The Scorpion King

Other mistake: When the guards are breaking into Cassandra's bathing room, we see a guard's arm reach through a hole in the door to unlatch it. However, you can see the door has come off the jamb, with a big gap, before he reaches down to pull the latch.

Other mistake: In the rebel village toward the end of the movie, Balthzar's scar on the left side of his face keeps changing. Sometimes the scar is barely there and others it is only partially there. (01:13:40)

The Scorpion King mistake picture

Other mistake: In the scene where Mathayus happens upon the hide out of Balthazar and his people and are confronting one another, Balthazar's necklaces change from being messily arranged to neatly graduated in frame to frame. Surely he wouldn't have been rearranging the necklaces while confronting the Arcadian? (00:53:20)

Continuity mistake: When Memnon is talking to the sorceress in his palace, he talks about the dangers of her being outside "his care." Memnon takes some meat and throws it to the tigers. The next shot shows his hand empty, then holding meat again, and then empty again. (00:20:30)

Arpid: Let me tell you, after a hard day of looting and pillaging, there is no greater city than Gomorrah... except maybe Sodom.

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.
