Revealing mistake: At the very start, when the people are out of the plane, and Bond hasn't got a parachute. Obviously, the stuntman would have a mini-parachute under his jacket. The wind blows Bond's jacket up for just a second, and you can see some of the mini-parachute.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Bond is in Drax's study with Miss Dufour, there is a shot where he appears to be photographing the documents just before gathering them and returning them to the safe. We see Bond's hands, but these hands do not hold the minicamera. The fingers are artfully folded to hide this.
Factual error: The station's gravity is turned on and off several times before and during the battle. The film establishes the gravity is on because the station is rotating. Bond and Holly turn off the gravity to prevent the Americans from being shot down. Then, after the American Marine shuttle docks, gravity is restored and is never seen being deactivated again. However, the station begins to take on serious damage from the battle and literally begins falling apart. Even setting aside the fact that the mass shifts would affect the station's ability to produce gravity, the external shots of the damaged station don't indicate it's even rotating anymore, but everyone inside is still able to move around as if gravity is still active up to the final destruction of the station.Vader47000
Continuity mistake: When Bond is in the speed boat he puts a white helmet on, cut to the front of the boat when the wings are deployed and the helmet is missing, then the long shot of the hand glider and the helmet is back, Bond is also dry despite getting soaking wet by the explosions.
Other mistake: When the shuttles dock we see a close up of one docking, on the side of the shuttle is the hatch which completely misses the docking arm but we hear the sound of it making contact.
Revealing mistake: During the boat chase in the jungle, in several of the front shots of Bond's boat you can see the wake from the camera boat in front of him.
