Aussie Action classic......fnerk!
21 December 2002 | by (Brisbane) – See all my reviews

"The Man from Hong Kong" is a lost classic of the "so bad it's good variety" which almost defies neat encapsualtion. Forget the at times seemingly ad-libbed script (the two Aussie coppers appear to be making it up as they go along), forget acting which only very occasionally rises to the modest standard of George Lazenby's gifts, forget even the sight of Aussie icon Rebecca Gilling showing off all her ample charms - the real fascination in this film if how every big budget action film cliche is thrown in here - but done on the lowest possible budget. The exploding Toyota Crown at the highlight of the pre-title sequence is a dead giveaway. So is the scene where the guy falls off the ladder. He just falls off the ladder..... thud! And the way the two guys at the beginning *run* to the top of Uluru and duke it out. Like you can do that....

A great film to watch with some rowdy friends.
