Trivia: Hard Boiled Movie

  • Actor Allusion: Philip Chan, who played Superintendant Pang, was a CID cop in the '70s and for a while was the head of one of the first undercover units of the Hong Kong Police.
  • Trash the Set: The teahouse that served as the setpiece for the first big shootout of the film had been slated for demolition, and John Woo got permission to use the teahouse for the shootout in question.
