Continuity 

The exterior shot of Sinbad's ship is obviously of a completely different ship before they reach the island the first time and when they leave. The first time we see it coming up on the island, it has only one large triangular sail as was common with medieval Mediterranean vessels. Then when it leave the island it's a 16th century galleon with three square sails on three separate masts.

A different man grabs the king cobra. Sokurah reaches into the basket to pick up the cobra during his magic act. A switch to closeup shows a man with different sleeves, and three-to-four closeup frames show a hairy-headed man. Sokurah the magician is completely bald. When Sokura throws the serpent into the jar, it is blue-colored, not brown. (This is not a problem in the correctly framed 1.85:1 theatrical aspect ratio, only the full frame version.)

Throughout the movie Princess Parisa has a little curl on her forehead (her left side). It mysteriously disappears and reappears at any given time within one scene, not just as a result of wardrobe change or scene change.

Errors in geography 

Bagdad (Baghdad) is not located on the ocean. It is an inland city on the Tigris River, approximately 400 miles from the Persian Gulf.

Revealing mistakes 

On their first encounter with the cyclops, they are rowing out to their boat when the cyclops hurls a boulder at them. The boulder hits the water, makes a splash, but then it starts to float rather than sink like a rock.

As the crew arrives on the island, they see a wooden cage with a skeleton hanging inside. In reality, the bones would fall apart as the body dried out. In the scene, the wires holding the bones together are clearly seen.
