Trivia
This movie takes a cinematic swipe at Jackie Chan, with whom director Wong Jing had worked previously on the City Hunter live-action film. After the release of City Hunter, Chan not only disowned the film, but attacked Wong personally in the press. Through the character of Frankie Lone, Wong insinuated that Chan was actually a boozing womanizer and a fraud who did not really do his own stunts after all.

Frankie tricks the henchman searching for him and his dad by placing his sneaker just barely visible behind the wall and jumps the guy from behind after he shoots at the shoe - falling flat on his face. We then see Frankie doing pushups with both his shoes on again.

Q
What are the differences between the British BBFC 18 DVD Version and the Australian Version?
A
Regarding violence, the British DVD is completely uncut. Furthermore, the British DVD features different opening credits. The difference starts with the scene in which Kit Li is screaming desperately. Here, the picture freezes in the British version; then, the English credits are faded-in in white writing on a red background. On the Australian VHS, the wreckage of the burning bus is shown again; then, Kit Li is dragged away by his colleagues. In the background, the narrator says "Explosives expert Kit Li loses his wife and son in an explosion. He quits the service. Two years later in Hong Kong"; the sentence is faded-in in Asian letters as well. Subsequently, one sees further shots of the burning bus. A detailed comparison between both versions with pictures can be found here.
