Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • The filmmakers intentionally used the traditional Chinese phrase "Gung Fu" in the movie. This created problems for Jackie Chan, who was used to saying the Anglisized "Kung Fu."
  • Just before Sparrow throws the dart at the Jade Warlord, she says "Come Drink with Me" which is the English title of Da zui xia (1966), which had its heroine Pei-pei Cheng play a character named Golden Sparrow.
  • Early in the film, the character Jason finds the DVD Guangdong shi hu xing yi wu xi (1980) in Hop's pawn shop. 'The Ten Tigers of Kwangtung' (English title) is often regarded by martial arts film experts as the ultimate Shaw Brothers martial arts film, because it features a star-studded cast of legendary martial arts actors including 'Ti Lung', 'Alexander Fu Sheng' and major and supporting actors from The Venom Mob (which includes all six principle actors from The Five Venoms). The film also featured a younger generation of Shaw Brothers actors and was meant as a way to "pass the torch" from then-veteran Shaw Brothers actors to the new generation of actors. Shaw Brothers films rarely featured so many star actors in one film, and 'The Ten Tigers of Kwangtung' was one of the few films to do so.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When the Jade Warlord slams the Silent Monk onto the Monkey King's altar at the end, it cuts to a different shot and the Silent Monk disappears, reappearing in the next shot.
