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.
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 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: 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.
Corrected entry: Towards the end of the fight sequence on the boat, when the Americans join the battle, the Medi with the hook attacks Johnathan. One American turns and unloads his revolver into the Medi (at least eight shots), plus all the firing he was doing earlier without reloading his gun. That's way too many shots to be in a single revolver.
Corrected entry: On the second day, in the scene with the sarcophagus, when Jonathan uses the key to open the tomb he turns the key to the left to unlock it. However, at the beginning of the movie, when they were putting Imhotep in his tomb, the Medji turned the key to the left to lock it. Furthermore, when Evie opens the Book of the Dead, she turns the key to the right to unlock it.
Corrected entry: Something concerning the treasure chamber: since it is illuminated by daylight reflected by the mirrors, there should have been a noticeable opening available for the light to stream in, making the chamber more easily detectable. But it is not until close to the end - after several days of searching - that the treasury is found from within the ruins.
Corrected entry: During the nighttime fight with the black clad guys, at the ruins, Rick stops them by brandishing a stick of dynamite with a burning fuse. The fuse length is so long that he could have easily been killed and the fuse, safely removed.
Corrected entry: On the plane, Ardeth was strapped to the right wing and Jonathan was on the left. In the scene where Imhotep has just created the sand cloud, just after Evelyn says, "You'll kill them." You see the plane's left wing dip, and Ardeth Bay and Jonathan have switched wings. You can tell because Ardeth is in black and Jonathan is in white. Yet, when the plane goes down in the next scene, they are back on the correct wings. (01:34:05)
Corrected entry: When Jonathon has a scarab crawling into his arm, Rick rips Jonathon's shirt and we see that the scarab has reached his shoulder. Rick cuts it out of Jonathon's upper arm, but later when we see Jonathon, he has a bandage on his forearm.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the Magi are paddling their canoes, just before the fire on the boat, you can hear the call of a night bird called a Whip-poor-will (Caprimulgus voviferus). Whip-poor-wills inhabit the Eastern half of the North American Continent, not Egypt. (00:25:00)
Corrected entry: When Rick and Evelyn are on the boat, and have just come out of the room they have set alight, Evelyn says, 'The map, the map, I've forgotten the map.' Then, in a couple of shots later, we see Rick lean up against a wall, and someone (who I presume is a Med-jai) is shooting at him. Surely, if he was shooting into the wall, the dust wouldn't fly out of the wall, and the wallpaper would bend inwards instead of outwards.
Corrected entry: After the American who wears glasses has had his eyes and tongue taken by Imhotep, he still is able to articulate words pretty well, which, if his tongue was really gone, would be impossible-try talking without moving your tongue sometime, and see how unintelligible you are. (01:04:25)
Corrected entry: Rick throws a stick of dynamite into a niche in the wall where it explodes. In slow motion it can be seen that there are two explosions, the initial one followed by a much larger one.
