Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): When Sparrow is talking to the monk at the edge of the desert, she says "our mission, is not one of peace...". At every other time in the movie (except the end), she refers to herself in the 3rd person.
  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Jason makes reference to the game Virtua Fighter 2, and states that a character uses the "Buddha's Palm" technique. The only Virtua Fighter character that uses the move is Lei Fei. Lei Fei did not appear in the series until the fourth installment, and didn't get the "Buddha's Palm" move until Virtua Fighter 5.
  • The film is based on the Chinese epic story "Journey to the West" a fictionalized account of the legends around the Buddhist monk Tang Sanzhuang's pilgrimage to India during the Tang dynasty in order to obtain Buddhist scriptures. Many programs have been based on this tale, such as television show "Saiyûki" (1978), and anime series Dragon Ball Z (Dubbed) (1996) holds a few loose facts from the same story.
  • Jackie Chan described the first day of shooting as "very relaxing" because the shots only required drama and walking, with no action
