Trivia

The motorcyclist who raced Sky in the opening racing sequence, is seen wearing a replica helmet of Mick Doohan, which was mass produced by Arai in the early 1990s. Both bikes raced by him and Sky represented the Rothmans and Repsol (respectively) color scheme of the Honda Racing Corporation, whom Doohan raced for that decade. See more »

Memories!
6 January 2003 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

I like this film! It's not the greatest of movies to come out of HK, but it's fun and fast, with an edge! I also had the good luck to be in HK for the millenium celebrations when this movie was showing, so I saw it on the big screen in the heart of HK, so maybe that atmosphere made the movie better in my memory. I'd love to see it again if anyone knows where I can get a copy!
