Punch sounds are heard when no punches were laid.
This is in the American version of the movie. In the original all sounds are fine.
The goof is created by bad dubbing/ sound editing making the movie understandable for that country. See more »

How does a guy from Wales go to Indonesia, hook up with Indonesia's top- notch martial arts experts, and make one of Asia's greatest action movies of all time for a mere $1.1 million? I don't know, but all the reviews here are true, this is 100 minutes of non-stop action and violence with spectacular fight scenes and impressive fight choreography and direction.
