Continuity mistake: 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.

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.

Factual error: If a house collapses into the waters of a Venice channel, after the collapse the water would be so murky that the under water visibility would be zero. But in the underwater scene the visibility is like that of a swimming pool.

Revealing mistake: When James Bond is supposedly in Montenegro, this was filmed in the Czech Republic - although they changed most of the signs they forgot some. When they are having a drink in the square there is a visible sign saying "Bily Kun" which means "White Horse" in Czech.

Continuity mistake: When Bond is being tortured in the seatless wicker chair, in one shot when you look at the right side of Bond's face the blood is running in an unbroken line down his face. The next shot where you see his face the blood has been smudged, but in the next shot, where you see his right cheek, the blood is running unbroken again. This happens a few times in this scene.

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.

Factual error: When James Bond is swimming underwater, trying desperately to save the trapped Vesper, if you look, he is constantly yelling and exhaling, sending bubbles from his mouth. The problem is that this continues almost constantly for at least a full minute. Nobody has the sort of lung capacity that enables them to expel that much air and still function underwater for that long.

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.

Continuity mistake: When Carlos the bomber goes through the security door at Miami airport, he enters the door from a brightly lit area.

Factual error: The name of the bank holding the winnings for the poker game is incorrrectly configured. The formulation of banks referencing cities in Switzerland (and Germany) are such that the name of the "Basel Bank" would actually be the "Basler Bank" in the same way that the "Zuerich Bank" would be "Zuercher Bank," usw. It is not a mistake that there is no such bank as the Basel Bank (because some bank would have to pay for such excellent product placement). However, there would never be a bank named Basel Bank in Switzerland. It would be named Basler Bank.

Revealing mistake: When Bond is chasing the terrorist through the construction site, a large pile of black pipes fall from the building. While they are falling and as they hit the ground they make all kinds of metallic clanging sounds, but when they hit the ground, you can see that they are really plastic PVC pipes, as several of the pipe ends break off and small pieces fly off them.

Continuity mistake: After the torture scene, just after La Chiffre says he will feed Bond his "parts" you hear a scream from within the ship and then a gunshot. The camera shot then focuses on the ship's hatch. The handle on this door has changed from when the rest of the group went into the ship. The handle is now pointed to the right in the open position instead of straight up as it was when they locked the door. Just before "Mr. White" comes out of the hatch, you can hear the sound of the handle moving to the open position without any movement of the handle.

Revealing mistake: When Bond is running up the crane to catch up with the bomb maker at the construction site there is traction tape, to help Daniel Craig keep his footing on the smooth metal surface, visible on the crane. It wasn't put there as though for the construction crew's use because it is only placed on the part of the crane that we actually see Bond running on.

Continuity mistake: During the scene inside the sinking building in Venice, at 2:10:40, there is a shot of one of the floors collapsing. This allows debris, tools, ropes, rags, etc, to fall through the floor. 22 seconds later (2:11:02) they show another scene of a floor collapsing. This is the same event but has been shot from a different angle. If you look carefully, the same black rags can be seen getting hung up on one of the boards as the debris falls.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where James is giving Vesper CPR, the water is seen churning and bubbling through the skylight, and flowing over the roof but the building was no longer sinking at that point so the water would've settled.

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.

Factual error: In one scene, Bond blows up a propane tank with his 9mm. But, the 9mm couldn't possibly puncture a tank like that. And, even if it could, the result wouldn't be explosive. It would let off a lot of gas, but that's it. You would need incendiary rounds to do anything remotely similar to what we see in the movie and a much bigger, higher velocity round. Mythbusters tested this scene and even an armor piercing 9mm round couldn't penetrate the tank, nor could incendiary rounds ignite it.

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.

Continuity mistake: When the house in Venice is collapsing - and it is shown from the outside - it moves quite fast. When it is shown from the inside it is not moving at all. Also the inside scenes last so long that based on the speed seen on the outside, the house would have been submerged long before the fight ends.

Other mistake: During the chase with the fuel truck at the Miami airport, Bond depresses the brakes, which apparently aren't working, and the truck rolls on. Two problems: first, after almost hitting the plane and sliding sideways, the brakes skid to a halt and you can hear air discharging from the brake system. Which brings up the second problem: since the truck is air brake equipped, there is no way it would have continued rolling if the brakes were malfunctioning. Part of the air brake system on all trucks since 1974, have a safety feature which "dynamite" the brakes if there is no air pressure in the system. This locks up the brakes with the spring brake system, making the truck stop. The truck was newer than 1974, meaning it would have had the CVSS safety braking system from the manufacturer, and would have skidded to a stop if there was no air in the system.

Deliberate mistake: On the roof of the sunken building, Bond tries CPR on Vesper, then quits when he realizes that she is dead and sits away from her body. Watch her right leg carefully when he returns to her body and cradles her in his arms - she flexes it upwards at the knee. Yes, I know that electrical impulses in a dead body can cause muscle movements, but this was obviously the actress involuntarily bracing herself from slipping on the slanted surface. Cut to Mr. White walking away with the money and when the camera returns to the roof, Vesper's leg is lying flat again.

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.

Factual error: When Bond retrieves the bombmakers's phone in Madagascar, he finds the Ellipsis message with a time code of 19:12. After tracing the origin of the message to the Ocean Club in the Bahamas, he finds the security footage of Demitrios sending the message at 19:12. But 19:12 is the local time for the Bahamas, as indicated on the surveillance tape and Demitrios' phone. Madagascar is 8 hours ahead, so the bombmaker's phone should have indicated the message was received at 3:12 a.m. Also, there is a lot of sunlight and activity going on for 3 in the morning.

Other mistake: When Bond retrieves Demetrios' phone, he finds the Ellipsis message he watched Demetrios send a few moments earlier. We know this must be the message he sent because it's the only message that comes up when Bond accesses the "Sent Messages" menu (indicated Demetrios deleted all prior messages). Yet the time stamp on this message is July 6 at 19:12, the same as the message sent to the bomb maker three days earlier (since the replacement bomber's phone says it's July 9). The idea that Demetrios actually hired two people for the bombing, and texted them both at the same time, doesn't make sense in the context of what the film establishes. He tells Le Chiffre he has someone else in mind to do the job, but he needs the particulars and payment. Someone already hired to do the job would already know what to do. Also, Bond watches Demetrios text the message, which is how he knows to check the phone, and the only message is Ellipsis sent to one number, which Bond later calls to find the new bomber on the street. Therefore, the timecode on the second Ellipsis message must be a mistake.

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.
