Continuity mistake: About 30 minutes away from the end, Brother Belcher can be seen walking past the gates. Then, when he's 1 yard away from the gates just to make sure it's all clear for him to go, he gets a bullet that flies out of nowhere. When the bullet hits his hat, the hat shoots upward and out of shot. In the wide shot of all the gates and the walls, there is no sign of his hat.

Continuity mistake: As the fake chiefs escape over a wall in the palace, the door they locked is shown being battered down by Burpers. From the inside shot it takes noticeable damage, and begins to come away from the wall on the hinged side. However, when the fakir opens it from the other side everything is now fixed, and it opens just fine, no signs of damage.

Continuity mistake: Brother Belcher is shown ducking under the water line in the fountain when he and the others are revealed as the fake chiefs. When the shot cuts to the side, he is above the water line again but now completely wet. Then the shot cuts to the front again and he is shown coming up from below the waterline.
