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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
Corrected entry: When Dominic leaves the airport, he is in a Rolls Royce Phantom. When he arrives, he is in a Jaguar.
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.
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.
Corrected entry: Bond requests the registry of the private jet for no apparent reason (the request is never answered).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Corrected entry: When Bond and the girl are plummeting earthward from the plane, they flail about and eventually get the parachute to open a couple of seconds before reaching the ground. In reality, a parachute opening some thirty feet (at most) from the ground would never slow your descent enough to allow them to survive, or at the very least without significant injuries.
Corrected entry: In the DC3 sequence, Bond lowers the undercarriage in one shot but in the next shot the undercarriage is up again.
Corrected entry: In the opening car chase, the Aston Martin and Alfa Romeo go round a pack of cars stuck in traffic. When the policeman uses his radio, you can see a blue Vauxhall Corsa in the background. You can see the badge on it and it is actually a Vauxhall Corsa with Italian number-plates, which is incorrect as Vauxhall cars are branded as Opel in continental Europe.UKFilmFan
Corrected entry: During the airborne chase, to escape certain demise in the canyon, Bond applied full power to both engines using the prop control levers (blue) and not the throttle set on the left of central quadrant.
Corrected entry: In the last scene in the desert he has motor oil in his trunk. But he was driving a Ford Edge Hydrogen with a fuel cell and this car does not need motor oil.
Corrected entry: Bond rolled the Aston Martin 7 1/2 times in the previous movie (Casino Royale), and the scenes showing the car immediately afterwards showed it completely totalled. He was never given another vehicle, specifically never given another Aston Martin DBS during the remainder of 'CR'. This movie begins mere moments after the conclusion of the last movie, and somehow Bond is driving the DBS again, with the injured Mr. White, taking him to be interrogated.
Corrected entry: At the end of the DC-3 scene, Bond pulls up the nose of the airplane (up to 90 degrees) in order to put more force on the belt that prevents the cargo from sliding to the back of the airplane. Eventually, the belt tears apart and the cargo slides to the back and falls off the airplane. According to Newton's laws (physics), this wouldn't happen. No matter how you fly the airplane, that belt would never experience a force stronger than the engines' maximum thrust. And this force was already applied during take-off, so the belt would have torn apart then, or not at all.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Bond gets into the lift escorted by two agents, after being ordered from M that he must return to the UK, the escort seen on the right as the door closes is different to the two escorts Bond fights within minutes later.
Corrected entry: When Bond is changing his clothes in the bathroom, he puts them in the sink where there is a movement sensor, which should have made the water turn on and soak all the clothes in the sink.
Corrected entry: When the hydrogen fuel cells explode, there is smoke. Burning hydrogen doesn't make smoke.
Corrected entry: When Agent Fields meets Bond & Mathis at the airport in La Paz, Bolivia, she claims to be from the Consulate. As a capital city La Paz actually has an Embassy, whereas Consulates are generally found in secondary cities.
Corrected entry: Bolivian city La Paz doesn't have an airport. The international airport is located in the neighbouring city of El Alto. Thus the airport's name is not La Paz, as it appears in the movie, but El Alto.
Corrected entry: During the last scene of the boat chase between Bond and the General's men, the number of chasers keeps changing - sometimes two men, sometimes only one man. The last boat should have two chasers in it, but when the boat crashes, there is only one.
Corrected entry: The city of La Paz, Bolivia is shown as a humid and hot city when the truth is, its elevation is 3,640 m (11,942 ft) and the average temperature is 8°C.
Corrected entry: When Bond walks into the hotel in Haiti, a notice can be seen on the inside of the door, giving instructions on what to do in case of fire in French and English. The French section is headed "EN CASE D'INCENDIE". The correct French for "in case of fire" is "en cas d'incendie". The French word "case" means various things but does not have the meaning "event" that the English word "case" does.
Corrected entry: In the opening car chase, a Land Rover Defender somehow catches up with an Alfa Romeo 159 and an Aston Martin, both being driven flat out uphill. No way a Defender could manage that.
