** The shop was actually a pawn shop; Jason typically got his bootlegs from there. Not inaccurate for many pawn shops.

* AllJustADream: From which Jason awakens ''right'' when he's about to be killed by the gang of evil {{Southies}} he pissed off earlier...
** Averted, it's not really a dream. He was projecting into another world. Or the past. Or something. As proven by the fact that the staff is gone.

* MightyWhitey: Largely averted. While Jason becomes [[InstantExpert very proficient in kung-fu in a seemingly short time]], and is able to beat up any number of [[{{Mooks}} Jade Soldiers]], he is significantly weaker than any of the other, more experienced named characters. Given that this is a wuxia film, this seems more like a way of elevating him to the rank of main character. Also, it should be noted that while the training montage is a short part of the movie, it is very intense (see Training from Hell below) and if you look carefully you can see Jason's hair get longer over the course of the movie indicating the passage of time.

Add in that he is being trained in the use of a staff in the kung fu manner, a skill that focuses highly on defense.
