Casino Royale

Revealing mistake: During the scene at the restaurant in Montenegro (actually filmed in the Czech Republic) you see a payphone with a Czech Telecom logo on it (itself a piece of history as these are all now rebranded O2). (01:57:50)

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.

Revealing mistake: Near the end of the movie when Bond shoots Mr. White in the leg, you can see that Mr. White is wearing knee-pads under his pants. (02:14:00)

Revealing mistake: When Bond tries to rescue Vesper from the sunken elevator you can see the stripes from the diving equipment on Vesper's face. (02:08:50)

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.

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.

Revealing mistake: Towards the beginning of the film, when Bond jumps off the van into the embassy, the patch of ground he lands on is obviously a landing mat with leaves and turf covering it.

Revealing mistake: Bond has just stormed the embassy and taken the bomb maker as a hostage. As they walk down a hallway, the bomb maker is shot in the leg. The squib that is planted under his trouser leg is outlined.

Revealing mistake: In the beginning of the film, when Bond is talking to Dryden, the wire used to flip the chair is visible leading from the chair, off screen.

Revealing mistake: When Bond is chasing Le Chiffre and Vesper in his Aston Martin, the shot pans as he drives round a corner from right to left. The sequence cuts to a slightly different camera angle where Bond appears to be driving around a different corner, but if you look closely it is the same corner as the previous shot, with Bond simply driving in the opposite direction, i.e. from left to right. (01:46:35)

Revealing mistake: In the torture scene, when we see a close-up of the chair while Le Chiffre hits Bond's testicles with a rope, the rope only hits the chair.

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)

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)

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.
