A surprise a minute laugh-fest...., 13 January 2009
Author: merklekranz from United States

Please do not be confused by any futile attempts by the "Shaw Brothers" to film a serious King Kong-Sheena hybrid. "Mighty Peking Man" is a mind bending movie experience, that must be seen to be believed. The most fun can be had if you simply concentrate on the utter magnificence of the movie's ineptitude. Some highlights would be finding your girl in bed with your brother, and immediately running off to the jungle on a wild ape hunt. Rocks that change size as they are thrown. Avoiding an elephant stampede by jumping into quicksand. Not shooting a tiger who is tearing off a guy's leg, but then executing the man after the attack. Finding plenty of eye shadow and makeup while living in the jungle, even though this jungle beauty can only grunt. Having a sexy blonde clad in animal skins immediately get a ride from total strangers in downtown Hong Kong "Take me to Peking Man". People thrown off of a 40 story building by a gorilla, winding up on the pavement below, looking no worse than if they had fallen out of bed. It just goes on and on. - MERK
