    Trivia (4)

    • Trivia:¬†Eleven continues to be an important number. There were originally eleven Black Dragons, and the attack on Ian took place at 11 AM. Also, the address sent to Jake in the anonymous email was 111 George Street.

    • Trivia:¬†Ian can catch bullets with his hands. He is also a Black Dragon.

    • Goof: In the motorcycle chase scene with Sara and Moby, the plates in front of their handlebars on their motorcycles disappear during close-ups. The plates are either dirty or scratched in the beginning when Moby shoots at Jake and Sara; during the chase, the plates are clean.

    • Goof: Moby misspells Jake's last name when he sends an anonymous email to him. Moby sends the email to jakemcarty@nypd.com. Jake's email address should probably have been jakemccartey@nypd.com.

    Allusions (5)

    • William Blake Proverbs of Hell No bird soars too high, if she soars with her own wings. If the fool would persist in her folly she would become wise. The fox condemns the trap not himself. The tygers of wrath are wiser than the horses of instruction. The weak in courage is strong in cunning. A dead body, revenges not injuries. The roaring of lions, the howling of wolves, the raging of the stormy sea, and the destructive sword, are portions of eternity too great for the eye of man. If the lion was advised by the fox, he would be cunning.

    • The painting of the big dragon is the same used in both the book and the movie Red Dragon.

    • Black Dragon: Shadows of the valley - fear evil - Black Dragon, fearless. This is a paraphrase of the Bible verse Psalm 23:4, "Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me..."

    • Jake: (referring to the Black Dragons) They were given psychotropic drugs and made to watch films designed to induce obedience and aggression.
      Sara: What, like South Park reruns?

      South Park is a cartoon series created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, which uses satire and shock-value humor to mock such institutions as religion, family values, sexuality, and other social and political issues.

    • Black Dragon Audio-Visual Device: In every job that must be done there is an element of fun. This is a line from the song "A Spoonful of Sugar" from the musical Mary Poppins.
