A humble businessman with a buried past seeks justice when his daughter is killed in an act of terrorism. A cat-and-mouse conflict ensues with a government official, whose past may hold clues to the killers' identities.
Despite the change from the novel's original title of "The Chinaman", Quan is still referred to as such 6 times in the film.
Quan Ngoc Minh:
Politicians and terrorists, they are just 2 ends of the same snake.
Quan Ngoc Minh: What's the difference?
Liam Hennessy: There is a difference.
Liam Hennessy: One end bites and the other doesn't.
Except for a few, including Quan's Ford Mondeo and Toyota Hiace, the rest of the vehicles are depicted using an incorrect registration format. They use the "suffix" format (AAA 123A), which was superseded in 1983. Although it is permissible to register a vehicle with a number first issued before the car was made, it is highly unlikely that so many cars would have that style of 'cherished' plates and some include the letter Z that was not used.
The title is shown as a series of Asian-language characters before it changes into its English title.
