Corrected entry: During the car chase down the narrow street in the stone pit, the police truck chasing Bond drives into a house and completely destroys it. In the next shot the car falls off the edge of the street, but it's front is completely untouched. After completely destroying a house, it should at least have some dents and scratches.

Correction: This is simply not true, the car is damaged after hitting the structure. The most obvious part is the grill has been torn off.


Corrected entry: In the car chase scene at the beginning, the Italian Police Defender does not have its roof mounted lights as it rolls down the hill.

Correction: That's because they got broken off when it rolled onto the roof. The roof mounted lights are seen in the shot after hitting the wall and falling down until the first roll over. In one shot you can see where they had been mounted before breaking off.


Corrected entry: At the end of Casino Royale, 'M' is in London. At the beginning of Quantum Of Solace, supposedly 20 minutes after Casino Royale, she is in a sewer in Italy.


Correction: Incorrect. When we last see M in Casino Royale, Bond is talking to her from the boat that he has in Venice. We then see Bond in the final scene at Lake Como, which is about 150 miles away from Venice. Clearly a considerable amount of time has passed since they spoke, more than enough for M to have travelled to Italy along with her staff and the new Aston Martin that Bond uses in the opening chase sequence of Quantum of Solace.

Corrected entry: By the end of "Casino Royale" Bond's DBS was destroyed. The DBS was given to him merely to help him to appear to be a rich poker player. In the beginning of "Quantum" he has the car back in perfect condition. Does the British Government routinely hand out quarter-of-a-million-dollar supercars?

Correction: Because he does indeed have a new vehicle at the beginning of Quantum we will have to assume that the British Government did provide it for him. It is a convention of the series that Bond is provided with a new vehicle when one gets destroyed. And it is not a hand out; as Bond is often reminded in previous films, the vehicles and equipment are the property of the British Government.

Corrected entry: During the dogfight, Bond slows down and the smaller plane gets caught in the smoke from the engine, and comes close to stalling. But throughout that entire section the fighter pilot just carries on in the smoke, without firing a shot, despite being in a perfect firing position. This goes beyond a character decision - there's no reason for him not to shoot from that position and/or break off to a safer place, other than it gives Bond the chance to make him crash.

Correction: You can't shoot what you can't see. Besides, having flown in dense fog, similar to smoke, you are concentrating so much on flying the plane, watching the instruments to make sure you don't get inverted unintentionally, you don't think of anything else but flying.


Corrected entry: After Bond throws Mathis into the dustbin, the blood under Bond's tie is visible however in the next scene (after Bond says 'He wouldn't care') the blood is missing from the shirt.

Correction: The blood's only on the left of the tie as we look at it - after that shot Bond's jacket covers it.

Corrected entry: Early shots of the two black Ford Edge trucks show damage on the right front corner of one of them. Later, there is no damage to either vehicle.

Correction: What scene is this in? Please clarify.

Corrected entry: When Dominic leaves the airport, he is in a Rolls Royce Phantom. When he arrives, he is in a Jaguar.

Correction: No it's not, it's a Jaguar the whole time. There wasn't even a Phantom in that scene.


Corrected entry: When Bond and the Bolivian Secret Agent have crash landed on the dried up river bed, Bond offers her his jacket as she is cold. When the camera cuts to her the first time her hair is tucked under the right collar of the jacket, however all other shots show her hair is on top of the collar.

Correction: So she pulled it out off camera.

Corrected entry: In the underground riverbed as Bond climbs the rocks and discovers the giant reservoir, he is wearing shoes, barefoot, and wearing shoes again.

Correction: He is wearing shoes throughout the whole scene. The girl, however, is barefoot.


Corrected entry: Bond requests the registry of the private jet for no apparent reason (the request is never answered).

Correction: It's not answered onscreen, doesn't mean it wasn't answered at all.

Corrected entry: The film was obviously not shot in Bolivia. Neither the scenes of the airport nor the chase by the Bolivian policemen are filmed in Bolivia. La Paz is a big city and with all the modern facilities a big city has.

Correction: Many films are not shot where they claim to be set. Unless there is solid evidence on screen that it is not where they claim it to be (like, for example, a road-sign in the wrong language, or a readily identifiable landmark from the place where they actually filmed), this is not considered a mistake.

Corrected entry: In the final scene where 007 and Camille are battling against Greene, Medrano etc. there is a complete fire going on near them. In reality the temperature in fire would be about 800-1000 Celsius and no person can survive in this temperature this close in and for the amount of time.

Correction: The subjects are near the fire, not in it. It appears they used real fire in the movie; the actors survived (not sure what the submitter means by a "complete" fire).

Corrected entry: The film begins in Siena during their annual horse race, Palio di Siena, which takes place in mid-August every year. The film then goes to South America and it is still summer instead of winter.

Correction: Even though it's winter, the weather doesn't change drastically that close to the equator. I have a friend in Brazil. In summer the temperature averages high 20s C to 40s, in winter the average is 17C to 23C.

Corrected entry: At the hotel Greene kicks the axe and cuts his shoe and foot, however, later when Bond drops Greene in the middle of the desert and throws the can of motor oil at his feet, there is no hole in the shoe.

Correction: He in fact does have a slice in his shoe, some dried blood is also visible on the shoe.

Corrected entry: There's a scene where people fight and shoot guns inside a bar, and then Bond runs outside. There's a dog sleeping peacefully on the footpath right outside the bar. No dog would sleep through all that.

Correction: If the dog was deaf it might.


Corrected entry: The scene where Bond and Mathis are drinking at the bar onboard the plane is set on the Virgin Atlantic upper class section. However, the bar on the upper class sections are facing rearwards and not forwards. They do not show the Virgin Atlantic logo either.

Correction: So it is not a Virgin Atlantic plane, but a slightly different, privately owned and/or chartered plane. No mistake.


Corrected entry: When Bond is flying the old DC-3, he and the girl are both wearing headsets. The microphones are inches away from their mouths. As an aviator, I know that these mics only function when they are touching the mouth.

Correction: Horsefeathers. I also fly. The microphones attached do *not* need to be touching your lips, though they are clearer when they do. Usually I fly with my mic about an inch to an inch and a half away, and neither my co-pilot, nor ATC have difficulty hearing me when I speak.

Corrected entry: In the opening car chase, Bond's Aston Martin switches from silver to black.

Correction: No it's grey throughout the scene. Occasionally some paint gets scraped up to reveal silver underneath, or sunlight reflects on the surface so the black doesn't show, or it gets covered in parts by light colored dust/silt.

Corrected entry: When Bond follows a member of Quantum into bathroom to steal the earpiece, they are in the bathroom door on the right. When he exits and breaks off the door's handle, it is the handicapped WC on the left.

Correction: Not true. There is only one bathroom door and it has a handicapped sign on it.
