Audio/visual unsynchronised 

When Brom and Eragon stop and get off their horses (after fleeing the Ra'zac, before Brom inspects Saphira), both can be heard referring to Saphira as "her" once and "she" three times during their dialogue. However, both of the characters clearly mouth the words "him" and "he". The sound was obviously re-dubbed. Additionally, there are one or two instances of missed dubbing, and either clearly refer to Saphira with male pronouns.

In the beginning when Eragon and his uncle are talking while brushing the horse, as the camera cuts back and forth between the two, Eragon is holding hay in his hand that's on the horse - then he's not - then he is - then the hay is gone at the end.

When Brom and Eragon are riding to Daret, it can clearly be seen that Brom is leading the way. Then, in a shot when the camera flies over the two riders from behind, it is Murtagh riding instead of Brom. You can tell by the larger cape, longer hair, and the fact that he is carrying a bow, which Brom never had. Then in the next shot it is Brom again.

When Eragon fires an arrow into Durza's forehead in the prison in Gil'ead, the wide shot of the impact shows a long length of shaft protruding from Durza's head, then the close-up shows only a short length, then the next wide shot as Durza dissolves, shows a long length of shaft again.

Revealing mistakes 

About 40 minutes in the movie, during a riding scene, the CGI hills in the background are not synced correctly to the camera motion, giving the impression that the hills are actually moving against the foreground.
At the end of the movie the King is seen taking a sword and drawing it. His nail is seen bending like soft rubber as he does so.
