Trivia

The police station was actually shot on the fifth floor of West Island School in Hong Kong. The meeting room is actually the study room of the upper school area, and it also doubles as the infirmary. Other scenes take place right outside of that room. In fact you can see the blue lockers in the background. See more »

Goofs

In a meeting early in the movie, the discussion is interrupted by Chan's belated entrance. As Chan takes his seat, we see computer screens behind him. Between shots, these screens change three times though everyone in the room is seated at the table and the people nearest the computers are facing away from the keyboards. See more »

Not too shabby.
29 September 2002 | by (SF) – See all my reviews

The actors were all new to me. I've not watched HK films in years before watching this one, and compared to the horrible movies i've seen before, the ones that left me wanting a refund for my time, this wasn't so bad. The faces were fresh and some of them were just eye candy, a definite incentive to see this film again and again. Of course, if you are one to watch for interesting plots, HK films aren't for you.
