Despite being billed as one of the stars, Jackie Chan's role in this movie is relatively minor until the final half hour. The major star of the movie is Chan's longtime associate and former member of the Peking Opera School, Sammo Kam-Bo Hung. This movie also features another of that troupe, Biao Yuen.
When the film was submitted for UK cinema a dialogue sequence (in which the men discuss raping the sleeping Barbara) was removed and an 11 sec cut made to shots of a car being broken into, and this print was then released on video. The same cuts (17 secs) were made to the 1999 widescreen video release and DVD releases are also similarly cut, though the dialogue has been replaced with less offensive material.
