* ShownTheirWork: No matter [[SoBadItsGood how inaccurate the rest of the movie is]], the writers ''did'' get some facts on Archimedes right, notably how he reflected the sun's light as a weapon and the basic circumstances of his death. They also knew that Leonardo da Vinci was called that because he really was from Vinci, rather than treating it as his surname (he didn't have one).

As far as movies riffed on by ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' go, this one isn't one of the worst but also not one of the best. It's at least watchable and usually fairly fun, but also notably confusing and nebulous, especially with regards to its [[AnachronismStew temporal]] and [[ArtisticLicenseGeography physical]] setting.

* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: Here's everything the audience knows about where the story is set: It's not England, but people do speak English. It's ruled by a Mannerjay (not a real world title). It's the dark ages. That's basically it.
