The Super Inframan (Shan Hua, 1975)

HONG KONG’S ORIGINAL MONSTER MASH!

When the sinister Princess Elzebub and her demonic minions ascend from the centre of the Earth to conquer Hong Kong and then the rest of the world, only Professor Liu Ying-de and the Science Headquarters stand in their way. Danny Lee stars as a young man transformed into Inframan, the sensational superhero made beyond bionics! With solar rays and thunderbolt fists, he sets out to vanquish humankind’s enemies forever in this fantastical story of rubber-suited villainy and plastic armor heroism.

Featuring not just one but two Bruceploitation stars (Danny Lee and Bruce Le), the mind-boggling fight choreography of Lan-Shan Ho (The Way of the Dragon), and costumes and creature designs by Ekisu Productions (Kamen Rider), The Super Inframan is a singular tokusatsu action experience from the legendary Shaw Brothers Studio.

“This movie f*****g kicks ass!” – Quentin Tarantino

Fast! Fierce! Fantastic! Nothing can stop … The Man From Hong Kong.  From maverick action film director Brian Trenchard-Smith comes this spy-flick spoof starring kung fu extraordinaire Jimmy Wang Yu!  Super cop Fang Sing Leng is an ass-kicking, bed-hopping Hong Kong James Bond with an axe to grind.  He arrives in Sydney with a mission: To bring down a mob boss (George Lazenby), woo some ladies and show the Aussies how they make a man in Hong Kong!  No wonder it smashed box office records around the globe!  Bursting with foot-to-the-floor, hi-octane car carnage and equally spectacular martial arts mayhem, The Man From Hong Kong (a.k.a The Dragon Files) is a pure, unadulterated 1970s thrill-ride from the first kick to the last crash.  This Aussie classic is finally available in North America, and not a moment too soon!
