In the final plane scene, that is really Yuen Biao hanging from the rope 4,000 feet in the air. He had also trained for, and had wanted to do, the jump from the plane but due to New Zealand restrictions and insurance reasons was not allowed to and a professional parachutist was used. See more »
In the Mandarin cut of the film, the character of Cindy Si survives. However, there are still a few shots in this cut during the fight between Hsia and Wong in which you can see Cindy's dead body pinned to the wall in the background. See more »
This movie kicks serious butt. Like the majority of Hong Kong flicks, the script is rushed and uneven, the acting is secondary, and the "plot" is occasionally laughable as it lurches awkwardly from set-piece to set-piece. But none of this matters -- Yuen Biao is completely insane, and brings a vitality to his action scenes that a "big star" like Jet Li can't hope to match. The chase and demolition derby in the parking garage is alone worth the price of admission. Cynthia Rothrock holds her own, for the most part, showing energy and interest that will fade rapidly in the coming years as she "graduates" to low-budget American fare. (But check out the obvious stuntman on the railing leap!) Great goofball fun. If it's playing at a Chinese festival, see it in the theatre with a crowd of like-minded fans.
