Corrected entry: In the beginning, Ardeth calls Anubis the "dark god." However, Anubis was not an evil god, simply the one to perform the weighing of the hearts ceremony for the deceased. The fact that he deals with the dead may have created a false impression. But a much better "dark god" could have been Set, god of chaos.
Corrected entry: Around halfway through the movie we see Ardeth's army of Medjai warriors which appears to be in the thousands readying for the battle against the Anubis warriors. Where were all these men the entire time the bad guys were digging up Imhotep at the beginning of the movie? If they had that many warriors they could have easily overpowered the bad guys at Hamunaptra. This also raises the question what all of these warriors were doing when they could have helped during the events of the first movie.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the father says "You know, those snakes are very poisonous." Then the mother says "Only if they bite you." You can clearly see the snake's colours are red touching black which clearly means that the snake is not a venomous snake. (00:07:00)
Corrected entry: After Evie has been taken from her house, Rick, Ardeth, Jonathan and the kid run to get the car and give chase. As they get round the corner of the house they all stop running and are just walking to the car. As they have only run a a few paces they can hardly be worn out but since this is an emergency why do they stop running? (00:32:55)
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: 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: 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)
Corrected entry: In the bus chase scene they come across a bridge. A sign reads "low clearance" or whatever. The roof of the doubledecker bus gets cut off. There are two mistakes in that scene. (1) The bridge is the tower bridge of London. Doubledecker buses actually CAN pass under that bridge. (2) If there is a low clearance at one side of the bridge, why isn't it the same on the other side? On the opposing side they could just drive through without any obstacles.
Corrected entry: When Rick, Evie, Jonathan and Alex are 'walking' up the pyramid at the end to be rescued, there are steps there for them. The Ancient Egyptians NEVER made pyramids with those kind of ridges on them. They were smooth and even if there were stairs. At the size that they were, the pyramid could only have been about 10 metres tall. (01:58:25)
Corrected entry: In the bus chase scene, Fraser shoots a shotgun through the roof of the bus. The damage that is done looks like single bullets were shot - not like the typical shotgun damage.
Corrected entry: When the cast is sent back to ancient Egypt and after Arnold Vosloo and Patricia Velasquez have killed the king and she urges Imhotep to go. You can see at the bottom left hand corner, her arm from the present come into the scene but it is smaller than normal. Someone didn't get the timing right.
Corrected entry: When looking for the Oasis, Rick says something along the lines of "That's the Blue Nile down there. We must be out of Egypt be now". The Blue Nile starts in Sudan, hundreds of miles away.
Corrected entry: This story takes place in 1933. However, during the sequence of events in Rick's home, they are attacked by people trying to retrieve the scorpion bracelet. One of the villians begins shooting at Rick and his brother-in-law with a Sten submachine gun. This firearm wasn't invented for another 10 years, until after the outbreak of WWII, in 1943.
