The audience later learns that Griffith is Juntao. Inspector Lee mentions to Carter that he saw Juntao and that he killed his (Inspector Lee's) partner.

Outtakes from the film play during the end credits.
The pool hall sequence was also edited, where Carter uses the line "What's up, my nigga." When he passes another bar patron, the line was altered where "What's up Negro" was substituted. The consequent scenes where Jackie Chan uses the "N" word were unedited.
