Revealing mistake: When Bond is in the space station, the American shuttle is being attacked by a laser array. Bond thwarts the attack by activating a switch which causes the space station to decelerate, whereby it loses its spin and artficial gravity. People and objects start to move violently with respect to the station itself as a result of this. We see Bond and the operator being jerked back from the operations console. However, there are 5 actors close behind them who remain standing in the same position and do not move at all.

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.

Revealing mistake: During the speed boat chase Jaws waves the 2nd boat past. The boat goes from right to left and the camera boat goes left to right - in the background you can see the wake from the camera boat. It's doing a 360 degree turn, completely different to the one Jaws is on.

Revealing mistake: When Bond stops to study the map at the beginning of the Amazon chase sequence, you can catch some brief glimpses of a black object floating in the water. This is actually the explosive charge used to simulate the initial mortar fire's impacts from his adversaries' boats. Keep a close eye on those 'shell impact' locations to spot them proper.

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.

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.
