Skyfall

Revealing mistake: When the train plummets into the basement, the windows never seem to smash or the tiniest bit crack and the paint on the train never seems to scratch the slightest bit whatsoever.

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: Bond and Silva are in a train with a number beginning in 96 and ending in 69 (96269, 96469 etc) However, near the end of this scene, the carriages have now become 96424 and 96224.

Deliberate mistake: In the chase through the tube station, Bond and Silva both slide down between the escalators. On the London Underground this area has hard vertical signs at regular intervals, precisely to prevent people sliding down.

More quotes from Skyfall


Question: Is there really any need for Silva to be captured and then escape to kill M? He knows when she's in court, he could just travel to London without going through being captured and escape, and considering it makes him completely unexpected, gives him more of a chance of succeeding.

Chosen answer: Silva's objective was not just to kill M - if it was, he could have blown up her office with her in it when he hacked into MI6 the first time. He wanted to humiliate and terrify her by showing he could get to her again and again, whatever measures were put in place to protect her.

Question: On Bond's obituary page M is typing up, after Bond's name is "C.M.G." and "R.N." What do these stand for?

Chosen answer: Companion of the Order of St. Michael and George and Royal Navy.

Captain Defenestrator

Question: During the 'interrogation' scene, where Bond plays the word association game, the interviewer says the word "Skyfall," which elicits a fairly negative response from Bond. At this point, the audience still doesn't know exactly what Skyfall is. My question is, now that we know, why did they use this word on Bond? Exactly what kind of reaction were they looking to get?

Chosen answer: The name Skyfall is the name of his parents estate in Scotland. Obviously this would be in his file. Given that the doctor is trying to determine Bond's psychological state, its very likely that he would try to ask about his childhood and the death of his parents. He was trying to see what Bond would do when asked about that part of his life. Bonds reaction to the word is probably the reason why the doctor puts 'unresolved childhood trauma' in his report.
