Format: DVD
The Hong Kong version DVD is 122 minutes long and includes the original DTS encoding.

Is this the chopped and hacked 96 minute US version that has DD 5.1 only?

If so, it's yet another case of the "arrogant pirates at the CRIA/RIAA" ripping-off their captive market in North America.

There's no excuse for this beyond unbridled greed (and incompetence).

A great great film! beautiful story, beautiful scenery!
A great Chan movie. If you are looking for an martial art film, this is NOT one of them. This is a serious Chan!
The DVD cover is not attractive but this is an amazing film!
One of Chans best to my opinion!

Indi-"Chan"-a Jones style martial arts film May 6 2008
By R. Kyle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
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.

Warning - edited version March 4 2010
By ART - Published on Amazon.com
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.

One my favorite Jackie Chen films Dec 21 2007
By N. Mirakov - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
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.

Jackie Chan: The Man, The Myth. Sept. 21 2010
By Jingle Bell Rock~N~Rolla - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
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!

One of the greatest epic love story of all time! Feb. 27 2006
By Bo Chen - Published on Amazon.com
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 @ bochen02@gmail.com 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? Maybe the whole reason Jack gets all these weird dreams was because Meng Yi had to keep his promise to Ok-soo, and he had chosen Jack to be the medium to use his body to get to Ok-soo. So in that case Jack is not the Meng Yi reincarnated at all, but rather the spirit of Meng Yi has temporality usurped Jacks body so that two could be together for a short while. So they both kept their promise. Ok-soo waited for Meng Yi for 2000 years. (Personally I applaud both Ok-soo and that soldier protecting her inside to cave for not screwing around with each other, cause 2000 years inside a damn cave with nothing to do can get quite frustrating, but I guess after about the first 200 years they got used to it) Meng Yi's general kept his promise. And Meng Yi himself kept his promise too, he did come back, he just didn't specify for how long.

They (Ming Yi and Ok-soo) lived a lifetime in the few moments they had together before Meng Yi's spirit disintegrated back into the death of which he came from, and Ok-soo and the Qin era soldier died in the caves. In the end this is what would have happened had Ming Yi not have been killed on the battlefield that fateful day 2000 years ago. He and Ok-soo would have been together, be happy and in love, and eventually they would have both died, except it turned out to be prolonged for two millenniums and the happily ever after stage was cut short. But they got what they wanted. So good story.
