Corrected entry: After Thorak is killed, he reappears as a guard, walking down the palace-stairs with another guard and is only disguised with a artificial, cheap, black mustache on his face. (00:44:50 - 01:09:45)
Corrected entry: Memnon spills two flaming devices (a plate over a stand) in the throne room while he is fighting Mathayus and they have only burning oil inside, no cinders. Outside in the banquet area, he throws the cinders (not incense, this device was burning earlier in the scene) from the same type of flame receptacle that has gone out into Mathayus' face. The "torches" are exactly the same style and produce exactly the same flame, so why are the incendiary tools different? (01:14:25 - 01:18:20)Phoenix
Corrected entry: After Balthazar breaks through the main door with some guards, the bad guy orders the guards to "kill that witch" (Cassandra). Surprisingly one of them begins fighting her. Please remember that minutes ago the soldiers were about to start an uprising against the king because she was missing. Even more, after Cassandra finishes him, another guard runs into the room from a side door and attacks her right away. Why would he start fighting Cassandra, when he is to protect her in the first place? He couldn't have heard Memnon's order. (01:14:00)
Corrected entry: In the scene where the Scorpion King escapes the wizards lab, he is using a catapult. However catapults were not invented until 400BC - 300BC by the Greeks, something like 2000 years after the events of the movie.
Corrected entry: The magic Chinese powder referred to is obviously black powder or a similar gunpowder variant. However, Black powder explodes with a lot of black smoke and a relatively small blast, unlike what was seen in the film.
Corrected entry: In the desert, when the guards go into a cave, the angle changes and you see two sets of rocks, then several guards fall into quicksand. When their leader "says stay on the rocks," the shot changes, and more sets of rocks appear.
Corrected entry: Near the beginning when he shoots the arrow and goes down a zipwire you can clearly see the wheel under the chain, also the chain is not bending as he goes down.
Trivia: Did anyone else pick up the Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom rip-off/reference? When Mathyus is in the harem of Lord Memnon and the archers come in, he cuts the gong off the wall and runs behind it as a shield, while the guards shoot at it in vain. He then busts out the window and jumps out of it.
