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.

Jack & co. escape Lo Pan's place. Wang is reunited with Miao Yin. The good guys have a small celebration. Egg decides it's time for a vacation.

Jack Burton: Hey, I'm a reasonable guy. But I've just experienced some very unreasonable things.
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.
Question: When Lightning is crushed by the statue at the end of the movie, he sends out dozens of bolts of energy before he dies. The final wisp of electricity forms a Chinese character. Does anyone know what it means?
