10 mistakes

Continuity mistake: When Jack Burton and the rest of the gang escape from the Wing Kong Trade Centre the first time, the guards fire at the left side of the bus breaking the windows and making holes in the bodywork. When we see the bus a few seconds later as it is driving away, it appears undamaged.

Continuity mistake: Toward the end of the film, when the creature captures Gracie, he jumps through a hole in the floor with her on his back. As he falls through the hole, his feet fall out in front of him and he is shown almost prone. Yet when the shot changes he lands firmly on his feet.

Continuity mistake: During the escape from Wing Kong Trading, Jack climbs up from the sewer to figure out the escape route. He runs to the door and almost immediately behind him, everyone has managed to climb up from the sewer much faster than would be possible.

Revealing mistake: When Egg Shen helps the others escape by using a crossbow-and-winch device, he fires the bolt into a stone. When the bolt digs in, the stone shudders slightly (since its made of wood or plastic, and no fixed part of the floor).

Continuity mistake: During the escape from Wing Kong Trading, they all jump into a pool and swim through a pipe which is not big enough for people to pass each other. Despite the fact that Margo and Jack are in the water before Gracie, she manages to come up for air before both of them.

Trivia

The weapons Lightning uses in the street-fight scene are known as ema-piercers - sharpened spikes mounted on finger or hand rings, capable of rotation. However, the rotation usually comes from the motion the user makes in combat; Lightning apparently uses his own power to make them spin like rotors.
