THE MAN FROM HONG KONG
(1975) When Australian police undercover a massive drug smuggling ring
with connections to Hong Kong, they fly in master crime fighter Jimmy
Wang Yu (MASTER OF THE FLYING GUILLOTINE) to take care of business.
Between white-knuckle car chases, brutal kung fu fights, and
hair-raising stunts, Jimmy also finds time to seduce every woman in
sight. Former James Bond actor George Lazenby plays the villain, and
he's a slimy mustachioed expert of white boy martial arts. This movie is
filled with non-stop excitement, beautiful hang-gliding women, and
insane stunt work (by stunt coordinators Sammo Hung and Aussie wild man
Grant Page, the man behind MAD MAX). Not to be missed in this rare
Brian Trenchard-Smith is a director most
famous for his 70's and 80's Australian action films, including STUNT
ROCK, BMX BANDITS, DEAD END DRIVE-IN and THE MAN FROM HONG KONG. He's
known for making large-scale movies on small-scale budgets, and Quentin
Tarantino lists him as one of his favorite directors of all time.
