Corrected entry: When Jen start to run away, she arrives to a kind of restaurant. Two fighters speak to her in a very agressive way and challenge her. First she has the green destiny sword in one hand, later she cuts the fighter's arms but the sword now appears in her other hand.
Corrected entry: At the end, when Jen goes to get some antidote, notice how she really had to hurry, but she took the time to change her clothes anyway... (01:46:00)
Corrected entry: In the scene where Jen remembers back to the desert where she first met Lo, when she is chasing him across the desert and they stop by the dried up water creek. They get off their horses and Lo gets a water bottle, drinks from it and passes it to Jen. She drinks from it and throws it back to which he catches it Jen attacks Lo. The camera angle changes to see them begin to roll down a sand dune but the water bottle has now disappeared. (00:56:00)
Corrected entry: In the scene where Jen and Lo are in the cave in the desert and Jen stabs Lo in the chest, the blood starts dripping down from about an inch above where he was actually stabbed. (01:04:00)
Corrected entry: In the scene where Jen is kicking everyone's butt in the restaurant, take a good look where she "supposedly" knocked out two men before having to confront the big bald guy on the stairs. Look to your right and you'll see that the guy never falls down but just backs up to where he thinks he's out of frame. You'll need the widescreen version to see it because it's cut off in pan & scan. (01:20:00)
Corrected entry: In the fight scene with all the weapons, Michelle Yeoh grabs a gold post (which causes blue sparks when it comes in contact with the green destiny). In the first few seconds with this weapon she misses and destroys a weapon stand. In the next shot, the weapon stand is intact. (01:25:50)
Corrected entry: There is a scene in the film where the little Chinese girl beats the crap out of everyone in some kind of bar. She beats one of the guys up and he falls out of the balcony and breaks it. Then, a few minutes later, it shows a view of the bar from the outside and the balcony is completely intact.
Corrected entry: When Jen and Lo are chasing each other in the desert, she is riding a white horse. When she rides up to the tribe, she is on a brown horse. After she kicks everyone's butt, she jumps back on her horse and it is white again.
Corrected entry: In the final swordfight scene between Michelle Yeoh's character, Shu Lien, and Zhang Ziyihi's character, Jen, in Shu Lien's security headquarters, Shu Lien is swinging a heavy wooden stick that crushes everything it hits, including the floor tiles. However in a subsequent shot in the same scene shot from above none of the floor tiles are smashed.
Revealing mistake: Just after Li Mu Bai tells Shu Lien that they are very close to her headquarters and that she should check in, we are treated to two 'time pass' shots of forest. The second of these features some very obvious power or telephone lines in the lower right corner of the screen. (01:22:40)
