Revealing Mistakes
In the end of the movie, when Jack closes the book, on the cover it is written "The Mnth" instead of "The Myth". The difference may be hardly noticeable because of the stylized characters.
Due to Mallika Sherawat's racy image in Bollywood, rumors circulated that she landed the role over many other Indian actresses (Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Lara Dutta, Priyanka Chopra) because she was willing to do full frontal nudity in this film. When these rumors were spread, Stanley Tong and Jackie Chan held a special press conference in India to say that they picked Mallika over many others because of her great charm and genuine acting talent, and that the film didn't even have a kissing scene, let alone full frontal nudity.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was the original choice to play the Indian princess but she was on tour at the time and her busy schedule didn't allow her to take the role.

Hee-seon Kim, one of the female leads, is from Korea. She learned her Chinese lines by memorizing the sounds. Sometimes production would change the script a little, but had to keep Hee-seon's lines about the same because of her limited Chinese.

Jackie Chan and Hee-seon Kim sang the theme song "Endless Love". Chan sings Mandarin whereas Seon sings in Korean.
