aka The Return of the Bionic Boy
28 December 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This film is known under several titles. This is pure trash cinema! The boy has special powers, and when he uses them, a prolonged 'waah-waaah-waaaah' sound accompanies him, and every bionic act is done in super slow motion (as in the scene where he throws a man into a basketball hoop, and the dock side scene, when he bends a bumper around a baddie). His sister is a bit of a babe too. Plot-wise, i dont remember, but the 'finale' has to be seen. It inolves a giant fire breathing mecha-godzilla, but on a budget. One of them (i think his sister..) is hit by a boulder, which is obviously made of paper in the climatic scenes. I laughed at how bad it was, yet sat through it all. This really is a gem, and any fan of exploitation or asian trash cinema must see this.

The film was released in various formats in the UK. The version reviewed was available on Cable 2 video.
