Trivia

The 'torpedo-digging' trick Jen Moo uses in the final fight is a standard trick of all Hong Kong ninja movies made in the 80's. See more »

Goofs

In the final scene when Chee makes his remark about femininity being the best weapon, Ching and Jen Moo simultaneously execute a flying kick against him. But when Chee starts talking, both fighters are just about ten feet away from him; but their running starts come from a longer distance - at no point do they step backwards. See more »
