Trivia

According to rumor, Jackie Chan's role was originally intended for a South Korean actor, but Writer and Director John Woo thought the South Korean was too old and slow, and so fired him and brought in Chan instead. However, this story is contradicted in the new DVD commentary, as Fight Choreographer Sammo Kam-Bo Hung is quoted as saying Jackie was in from the beginning. See more »
