A police detective cracks down on organized crime in Chinatown after the murders of Triad and Mafia leaders.
The ending sees a real train hitting and pushing a real car, but "the Mercedes wouldn't even get a dent in it! I thought it was going to crush it and it didn't. We ended up chaining the Mercedes to the ties and it still wouldn't dent it. Finally I had twenty stuntmen with sledgehammers beating it up. I was so impressed I bought one as soon as I got home."
Captain McKenna, any leads in the murder of Jackie Wong?
William McKenna: Nothing at this time.
Tracy Tzu: Do you think this killing means there's some kind of war going on in the Chinatown Tongs?
William McKenna: No, I don't. This is basically a situation where the youth gangs are lashing out...
After Connie is killed in the bathroom and Kearney and Lou enter Stanley's house to serve him papers, we see the outline of Connie's body with fresh blood on the bathroom floor. Blood turns a darker/brownish color after it is exposed to air, especially the time it took after Connie's murder and the beginning of this scene.
The end credits roll over a squeezed image of the Chinese woman restaurant-singer crooning a Chinese easy-listening ditty.
