British martial arts actor Mark Houghton spends much of the movie carrying a sword for his Japanese boss played by 'Michiko Nichiwaki', the original plan was for her to fight with the Tai Chi sword during the finale and while thats the shape of sword that Houghton carries for most of the film, during the finale when he draws the sword, it has now changed to a Chinese broadsword.
At the beginning of the climactic fight in the warehouse, Miego (Michiko Nishiwaki) is wearing flat shoes, but when she's hogtied by Yukari at the end of the fight, she's wearing red heels.
The UK VHS release from 1997 lost various shots of illegal activities (details of how to break into cars, plus a close-up of a house door being opened with a lock-picking kit -- fear of people copying these acts lead to their exclusion), a banned weapon (the balisong knife) and real cruelty to chickens. The DVD release of 2005 had all cuts waived except the cruelty to chickens, which is a compulsory cut to comply with the UK's Cinematograph Films (Animals) Act 1937.
