Producer Paco Wong, director Soi Cheang Po Shui and action director Nick Li Chung Chi all attended in support. Artists Nicky Wu (Ng Kei Lung), Ye Zuxin and Lu Chen even appeared to watch Tony Jaa's real kung fu.
The one take, 200 people riot scene was shot in public for the first time. Wu Jing, Tony Jaa and Zhang Jin's performance left the audience screaming. Wu Jing was even moved to tears. Did his heart ache over his scene being cut? He said, "This scene only showed this time, but behind it we rehearsed ten or twenty times. Each time death brushed us by." Remembering the hardship he asked viewers to support the film more. Tony Jaa even demonstrated his real kung fu. He kicked in the air and "shared" a bucket of pop corn that was four meters in the air with everyone.
Yam Tat Wa actually "copped a feel" of Goo Jai's chest, which he joked was required by the story. Speaking of his look in the film becoming a hot topic, Goo Jai said, "The director hoped that my costume would be completely different this time. The performance was already very hard. I never imagined that he would even cover my face with a wig and glasses. I could only kill with my eyes."
