The Scorpion King

The Scorpion King
Mathayus, a desert warrior, leads the fight against the vicious and seemingly invincible Memnon. With the help of sidekick, Arpid, Mathayus manages to kidnap one of Memnon’s most prized possession---the sorceress who helps to predict his future. With his advantage gone, the evil ruler will stop at nothing to get her back, including annihilating a band of warriors led by Balthazar, who have aligned themselves with Mathayus. Here are a few movie mistakes to look for while watching “The Scorpion King”.

∙ Thorak and his men have followed Mathayus into the cave during the sandstorm. When Thorak says “Come with me”, the next man is attacked. As he gets hoisted up, the wire that elevates him can be seen behind his left shoulder.

∙ Mathayus is shot by Thorak and proceeds to break the arrow off that’s protruding from his leg. The length sticking out of his leg increases in size from the time Mathayus breaks the arrow to when he pulls the arrow out.

∙ When Memnon receives the Thorak’s medallion, Takmet has a goblet in his right hand. When one of the men talks about the sorceress being at the meeting, the close-up of Takmet shows a piece of fruit in his hand. The next front view shows the goblet back in its original position.

∙ Mathayus and the others are at Balthazar’s camp. In the overhead view during the festivities when Arpid is arm wrestling one of the lady warriors, they are using their left hands. But in the following front view of them sitting down, they are now using their right hands.

∙ The fortress is under attack! Mathayus can be seen on one of the upper levels and he throws a rope over the side of the wall. His camel stands below and the rope falls and actually touches the camel. But when Mathayus climbs down, the rope ends before he gets to the camel. He has to let go of the rope to drop the rest of the way!
