** The Axe Gang's introduction is styled suspiciously similarly to ''TheBluesBrothers'' (complete with a knockoff of the famous Peter Gunn theme music).

* UpToEleven: The Landlady's [[MakesMeWannaShout Lion's Roar]], already able to obliterate the blind harpists, later gets augmented with a funeral bell that she uses ''like a megaphone''. Even the Beast is impressed by the move. [[spoiler:Too bad it doesn't stop him.]]

Added DiffLines:

* AngerBornOfWorry: It's heavily implied that the real reason the Landlady flipped out on the Three Masters and threw them out wasn't about their back rent, but because she was worried that their fight against the Axe Gang was going to get them killed. [[spoiler: As they finally lay dying she drops her callous act, and she and her husband are revealed to be more distraught and angry than anyone.]]

1940s UsefulNotes/{{Shanghai}} is in the grip of various gangs struggling for power, with the Axe Gang being foremost. Main character Sing is an ineffectual small-time crook trying to join the Axe Gang. In doing so, he and buddy Bone attempt to command respect from the Pig Sty Alley. Their bumbling attracts the real gang, who are repelled by the martially-skilled Coolie, Tailor and You-Tiao (fried dough sticks) baker. What results is an EscalatingWar between the Axe Gang and the ([[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass unusually strong]]) residents of the impoverished Pig Sty Alley.

Directed, led and written by famous Hong Kong comedian Creator/StephenChow, it is a comedic parody of and homage to Chinese {{Wuxia}} films and American musicals from the 50's, best summarised, in the words of Creator/RogerEbert, as "like Creator/JackieChan and Creator/BusterKeaton [[XMeetsY meet]] Creator/QuentinTarantino and WesternAnimation/BugsBunny". But really, it has to be seen to be believed.

* {{Acrofatic}}: The Landlady, The Tailor, and The Beast are all middle aged and plus sized, but they're all formidable kung fu masters.



* BattleCouple: The Landlord and The Landlady.



* BookEnds: The first and last kung fu fight took place in Pig Sty Alley.



* DiedStandingUp: [[spoiler:Brother Sum.]]



* EarnYourHappyEnding: Sing and his friend [[spoiler:give up on trying to be criminals, finally got themselves out of poverty, and open up a candy shop. Sing also reunites with the mute ice cream lady from his childhood.]]



* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Brother Sum's very introduction has him axing the Crocodile gang leader to death and shooting his wife after pretending to spare her.



* FlowerPotDrop: Parodied. The character doesn't get up after a pot is dropped on him from a top level apartment, and still played for laughs. When bad stuff starts happening, the recipient gathers the scattered dust around his head to hide.

** The blind musical assassins are a shout-out to a real assassination attempt that was made upon QinShiHuangdi, when his blind musician tried to smash his head in with a weighted lute. [[note]]It didn't work.[[/note]]
