Net pedants dismantle Quantum of Solace

Bolivian number plate experts move in for the kill

Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

They did it to Casino Royale and now the net pedants have moved with lightning speed to finger the howlers which blight latest Bond outing Quantum of Solace.

Yup, it's a bit of a continuity/fact bloodbath down at moviemistakes.com, where sharp-eyed critics have wasted no time in revealing, for example, that while "cars in Bolivia are required to carry both front and rear registration plates", in the film "hardly any of the cars shown have one".

It gets worse. Consider, if you dare, the fact that Bond "flies to the airport in Bregenz, Austria". Yup, you guessed it: There is no airport in Bregenz (our shocked incredulity italics, for the record).

And just in case you haven't quite got the message that Quantum of Solace is woefully lacking in the attention to detail department, try this for size: "When Bond follows a member of Quantum into bathroom to steal the earpiece, they are in the bathroom door on the right. When he exits and breaks off the door's handle, it is the handicapped WC on the left."

You can find the full list of outrages here. Be warned - it's not for the faint-hearted. ®
