24 Mistakes Found in Skyfall

The Telegraph Website has posted that fans have found 24 factual/continuity errors with the most recent Bond movie Skyfall.

The mistakes include the scene where Bond, played by Daniel Craig, drinks Macallan in M’s apartment. When he puts the bottle on the table, the label is facing away from the audience, in the next few scenes the label is towards the audience and then in the next shot, away from the audience again.

Later in the movie, Bond takes a radio from arch-enemy Silva, played by Javier Bardem, and puts it in his right pocket, but then a few shots later he takes it from his left pocket.

During the scenes on the London Underground, Bond gets on at Temple station and gets off at Westminster, but Embankment, the station in-between these two stops on the District line, is nowhere to be seen.

Other mistakes spotted include:”In the opening chase scene, the car that Bond and the girl are driving in crashes into the Audi and then into a market stall, and the windscreen remains intact. The next shot that shows the girl in the Landrover, the windscreen has completely cracked.”

“James Bond is seen driving down Whitehall in London. Behind him a number 38 bus is seen. However the 38 does not travel down or indeed particularly near Whitehall. This was probably done to show off the new Routemaster bus, which is currently only used on the 38 route.”

“When on the motorbike on the rooftops of Istanbul, Bond at first has no sunglasses on, then sunglasses on, then no sunglasses.”

“When Bond is fighting on top of the train at the beginning of the film, his footwear changes from black lace up shoes to black slip-on ankle boots.”
