Takeshi Kitano's eye patch was real; before filming, he made a serious accident with his motorcycle and resulted an injury at his eye.
Japanese Laserdisc contains the 119 min. Director's Cut of the movie, approx. 10 Minutes longer than the international version. Additional scenes show more character development as well as some extra shots of violent scenes. Somehow interesting, this version omits the ending of the movie, when the killer and the last one left of the "Gonin" die in their seats at the bus while the bus driver and the small group of young women enters the bus and they all drive away with the two unrecognized dead men. This cut seems to be made because the full length ending wouldn't have fit on the second side of this laserdisc.
