Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })1930s 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 unexpectedly skilled fighters: Coolie, Tailor and You-Tiao (fried dough sticks) baker. What results is an Escalating War between the Axe Gang and the (surprisingly strong) residents of the impoverished Pig Sty Alley.Directed, led and written by famous Hong Kong comedian Stephen Chow, 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 Roger Ebert, as "like Jackie Chan and Buster Keaton meet Quentin Tarantino and Bugs Bunny". But really, it has to be seen to be believed.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Compare Shaolin Soccer and God of Cookery, from the same creator.A sequel was set to release 2012, but apparently, that didn't happen. Stephen Chow has stated that he's been putting it on hold for other projects.

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

Absurdly Sharp Blade: The axes used by the Axe Gang are sharp enough to cut clean through a man's leg when thrown. The harpists' invoked blades as well.
