Licence to Kill

Factual error: When the air hose on the truck is severed, the brakes release. In reality, on an air-braking system, if the air hose is severed, the brakes lock on, as a safety measure.

Factual error: The discharge from an electric eel doesn't make flashes of light or sparks in the water, as shown in this film. (00:30:00)

Factual error: A shotgun cannot make such a large hole in a wooden wall as it does in the bar where Bond meets Pam. A slug would make a single smaller hole, and pellets would make several small holes.

Factual error: At the casino in Isthmus City, Bond is asked to cut the deck. He does that physically - splitting the deck in two. No casino in the world allows the players to touch the cards. The cut is made by inserting a plastic card in the relevant place.

Continuity mistake: In the scene on the plane you see Bond hanging at the door on the right side of the plane, in the next shot you see the plane making a left turn, in the following shot Bond is still hanging on the right-side door. Shouldn't he have fallen into the plane ?
