When the copter carries Kevin over the locomotive's stack, soot from the black smoke smudges the back of his light-coloured trousers. In later shots, the soot is not there.
Also, the stack gasses from an operating locomotive would be so hot that he would probably be badly burnt/scalded. See more »
Chan Ka Kui:
Super cops in Hong Kong are cheap and plentiful like commodities in supermarkets.

The international/export version from Golden Harvest is identical to the Hong Kong one, except for localized credits and dialogue. See more »
After the dissapointing Police Story 2, Jackie steps off the director chair and let's Stanley Tong do the job.
This entry in the series tones down the acrobatic fights trademarked by Chan, focusing more in vehicle chases, shoot-outs and regular (but well coreographed of course) hand to hand fights, and instead of Ka Kui running around Hong Kong, he travels from country to country while infiltrating a gang of drug dealers.
Funnily enough this feels more of a natural sequel to the original than the jarring Police Story 2.
The addition of Michelle Yeoh's Capt Yang brings a lot of freshness and contrast to Chan's Ka Kui wacky and hot-blooded persona, and steals the show for the most part.
The only downside is that most of the secondary characters from the previous movies are either ditched or have just small roles.
Still, you can go wrong with this one.
