Directed by: Michael Ritchie
Starring: Charles Dance, Charlotte Lewis, Eddie Murphy, J.L. Reate
Genres: Action, Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy, Mystery
Visible crew/equipment: When you see the plane flying to Tibet you can clearly see the blades of the helicopter from which the shot was taken at the top of the screen.
Revealing mistake: When Sardo is aiming at Jarrell running you can see Kee Nang hiding behind a post, looking to the side waiting for her turn to get into the shot.
Continuity mistake: When the old man is talking to Chandler on the porch in Tibet, he picks his nose with his pinky finger. When it cuts back to him, he's picking with his index finger instead.
Trivia: When Chandler cracks a joke and upsets the dragon lady, she throws a fit. Doctor Hong calms her down in Chinese. He is saying, 'I am sorry, I am sorry, he has no manners.'
Trivia: The Golden Child only speaks once in the entire film, saying, "I know".
Trivia: The boy who is the Golden Child isn't really a boy at all. The director's cast a young girl named J.L. Reate to play the part. As for the lack of hair, no prosthetics or rubber used here, as they really did shave her head bald.
Question: Does anybody know why Sardo Numspa can't pronounce J's? Such as when he pronounces Chandler Jarell as Yarell. I've looked but can't seem to find any explanation.
Chosen answer: A lot of non english speaking countries have trouble pronouncing the letter J as it does not appear in their alphabet. It is a fairly recent addition to the english language too. Previously words that now start with a J would have began with an "I" sound as in "Iarell".
