The Scorpion King picture

Audio problem: When Mathayus and his friends are attacking Memnon's palace, there is a scene where Memnon's general rides at Balthazar on a horse, but then falls off. Balthazar holds a spear at his neck. The shot then changes so we can't see the general and he stabs him and he screams loudly. But if the spear went through his neck (as it should have, as it didn't move anywhere but down) he should not have been able to scream. (01:16:55)

Audio problem: There is a scene in the lab where Arnie is explaining his pregnancy to Emma. The shot cuts to a side-on, rear shot of Arnie and it is very clear his mouth or jaw isn't moving and yet you can hear him talking.

Audio problem: When the Queen is speaking to the Troll King for a second time in the mirror, she wraps up discussion with him and in the next shot she walks over to her mirror and says, "Mirror, talk to me, why haven't you found Windell yet?" The Queen's mouth moves ahead of the actual voice.

Audio problem: There are several times in the film when Brom and Eragon can be seen mouthing the words "he" and "him" when referring to Saphira. This is most obvious in the scene where they have fled from the Ra'zacs and get off their horses.
