When Inspector Yang lands on the red sports car driven by Kevin she breaks the windshield removing the top part of the windshield frame and rearview mirror. In the next shots the frame and rearview mirror are back in place.
The windscreen frame that breaks is a clearly-visible dummy breakaway fitted in place of the Midget Mk II's normal frame; it is taller than the real windscreen.
Also, the Midget Mk II was fitted with triplex-type safety glass which has a middle layer of clear sealant and would break but not fly into pieces, and the early Midgets were fitted with light-alloy windscreen pillars that would most likely snap near the base under that sort of impact. See more »
Probably my fave Jackie flick so far, this has great story, GREAT stunts, great action, and great work from an awesome cast. The helicopter/train finale is an absolute rollercoaster. I'm fortunate enough to have scored a chinese-language DVD, and this cut is definitely better than the Americanized version, with more exposition, and probably more MICHELLE YEOH! She's the greatest, nearly upstaging Jackie every moment she's onscreen, and they work great together! And of course the terrific Yuen Wah always makes a good villain! All around a great, slick, fast paced action adventure, that anyone could enjoy! A blast all around! Oh, and let's not forget the gorgeous Maggie Cheung, pretty funny here...
