Timothy Dalton took over the role of 007 in 1987’s “The Living Daylights”. This time around, James Bond must find the link between Soviet defector, General Georgi Koskov and notorious arms dealer Brad Whitaker. His only link comes from concert cellist, Kara Milovy, who Bond initially catches trying to assassinate the General. 007 soon realizes that allies and enemies aren’t who they appear to be. Here are a few movie mistakes to look for in this action packed film.
· James Bond is next to the Ashton Martin after it hits the snow bank and he sets the self destruct button. The outside view of the driver’s side mirror shows that it’s still attached to the car but has been knocked down at an angle towards the car. But the front outer view of the vehicle, with the men chasing them in the background, shows the mirror is intact, pointing away from the car as it normally would.
· When James gets back to his room and Kara is playing her cello, she suggests they have a drink. After they toast, the right side view of Kara shows her holding her glass up, in front of her, near his chin. It cuts to a front view and the glass can’t be seen. After she asks “Did I get it right?”, the scene cuts back to the right side view and she’s holding the glass in front of her once again.
· CAUTION: May Contain Spoilers! After Bond has been captured and is unconscious in the ambulance transport at the airport, one of the guards opens the case with the heart in it. After they tell the guard that the heart must be kept absolutely sterile, a close-up view of the guard as he leans away from it shows Koskov standing just behind him with his left hand reaching under the right side of his doctor’s coat. It cuts to a rear view of the guard when he tells them to go and Koskov’s hand is down.
