Corrected entry: Near the end when Rick stabs the Scorpion King with the Spear of Osiris, the spear stops Rick from falling. This is impossible because the spear is so smooth it should just slide back out.
Corrected entry: When Imhotep is brought back and the dark-haired woman introduces herself, she claims to be Anck Su Namun reincarnated. This wouldn't have mattered in the slightest to Imhotep as the ancient Egyptians didn't even believe in reincarnation. This also applies to Evie being the Pharaoh's daughter reincarnated; when Anck Su Namun's spirit is put into the woman's body and she 'becomes' her, she should not have believed Evie to be a reincarnation of the princess.
Corrected entry: Brandon Fraser's friend pours a glass of brandy for each of them, and then fills the glasses again before either of them has taken a drink.
Corrected entry: When the mummy and Brendan first see each other (in the warehouse) you see Brendan reload his shotgun, cut to the mummy who yells "YOU", cut back to Brendan reloading his shotgun, smoking cartridge and all. I didn't hear a shot between the first and second reload. (00:39:34)
Corrected entry: Rick enters the pyramid looking for Imhotep after his wife Evie is killed by Ankh Su Namum. His son Alex then comes up with the plan to bring her back to life, and he and his Uncle Jonathan then do just that, all without Rick's knowledge. Later, when Rick is busy fighting off the Scorpion King, Evie shows up as if nothing had happened, and he reacts by calling out her name. Shouldn't he be at least a little bit shocked to see his dead wife walking about the place?
Corrected entry: In The Mummy, when the Pharaoh walks in on Anck Su Namun he asks her who touched her. In Evie's flashback during The Mummy Returns the Pharaoh doesn't ask about the smeared paint on his mistress' arm.
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: On the ledge in the oasis, Ardeth tells Jonathan that the only way to kill an Anubis warrior is to cut off its head. Yet, during the first "battle" between the Magi and the Army of Anubis, there are at least 2 Anubis warriors that are headless. How are they meant to be killed? (01:45:09)
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: The flooded corridor and the front area by the boy where both at the same ground level, since when the wall broke it caused the water to spill through. Since it was the Nile that was flooding the place, there should be more than enough water to drown all three of them, instead of that little water that spilled out.
Corrected entry: During the fight at the O'Connell estate, there is a shot in which Rick jumps onto a chair (causing it to fall over) and then runs to the bathroom. As he does so, there is a mysterious blast of steam or smoke, I'm guessing from a hydraulic device in the chair.
Corrected entry: When the Scorpion King eats the black scorpion at the beginning, it is blatantly obvious it is a prop scorpion, as there is almost no movement, even though it was stinging him and attacking in the previous shots.
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: The chronology is off. The movie begins in 3067 BC, and continues in 1933 AD. But that's only 3999 years, because you have to subtract a year when you go from BC to AD (to make up for the fact that there was no 'year zero', and so 1BC to 1AD were only one year apart, not two). At most, that's still a year short, and the Scorpion King is arising too early (supposed to ride every 4,000 years).
Corrected entry: At the end when Alex is reading from the book of the dead, how did he get it open? In the first movie, they had to have a key to open it. (01:45:25)
Corrected entry: Here's a mistake only a South African would notice. Towards the end of the film, when Arnold Vosloo throws the spear at the Scorpian King and Brendan Fraser catches it, he shouts "Nee", which is the Afrikaans word for "No" (Arnold Vosloo's home language.) A few seconds later he exclaims again, this time using the correct "Egyptian" word for "no". (01:54:05)
