Suggested correction: The driver was engulfed and killed by the explosion, as he wasn't able to get away in time. That's why we cannot see him, as the scene was supposed to point out that the driver didn't survive.

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.

Suggested correction: These men disappear because the explosion kills them. They are in a state of immobility and are unable to escape the explosion.

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)

Answer: Dalton was still contracted to play Bond in the next Bond film, Goldeneye. However, due to legal battles between MGM and EON productions, the film was delayed so long that Dalton simply lost interest and quit his role. He said afterwards in 2007 that, "I was supposed to make one more but it was cancelled because MGM and the film's producers got into a lawsuit which lasted for five years. After that, I didn't want to do it any more."
