Continuity: During the start of the battle in Odysseus's throne room at the end of the film, watch as the evil suitor hurls an axe at Odysseus and Telemachus, shouting "A river of blood!" Both duck as the axe flies towards them. Then in the very next shot, they duck a second time as the axe smashes into the wooden throne behind.
Factual error: During the battle in the throne room, a soldier is seen hiding behind a pillar. Then Telemachus comes and swings his sword clockwise. However, we see the soldier getting hit by the sword, hitting the pillar, and then falling to the ground. This only could have happened if Telemachus had swung his sword counter-clockwise.
