Making a movie
Benny Lai (one of the members of the stunt group Jackie Chan), for his role as a deaf thug, took sign language lessons.
Jackie Chan received cuts to his head while jumping out the window from a moving bus, and he also received severe cuts to his arms, which were so deep that he could see his bone. Dodging a chair flying at him, he cut the back of his head. When escaping from a burning factory, he burned his face.
The final explosion of the factory, filled with explosives, at that time was the largest explosion in the history of Hong Kong cinema. The real building exploded. Especially for this, Jackie invited pyrotechnic specialists from America.
Maggie Chun was seriously injured during the filming of the finale and therefore could not finish shooting the picture. It is worth noting that after the episode with metal frames, the actress is no longer shot close-up throughout the rest of the picture. From now on, it is duplicated and the shooting is conducted either from a long distance or from the back. In the failed scenes shown at the end of the picture, you can see how Maggie Chun was injured.
