When the copter carries Kevin over the locomotive's stack, soot from the black smoke smudges the back of his light-coloured trousers. In later shots, the soot is not there.
Also, the stack gasses from an operating locomotive would be so hot that he would probably be badly burnt/scalded. See more »
Chan Ka Kui:
[after breaking Panther out of prison]
Okay, now down that road is a small village that leads to a town.
Chan Ka Kui:
[prepares to leave]
Where you going?
Chan Ka Kui:
Huh? They payed me $2,000 to get you out of there. The rest doesn't interest me.
Listen, I like you. You're a good man, and I could use someone like you. I'll take you to Hong Kong for something big.
Chan Ka Kui:
Hong Kong's too far, forget it. Just give me $500 more.

I've seen a lot of Jackie Chan films and its rare to find gem in the many jewels in the films he's made. There are real drama films like Crime Story, or the frentic action in the original police story, there's the three-brother action in Project A, there's the frenctic kung-fu in Drunken Master 2, and then there's this gem.
This is certainly the best in the police story series, the action is fantastic, the humor brilliant, the story well put together. The duo of Michelle Kahn (Yeoh) and Chan is amazing, and Yeoh almost steals the show in her own right - her persona and her instance to do her own stunts (like Chan) makes her a marvel to watch - this is why she is so damn good in Tomorrow Never Dies, but its a shame the director of TND never captured her in the same way Stanley Tong does!
Chan maybe getting older, and its getting harder and harder for him to surpass his best. In that respect, this is possibly the last, best action film we'll get to see. I enjoyed it, and I'm sure most chan fans will enjoy it too.
My Rating: 9/10.
