Corrected entry: When Evie has the flashback where she is fighting Anck-Su-Namun, you see her twirling the sais around quite fast. It is quite obvious that these are aluminum sais, not full weight sais. It is close to impossible to do that particular move at that speed with full weight sais. (01:08:05)
Corrected entry: After John and O'Connell jump out of the window of their house, they land and you can see bullets hit the rail from the front. When the camera pans up, a bad guy is shooting from behind. (00:31:55)
Corrected entry: At the end Izzy saves them just in the nick of time. Just before this part we see many shots of the entire area getting sucked in to the pyramid. You can see for miles, but no airship... (01:53:55)
Corrected entry: When Alex begins to make the first sand castle, he uses water from a cup brought by Lock Nah. The only problem, when he pours the water onto the sand, there is not nearly enough for a sandcastle like the one he made, and I seriously doubt he asked for any more water, as they were in the desert, and it was in short supply.
Corrected entry: In the beginning when they're running from the nile, they grab on to the steel grate above them... Didn't know the Egyptians made steel! (00:16:15)
Corrected entry: Probably one of the few times the plot of an entire movie hinged on a mistake. When Mathayus the Scorpion King is dying of thirst in the desert, he prays to Anubis, god of death, to bring him an invincible army to crush his enemies. Anubis does this, but in return makes Mathayus his eternal slave. The problem is: Anubis ISN'T the ancient Egyptian god of death. Although he almost always ends up miscast as this, the truth is he is the god of mummification and the GUARDIAN, not the god of, the dead. The true god of the dead is as yet unidentified in the Egyptian pantheon, but more likely than not belongs to Anubis's mother, Nephthys.
Corrected entry: In the first film, Imhotep must kill the Americans and take their organs etc. in order to regenerate. When he meets the first guy he takes his eyes and tongue, because before he had none. Then when he dies at the end, he is shown rotting back to his original, eye-less state. But in this film, when he is regenerated he already has eyes and a tongue, but he hasn't killed anyone yet. Where did they come from? (01:37:45)
Corrected entry: At the end of the movie, when it shows the Meji on his horse, there are many tracks all around him, as if someone, or many people were there before.
Corrected entry: When Rick climbs the bridge and sees the bad guys speed off down the left side of the road. A car is approaching in that lane and swerves into its own left lane to avoid it. That means the car was driving on the right side of the road...in London.
Corrected entry: Please explain to me how after their son is kidnapped in London, Evie, Rick, and Jonathan, DRIVE up to the hot air balloon place in Cairo the very next morning? How long would it have taken in 1933 to get from London, England to Cairo, Egypt? In this movie, overnight. It can't be a time lapse - we know the kid has only a few days to get to the pyramid.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Anuck and Nefertitti are fighting with the short swords in front of a larger audience in ancient Egypt, they are using Japaneese daggers, called Sai. Talk about globalisation.
Corrected entry: It seems a bit odd that Ardeth Bay at the same time as facing the armies of Anubis personally is seemingly a true muslim referring time and again to Allah in Arabic. Islam being monotheistic it would deny the existance of other deities.
Corrected entry: As soon as Rick and Evelyn get home in London, they begin talking about going back to Egypt to look for the Oasis. Evelyn says the last known expedition to find the Oasis was sent by Ramases IV, but the words are hardly out of her mouth before she begins listing famous historical generals (Napoleon, Alexander the Great, Caesar) who sent expeditions. You even see Roman standards and Centurion corpses later on in the movie.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Rick and Evie are grieving the loss of Alex you can see the side of Rick's ammunition belt. The shotgun rounds are filled with a white powder signifying blank ammunition.
Corrected entry: The balloon guy says something like "do you know how many cubic metres it takes to fill this thing (the balloon)?" when the metric system didn't come in for another 40 odd years.
Corrected entry: The mummies that attack during the scene on the doubledecker bus are supposedly pretty tough and can smash through brick and masonry walls. However, during the fight just before the bus hits the bridge, the mummy fighting Fraser acts like a normal person. The two grapple together, and the mummy has his hands around Fraser's throat and tries to strangle him. Not only does Fraser fend him off, he even breaks his grip and dives to the floor before the bridge hits. Pretty wimpy for a mummy that just tore through a steel bus roof. (00:44:30)
