I noticed that too! Forgot to bring it up. I almost thought this was supposed to be some veiled spin-off, like they were assigned to kill Tony Montana.
For example, I appreciated the influences from American crime films in setting as demonstrated by the opening sequence in the mansion that very much resembled the conclusion of Scarface. They even had a long shot with someone's body floating on a pool with an overhanging globe bearing the words "the world is mine."
