** This movie has a rather clearly evident Algorithm, starting with the Shanghai Police completely dominated by the Crocodile Gang, and then the Crocodile Gang getting massacred by the Axe Gang. The Axe Gang are countered by the Pig Sty Alley's three martial artists, who are then countered by the Axe Gang's hired {{Musical Assassin}}s, who are then countered by the Landlord and Landlady, who are in turn countered by the MadeOfIron and [[SuperSpeed superhumanly-fast]] Beast, who is in turn countered by the [[spoiler:HeelFaceTurn-ed [[UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist Unsympathetic Comedy]] VillainProtagonist]]. In a slightly jarring subversion, the Beast attempted to use a pile of basic Axe Gang members to soften up the hero before properly fighting him.
** Though, The Beast never told them to attack. Rather, he just enjoyed the show as those idiots lemming'ed themselves against [[spoiler:Sing's]] awesome might.

Added DiffLines:

** When Sing approaches to free The Beast from his cage, there is a multitude of frogs jumping in the corridor of his cell. This foreshadows the Beasts's use of the Toad style.

** 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]]

* AgonyOfTheFeet: The foot-stomping Sing delivers to some members of the Axe Gang, and later to the Beast, in the final battle. It's so strong, their feet get ''flattened''.

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 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.
