** In one scene, Stephen states "I don't mean to show others I'm capable: I just want to tell others that I can get back what I've lost". This dialogue is similar to the one used by Mark Lee in ''Film/ABetterTomorrow''. Furthermore, another reference to the film is used when [[DamnItFeelsGoodToBeAGangsta Stephen lights his cigar using a Hong Kong bank note.]]
