Trivia

The 'torpedo-digging' trick Jen Moo uses in the final fight is a standard trick of all Hong Kong ninja movies made in the 80's. See more »

Goofs

When Leong Kit throws his ball and Jen Moo attachs his explosive charge, he has to bend back to do the job, since the ball bounces back low. But Leong Kit catches it at chest level, whereas - judging by the angle the ball was returning - the ball should be headed for his groin. See more »
