Did You Know?
Loosely based (as acknowledged in most versions) on the real story of millionaire Teddy Wang, who was kidnapped twice, first in 1983 and again in 1990. After the second kidnapping he was never found (in most versions of the film he is thrown off the kidnappers' ship, which is allegedly what really happened) and in 1999 he was officially declared dead.

Before the kidnapping, when we first see Wng and his wife in the car, as she reclines her seat because she is felling unwell, they are not wearing their seatbelts. In subsequent shots, they are both wearing them. See more
