Corrected entry: As we see later in the film Lo Pan passes through objects when in his "young form" as he has no physical body. However, in the scene where Jack first encounters him by running "through" him with his truck, we see the truck actually hit Lo Pan and he falls under it. Then when Jack gets out of the truck, Lo Pan is behind it. Lo Pan should have passed through the truck rather than have been run over by it.Jason Hoffman
Corrected entry: When Jack and Wang are questioned by Rain before they meet Lo-Pan, Rain blows rubber balls at Jack with punching force. As you look as he casts the second, Kurt Russel doubles over before the (inserted) ball actually hits.
Corrected entry: In the street fight scene, Chang Sing and Wing Kong fight each other with swords, and Wing Kong wins. But as he stabs his adversary, the blade goes somewhere past the hip (play in slow-mo).
Corrected entry: When Thunder brings Eddie into the chamber where Jack and Wang are, he looks right at Wang who is supposed to be tied to the chair. Since Jack cut Wang free, Thunder should have noticed the ropes were not around his wrists anymore.
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.tw_stuart
Trivia: Kim Cattrall was surprised when she got to the set for the prison scene one morning, as no one told her she would be hogtied for the entire scene (in the story, it was due to a deleted scene when she made trouble for her guards). She endured it like a professional, occasionally having her gag removed so she could drink water. When asked by John Carpenter whether or not she was uncomfortable, she simply replied 'I've been in tighter situations than this!'
