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.
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).

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.
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.

Continuity mistake: When Sanchez gets in the petrol tanker at the end the two drivers from the crashed one are in front of the one that's on fire. One is lying down, the other injured, but when the trailer blows up both men have disappeared.
Continuity mistake: While Bond attempts to pass a tanker during the chase scene, he forces another tanker into the ditch. In subsequent scenes, you can see the crashed truck appears to have had the engine removed and replaced with a dark object meant to simulate the appearance of an engine.
Continuity mistake: When Bond's unhooked tanker trailer collides with another tanker, you can see the tanker truck involved has pulled to the left side of the road with its wheels pointed left. The truck also appears to be intact through out the scene. During the second explosion, as Sanchez is escaping in another tanker, you can see the disabled tanker truck now has its wheels pointed to the right. The disabled tanker is also missing an exhaust stack and you can see daylight through a portion of the grill, indicating that its radiator and engine have been removed.
