The Man with the God Tongue - In-film references - Netflix
The scenes in the Buddhist monastery reference 18 Bronzemen, as the monks call themselves the “18 Bronzemen”. “Sorrowful Rice” (黯然銷魂飯) is a reference to Yang Guo's Melancholic Palms (黯然銷魂掌) technique. The final battle between Chow and Bull Tong itself contains a couple of tongue-in-cheek references to Jin Yong (Louis Cha)'s The Heaven Sword and Dragon Saber and The Legend of the Condor Heroes in the original Cantonese dialogue, which is however obscured in the English subtitles.
