The 13th Warrior

Revealing mistake: During the final battle, Buliwyf's dog mauls a Wendol warrior. As he does so you can see the obviously rubber bear's tooth on his headress bend as the dog's head catches it.

Revealing mistake: When the fireworm has descended upon the town and after Ahmed finds out the Wendol are human, you can see that he stabs the Wendol right through his side, not his chest.

Visible crew/equipment: In a scene in a cave that is the lair of the "eaters of the dead," the camera takes an overhead wide angle shot of the "eaters" walking down into the cave. It is possible to see a young man wearing a burgundy t-shirt and beige shorts (a crew member), sitting against the wall of the cave cross-legged.

Trivia: The story of this film is basically a retelling of the story of Beowulf and Grendel. Buliwyf is Beowulf, the Wendol are Grendel, King Hrothgar is of course himself. Ahmed Ibn Fahalan was added to lend the story historical credence as Ahmen Ibn Fahalan really did travel north from Baghdad and encountered Viking men.
