Corrected entry: Prior to the boat chase, Bond is travelling up river, so he shouldn't wind up at the top of a waterfall.
Corrected entry: Why is Bond telling Dr. Goodhead about the laser on Drax's shuttle? Surely it would make more sense for her to reveal it's existence to him. After all, she has been working with Drax's firm for months, if not years - certainly long enough to learn the activation code for the targeting system, which she reveals to Bond when the first globe is spotted.Rog the Bodge
Corrected entry: In the Venice scene, Bond uses a hovercraft gondola. Such a vehicle should have air intakes for the lift fans in its bottom. So, it'd have sunk without some sort of inflatable pontoons, which it didn't possess. Also, when the vehicle rides on the streets, there's no sign of propeller or so - lift fans can only hover a vehicle, they can't push it forward.
Corrected entry: Bond and Dr. Holly Goodhead escape from a fiery death under a space shuttle by running through a convenient ventilation shaft. However, the flames from the shuttle exhaust would use up all the air in the shaft and suffocate them. That's if they haven't been killed by the fumes from the shuttle's solid fuel boosters or even killed by the sheer noise of the shuttle blasting off.
Corrected entry: When Bond is investigating the laboratory, he is interrupted by two scientists who come in so he hides in the room behind. Just then the vials fall to the ground emitting the deadly gas. The room Bond is hiding in is now sealed and the only way to get into that room is through the laboratory. Only one problem, how does Bond get out and not be discovered in the room. The room would be sealed until crew are able to come and clean it up, so Bond couldn't possibly get out.
Corrected entry: When Bond is in Rio watching the planes taking off through a telescope he follows its path only to be looking straight at Dr Goodhead, looking straight at him, ALSO through a telescope. Bond then takes about 5 steps towards Holly meaning that the plane must have passed close enough for them both to have jumped on.Paul Bessant
Corrected entry: After Bond and the guard have tumbled out of the ambulance in Rio, Dr. Goodhead, the CIA agent, is left alone in the van. She should be able to escape. She is still tied up, but she should be able to free herself in the same way that Bond did, especially as there is now no one to stop her. Why is she still a captive later on in the film?
Corrected entry: Why is the space station not visible from earth? Its got a radar jamming device so it can't be tracked by radar, but it hasent got a cloaking device. So you would still be able to see it with the naked eye from Earth. You could see MIR and the International Space Station.
Corrected entry: The female helicopter pilot is showing Bond the Drax empire from above. She is wearing a head-set. Next shot, her hair has been made up,and the head-set is gone.
Corrected entry: Laser beams have no kinetic energy. In the final battle scene, characters hit by lasers start spinning as if they were hit by an object.
Corrected entry: In the cable car scene you see Jaws bite the cable in half to stop the cable car, in the next scene you see Jaws climbing on to the other car. After that another villain starts the cable car, for some unknown reason both cars start to move, how is this possible if one of the cables has been bitten in half?
Corrected entry: A typical countdown to the launch of a space shuttle is 48 hours, given the numerous factors and preparations involved. The idea that the NASA could have one ready and launched in the ultra-brief time that it takes them (once they spot Drax's station on radar), or have one on standby in case something like this happened, is ludicrous.
Corrected entry: Bond and Goodhead escape from Jaws in the cable car by throwing a chain over the cable and sliding down. A bad guy in the control booth starts up the gears and the cable car is in pursuit, almost chatching up to Bond and forcing him and Goodhead to drop from the cable. Not possible; the cable car is attached to the moving cable and can only move as fast as it is pulled. No matter how fast that is, Bond is moving with the speed of the cable AND sliding down on the chain. There is no way the cable car could have overtaken him.
Corrected entry: At the monastery in Brazil, Q tells Bond that the liquid Bond wanted analyzed is a highly toxic nerve gas. Bond asks to "see the formula", and when he sees a molecular diagram, he says, "It's the chemical formula of a plant." A plant is an organism, not a molecule, and is no more likely to have a chemical formula than is a human being. Perhaps Bond only meant that the diagram showed the substance was organic?
Corrected entry: In space the space shuttles make a jet sound even though there is no sound in space. Even the ones leaving from the space station make this noise and although there might be some rumbling to be heard inside the space station, there wouldn't be anything else since there is no atmosphere for sound to travel through.Tobin OReilly
