Trivia

*Although rumoured to have been one of the many films financed by the mafia for recruiting new members, this film contained themes such as the horror of death, and respect for tradition and elders.
*Within this film, as with many other John Woo films, there is a scene containing a curtain which has ignited from being shot.
*During the conclusion of the film a character refers to "A Better Tomorrow", a previous John Woo film, by placing handguns in flower pots and behind vases. Strangely most of these guns did not contain any bullets when fired.
