* HairTriggerTemper / JerkAss: Inspector Richard screams profanities at people in practically every scene, so much so that one wonders how he never blows his cover.

* TouchOfDeath / YouAreAlreadyDead: The [[TitleDrop film's title refers to]] a technique in which an acupuncture needle is stabbed into a PressurePoint in someone's neck, causing all the blood to flow to the head thus causing aneurysm. Jian does it to Richard in the climax.

* RuthlessForeignGangsters: Averted with Big. He's painted as a pretty ruthless Triad big-shot, but Richard shows himself to be the more vile bastard very early in the film, taking over as the ''real'' BigBad.

Liu Jian (Li), a Chinese intelligence officer, comes to [[GayParee Paris]] to help the vice squad apprehend Chinese drug lord Mr. Big and his unknown French connection. He joins forces with French police official Jean-Pierre Richard (Tchéky Karyo) in order to do it. Alas, it turns out that Richard is Big's connection, and that Richard is planning to murder Big. When Jian discovers, tries and fails to stop this, Richard frames him for the murder. Jian is able to escape with a tape that proves his innocence, but he loses it soon after. Just when it seems he has nowhere to turn, he meets Jessica, a HookerWithAHeartOfGold whom Richard has forced into prostitution and heroin-addiction, and who was present at the site of Big's murder and thus can prove Jian's innocence. Alas, [[IHaveYourWife Richard also has Jessica's daughter under his thumb in an orphanage]], and she refuses to help until Jian gets her. Jian sets off to do it, evading Richard's mooks and seeking to slay him at the same time.

* BadAss: Liu Jian. He is the kind of guy who can clear out a whole room of black belts and make it look easy.

* LameComeback: Richard's comeback to the TitleDrop is "kiss my ass", which would be lame even if he weren't completely paralyzed.

Li made the film as a result of fans requesting more realistic fight scenes following ''Film/RomeoMustDie''. Consequently, only two scenes required CGI enhancement (the flames from the grenade explosion and the billiard ball after Li's character kicks it) and only one scene involved wire work (Cyril Raffaelli's 1 1/4 somersault, which [[RealityIsUnrealistic he could do on his own]], but it went too fast for the camera, so they had wires to slow it down).

* VillainousFriendship: Richard towards Max the pimp. Unlike the rest of his henchmen which he considers just pawns, Max is the only one Richard sees more like a friend. [[spoiler: He appears quite sad when he die.]]
