Richie Jen (Yam Yin Chai), Alex Fong Chung Shun and Simon Yam Tat Wa worked for the crime action film BIN YUEN HUNG JEH (EDGE WALKER). The new film took place in the 1990s, as the police went undercover in the mob to investigate. In it would be many car chases, gun fights and close combat scenes. For realism, the trio personally performed many of the stunts. Earlier Yam Yin Chai and Fong Chung Shun shot a car chase scene at Central. In it two cars crashed and flipped on their sides. Yam Yin Chai revealed that inside the car he was dizzy from all the spinning!
Yam Yin Chai and Fong Chung Shun earlier worked on the film BIN YUEN HUNG JEH. The team shot at Central and shut down the road across from City Hall for a car chase scene and attracted several dozen onlookers. For safety, the production team arranged for the St. John's ambulance association members to be on the set. In case of any accident they would be able to respond immediately. Fortunately the shoot went without any incident.
Siu Chai and Fong Chung Shun shot the scene in the heat, before taking their marks they hid under the umbrella to keep cool. When no one was around they would pull down their masks to catch their breath. When people gathered they would put them back on. After the car chase they shot the fight scene inside the car. In handcuffs, Siu Chai and Fong Chung Shun struggled for a gun inside. Many crew members outside the camera teamed up to push the car and spin it many times. Siu Chai looked very intense, with the heat he was red all over.
The team worked until dusk. Siu Chai said that he was dizzy from all the spinning in the car. After changing he said that this film has been the most difficult to shoot. "Because of numerous stunts each actor put in a lot of effort. Although the shoots have been tough, they have been a lot of fun! In one scene when I was brought to the court, people came after and we struggled. There were some minor injuries. During the car chase, Chu Jai (Kevin Chu Kam Yin)'s airbag deployed in the car and hit him in the ear. After that he was a little dizzy. I was in the other side of the car so I was fine."
Siu Chai revealed that the gun fight scenes have not been too intense, but the so-called "thug fights" were numerous. He admired co-star Yam Tat Wa for personally performing them without any complaint. He also praised Danny Chan Kwok Kwan as the best fighter, agile and looking great in the stunts. Siu Chai before work already stretched to warm up, but he still was bruised all over from the fighting. With all the back and soreness, he would have acupuncture, Gua Sha, massage and other treatments to ease the pain.
