Did You Know?

Footage was used from the film Shao Lin hu ho chen tien hsia (1977) (a different translation of the title is given in the opening credits). Most of the archive footage appears to be from The Savage Killers (1976). Actors were digitally inserted into scenes from the original film.See more »
Revealing mistakes: During the final fight when the song "Black Betty" is first played and the Chosen One starts dancing, there's a shot of Master Pain being played by Leo Lee, the actor who plays Young Master Pain instead of Fei Lung, the primary Master Pain actor.See more »

I liked it., 11 May 2003
Author: Aaron1375

I have watched my fair share of dubbed foreign movies in my time. I have also seen a lot of subtitled movies. I prefer subtitled because with dubbing I always felt that sometimes the people dubbing the movie were leaving stuff out or changing what the characters said just to fit their mouths. Here we have a guy who not only changes what they say to a ridiculous degree, he also added himself to the flick. This movie is actually an old martial arts movie. The dubbing has been changed though and some new scenes were added. I found this movie very hilarious. Though it is probably just me, as this one didn't score very well. I don't care though cause it just worked for me. I usually find with comedies though that I prefer the obscure stuff to the more mainstream hits that usually show all the highlights in the trailers. The weakest parts of this one are the scenes that were added to the movie while the best stuff is when the main character interjects himself into the movie or adds things to the original movie. Though none of it to me was particularly weak. You may want to read other reviews though as this is not a comedy for every one.
