The English subtitles explain the first thing he said was to communicate through some kind of brain to brain system they have. The second thing he said was basically the 3 killers were not skilled enough to kill an expert like him , they were over matched by his skill. As to rather his spoken Japanese words were the same as the sub titles , my Japanese skill is to low to tell. Maybe someone else can tell if the sub titles match what he really said.

I can just barely make out the words "dennou tsuushin" (electric-brain communication), "kitsune" (fox) and "usagi" (rabbit), so yes, the subtitles appear to be accurate.

公安9課、電脳通信は危険だ。
Kōan kyū ka, dennō-tsūshin* wa kiken da.
Public Security Section 9, Mind-Comms is dangerous (= Do not use it/Be careful when using it).
subtitle: All agents switch to Mind-Comms now!
*dennō-tsūshin: mind-to-mind communication through the global electronic internet

キツネを殺すのに、ウサギをよこすな。
Kitune wo korosu no ni, usagi wo yokosu na.
Don't send a rabbit to kill a fox.


Thus, the second subtitle is accurate, but the first one is not.

I watched it the other day and thought that was weird. Oh well hollywood handles language and culture about as deftly as a 40-year old virgin handles their first boob: like a bag of... sand.
