Quantum of Solace

Revealing mistake: In the roof top chase between Bond and Mitchell, it is obvious that both characters are wearing black running shoes, when in the previous scene both wore smart black suit shoes.

Revealing mistake: Bond hands a business card to a guy, then sits on his bike and, right before he grabs his cellphone, there's a man behind him who's supposed to be sweeping the street, but the broom isn't touching the floor, he's just mimicking or horsing around.

Revealing mistake: When 007 jumps his bike onto the boat you can see a ramp and flat landing in the scene. (00:29:23)

Revealing mistake: During the opening car chase the police shoot at the bad guy's car and the back window shatters, we then see a close up from the outside of the back window of the bad guy turning around and then returning fire, shooting out the back window. The back window is not shattered but does have bullet holes in it, this is so we can see the men inside the car returning fire.

Revealing mistake: At the end of the opening car chase Bond approaches the safe house. Just before the gates open white tyre marks are visible from previous takes, the white being chalk from the quarry.

Factual error: During the boat chase scene, Bond throws a grappling hook/anchor from the old boat he is driving onto the deck of the rubber boat "riding" his. The rubber boat is then violently yanked off of Bond's boat and crashes. This makes no sense. For the rubber boat to be yanked off that way, the other end of the anchor line would have to be tied to something stationary. However, the other end of the line is just lying in Bond's boat. There's even a shot of it sitting there.

Question: What was the purpose of visiting Vesper's boyfriend at the end of the movie? Was he involved? Because I don't remember anyone saying anything about that in the movie.

Answer: He's an operative of the Quantum organisation that Bond is up against who specialises in seducing women who can then be manipulated into helping their cause - in Vesper's case by pretending to be kidnapped to force her to cooperate. When Bond catches up with him, he's in the process of seducing another woman, no doubt to involve her in some scheme or other. Bond tells her the truth and she leaves, leaving Bond to deal with the Quantum agent.
