Revealing mistakes 

In the end, when fire arrows are being shot towards the people on top of the mountain, one fire arrow hit a horse in its side. You can see that there is a string attached to the horse and that there are only a few sparks. In the next shot, there is a burning arrow sticking out of the horse when it's going down.
