Mighty Peking Man (English version)
Gala Avary Selects • Action, Adventure
1977 • Hong Kong • Directed by Meng-Hua Ho
When Hollywood announced a big-budget remake of King Kong, Shaw Brothers followed suit with perhaps the most unhinged giant monster movie ever made: Mighty Peking Man. Fresh off directing the smash hit Black Magic horror series for Shaw, director Ho Meng-hua’s crazy kaiju knock-off also features unforgettable special effects from the Japanese talents behind the effects for the Gamera, Daimajin and Yokai Monsters films.
An explorer named Chen Zhengfeng (Danny Lee, star of Shaw’s superhero opus Super Inframan) joins an expedition to India to capture the legendary Mighty Peking Man, a huge Himayalan creature whose very presence causes destruction. The expedition quickly turns sour and Chen is left alone in the heart of the jungle, only to come face-to-face with the beast and Ah-wei, the beautiful human woman that loves him. This is the English-dubbed version.
