Corrected entry: The Pharaoh accuses Anck Su Namun of cheating on him as soon as he sees the smudged body paint on her arm - but she could have just smudged the paint herself by scratching. As a system of checking whether she had cheated on the Pharaoh, perfect body paint would constantly fail, whenever she bumped into or leaned on anything or scratched.
Corrected entry: One of the Americans gets his tongue cut off and his eyes cut out. It is impossible to stay alive when someone cuts your eyes out.
Corrected entry: Ardeth and his men are supposed to be the descendants of the warriors who buried Imhotep at the beginning of the film. They claim to have sworn to keep Imhotep from ever arising from the dead, so why is the key to the book and Imhotep's sarcophagus just lying around for Rick to magically find as he claimed? Shouldn't this very important key have been in the possession of Ardeth's people all along, or even destroyed?jbrbbt
Corrected entry: When the city of the dead is sinking into the sand at the end of the movie, Beni becomes trapped in the treasure room. As the ceiling comes down it crushes the reflective mirror Rick shot earlier, meaning there has to be a light source coming from above to reflect on the mirror to begin with. So even if the mirror was damaged, there still should have been adequate light in the room instead of being completely dark.jbrbbt
Corrected entry: In the final return to The City of the Dead, O'Connell and company return in the RAF plane, Imhotep, Evelyn, and Beni fly in on a sand storm. But after Benny discovers the treasure vault, he runs outside to get a camel from the huge herd waiting there... now where did that herd come from?
Corrected entry: When O'Connell and the others are escaping Imhotep's crazed followers they crash the yellow car and abandon it. The next morning they are seen arriving at the old RAF pilot's camp in the same car which shows no sign of damage. Were all of the cars in Egypt yellow and the same model or did they sneak back to retrieve that one taking it to an all night Egyptian body and fender shop before setting off to rescue Evie? (01:27:20 - 01:30:00)
Corrected entry: Rick throws a stick of dynamite into a niche in the wall. As Rick and Jonathan escape through the hole, flames are seen on the right hand side. Nothing should be burning as there is only sand and stone.
Corrected entry: The teeth on the star key suggest that the mummy sarcophagus uses some sort of tumbler system. A closer look at the "key hole" shows that there is nothing for the teeth to work on. The lock is simply the solid negative impression of the key. You can twist the lock with a bare hand and open it, so any trouble the characters go through to get the key is pointless. The same goes for the book of the dead.
Corrected entry: When the Magi is set on fire, both he and Johnathan lunge for the key. If you look closely, you can see that it is actually the Magi who picks it up from the angle and condition of the hand/arm that grabs it. Yet, later on, Johnathan mysteriously has it.
Corrected entry: When Benny jumps out the window the window breaks, but later, when the flies come, Jonathan and Rick shut that window, blocking out the flies.
Corrected entry: When Imhotep corners Beni against a wall, Beni starts chanting random prayers hoping one would stop Imhotep. When he does and Imhotep says he can be used and the rewards will be great, he pulls out a handful of gold. Where did the gold come from? He's supposed to be a freshly awoken mummy.
