Other mistake: When Eomer is mounting his horse after giving Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli the two horses, you can see his sword falling out of its sheath.
Other mistake: John Noble's name is misspelled in its second appearance in the SEV credits. It is correct in its initial appearance (the fades with the fancy font). However, in the short list of where the actors are listed with their character's name, it is spelled "John Nogle."
Other mistake: When Aragorn & Gimli are being pulled up the wall after defending the gate at Helms Deep, Gimli is a puppet (A very good puppet though.) when you see him in Aragorns arms just before they get pulled over the top by Legolas, only a quick shot but still visible.
Other mistake: In this scene, Legolas says, "The Uruks turn Northeast. They're taking the Hobbits to Isengard." This is a mistake because Aragorn, Gimli, and Legolas are chasing the Uruks on a westerly course towards Isengard. If the Uruks had turned Northeast, they would have almost doubled back on the trio. (This is in the "Special Extended Edition" DVD.) The Uruks were taking the closest way to Isengard, across terrain, not traveling by common roads. In the book they traveled without rest. There's no reason to believe they would have diverted from their Western course to Northeast temporarily, that would have slowed them down.
Other mistake: When Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli, and Gandalf are at Edoras and are first entering Theoden's hall, watch the right side of the screen as Wormtongue says, "I told you to take the wizard's staff..." Legolas delivers an uppercut to a guard, but his arm goes way above his head. Furthermore, the punching sound effect is not heard until his arm is way over his head. Legolas is as tall as the guards and his fist would have stopped as soon as it hit the guard's face. There is no way the guard can be that tall.
Other mistake: In the Fan Club Credits (Extended DVD), Cate Blanchett's name is spelled wrong. Her surname is spelled 'Blanchette' in the fan club credits.
Other mistake: Before the battle of Helm's Deep, all of the Elves are positioned along the top of the wall. Their waists are right up against the shorter wall to protect them somewhat from incoming crossbow bolts. The Uruk-hai are heard arriving from a distance and Aragorn walks out a few feet in front of them to survey the battlefield. How could he walk out in front of them when they were positioned right up against the edge of the shorter wall?
Other mistake: When Faramir has his sword tip around the chain holding the ring, the blade Faramir is holding is a dead blade i.e. it has no sharp edge.
Other mistake: Before Frodo and Sam catch Gollum we see him climbing down the cliff. The moon is directly behind him and should be the only light, yet he reflects the light on places that should be completly dark.
Other mistake: When the men are retreating into the halls of Helm's Deep, you can see an archer in the bottom right corner repeatedly shooting his bow without an arrow on the string.
Other mistake: It seems as though the Elves at the battle of Helm's Deep aren't quite as coordinated and elegant as Elves are rumoured to be. During the Helm's Deep battle scene, Aragorn is shouting commands to the Elven archers. In the close up shot of Aragorn while it's still raining, look to the left of Aragorn, there is an Elf who gets hit in the head, by the quivers, on the back of the Elf next to him.
