Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): The silent Monk tells Jason they should attack "In two nights, when the moon will be darker." But later that night in the balcony scene with Jason and Golden Sparrow the moon is clearly waxing, and will be almost half full in two nights - brighter not darker.
  • The filmmakers intentionally used the traditional Chinese phrase "Gung Fu" in the movie. This created problems for Jackie Chan, who was used to saying the Anglisized "Kung Fu."
  • The characters are mostly taken from Chinese mythology and adventure pulps. - Lu Yan is a famous Taoist Saint (He's better known as Iron-crutch Li, one of the Eight Immortals). - The Jade Emperor is the ruler of the Heavens in Chinese myth. - The Monkey King is from a 16th Century fantasy epic by Wu Cheng En. - Golden Sparrow was the name of the character played by Cheng Pei Pei in a number of Shaw Bros films like Da zui xia (1966). - The White Haired Demoness is the anti-heroine of a pulp novel by Liang Yusheng (filmed twice) with the same title.
  • According to Jackie Chan,when he and Jet Li shot their fight together, they found it relaxing and easy: "I have not worked with someone whom I'm comfortable with, in terms of movements, rhythm and natural reactions, in the last 10 years. I have done many fight scenes with others but there were usually more than 10 takes, which is a waste of time as the person may forget his moves and unnecessary injuries. When I fought with Jet, our actions were quick. We also didn't have to do the same stunt over 20 times."
