Emperor Motion Picture TRIAD (JAT JIK) got first dibs on the Wise Guy remake trend, as William Chan Wai Ting, Derek Tsang Kwok Cheung, Edward Chui Woai Tung turned into a new generation of Wise Guys and added a bloody storm to the mob. Because the film had plenty of "show of strength" scene, over 100 extras were used earlier. In one scene over 100 people in black with wood in their hands stepped in the busy streets. Pedestrians misunderstood them for the real mob and called the police. Finally actual police patrol arrived. Chan Wai Ting praised how invested the production was in the film. He said, "the show of force scene had so many extras, the pressure during the shoot was enormous since one bad take would lead to another shoot with 100 people. Before hand we would rehearse a few times, hoping that during the official shoot we could get it in just one take."
Aside from alerting the authorities, even real Wise Guys thought another group was "taking over". However when they saw Chan Wai Ting they knew it was just a movie shoot. They even praised the actors as convincing. The shaken Chui Woai Tung said, "Seeing the real mobsters, I was afraid that they would drive us away. Thus during the shoot I was a little scared, luckily they only watched a little and left."
