The Mummy

The Mummy (2017)

9 mistakes

New this week Continuity mistake: When Ahmanet enters the Crusader burial chamber, she walks in holding the dagger with her right hand and then picks up the stone. As the camera takes the close up shot, it is very clear that she picks up the stone using her right hand. When the shot changes, she is now seen holding the stone with her left hand.

New this month Other mistake: Cruise's sidekick says that their commanding officers thinks they are 100 miles away from their current location. When their commanders show up, he says he was told they were 100 'klicks', or kilometers from their current location.

New this month Plot hole: When the C-130 transport is falling from the sky, the Egyptian sarcophagus remains lashed to the plane's cargo deck. The crew exploring the wreckage says they are miles from the 'primary crash site' (so that nasty stuff can happen to them without witnesses). The sarcophagus would still be at the primary crash site, along with the remains of the fuselage and cargo deck.

Factual error: Set is not the god of death, he is the god of chaos, Anubis is the god of death.

Factual error: It is roughly 120-135 dB inside of a C-130, especially one that hasn't been specifically modified. It is so loud that it is painful to be in the cargo hold without hearing protection (besides it being outside of military regulations) and you certainly couldn't have a normal conversation while it was in flight.

Revealing mistake: During the underwater scenes the light appears from below and above but it's underground and should be pitch black, suggesting studio lighting being used.

Plot hole: The Mummy would not know where to crash the plane in England to retrieve the dagger from the Abbey as this was placed there thousands of years after her imprisonment. If she did know it was there using her powers she would know that the stone was missing, but she didn't.

Factual error: Jenny dates the sarcophagus as 5000 years old and explains later that the hieroglyphs are from the New Kingdom which dates from 1550 to 1070 BC - just around 3000 to 3500 years before.

Factual error: In ancient Egypt a princess could never be chosen as the new pharaoh. If there are no sons available another male from the family (ie. Brother, uncle) is chosen. So there is no reason for Ahmanet to be all hell bent on revenge for losing her position as the next pharaoh.

Trivia

At one point, Jenny grabs a large book and hits a man over the head with it during a scuffle. She actually hits him with a book that is modeled to look similar to the "Book of the Dead" from the 1999 "Mummy" film, and even includes the star-shaped key-hole cover. A cute "blink-and-you'll-miss-it" inside-joke thrown in as a nod to the previous "Mummy" franchise.
