Many world known Rotterdam, Netherlands architectural sights can be spotted in this movie. The Erasmusbrug (opened just two years before), Windowglide scene on the Willemswerf, Cube Houses, Willems bridge, the Koopgoot, Beurs Traverse, and Alexandrium Mall.
This movie featured an elaborate chase scene involving the then-popular Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IV and a pack of chasing BMW 3-series, in which Jackie, Yuki, and Christine (in the Evolution) attempt to escape from their captors. Several memorable stunts in the Evolution IV were featured, including a spin parking maneuver, market chase, and flipping the car onto its side and roof. In the making-of documentary, the team outlined the numerous Lancer Evolutions that were needed for the entire sequence, due to the harsh physical challenges presented by the stunts. The use of the Evolution IV was consistent with the on-going presence and sponsorship of Mitsubishi in Jackie Chan's movies of that era.
