Johnny Kung is talking to his father on the phone, and Kung Wei tells him to call him on his pager if he needs anything. As Kung Wei reads his pager number on the phone, and the subtitles show the numbers - 1177131910, Johnny writes them on the brick wall. But he misses the last "1" between the 9 and 0. He memorizes the number and then wipes it off the wall - but he would have the wrong number memorized. See more »

Love it!

This is one of my all time favourite Jet Li films, and I've seen all but 4 of them (that have been released anyways). I thought the plot was VERY good and the acting was top notch too. The fight scenes were very good and well...it was just amazing. Most importantly, an incredible rarity, it didn't have a kid who annoyed the hell out of me! Quite an impressive feat.
