Trivia This movie set the record for the most bullets fired in an American film. See more »
Goofs After John and Meg escape from Wei's gang, they return to John's hideout, where he treats her dislocated patella - which looks amazingly like the real thing, makeup or no. John pops the kneecap back into place with no difficulty. However, anyone who has ever suffered that particular injury knows that it would be impossible to immediately stand, walk, run and jump as Meg does when the evil-doers subsequently chase them from the apartment. The tissue damage involved takes weeks, if not months, to heal enough to allow that kind of activity. See more »
