Visible crew/equipment: Throughout the movie, in the shots of the guys on the alien planet, the white reflector screens and film crew's reflections are visible in their sunglasses. (00:40:20)
Audio problem: Right after Jackson has been dragged through the desert by the creature, it wakes him up and he says, "Get away from me," but his mouth never moves. (00:40:30)
Revealing mistake: In the scene where O'Neil is fighting Ra's bodyguard, the bodyguard uses claws and hits O'Neil's back, tearing his shirt and wounding him. But you can see Kurt's "wounds" and torn shirt right before he's hit by the bodyguard (a scene after Ra's bodyguard's claws are shown). (01:49:10)
Trivia: The producers, the casting agents, really wanted Jaye Davidson, from "The Crying Game", to play the head bad guy, but Jaye said, "No more movies", so they kept upping the money they would pay him - this is before actors nowadays get phenomenal money - and it was only when they got to a million dollars that he said yes.
Colonel Jonathan "Jack" O'Neil: I'm here in case you succeed.
Ra: There can be only one Ra.
Lt. General W.O. West: So you think you've solved in fourteen days what they couldn't solve in two years?
Question: What does Dr. Jackson say when they send the probe through? Is it, "Where are we on that map?" or, "Where will it be on that map?"
