The Scorpion King mistake picture

Continuity mistake: After the fight scene between Mathyus and Balthazar and the tribe celebrating, you see Arpid arm wrestling a woman. In the first shot he is wrestling with his left arm and in the next shot he is wrestling with his right arm and loses. (00:56:15)

Revealing mistake: When Mathayas is chasing the kid who stole his rupees, he crawls into a hole that's just big enough for him to fit through. But when Mathayas crawls in, the hole has grown - he should have only been able to fit on his stomach, but he goes through on his knees. (00:25:15)

Continuity mistake: When Mathayus is stabbed with the poison arrow, it goes into the side of his right thigh, but when he removes his bandage after Cassandra has healed him, he checks the front of his left thigh just above his kneecap for the injury. (00:45:05 - 00:48:05)

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)

The Sorceress: Rivers of blood can never bring peace.

Question: In Roger Ebert's review, he says "...Mathayus intones, 'As long as one of us still breathes, the sorcerer will die.' See if you can spot the logical loophole." I can't - what's the problem with that line?

Chosen answer: By the way Mathayus is saying it, it sounds like he is saying as long as him or the sorcerer still breathes, either he or the sorcerer will die, but he is trying to say as long as one of the Akkadians are breathing, they will not stop trying to kill the sorcerer until he is dead.
