Moonraker

Plot hole: For the shuttle to land at Drax's Amazon hideout he would need a very long runway, something that could easily be detected by satellite.

Plot hole: It would be impossible for Drax to decontaminate the laboratory and remove the equipment in Venice and return it to the room we see in the amount of time given.

Continuity mistake: When Bond shoots the man in the tree, he is wearing a hat. He is still wearing it as he falls, but when he is shown on the ground, it is nowhere to be seen.

Revealing mistake: During the pursuit in the Amazonian forest, one of Drax's boats jump. The persons in it are shown to be dummies because they smash so violently that a person couldn't survive that impact, and they stay bent after that.

Dr Wilson

Continuity mistake: When James Bond is falling from the airplane, his Jacket is attached to his pants but it wasn't when he was in the airplane.

Dr Wilson

Revealing mistake: When Drax is about to destroy the American shuttle, Bond, at the last minute leaks out all the gravity and everyone starts floating. In the next shot or two when you see Bond starting to float, a wire is visible that is used to make him hover.

[The staff of MI6 are watching a large screen that shows Bond and Dr. Goodhead making love in space.]
Minister: My god, what's Bond doing!?
Q: I think he's attempting re-entry, sir.

Trivia: The film's budget had been more than the first six Bond films added together, but Broccoli's gamble paid off. Upon release in the Summer of 1979, the film enjoyed huge success globally, and the film easily recouped its budget.
