Corrected entry: When the princes are racing with chariots in the beginning, they pass a painting on the wall. Ramses turns his head around to look at it. Look at his hair tail, it blows straight towards us - against the wind.
Corrected entry: Throughout the movie, the pyramids appear as a sandy-stone color, while in reality, the newly built pyramids would have appeared as white with a gold top.
Corrected entry: At the end of the movie, a line from the song Deliver Us is playing as Moses returns from the mountain with the Ten Commandments. The line is as follows: "Deliver Us to the Promised Land" However, in the time line of the exodus from Egypt when Moses received the Ten Commandments, the Israelites were still wandering in the desert, not in the promised land as the song suggests.
Corrected entry: When the high priests are naming the Egyptian gods, they mention "Vishnu" at one point. Vishnu the Preserver is a Hindu god, not an Egyptian god.
Corrected entry: When Moses has his dream as a painted figure on the wall, at one point, he falls off a small cliff while the soldiers chase him. He ends up in "hell" with the babies and the crocodiles. While he's falling, behind him, there is an image of a sun whose rays finish in hands. This is the symbol of the god Aten. However, Aten was not yet a god during the time of Moses. He didn't even exist. The Pharoh Akhnaten, who reigned during the eighteenth Dynasty, introduced the short lived cult of praising the god Aten. Moses, however, was said to have lived during the thirteenth Dynasty, when Ammon, the ram-god, was most powerful, and Rameses II ruled. Another indication that the symbol of Aten is out of place is because during the song "Playing with the Big Boys Now", the priests mention a whole bunch of other gods, such as Ra, Ptah, Thoth and so forth. When Aten was being worshipped, he was the only god: there was no other god apart from him.
