HKCinemagic : How did you work out action scenes with choreographer Chin Kar Lok?
Derek Yee : I chose him because he belongs to the younger generation. One consideration was that because it's a movie very close to real life, you don't really need somebody like Yuen Woo Pingor Jackie Chan, who are really like martial art masters. Their training was based on the Peking opera and a lot of fancy stuffs. That is not something that fitted well with my movie.

HKCinemagic : So it was your main instruction to Chin Ka-Lok, to do something as realistic as possible ?
Derek Yee : I ask Chin Kar Lok to come up with action design for the ending part and so forth.

But I think that the most difficult parts would be when we have to shoot in public areas, the hunting, when the police was looking for Daniel and Cecilia. There were movie extras but also real people, bystanders, it was very difficult to monitor all of them.
