This movie was based on the Chinese epic story "Journey to the West", a fictionalized account of the legends around the Buddhist monk Tang Sanzhuang's pilgrimage to India during the Tang Dynasty, in order to obtain Buddhist scriptures. Many programs have been based on this tale, such as the television show Monkey (1978), and anime series Dragon Ball (1986) held a few loose facts from the same story. See more »
As Ni Chang prepares to fire (should be shoot - fire is for guns) the arrow which hits Lu Yan, she places it on the wrong side of the bow. An arrow held as she positions it would rotate away from the bow as the bow is drawn. See more »

Jackie Chan and Jet Li are credited together before the title. Jackie Chan's name is spelled out horizontally, but Jet Li's is spelled out vertically, and the same "J" is used for both. See more »
I have been a big fan of Jet Li/ Jackie Chan since I can remember. All I have to say is that they deserve better. A movie that consists of both these remarkable actors should be incredible and unforgettable, but, in my opinion, this movie can only be remembered probably because it's their first tandem. I don't know what the writers in this movie are thinking. They should have watched the old movies of these two and studied it. They should have written a story that will compliment both their strengths in the screen (not just their martial arts techniques), and the tone of the movie is well-off. Needless to say, if you want to see a feel-good, relatively entertaining then this movie is definitely your cup-of- tea.
