PG-13 | | Action, Comedy, Crime
A loyal and dedicated Hong Kong Inspector teams up with a reckless and loudmouthed L.A.P.D. detective to rescue the Chinese Consul's kidnapped daughter, while trying to arrest a dangerous crime lord along the way.
Tzi Ma, who plays Consul Han, and Byron Mann, who plays Fong, are also featured together in the AMC original series Hell on Wheels (2011-2016).
I'm gonna kick your ass and then I'll take your ass to jail.
In the event that the daughter of a Chinese diplomat was abducted on U.S. soil, the State Department (particularly the Diplomatic Security Service) would have full priority over the matter and not the F.B.I. as depicted in this movie.
Outtakes from the film play during the end credits.
When aired on TV, right after Lee and Carter fell through the bridge and were nearly run over, Carters says "I think I broke my shin", the line was removed, because it sounded too much like: "I think my broke my shit!" When Sang tries to abduct Soo Yung, the part where she whacks him in the face with her necklace, cutting the corner of his eye, was cut so the scar below his right eye remains a mystery; When Clive aims a gun at Carter's head and says "I'm gonna blow his freakin' head all over the parking lot, asshole", the line was changed to: "I'm gonna splatter his brains all over the parking lot..."; The word 'ass' is replaced by 'butt' and 'rear' throughout the movie; When a character says 'God damn' or 'God dammit', the 'God' was removed; At the bar, Carter's greeting of 'What's up, my nigga?' was changed to 'What's up, Negro?", it's even changed to that when Lee accidentally says it to the bartender; When Carter takes a joint from a man in the bar and breathes it in, the scene of him having a small trip was deleted; the part where Lee stops Johnson and says "he's just joking" was altered to delete the scene of him noticing his hands are on Johnson's breasts; When Carter shoots the C4 in the back of Clive's car and it explodes, the explosion was shortened; The outtakes were also altered to eliminate profanity.
