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: 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.

Franz Sanchez: SeƱor Bond, you got big cojones. You come here, to my place, without references, carrying a piece, throwing around a lot of money... but you should know something: nobody saw you come in, so nobody has to see you go out.

Trivia: When Sanchez is chasing Bond in the trucks, when he starts to shoot Bond with the Uzi, listen to the ricochet off the bullets. They sound like the James Bond theme tune.

Question: Is License To Kill the first Bond movie that isn't based on a novel or short story?

MikeH

Chosen answer: "License to Kill" is partly based on the novel "Live and Let Die" and the short story "Hilderbrand Rarity". However, it is the first Bond film not titled after a book. While "The Spy Who Loved Me" shares its name with a book, it was the first Bond film not based on a book (though subsequently, there was a novelization of the film.) "Goldeneye" is the first film not based on a book AND not titled after a book.
