Editorial Reviews

Martial arts legend Jackie Chan stars as Jack, a world-renowned archaeologist who has begun having mysterious dreams of a past life as a warrior in ancient China. When a fellow scientist asks for Jack's help in locating the mausoleum of China's first emperor, the past collides violently with the present as Jack discovers his amazing visions are based in fact. Assisted by the spirit of a noble princess, Jack follows a mystical trail that soon finds him battling the forces of the legendary emperor, as well as the henchmen of a modernday tomb raider, as he seeks to uncover history's greatest secret -- and his own destiny. Featuring Bollywood actress Mallika Sherawat (Kis Kis Ki Kismat, Guru).

3.0 out of 5 stars Indi-"Chan"-a Jones style martial arts film May 6, 2008
How could I resist the baaad pun? "Myth" is actually a renamed Chinese film from 2005 called "San Wa."

Briefly, Jack (Chan) is an archaeologist who dreams of a past life as a General (Meng Yi) in Ancient China.

When he's asked by a colleague, William (Tony Leung Ka Fai) to help find a scientfic discovery relating to defying gravity, Jack returns to China and faces his dream princess Ok-soo (Hee-seon Kim) and his own past failure as the General to protect her.

The story's a bit of Indiana Jones and a bit of the fallen Samurai myth. I very rarely watch subtitled films, but "Myth" was easy enough to follow and provided enough amusement to make the rental worthwhile.

5.0 out of 5 stars One my favorite Jackie Chen films December 21, 2007
I really enjoyed this film and so did my kids. I heard about this film through a friend of mine and I must say that I was pleasantly suprised. The acting was pretty good and so were the action scenes. I would love to have seen this movie at the theaters.

1.0 out of 5 stars Warning - edited version March 4, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Although Amazon says this is the full 122 minute version, they are mistaken. It is the edited-for-the-US-market 96 minute version. If that is what you are looking for, then this would get more stars. I've wasted several people's time and money over this mistake, but it is not what it says. The original Chinese version with English subtitles is the real 122 minute version.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest epic love story of all time! February 27, 2006
By Bo Chen
This is one of the greatest epic love story of all time!

The immersion factor of the love story is wonderful, and the 'feeling' of love is pretty darn real, someone unique not found in most love stories.

Feel free to email me @ if anyone has more information on the rational behind the epic love story / plot in MYTH. It'd like to hear an enlightened perspective on why the movie ended the way it did. Jackie Chan's own website doesn't go into the philosophical aspects of the love epic and I find that a little disappointing, since I would have to either figure it out on my own, or seek other people's opinions.

In particular, even if the Jack was a reincarnated version of General Meng Yi, why would Princess/Concubine Ok-soo not follow him out of the collapsing cave? I could understand her reasoning that its not the `actual' person General Meng Yi, but it IS his soul, so in essence it's still Meng Yi, because there is no other in the universe that is or could ever be more like the original Meng Yi. And since Ok-soo somehow has the dedication and conviction to persevere for all eternity waiting for him, it would seem silly that she would have found him (his soul, and thus the `essence' of Meng Yi) at long last and refuse to go with him. So she kept her promise until the end, waiting for the Meng Yi she now knows will never come, and gets here original wish of death 2000 years later being crushed by falling rocks inside a massive cave.

Or maybe Meng Yi did keep his promise. For the short period of time that Meng Yi spends with Ok-soo alone in the cave, perhaps Meng Yi used Jack's physical body in order to finally be with Ok-soo again?

5.0 out of 5 stars Jackie Chan: The Man, The Myth. September 21, 2010
Jackie Chan stars in one of his most grand and epic movies yet in this exciting action adventure film concerning a modern day archaeologist named Jack Chan who has mysterious dreams of being a great General from the ancient Chi'in Dynasty of China who falls in love with a Princess that he can never have as his own.

One day Jack's friend Tony informs him of an ancient anti-gravity device that can be found in an old tomb in Dasar, India and so the adventure begins. Along the way Jack and his friend get into all kinds of ruckus including lots of the trademark Chan comedy/martial arts fighting sequences, and even some ancient Chinese battle scenes featuring a 1500 person army and over 200 horses. The ancient Chinese costumes of the soldiers look very authentic and beautiful, and the scenery in the film features many wonderful and eye-popping places such as Hong Kong, Shanghai, India, Beijeng, and even the Great Wall of China.

One of the best scenes of the film involves the battle between the good guys and the bad guys in modern day China inside of a huge ancient Chinese Chi'in Dynasty mausoleum hidden within a gigantic enclosed cave behind a waterfall. Special rocks with mysterious powers cause the items within the tomb to be weightless as if in space and this setting is where the the final battle between good and evil takes place.

The movie is loaded with all the great and wild choreographed fighting scenes and zany stunts that Jackie Chan's movies are famous for. It also has a lot of heartfelt and touching moments to it as well, and there's even a love story involved on top of everything else. This movie literally has it all. Theres even a full length commentary from the man himself Jackie Chan as he tells you all about the behind the scenes making of the movie.

If you are a fan of Jackie Chan, or martial arts movies, or even action adventures, then you will not want to miss this great film!

3.0 out of 5 stars One of Jackie Chan's better recent efforts December 28, 2007
The Myth initially feels like Jackie Chan is reinventing his Armour of God movies just as he recently reinvented the Police Story series, with a slightly darker tone. The film's two plot strands aren't always as complimentary as they could be, with the historical backstory of Chan's general falling in love with the Emperor's latest concubine far more interesting than the modern-day adventurer Chan's efforts to uncover their secret. It's not always successful, not least because of some poorly timed CGI, but it does offer an enjoyable fight on a glue factory assembly line that plays out like a demented version of twister and a spectacular battle scene (Stanley Tong is clearly a fan of Anthony Mann, copying several set-ups from The Fall of the Roman Empire) en route to the finale. And the last half hour is impressive stuff, be it a surprisingly bloody (for Chan) one-against-all battle that sees him fighting atop a mountain of corpses or the scenes in a giant weightless mausoleum that make imaginative use of superior wire work and which do carry a sense of wonder to them.

Surprisingly, the extras on the Asian 2-disc set are all subtitled in English, including the audio commentary, so for fans that might be a better bet than Sony's US release.
