The Man from Hong Kong (1975) — Fast! Fierce! Fantastic! Nothing can stop . . . . The Man from Hong Kong. Inspector Fang Sing Leng (Jimmy Wang Yu) travels to Australia to extradite a drug dealer (Sammo Hung). When the hood is assassinated on his way to court, everyone suspects Jack Wilton (George Lazenby), a crime lord who the local police haven't been able to pick up. I wonder if Fang will get him? This Aussie-Golden Harvest co-production was an attempt to launch HK superstar Jimmy Wang Yu on a global scale post-Bruce Lee. The film is very effective, thanks mostly to director Brian Trenchard-Smith's Bond-esquire style that capitalizes on lavish locations and over-the-top stunt work. Wang Yu isn't the smoothest fighter, but he gets the job done with fights every 15 minutes or so. The highlight is a throw down inside a kitchen against stunt man Grant (STUNT ROCK) Page. Even more surprising is seeing Lazenby doing a lot of his own stunts including a fantastic fire gag. The oddest bits of the film have women falling for Wang Yu the second they see him. Ah, the power of cinema!
