Visible crew/equipment: In the shoot 'em up scene at the hangar near the beginning of the film, right after Tito and Wanda take down Pollux, when Troy shoots an agent in the stomach and the agent flies back - you can see at least two cable wires pulling him backwards. You can first notice the 2 wires when the agent is running in slow motion right before he shoots him. (00:14:15)

Castor Troy: Lies, deceit, mixed messages... This is turning into a real marriage.

Trivia: John Woo fought to keep the slash in the title, so moviegoers wouldn't think it was a film about hockey.

Question: How could they possibly remove Archer's bullet scar? If they could, wouldn't that just create a bigger scar?

Chosen answer: Surgical scar removal is a real thing, usually involving skin grafts or lasers. Keloid scarring is a result of the body aggressively attempting to heal/repair itself after trauma or injury (in this case, the gunshot). With proper surgical techniques, the body isn't traumatized to the point that deep scarring occurs. Of course, just like with the face surgery, the movie exaggerates the results of the scar removal.
