- Hugo Weaving surpassed other actors, such as Vin Diesel, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Sean Bean and Benedict Cumberbatch for the role of Ra.
- In the opening scene with the discovery of the gate in 1938, the language spoken is actually Swedish, though with a rather mediocre pronunciation.
- Zowie Devlin was going to make an major appearance in the film, but Adam Campbell-Sing decided to write her out, in order to save more time in the film.
- But Zowie did become a regular in the series.
- Though it is heavily implied, the film, contrary to popular belief, never actually states that Ra was the last of his race or that he built the Groundbridges.
- In the opening scene, depicting a car from the 1920s, the sound effect of the horn is obviously of a dual-note horn from a modern car.
- Shadow sizes and directions vary in the desert scenes.
- When Rob's suitcase is thrown down the hill near the pyramid, the contents are on the ground, but the suitcase clearly has not been opened.
- When the Transportation Rings are coming down on the last warrior and Ra screams, his fillings are visible.
- During the desert battles, crowds of immobile mannequins are visible in the background.
