As a way of circumventing the rigid Chinese censorship, the entire story is set in Malaysia, a country with a large ethnic Chinese minority and where Chinese is among the official languages, instead of in mainland China. If anyone wonders, certain major story elements (police corruption, drug dealing, generally portraying a city as a fairly dark place) would make it difficult if they were set in a mainland city. Perhaps for the same censorship reason, a flawless positive mainland cop character is put in the film and is played by a handsome actor, but the character is unfortunately paper thin and uninteresting. Setting the story in HK would pose different problems, such as having everyone speaking in Cantonese which would be unappealing in the mainland market.
