Continuity mistake: When Bond is taking off with his Mini-Jet he nearly hits the jeeps and trucks that are chasing him. The landing gear is still down. After the cut you can see the scene from the other side and now the gear is suddenly up. There is no interruption between the two shots, not even the two or three seconds the gear takes to retract.
Continuity mistake: When we see Q fishing, the lighting is totally different from when he's seen from the back in the next clip. Also the bank rises close behind him when seen from the front, but in the next clip the camera position is further back. Those are not shot in the same place. (01:09:30)Jacob La Cour
Continuity mistake: When Bond and the twin fall off the train, Bond's movements do not make sense. In the first clip they are both moving away from the train. In the next clip they are rolling partly along the tracks, partly towards them. In the next clip Bond is rolling forward straight into the bushes. (01:40:25)Jacob La Cour
Continuity mistake: In the opening story, Bond flies in the small plane with a single jet engine. When the plane approaches the hangar to fly through it (the shot taken FROM the hangar towards the plane) you can see that the plane has TWO engines at the back.
Continuity mistake: When Bond's Mercedes is on the railroad tracks, it is hit head on by an oncoming train. As it is shown sailing in the air backwards, it is very clear that the drive-train has been removed. When the car is shown again, it is now sailing nose first as it hits the water.
Continuity mistake: During the rickshaw chase 30 minutes in, all external shots show that it has a clear plastic windscreen in front of the driver's face, but in all of the close up shots of the driver the camera is mounted on the rickshaw filming him and the windscreen is gone. (00:30:00 - 00:35:00)
Continuity mistake: When we see the Monsoon Palace from the lake, it is set very high on a barren brown mountain. But when Bond escapes on foot, he very quickly is in a dense and moist jungle - and walking out in a low-lying march land with a wide river. That can't be the same lake, since we don't see him running down a steep barren cliff-side.Jacob La Cour
Continuity mistake: The knife-thrower attempts to use a welder to temporarily blind Bond - we can see in that shot that it's an acetylene torch. However, in earlier shots when the welder is being used (off-camera), the sound is that of an arc welder.
