Continuity and mistakes[]

  • When Mel is knocked out by the Chakram fusing, she falls to the ground with no sign of a sword anywhere near her, but a sword is right at hand when she crawls back up.
  • In the final 1940 scene when Ted Raimi throws the backpack onto his shoulder, several of the scrolls fly out and hit Lucy Lawless, who tries very studiously to ignore it so they can keep shooting.
  • Xena merged both light and dark Chakrams in Chakram, but in the future, the original, single Chakram is used.


  • No Hollywood producers were harmed during the production of this motion picture.
