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 city of Hamunaptra (meaning 'City of the Dead Man') was found in India in the 1850's. There are no known ancient Egyptian cities by that name.
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 sandstorm covers the plane with sand, all the characters have their eyes covered with goggles, but their ears and noses are not covered. Seems they are able to hear and breathe just fine with all that sand going into their nostrils, ears and mouths after they crash land in the desert. You can see Rick is able to talk to Ardeth and Jonathan while they are traveling inside the sand storm.vinoth2803
Corrected entry: Imhotep needs his physical organs that are contained within the Canopic jars the Americans have. This means Imhotep must have existed in the Old Kingdom, as the ancient Egyptians eventually discovered a method of preserving the organs within the body of the deceased. This led to Canopic jars becoming purely symbolic, sometime near the birth of the New Kingdom.
Corrected entry: Evie's shoes change styles during the final scenes of the movie; she has open-toe sandals when she is tossed out of the sand storm and when she is first seen chained to the table, but then she's wearing closed-toe heels when fighting with the female mummy and running from the collapsing city.
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 Evy is describing mummifacation to Rick, she mentions that they removed the heart. This is not true. The Egyptians believed that the heart was the thinking organ, and should remain in the body to help the soul reach the underworld. She could have been talking about the Hom-Dai, but she also mentions that the brain is removed from the nostrils, which Imhotep did NOT suffer. (00:45:25)
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: The fingernail marks shown on the inside of the coffin look to be somewhat deep. Now I'm not sure what that coffin was made out of, but it appeared to be hard and heavy. So it seems that even if Imhotep's fingernails had been as hard and sharp as knives, he'd have had to be running them methodically over and over the exact same spot to make indentations in the lid. Not what you'd expect from someone clawing frantically.Krista
