* The massive ChaseScene at the climax of the film involving the three protagonists, the [[ImperialJapan Japanese Army,]] the Manchurian bandits, [[CoolGuns lots of guns,]] [[StuffBlowingUp explosions,]] and even a [[EpicFlail flail.]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lt5Z4IhAAMM 8 minutes of pure awesomeness,]] combined with some [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nKYNqfx2ahc epic music...]] and all done without [[ComputerGeneratedImages CGI.]] Arguably one of the best ever put to film.
* The fight on the train at the beginning of the film, again accompanied with some [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SD2a1mbq-cA great music.]]
** Chang-yi only has to stand on train tracks, smoking a cigarette, to be cool.
** Tae-goo's introduction: He's walking through the train, disguised as a waiter - we only see the back of him - breezing past a fight breaking out on a train and coolly ignoring his friend attempting to talk to him, then bursts into a Japanese military car, GunsAkimbo, shoots down several soldiers and holds up the rest. This is all before Chang-yi pulls the brakes, sending Tae-goo tumbling and ruining his imposing image, but it gives us a good impression that he is [[BewaretheSillyOnes far more dangerous than he appears]].
** Do-won's introduction: rescuing a little Chinese girl by expertly shooting her captor with a shotgun.
* The fight in the [[OutlawTown Ghost Market,]] complete with lots of improvised FastRoping by Do-won (The Good).
* The Korean ending has [[spoiler: Tae-goo surviving the shoot-out by sliding a thick sheet of metal under his vest]].
