The Super Inframan

Directed by
Shan Hua

The Shaw Brothers’ answer to popular Japanese henshin hero films remains a silly, endlessly enjoyable slice of 70s HK pop culture.

“The movie’s totally, almost joyfully absurd… It’s a classy, slick production by the Shaw Brothers, the Hong Kong kung fu kings. When they stop making movies like [Super] Infra-Man, a little light will go out of the world.” – Roger Ebert

The ten million year-old Princess Dragon Mom (Terry Liu) attempts to conquer the earth with her legion of mutant monsters. In response, Professor Chang (Wang Hsieh) creates Inframan, turning a young volunteer into a bionic superhero to save the world. However, the Princess kidnaps Chang’s daughter. Can Inframan save her and the planet before it’s too late?
