Errors in geography 

During the opening boat chase, the route actually taken through London's Isle of Dogs does not match the route displayed on Bond's on-board computer map. Specifically: The map shows the route through West India Docks, but the chase is obviously through Millwall Inner and Outer Docks. Further, the boats come out of what is, in reality, a dead end.

Character error 

It is stated that the bomb traveling in the pipeline is traveling at 70 miles per hour and has to cover a distance of 106 miles. Bond states that this will take 78 minutes. To cover 106 miles at 70 miles per hour would actually take 91 minutes. However, Bond admits in GoldenEye that he was never good with numbers.

Elektra King claims to be of Azeri descent on her maternal side. Thus she thinks she is saving her cultural heritage by rerouting the pipeline around the church. But the church as proved by the priest is Russian orthodox and that is far removed from Azeri culture.

After Renard grasps Bond's shoulder and walks back, he says "Without further interruptions" you can see another soldier holding the AKS-74. The Colonel is holding a Makarov when he orders the terrorists back to the surface.

When they're looking at the computer model of Renard's head (just after the doctor says "medulla oblongata"), count the pings. The first two times we hear one, a slight pause, then 3 close together, with corresponding green pointers on the image, then a higher pitched one on the green box. However, the third time (after "than any normal man") there's no initial ping with pause, just the 3 close together. Then just as we're expecting the higher one we cut to a shot of M, and we hear another middle beep before the final one. The sequence starts again, we cut back to the model in the middle of it, and we get an extra beep again, plus see that the beeps are now completely out of sync with bits of the model being illuminated.

When Bond skis over the top of the para-hawk, and "slices" the parachute open, this scene is filled with errors. First of all, in the initial shot, his trajectory is way off, and he completely misses the parachute. Second of all, it cuts to a shot where the ski slices the parachute open, and the hole it makes is a long, wide hole. When it cuts to the next shot, there is only a very small, round hole in the chute, and the edge of the parachute is also frayed, despite Bond having done nothing to the edge of the parachute.

Renard's file states that the bullet is traveling through his 'Medulla Oblongata'. This is actually the part of the brain at the lower part of the brain stem (therefore towards the back and the furthest point down of the brain). When we see the 3D image of Renard's head and brain we can see that the bullet is actually traveling through the left side, at the front of the brain within the top portion of the brain, this section is actually the Frontal Lobe (or Cerebral Hemisphere)and nowhere near the Medulla Oblongata.

The notion that a submarine would have a smelting facility for shaping fuel rods is nonsense; refueling operations happen at port, less than a handful of times during the lifetime of the sub, not ad hoc underway. And where would they get the raw material for smelting? Also, a Victor III submarine has a VM-4P pressurized water reactor which cannot be opened and remain operating as shown as this lets out the water in the reactor vessel which is essential for it to function; the nuclear reaction stops when no water is present. Any operation such as depicted would scald, burn and heavily irradiate anyone trying, guaranteeing their immediate death.

It is extremely difficult to move a limb that is devoid of feeling, and a man who has no sensation anywhere in his body would need to learn how to move all over again; he would likely move very stiffly and awkwardly, and we don't see that.

A saw designed for cutting tree branches would have no success in cutting through steel (as shown in the destruction of Bond's BMW). With teeth so large to cut through steel would require an enduring substance unknown to mankind plus an extremely forceful propulsion.

King can't be a terribly good engineer. He's built his oil pipeline over a glacier. Glaciers flow. The pipeline would break within a year.

In the opening boat chase scene, when Bond takes the Q-boat ashore at high speed and hurtles through city streets, we see that his hands are still steering the Q-boat, even though there's no external means of steering the boat on dry land. We get a good look at the Q-boat's keel a couple of times, and it has no wheels nor other steering mechanism aside from its jet-ski nozzle, which would be useless for steering on dry land. Its twin rocket thrusters, which are both firing in the street sequence, provide only forward thrust. But, remarkably, the Q-boat manages to change direction by as much as 90° without losing momentum on dry land.

At Valentin's Caviar factory, one of the lumbering choppers cuts through Bond's car. It is obvious that saw blades cutting through metal cause a high volume of sparks. Yet as the saws cut, the car is simply split in half down the middle, and falls apart. This would have ignited the gas tank, and the car would have exploded. Not to mention all the modifications Q has made to the car, with rockets and other explosive goodies.

Bond submerges Q's 'fishing boat' in the opening chase scene in order to pass underneath a closed drawbridge. However, there is no windscreen on the boat; submerging the boat at that speed would cause tear the roof off completely, or cause the driver's compartment to act as a huge water scoop and create massive drag.

In the scene where James is being told why Robert Carlisle's character is so deadly (no pain etc.), they mention a specific part of the brain - Medulla Oblongata, which the character has a bullet travelling through. This is part of the brain is responsible for control of breathing and the heart - you can't survive a bullet there...

When Valentin takes Bond and Christmas into the FSB's headquarters in Istanbul, he explains "This used to be the KGB's headquarters in Istanbul. Now we call it the FSB: Federal Security Bureau. Different name, same friendly service," or something to that effect. However, the important part that Valentin flubs is that "FSB" is the *Russian* acronym transliterated into the Roman alphabet. What it really stands for is Federalnaya Sluzhba Bezopasnosti. If he'd said the name correctly in English, he would've said "Federal Security Service," the FSB's official English name and that appears on all of its translated literature. Had a character unfamiliar with the FSB (Mr. Bullion, Electra, Bond, Christmas, and possibly even Renard) made this same flub, it would've been understandable. However, Valentin knows the FSB so well that he can apparently just waltz into a foreign headquarters building with whoever he wants. If he knows them that well, he's flat out not going to make so simple a mistake.

After the explosion in the pipeline Christmas says: "the world's greatest terrorist running around with 6 kilos of plutonium." That tells us that each half of the plutonium ball weighs 6 kg. Seconds earlier she asks "Why leave this half" and pulls out the other half of the plutonium from her bag. She lifts it with the tip of her fingers as if the container weighs no more than a pound. You can definitely not lift 6 kg with such a casual hand movement, and no significant weight change is visible in the bag.

Further to another submitted mistake, your sense of touch, which Renard is supposed to have lost, is largely made possible by the parietal lobe which is located at the top back area of the brain. Not only is the bullet in Renard's head shown to be nowhere near this section it's also nowhere near the stated medulla oblongata section which is at the bottom of the brain.

Bond fires two torpedoes against the other speed boat on the Thames. They both hit, but in the next clip only the rear end of the boat is burning slightly. That must be some very weak torpedoes if a fiberglass boat is not completely destroyed by them.

In the scene where Zukovsky is almost drowning in caviar he lies very deep - only the top of his face above the surface. The depth of a body in a liquid depends on the proportions between the density of the body and the liquid. For example in the Dead Sea, with its high salt content, the water has a high density, so a body floats higher than in fresh water. Caviar must have a quite high density too - probably as high as the water in the Dead Sea, since it tastes quite salt too. So if a person was floating in caviar, he would not go as deep down as Zukovsky does in that scene. That looks more like how deep he would go in fresh water.

When the pipeline explodes it is clear during the explosion that it is mostly fire coming from the pipeline. There is no spray of earth or other debris. But afterwards Bond and Christmas are walking through a huge crater. Where (and when) did the earth get displaced, if it was not thrown up in the actual explosion?

In the scene where Bond is watching the screen showing the bomb going through the pipeline, he asks for the distance the bomb has to travel and how fast it is going. Bond is told the bomb "is 106 miles from the terminal, going 70 mph." Bond says, "We've got 78 minutes." Wrong. At 70 mph (1.17 miles a minute) it would take about 91 minutes to cover that distance.

When Bond is in the little boat and nosedives it underwater to avoid whatever it was he was avoiding, he appears to be travelling at fairly high speed. With no windshield (or such a small one), the force of the water hitting him in the face should have knocked his head off or at least broken his neck.

During the boat chase, the part when Bond jumps the boat through London Canoeing Club shed was filmed in the canal at Tobacco Wharf in London. This is not actually the home of the L.C.C. Across from this in real life is a road and then a dead end yet once Bond hits the road he finds himself in what appears to be Camden Fish market.

When the police burst into the Swiss banker's flat, it is the Ertzaintza who enters, with their traditional red caps. However, when Bond is walking away, the police cars that are going towards the crime scene belong to the Spanish National Police, which has no jurisdiction in the Basque Country.

In the final battle, Bond shoots up the dive controls of the submarine and it dives vertically down, straight into the bottom of the Bosporus. The sub is said to be a Victor-III that is about 100 meters long. The Bosporus around Istanbul, however, is only about 50 meters deep, so the rest of the sub would have stuck out of the water, not be fully submerged as shown.

Assuming - wrongly - that a rod of weapons grade plutonium probably can cause a meltdown in a reactor, while it wouldn't technically be an "explosion" it would still be a massive release of energy. So that's a fair enough word, especially when used a non-expert such as Bond.
