Who gave you the courage to be killed here?
Asian Hawk: I obey my god's every command. He looks after all my needs. I always say yes to him. Never no.

Jackie's hair grows between shots in the beginning between stealing the sword and sliding down the hill. This was due to an accident he suffered while filming early scenes for the film, which left him with a small hole in one side of his head. His hair has remained reasonably long in most of his subsequent films.
During the end credits, there is a showcase of outtakes from the film, including the famous stunt during which Jackie Chan nearly got killed.
The export version of this film runs approx. 10 minutes shorter (cut were story and comedy scenes, e.g. the band scene and the dream sequence). In addition, the song at the end is sung in English instead of Cantonese.
