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: 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: 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.
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?
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.
Corrected entry: Evie and Jonathan are supposed to be siblings, yet Jonathan speaks with a Scottish accent and Evie doesn't. They don't appear to have been raised apart, so how come they don't have the same accent?
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: 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: 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: Through your tongue goes a major blood line, if the tongue is cut you will bleed a lot. The man whose tongue is taken by the mummy is not bleeding at all, which perhaps could be explained by some mummy power. But when Imhotep is being executed they begin by cutting his tongue off and then bandaged him. For one thing the bandage should have been blood-covered but more importantly Imhotep would have suffocated/drowned on his own blood when laid down.
Corrected entry: Where are all the British police and soldiers? Egypt may have been theoretically independent in the 1920s, but it was still dominated by Britain.
