Arthur Watson: I mean er... what?
Cmdr. Hammerstock-Smythe: Anymore nonsense like that and you will be taken of the case and Inspector Yang will be put in charge of it.

When Eddie and Jai are trapped in the shipping container under water, Jai tells Eddie that he "is not afraid". This line is clearly dubbed, and from the movement of his mouth Jai appears to be saying "wu boo pah" ("I'm not afraid") in Mandarin.
Outtakes from the film are shown during the closing credits, ending with a shot of Eddie and Nicole flying through the air away from the castle.
