Errors in geography 

Cortes is depicted fighting in Veracruz against the Tlaxcaltecs but the natives living there were the Totonacs. The Tlaxcaltecs lived in the central zone of México, not in the Gulf Coast.

Revealing mistakes 

The Tunnel appears to be extremely long, stretching off to a vanishing point. But as Castillano carries the golden mask out of the Tunnel, his shadow on the back wall reveals that it is only perhaps 30 feet deep, with the back wall painted to look like a tunnel receding to "infinity".

When Castillano first grabs the guards pistol he fire a shot in the air. There is no sound effect edited in and so there is no sound of gun fire.

When the young chief is about to pick up the golden mask, he first bumps it with his hand and it wobbles a short distance across the table on its "stone" base, revealing that it has nowhere near the weight of real gold and stone.
