Hong Kong 97 - Robert Patrick (1994) - Lockhart Road, Wanchai

The street shootout with the hooded gangsters took place on Lockhart Road in Wanchai. The Gala Association sign in the background was on the front of the Wah Fat Mansion at 405-419 Lockhart Road but seems to have disappeared now. Luckily it was captured by Streetview before it was removed, otherwise identifying this spot would have been significantly harder. The Canal Road flyover (seen in the gloom of the background) helped a little bit in narrowing down the rough area.

Wandering down the street - as I did recently - reveals that the doorway used by Patrick to shield himself from being shot was the seemingly unchanged entrance to Caine Mansion at 384-388 Lockhart Road.

Look closely and you can see the sign inside the door is still there.
