* CoolSword: Apparently, you need magic to draw it, so it gets one flashy action scene where the scabbard is enough, and another when it's ''not''. Otherwise, it has on conspicuous failure in the opening sequence, and is understandably mistaken for junk.

* AdaptationDistillation: It's a mix of several of the books. Le Guin said what confused her most about the film was that she kept expecting it to follow one of the original plots. If you really want to be specific it mixes the storyline of The Farthest Shore with some elements of Tehanu.
