Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time

Continuity mistake: After being chased by soldiers after talking to his uncle, Dastan gets into a swordfight with Garsiv. As soon as it starts, Garsiv hits a pillar with his weapon knocking a significantly large chunk and a another smaller chunk out of it. In the immediate shot, the size and locations of the two chunks differ.

Continuity mistake: When Ben Kingsley places the dagger in the sand crystal time goes backward. Tamina calls out Dastan's name and then he calls out her name in the same order as it happened in forward time. This should have been backward.

Continuity mistake: While storming the eastern gate of Alamut, Dastan climbs up onto a high beam with some rope. He then ties the rope round the beam and in one shot, the part of the rope that Dastan is holding onto is on the left hand side of the beam. The shot then pans out and in the next close up shot, it is on the right hand side of the beam.

Continuity mistake: After Dastan speaks to his uncle, there are soldiers firing at him with crossbows from above - one of the arrows becomes embedded horizontally instead of at a downward angle.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Dastan and Tamina are again captured by Sheik Amar, Seso, and their group because of the chaos they caused back at the valley. In the oasis, watch Dastan's left arm carefully: the leather belts are changing shot by shot. In one shot there are many black strips across, and in another shot we see it's a single black strip running around his arm.

Continuity mistake: When Tamina is berating Dastan on acting like a typical Persian prince, her hair is to the side and in front. After Dastan explains how he came to be a prince, her hair is swept to the back.

Continuity mistake: When Tus's throat is slit, we see two shots of his dead body. In the first shot, his neck is covered in blood, but in the second shot there's only blood on the wound, but the wound is longer.

Continuity mistake: When Seso throws a sword into a warrior's head, the sword originally had the handle cut off, but when we see it sticking out of the warrior's head, it has a handle.

Continuity mistake: While Dastan is securing the second gate in the battle for Alamut, a ring appears on his finger. While he is levering the gate, there are no rings on his finger. A moment later, when he waves at Bis to signal the gate is secure, he wears a silver ring on his left hand. The ring is visible again when Bis waves his torch at him, but is gone the next time we see him.
