Apart from the New York City exterior shots and selected interiors, the majority of the movie was shot in Hong Kong, including the bar interior for the opening gunfight. See more »

The Japanese cut of the film, footage-wise, is virtually identical to the Hong Kong cut. However, the scenes in New York maintain their English dialogue, while the scenes that take place in Hong Kong (which is the bulk of the film) are in Cantonese. The biggest difference is that the Japanese cut is the only version to contain an end credits outtakes montage. This version has been available on laserdisc as well as a 2014 Japanese "Extreme Edition" blu-ray. See more »
(57%) Back in the mid 80's Mr Chan didn't much care for this movie as he felt it was made not fully utilising his talent, for which I can understand. Featured here there's none of his trademark comedic fights, or insanely dangerous stunts, instead we get a gritter, more typically 1980's R-rated American action flick with plenty of shoot-outs, fist fights and explosions. The level of strong language, along with quite a lot of nudity also sets this apart from the usual Chan flick, but I cannot say I didn't enjoy this. The action is solid with plenty of it, and for a medium budgeted 80's action flick this is better than average.
