Continuity mistake: When Memnon is talking to the sorceress in his palace, he talks about the dangers of her being outside "his care." Memnon takes some meat and throws it to the tigers. The next shot shows his hand empty, then holding meat again, and then empty again. (00:20:30)
Factual error: All swords in this movie are made from steel, and in the beginning it's said that the film takes place years before the Pyramids were built (they were built around 3200 BC). Steel wouldn't be around for 2000 more years. (00:03:50 - 00:12:40)
Trivia: Did anyone else pick up the Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom rip-off/reference? When Mathyus is in the harem of Lord Memnon and the archers come in, he cuts the gong off the wall and runs behind it as a shield, while the guards shoot at it in vain. He then busts out the window and jumps out of it.
Trivia: When the barbarian king is about to kill Mathayus's brother, he claims he's killed Babylonians, Mesopotamians, Assyrians, Chaldeans, and Sumerians, but he's never killed an Akkadian. In fact, all these civilizations are different names for people who lived in the Mesopotamia valley throughout much of ancient history. This is probably intentional, and may in fact be an inside joke.
Arpid: Let me tell you, after a hard day of looting and pillaging, there is no greater city than Gomorrah... except maybe Sodom.
