Latest Bond flick has at least six factual and continuity errorsNovember 11th, 2008 - 1:56 pm ICT by ANI
London, Nov 11 (ANI): It might have set box office on fire, but the latest James Bond adventure, Quantum of Solace, has six factual and continuity errors, critics have claimed.
The film, starring Daniel Craig as the British spy, is the 22nd Bond-based adventure and costs 100 million pounds, reports The Telegraph.
The movie, which raked in a humongous 24 million pounds in its first weekend, has at least six continuity and factual errors that critics claim, spoil the film.
One such error is visible in a chase scene in the movie where Bond is driving his Aston Martin and is being pursued by an Alfa Romeo. One car in the scene is shown with Italian plates with a Vauxhall Corsa badge and in Italy all Vauxhalls are rebadged as Opels.
Another flaw occurs on the registration plates for the Austrian vehiclesthey had the prefix code in the incorrect place.
One can see a similar mistake in a scene where Bond, apparently a qualified pilot, reads out the registration number of a plane as Golf Zero, instead of Golf Oscar.
Theres one scene in the Haiti hotel room, in which the sign on the door is written in a mixture of French and English, and it shouldve been in grammatically correct French.
In one more scene, Bond’’s wristwatch can bee seen in two different positions in the same shot, once with the face turned to the outside and once facing to the inside.
And finally, the blunder occurs when Bond arrives in the South American city of La Paz where the temperature is shown to be 46 degrees Fahrenheit (a chilly 7.8 degrees Celsius), which is quite unusual for the place.
But, despite of all the errors, distributor Columbia Pictures has claimed that Quantum of Solace has been placed at the top spot in all 60 of its foreign markets this weekend. (ANI)
