During the carnival scene where Fu knocks the gun out of his friend's hand, it switches from being a 1911 clone to a Beretta. When Ngok Lo picks it up, it switches back to being a 1911, but when he drops the gun it becomes a Beretta again.
The US version, that is released by Columbia/TriStar (under the name "Contract Killer"), is cut by about 6 mins. The original version of the film, which it's original English title was "Hitman," runs at about 104 mins. The US version runs at 98 mins. Also, the original music has been removed and replaced with a soundtrack containing mostly rap and the English dub that is on Columbia/TriStar's version dumbs down the original version's dialog considerably.
