Continuity mistake: After the "Single Shot" fight sequence, watch closely as the camera cuts and Joe is stabbed in the back. The background (and the beaten-up henchmen strewn about on the floor) completely changes between shots. A section of the fight was cut out by the studio for pacing reasons, causing the mistake.

Trivia: The passing reference to "The Count of Monte Cristo" made right before Joe kills a guard at the "prison" is a small nod to the original Korean version of the film. "The Count of Monte Cristo" is referenced and paid homage to several times during the original film.

Trivia: At the beginning of the film, we see Joe buying a "rubber ducky" for his daughter from a female street vendor. The street vendor is wearing a set of "Angel Wings" on her back. This is a reference to the original Korean film, in which the lead character had bought his daughter a similar set of "Angel Wings" to wear.
