry: "M" pronounces Le Chiffre's name differently throughout the movie. When she is briefing Bond on him, she pronounces it "lay-SHIF", which is exactly how other characters in the movie pronounce it from then on on. Yet, later on "M" says "lay-SHIF-ra". It is not likely that one person would have two randomly different pronunciations of the same person's name.

Correction: Hardly "randomly" different. In any case, the fact that Judi Densch pronounces it two different ways kinda throws the idea that it's "not likely" out the window, doesn't it?

JC Fernandez

Corrected entry: When Bond crashes the Range Rover Sport at the Ocean Club, he goes straight to the security room where surely, the guards might be looking to see just who was driving the car that did all that damage after establishing that no white men park cars there for a living. Further, on later review of the security CD, why was Bond not questioned about the incident and perhaps encouraged to find alternative accommodation? After all, he was staying there in full view of the security staff. We might at least have seen him pull the CD for the moment in question and destroy or delete it to add credibility to his prolonged stay at the club.

Correction: Plenty of possible explanations. (1) Just because we didn't specifically see him destroy the CD, it doesn't automatically follow that he didn't. (2) We don't see what he does when leaving the car; he could simply have covered his face, then moved into a camera blind spot - he's not dressed particularly notably, so it would be hard to distinguish him from the others milling around. (3) Even if they could see what he looked like, the security guards aren't going to be looking among the guests. Think about it, somebody drives into the car park of an exclusive club and damages several expensive cars. They'd be expecting the culprit to run away, not go and check into an expensive beach front villa. (4) If they did identify him, he's just checked into an expensive villa so is clearly a person of considerable means; the management might choose to overlook the incident as a tantrum by a rich person insulted at being mistaken for a servant. (5) If they did identify him and approach him quietly about the matter, he could simply have paid for the damage out of whatever government fund he has available to him. That would be enough to close the incident; the management of the club are hardly going to want to bring criminal charges against a rich guest who would then never stay there again. Any one of these works as an explanation.

Tailkinker

Corrected entry: When Bond drinks the drugged Martini, he more or less bottoms-up the glass. But when he looks at the glass after feeling the drug it is at least half full.

Jacob La Cour

Correction: I've re-watched that scene, and Bond only takes a small sip.

Cubs Fan

Corrected entry: When Vesper lowers herself into the water while inside the elevator, the elevator car's "roof" is shown. As the car falls, the roof lifts completely away from the rest of the car, which would allow Bond quick and easy access. There are also many gaps in the bars and wire mesh that make up the elevator shaft that are large enough to easily allow both Bond and Vesper to pass through simultaneously. There's no reason Bond should have followed Vesper down from outside the shaft and attempted to break the elevator door open - he could have got to her from above, quickly and easily, whether she wanted him to or not.

xx:xx:xx

Phixius

Correction: The roof does not lift completely off - the roof structure is clearly still in place after the lift goes into the water. One side can be seen to flap upwards (although not come off) as it goes down the shaft, but the image is not clear enough to show what might be underneath - given the need to stand on the roof for maintenance on occasion, there is likely to be a strong support structure underneath that could easily block access. Bond's decision to attempt to gain access through the comparatively weak door structure makes good sense.

Tailkinker

Corrected entry: In the scene where Bond is chasing the bomb maker through the construction site, Bond jumps on a 'pneumatic lift' where he breaks off the gas pipe and the 'lift' falls. The 'lift' is seen to change colour from red to yellow twice as we cut between shots.

Correction: The carriage (the guardrails and bars surrounding the part where the worker stands) are always red, and the hydraulics (the part that lifts the carriage up and down) are always yellow.

Phixius

Corrected entry: When Bond is hunting the bomb terrorist at the beginning, they both cross a fence of a building site. At the bottom of the fence is a heap of sand. When the terrorist crosses, the heap approximately reaches the middle of the fence. When Bond crosses a second later, the heap is suddenly higher, although the bulldozer, that is dumping sand, doesn't reach to the fence. Maybe it was to make it a little more comfortable for Daniel Craig to roll over it.

xx:xx:xx

Correction: The difference in sand seems to be negligible at best. Even if there was some difference the different angles we see the sand makes it very difficult to compare shots.

Lummie

Corrected entry: When Vesper puts her red dress on in the hotel room in Venice she isn't wearing a bra. When Bond and her walk down the stairs, a bra strap is visible across her back.

Correction: In the shot of her walking down the stairs its difficult to make out whether its a bra. There is a bit of a bulge beneath her dress that might be the bra strap, but as I said its too difficult to make out whether its one or the other.

Lummie

Corrected entry: At the end of the scene in which James Bond sits in the shower comforting Vesper, there are shadows from the crew moving on the sink/counter in the left foreground.

Correction: I have viewed this scene a few times now and cannot see any crew moving. There is a bit of shadow that comes into the picture on the counter but I think that is caused by the camera panning out and the lighting of the scene.

Lummie

Corrected entry: When Bond is trying to climb onto the aviation fuel truck, his trouser leg rides up and you can see the white protective suit the stuntman is wearing under the costume.

Correction: I have looked through a large portion of this sequence and cannot seem to find the moment that you are talking about. There are a few instances where you can see white near his shoes but I took that for socks. Due to the length of the scene it might be worth adding the mistake's timecode or add to the description to point out when this happens so it can be verified.

Lummie

Corrected entry: Towards the end of the movie, Vesper goes to the bank and withdraws the 120 million dollars to deliver to Mr. White. Next we see her carrying a silver briefcase through the streets of Venice. Then after she's dead, Mr. White presumably fishes it out of the water, and we see him carry it off, but what is in it? Certainly not 120 million dollars or money of any denomination. It would never fit.

Correction: Bearer or corporate bonds would easily have fit into a briefcase of that size, even in the amount of 120 million dollars.

Twotall

Corrected entry: When Bond nearly misses running over Vesper on the highway, his car crashes and flips, leaving him injured. Yet, none of the airbags deploy.

Correction: Airbags deploy from a head-on collision. The car rolled and didn't hit anything. I've been a passenger in a car that rolled 3 times down an embankment and the air bags never deployed.

Nick Bylsma

Corrected entry: In the scene where the chase is taking place in the stair well, Bond, Vesper and the villain are fighting over control of a gun when it goes off. In a six foot by six foot stair well, a fired shot would ricochet off the walls several times and make an enormous sound, most likely striking someone and would not just stick in the wall as the sound indicated.

Correction: No, not necessarily. A bullet only ricochets when hitting a solid, hard surface at an oblique angle. If it goes fairly straight into the wall, it would not ricochet. Even a concrete wall, when hit fairly straight on, will absorb a bullet.

Corrected entry: In the scene at Miami Airport, Bond calls M to tell her about the possibility of a bomb going off at the airport. We are told in a previous scene that he has caught the last flight from Nassau to Miami. If he made this call at say 10pm in the US it would be 3am in the UK, yet both M and her assistant are in the office and the scene behind M reflects early evening in London.

Correction: On the other hand, if he made the call at say 0200, it would be 0500 in London, and early morning looks a lot like early evening. We aren't told the time, so can't judge. As for them being in an office, in a crisis situation, people working overtime is not unusual.

Corrected entry: In the final hand of the poker game, everybody is all-in and Bond wins. However, LeChiffre has a greater value of chips, meaning that Bond can only win from each player up the amount he put into the pot. Any money in excess of this should have gone back to Le Chiffre and the game continued between him and Bond. In the movie, Bond wins everything.

Correction: As this was a private game, they may have agreed to this ahead of time. I have played in private games where the standing rule is that if another player has more chips than you in an all in situation and you win, the other player's excess chips are forfeited to prevent the game from dragging on indefintely.

Jason Hoffman

Corrected entry: In the scene where M is briefing Bond in Nassau, she remarks that after the attacks of September 11 the CIA noticed a massive shorting of airline stocks. She remarks, "When the stocks hit bottom on 9/12, somebody made a fortune." M should know that the markets were closed on September 12. They did not reopen until Monday, September 17.

xx:xx:xx

Correction: Only the American markets were closed. European markets remained open for everyone to trade on. The CIA presumably watch more than just the NASDAQ, NYSE, AMEX and OTCBB?

Corrected entry: In the torture scene, LeChiffre tells Bond that he needs the account number from Vesper and he will easily get it by torturing her. However, before the torture scene, LeChiffre threw Vesper out of the car and onto the road whereupon Bond wrecks his car and is captured. It makes no sense for LeChiffre to risk Vesper's life by throwing her out onto the road in front of Bond's car until after he gets the account number from her. If Bond hits Vesper with the car, she's dead and the account number goes with her. It only makes sense for LeChiffre to cause Bond to crash by throwing Vesper onto the road if LeChiffre knows that Bond will miss her and crash; but of course there's no way for LeChiffre to know that.

Correction: That's only a mistake from our point of view earlier in the film - given Vesper's involvement, there's no way to be sure that she's not given him the number voluntarily already, meaning he doesn't actually need her alive (callous but true) so can take any risks with her he likes. Regardless at most it's a character mistake.

Jon Sandys

Corrected entry: When Bond is in the Bahamas, he is studying the MI6 files on Le Chiffre and his known associates on the computer. There is a spelling mistake in Le Chiffre's file - among other locations, it says "Bosni" in the "case loc" section instead of "Bosnia".

Correction: It's a just a typo. I make them all the time. Maybe a character mistake, but not a movie mistake.

Nick Bylsma

Corrected entry: On the train to Montenegro, Bond & Vesper are swaying or rocking with the train, but the wine on the table is not.

Correction: There is only one shot where the wine isn't moving, and that is when Bond and Vesper arn't swaying either, perfectly explainable by a straight and even track. In all other shots where we see wine or water they match the movements of the train.

Ronnie Bischof

Corrected entry: After James Bond has just won the poker game at Casino Royale, he tips the croupier with a £500,000 chip. In this game, the chips only have nominal value and cannot be cashed in as all the money is being held by the casino to be paid out on the entering of the winner's password. The chip is therefore worthless.

Correction: It's not at all unreasonable to think that the casino deducts handling fees and tips from the prize money. Pretty negligible amounts from 130 million dollars. It's also reasonable to think that the tip will be billed to Bond's account at the hotel, footed by MI6.

Grumpy Scot

Corrected entry: In the scene where Bond is being tortured by Le Chiffre, Le Chiffre dies and falls to the floor. The close-up shot of his face shows that the scar is on the right side whereas throughout the entire movie, his scarred eye is the left one.

Correction: Upon falling to the floor, Le Chiffre's left eye is not very easy to see as it is obscured by shadow and mostly out of the camera shot. However, his right eye is plainly visible and it is obviously not scarred, which is as it has been throughout the rest of the film.

Corrected entry: In the final poker showdown, the odds simply are not in favor of the 4 remaining players having such powerful hands. The odds of those four hands occurring simultaneously is 1 in 1,931,990,034,744,000 - or to put it another way, if every human on Earth was in a Texas Hold'em tournament at the same time, that would not happen until the 320 millionth hand was dealt. I know we have to suspend reality to enjoy the movie, but that is a bit much.

Correction: The odds are the same for any given four hands appearing simultaneously. Just because these happened to be good hands doesn't make it a plot hole.

Phixius

Corrected entry: In the "You Know My Name" intro sequence, there comes a point where the Seven of Hearts card flies up, to have two bullet holes in it to make 007. This is unlikely as the numbers and letters on most playing cards are marked in the top left corner, making it difficult to spell "007".

Correction: This is a stylized opening credits sequence, and is not meant to portray real life.

wizard_of_gore

Corrected entry: Le Chiffre is portrayed to suffer from asthma, and takes several puffs of an inhaler throughout the film, but he uses it improperly every time. He exhales or speaks directly after each use, which would expel the medication, making it useless and ineffective.

Correction: Character mistake if anything. Having asthma myself, but not requiring an inhaler, I wouldn't have a clue how to properly inhale the medication. If the patient is not shown properly how to use it, it's useless. On the other hand, he may forget, or depend on it psychologically rather than physically, meaning he uses the inhaler as a prop more than anything else.

Corrected entry: When Bond sends his resignation letter on the boat in Venice we see on the laptop a previous email spelt "stationary request" which is a misspell; it should be "stationery.".

Correction: Character mistake, and a very common one.

Corrected entry: The supposed police officers from Montenegro wear shirts with the Serbian flag, not the Montenegrin one.

Correction: A similar mistake has already been corrected - Montenegro only gained independence from Serbia in 2006. Hence, when the movie was being filmed, it would have been quite correct for the officers to be wearing the Serbian flag. Not really a mistake.

The Doctor

Corrected entry: At the end of the movie, M wonders if the discovery of Vesper's motives have now cleared Matthis' name. Matthis was never doubted until LeChiffre himself told Bond that "Matthis is my friend".

Correction: This was well after the case had been resolved - plenty of time for Bond to have reported to M that Mathis was a double agent - he even has Mathis arrested himself. Thus, her wondering if in fact he was innocent is a logical conclusion following the revelation of Vesper's motives.

The Doctor

Corrected entry: On the train on their way to Montenegro, Bond and Vesper discuss Bond's trustworthiness. Vesper points out that the Treasury is trusting him with millions of dollars. HM Treasury accountant speaking to MI6 agent - both English or at least British - would talk about pounds, not dollars.

Correction: No, we would not, and we do not. HM Treasury routinely speaks of transactions in foreign currencies. If Bond was issued cash or negotiable instruments in millions of US Dollars to fund his attempt to bankrupt Chiffre, then we would refer to his being trusted with just that - millions of dollars.

Corrected entry: The license plates of the cars in Montenegro have the old Yugoslav flag on them, instead of the Montenegrin one.

Correction: Depending on when this scene was filmed, it may still have been part of Serbia - Montonegro only voted for independence in early 2006.

Andy Benham

Corrected entry: When 007 returns to the table after Felix stakes his rebuy, a few hands have been played. In a poker tournament, you must rebuy immediately after you lose your money.

Jason Feng

Correction: There is a break in the action once Bond loses all his chips (which is why he runs into Felix, Felix would be at the table if the game was still going). There was plenty of time to rebuy before the action started up again.

Nick Bylsma

Corrected entry: On the side of the fuel truck that the terrorist is going to use to blow up the plane there's a label: JP4 .Commercial aircraft don't use JP4, they use JP5 or jet A. JP4 is used in military aircraft.

Correction: The US military stopped using JP4 in 1996. Since commercial jetliners today use a fuel known as Jet A, it doesn't really matter what's painted on the truck as it will contain Jet A, the correct fuel.

Grumpy Scot

Corrected entry: When Bond is chasing Mollaka on the tower crane, Mollaka fails to shoot Bond because he has run out of ammo; the pistol merely clicks. However, when a semiautomatic pistol is out of ammo, not only is the trigger mechanism disabled; more importantly, the slide locks back in the open position, making it obvious that the pistol cannot be fired.

Correction: It could have been a misfire, in that case the pistol would act exactly as it did in the movie.

pross79

Corrected entry: When poisoned with digoxin during the poker game Bond goes into a tachycardia and has a cardiac arrest. Digoxin would act to slow the heart rate and would not cause death by tachyarrhythmia as is the case in the movie.

Correction: An overdose of digoxin can cause different types of arrythmia. Tachycardia, is in fact one of the side effects that digoxin can cause.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Bond gives Vesper the kiss of life on top of the sunken building her chest does not inflate, showing he's not actually breathing into her.

Correction: The chest does not rise dramatically while mouth-to-mouth is being performed. If you blew hard enough to make it do so the air would just go into the stomach, where it would not do the patient any good. This scene is portrayed realistically.

Mistakes

In a scene towards the end of the movie where Bond and Vesper are lying on the beach, Bond has sand on his back through most of the scene. When they start to kiss, in the distant shot towards the end of the scene, he has no sand on his back at all.

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".
