Plot hole: Bond goes after Lupe after she leaves the casino table and they have quite a lengthy, hush-hush conversation. It's a casino and there are cameras everywhere. Certainly, this would have been brought to Sanchez' attention since he was already leery of Bond and possibly Lupe.Lynette Carrington
Continuity mistake: In the end of the movie when Bond and other driver drive by trucks on the road and Bond tries to bypass the other truck we can see from the rear view angle that number plate of Bond's truck is BSK118. When Bond and other driver drive side by side, we can see from the front view angle number plates of both trucks. Suddenly Bond has a truck which plate is BZX255 and other driver has a truck with BSK118 number plate. After the other truck has collided to the rock and when it's driver comes out, we can see part of the truck's number plate which has letter BZX2... Later we can see that Bond drives again the truck which number plate is BSK118. So trucks have changed during some phases. (01:58:55)
Continuity mistake: In the opening scenes, where Bond is winching down from the helicopter, some shots from the chopper show the winch cable going through a pulley. When he lands on the tail of the Sanchez's plane the winch cable is much bigger. Then, when the helicopter pulls up, the plane is being carried by the cargo hook line, under the belly of the chopper (rescue winches are normally only rated for 300kg). (00:06:30 - 00:07:15)
Continuity mistake: Slightly weird one, this. Just after Bond says "compliments of Sharky", Krest takes his gun out and fires at him. For some weird reason there's a jump cut a fraction of a second before he shoots - he pulls out the gun, aims, then jumps slightly to the right and fires. (00:41:10)Jon Sandys
Continuity mistake: On the Wavekrest when Krest is called to the bridge, to see "just a Manta-ray" it is dark outside. When Bond arrives on the Wavekrest minutes later however it is daytime the first time he looks outside. (00:36:30 - 00:40:20)
Revealing mistake: During the tanker chase scene, the characters are driving Kenworth W900B tanker trucks. The W900B series trucks have cab door latches located on the bottom, rearmost corner of the cab doors. After Bond forces another truck into the ditch, its driver can be seen climbing out of the wrecked truck. The door latch on this truck is now located just below the window. Kenworth stopped using this style of door latch in the early 1970's on the W900A, the W900B's predecessor. The truck in the ditch has been swapped out with an older W900A for the explosion shot.
Continuity mistake: The fire in the lab is started by Bond throwing a glass of burning gasoline on a table. A few seconds later we see that it is burning two separate places in the room. How did it jump? In the clip where Bond is placed on the conveyor, we see a small fire on the floor of the lab, but nowhere else. Nevertheless we hear an explosion and see black smoke on the outside. That fire spreads unrealistically fast.Jacob La Cour
Revealing mistake: When Ed Killifer is on the van leading Sanchez to jail, he hits a guard on the face with a shotgun, but the guard is already wounded before being hit.
