* AlwaysIdenticalTwins: Averted. The twin brothers are incredibly lookalike, but one of them is slim and lean while the other is much taller and bigger. Actually, aside from the credits and casting names, they are never stated to be ''twin'' brothers, but in case they are not, they have a StrongFamilyResemblance.



* DirtyCop: Richard and practically his entire department. He's got a HookersAndBlow operation on the side.

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 it on his own]], but it went too fast for the camera, so they had wires to slow it down). Critics considered it lukewarm (51% on RottenTomatoes), and it was a moderate box office success.
