Corrected entry: When Evy is telling O'Connell about the curse of the Hom-Dai, she mentions that if a victim of the Hom-Dai ever awakened, he would bring with him the ten plagues of Egypt. Then later in the film, Beni is praying to every God imaginable in an attempt to save himself from Imhotep and ends up saying a prayer in Hebrew, which Imhotep understands to be 'the language of the slaves.' The ten plagues took place during the Exodus, so if the slaves had not been freed during Imhotep's lifetime, how could the Egyptians have foreseen the plagues when they wrote about and performed the Hom-Dai? (00:58:50 - 01:07:50)
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.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Imhotep is reincarnating Anuk-su-Namun, she is positioned with her hands on her chest (like a mummy.) When the spirit re-enters her body, her hands are in the air, shaking. The shot backs-up to take a wide view and show the Mejai. If you look at Anuk-su-Namun, her hands are back on her chest. When the shot goes back to a close of her, her hands are shaking in the air again.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Rick's team opens the coffin, Evie traces her fingers down the scratches in the lid and notes that they were made by fingernails. However, when Imotep was originally put in the coffin, he was very securely bound in bandages. There is no way he could have made those scratches with his fingernails.
Corrected entry: In the scene where they go underground, they use mirrors to reflect the sun's light, therefore lighting up the tomb. The mirrors are head height, so walking past one would briefly cut off the light in the rest of the tomb, as the beam of light would not be able to continue, but some how the light does not change.
Corrected entry: As Jonathan, Rick and guy in black enter the gold room, they engage in a mummy fight with Imotep's priests. During the fight they blast the mummy priests to pieces. During the last scenes in the room of gold, what happened to the pieces of the mummy priests - shouldn't they have been scattered all over the path to the stairs? Someone must've been standing by with a broom...
Corrected entry: When the Mummy comes into town and they show his eye, it is blue, but later they are dark brown.
Corrected entry: In the end, when Evelyn is handcuffed to the table about to be killed, Rick cuts one chain with his sword, then we see him trying to get her loose. A few scenes later, the handcuffs are off her wrists, even though there was never any mention of a key.
Corrected entry: In the part where Imhotep's priests are chasing the trio in the hall right before they get to the book of Amun-Ra, the guy in black is blasting away with a machine gun. When they reach the room with the statue, Brendan Fraser hands the man in black his shotgun. The machine gun has disappeared.
Corrected entry: Whose organs are in the jars that the Mummy is chasing around? His all seemed to be intact when they stuck him in the sarcophagus, because he was alive, if not particularly happy.
Corrected entry: In order to resurrect Ankh-Su-Namun at the end, Imhotep kidnaps Evie. Yet at the beginning he is doing the same ritual, but seems to need no body as a sacrifice. Interestingly, though, as the Magi interrupt his ceremony at the beginning, he does seem about to stab Ankh-Su-Namun with a very large knife, which would make no sense if he's just resurrected her.
Corrected entry: In the scene on the boat, when Jonathan reaches for the key on the floor after fighting the guy in black, you can clearly see that it is the guy in black's hand that grabs the key because he has the black tattoo on the back of his hand. And somehow Jonathon ends up with it.
Corrected entry: There was no solar eclipse visible anywhere near the Middle East in 1923.
