Trivia: A Better Tomorrow
  • Mark Gor's theme, which plays near the end of the restaurant shootout, is "Birdy's Flight" from the Nicolas Cage Vietnam movie Birdy.
  • The English title "A Better Tomorrow" is the translated title of the song sung by the two school kids (in Mandarin) in the middle of the movie. It's a New Year's Eve song, usually sung by large groups.
  • Mark Gor is based on a character (the "wandering knight") from a previous John Woo kung fu movie, Last Hurrah For Chivalry.
  • Even though he is now universally known as an action hero, one of the main reasons John Woo wanted to cast Chow Yun Fat was because he didn't look like one.
