Mark Aldred, who played the Russian crime boss (uncredited) was fired from his job as an English teacher in a Hong Kong primary school because the principal had discovered his role in this film. After a lengthy hearing, an industrial tribunal awarded Aldred HK$11,600 as a contract gratuity. However, it threw out his claim for around $79,000 in damages and dismissed Aldred's claims that his sacking was unlawful. See more »

In Germany two versions were released on DVD:
the cut version has a "Not under 18" rating and runs ca 1 min. shorter (rape scene was edited)
the uncut version which has no FSK rating but a JK/SPIO approval
this movie has hot babes, and hot action. That's the good part. The bad part is some woeful dialogUE, and an unconvincing lurch into a romance of sorts. Believe me, i have nothing against movies following unpredictable patterns if they work. See the host as a very good example. But here, and I guess because of the bad dialogue particularly in an ice cream trunk sequence. the action sequences are the only things of merit. Thankfully there are enough of them to make watching this movie worthwhile.
