Frequently Asked Questions
Basically there are three different versions around. First of all one has to differentiate between the original Hong Kong Theatrical Version and the Director's Cut. The latter features two extended scenes and some outtakes before the end credits and runs approx. 10 minutes longer than the Theatrical Version.
There's also an International Cut available that runs more than 20 minutes shorter than the Asian versions. More than a 100 scenes were altered.
At the end of the movie, Team Shaolin defeated Team Evil and won the championship. Sing's cyclone kick scored the winning goal. This can be clearly seen on the scoreboard during the final Trophy ceremony. Although many people believe Team Evil was leading 1-0 prior to Sing's cyclone kick, this is also not true. When the Team Evil player kicked the ball into Empty Hands' face and knocked him through the goal, the ball did not enter the net.
