New this week Continuity mistake: When Rick turns around finds Alex, Alex falls back and his hat falls off and rolls back a few inches, resting a few inches from the top of his head. However, after Rick says his name, it cuts back to Alex and the hat is practically under his head, almost behind his back.
Continuity mistake: When Rick is trapped in the bathroom, he finds John underwater in a bathtub full of suds. As John climbs out of the tub, his body naturally is covered in suds. However, when he and Rick jump out the window and start running away, John's body is completely suds-free. (00:30:15)
Continuity mistake: In the beginning when Brendan Fraser is looking around the tunnels he turns around to see his kid and they scream. As they are screaming they are at eye level but when a few seconds later when they are standing the kid is like 2 feet shorter then Brendan Fraser, and if you look around there is nothing for the kid to have stood on. (00:05:55)
Continuity mistake: Before Fraser and the gang reach the Oasis, the falcon is sent back to the human army that is advancing in order to stop the Anubis horde. There are literally tens of thousands of men advancing. Yet after the first battle with the Anubis warriors, the human force is decimated. Only a ragged line of warriors remains for the final charge of the Anubis warriors. But there are no human bodies or horses in the sand. (01:16:50 - 01:52:30)
Continuity mistake: In the first movie, Rick (Brendan Fraser) has a tattoo of the eye of Horus on the back of his right hand (easier to see in the theatres than on the video, but if you look closely you can see it several times throughout the film). However, in the sequel the tattoo is gone and now he has that tattoo on his forearm, which he didn't have in the first one. Considering the time period, tattoo removal wasn't possible. (01:51:25)
Continuity mistake: In the first big catfight between Anck-Su-Namun and Nefertiri (in Seti's throne room), look carefully when Nefertiri is knocked down the first time. Her weapons fall to the ground; however, when she bounds back to her feet, the knives have magically reappeared in her hands. (01:04:50)
Continuity mistake: In the scene where the bad guys ask John Hannah about the bracelet of Anubis (and he has no idea what they're talking about), they throw him on a chair, and one of the guys in red holds a knife to his throat. In the shots from the front, he also grabs John Hannah's hair with his other hand, in almost all of the shots from behind, he doesn't. (00:25:50)nightline
Continuity mistake: When they arrive at the Magic Carpet, in the very frame where the camera is on Rick and you can hear Izzy lock the doors, Jonathan is seen walking towards Rick, and he gets very close to him. The camera then cuts to the locked doors, and when it cuts back to Rick and Evie you can see Jonathan walk all the way from the car door back towards Rick - for a second time. (00:54:04)
Continuity mistake: During the long shot when the cast are racing across Tower Bridge in the double decker bus, right in the middle of the screen you can see the twinkling lights of a distant skyscraper which looks suspiciously like Canary Wharf, which of course had not yet been built in 1935. Its construction was in fact not completed until 1990. (00:45:05)
Continuity mistake: When we first enter the museum there is a long shot of the resurrection area with Evie at the top of the screen lying on a wooden stretcher. She is conscious and seen moving around to adjust the ropes. In the next shot, she is unconscious and is only woken once she is bumped on the table. (00:35:35)
