When John Lee is about shoot his mark (the son of Stan 'Zeedo' Zedkov), the scope cover on the front of the scope is not the correct type of cover. Typically, the red buttoned scope cover is used at the rear side of the scope. Butler Creek makes these type of scope covers and the red buttoned one's are designated as "rear scope cover".

An excellent movie that I've enjoyed through many viewings
I suppose this is actually a B movie, but there's something about this movie that keeps me coming back to see it again every few months. Maybe it's the rather unique (for Hollywood, anyway) relationship between Meg and John. I mean, they don't even so much as kiss each other and barely touch at all! But I think they make the screen sizzle, nonetheless.
I must admit I love the action in this movie, too. Every once in a while I wonder how a small time forger learned to fight and shoot like she does, but then I blissfully ignore it and just enjoy the movie.
Great action scenes, wonderful relationship development and great acting by Mira and Yun-Fat Chow make this a movie I'm sure I'll see many more times.
