(at around 1h 50 mins) In the end of the movie, when Jack closes the book, on the cover it is written "The Mnth" instead of "The Myth". The difference may be hardly noticeable because of the stylized characters. See more »
This is a wonderful movie with a mixture of many cultures in it. Just try and admire this movie and you will notice how they merge everything together. The language used in this movie is of course Cantonese as it is a movie from Hong Kong. Then there's Mandarin and Korean language and also at some parts they spoke Indian (I have no idea it's Hindi or Tamil language). They also communicated in English because they wanted to potray the modern world as English is known as the international language. The actors also come from a variety of races. Though the things that occurred in this movie might seem quite far-fetched, the title "The Myth" explains it all. Whether it's comedy, love, friendship, past, present, technology or wonders, this movie got it all! By the way, the soundtracks match very well with the movie, I just can't stop listening to the theme song "Endless Love" sung by Jackie and Kim.
