The Good, the Bad and the Bomb Experts:

• It is quite a relief that the scenes that appear in the movie trailer occurs in the early part of the film, as it makes the later part of the film more surprising and unpredictable .

• There are parts in the movie that are quite shocking at many points, and that makes the story very amusing and intense.

• Song Jia's presentation of her character is so refreshing as she plays a very ordinary and plain school teacher which is quite rare for a female lead to not stand out and look pretty, even though in real-life, the actress is very beautiful.

• Plot wise, the movie doesn't really make much sense, but it is loud and fun, and it is the kind of movie which doesn't have to make much sense as long as the ride is enjoyable, much like many of Michael Bay's movies.

Trivia:

• The film was initially set to star Nicholas Tse, Nick Cheung and Julian Cheung, with Tse portraying the main villain.
