28 mistakes

Continuity mistake: When Bowen first catches up to Draco under the waterfall, he is completely soaked as he stands there and talks to him. Draco takes off flying and Bowen goes after him on his horse and is now completely dry, hair and all.

Visible crew/equipment: When Bowen is in his saddle being pulled in the air by Draco, you can see the harness Dennis Quaid is wearing.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When the evil King Einon goes to follow his mother into the passage to kill her with a spear, you can still see the back of him by the time you hear her death scream. His arm wasn't even in a position to thrust a spear at her.

Add time

Revealing mistake: After Draco flees the cave, Bowen is seen riding his horse in the water after him. You can easily see that it isn't Dennis Quaid.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When the trap door slowly closes trapping Bowen and Einon in the basement to fight it out, the shot is reversed. In the top corner of the shot the flames of the fire are running backwards.

Add time

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the film, the tooth that Bowen is holding after he kills the dragon changes shape twice. For example, when he holds it up when he sees Einon's men, it is shorter and thicker than the tooth he was holding when he walked out of the smoke.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Bowen throws his spear at Draco in the cave, he throws it on an arc and fairly slow. It hits Draco flying perfectly straight and faster than when Bowen threw it.

Add time

Continuity mistake: Draco's teeth don't match from the shots of the model Bowen sits in to all the CGI shots.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Gilbert takes aim at the target, he loads up an arrow with black and white feathers. When he shoots the arrow, its feathers are completely white.

Add time

Continuity mistake: During Bowen and Draco's last scene together, the light shining on them comes from the same light source, but their shadows overlap instead of merging.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Draco is pulling Bowen through the forest, you can see Bowen passing the same set of white birch trees several times.

Add time

Revealing mistake: When Bowen cuts the shackles of the rebellion leaders, the wood is pre-cut. You can see the line. Bowen just knocks the halves apart.

Add time

Revealing mistake: During Draco's first "attack" on the peasants, the downdraft of his wings doesn't affect the corn or the buildings.

Add time

Revealing mistake: When Bowen is chasing Draco through the forest on his horse, the trail widens when the view is switched from side to front. This was so the inexperienced Dennis Quaid could be shown riding from the front. You can see it is his horse double in the side shot.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When the monk first appears he is riding his mule writing about King Arthur in his book. He falls off the mule after the dragon flies over them and the book is nowhere to be seen.

Add time

MCKD

Continuity mistake: When young Einon kneels down by his dying father, the position of his arms changes between the wide shot and the first close-up.

Add time

Factual error: When Kara is sitting up on the bed after Einon throws her down, you can see she is wearing a bra. They didn't have bras in Medieval England.

Add time

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the film when the girl approaches the archway, she kills someone with an axe, but after there is no blood on it.

Add time

Continuity mistake: After Einon stabs Bowen in the river, there's blood on the point of his sword. In the next shot, the blood has disappeared.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When the peasants are taking archery lessons from Quaid, the friar picks an arrow with all white plumage, but when he brings the arrow up to his face to sight his target, the plumage is white with brown stripes.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Bowen is dragged through the forest by Drago, we see him/stuntman hit a tree twice. Same shot, two different camera angles.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Kara is in the village, people are throwing fruit and other things at her. When she turns around to face the man she has some dirt on her face, a few shots later there is a lot more dirt.

Add time

Continuity mistake: At the big fight between the peasants and Einon's knights, Bowen strikes one enemy from behind with his sword. Not only does it look like he strikes between upper torso and right arm, but also when he retrieves his sword, there is no blood stain on it.

Christoph Galuschka

Revealing mistake: When the peasants are fighting King Einon and his men, Karen swings an axe at the back of a man, but you can see her flipping it so the flat side goes against the guys back.

Add time

Audio problem: During the battle in the forest, Kara remarks, "Like a pudding", but her lips hardly move.

Add time

Factual error: When Draco is first "shot" to hustle money from the villagers, we see an overhead shot of him swimming underwater. However given the amount of water he's deplacing while swimming, we do not see any swell or disturbance due to water refraction of him beneath the surface that would clearly have been visible.

Other mistake: At the beginning when the king (Einon's father) grabs a torch and sets fire to the villagers' home, he only touches the corners of the roof. Yet seconds later, a fire suddenly begins inside the house...for no reason.

Gavin Jackson

Revealing mistake: When Bowen is being pulled through the woods on his saddle, you can see the "rope" bend and snap like an antenna.
