About the Film:
Part of 邵氏兄弟 Shaw Brothers Retrospective
Directed by Hua Shan. 1975. Hong Kong. 84 min. Cantonese with English subtitles.
Imagine pint-sized Godzillas fighting comic book superheroes, have Shaw Brothers add in some kung fu choreography, and then you have Super Inframan, one of the most far-out, fantastical films ever made. Starring the up-and-coming Danny Lee (who achieved international superstardom in John Woo's The Killer), the film pits Lee as the thunderbolt-fisted Inframan battling maniacal monsters from the Earth's center, lead by the evil Demon Princess (Terry Liu). Adding to the psychosis is the fast-paced fights choreographed by the acclaimed action director Tang Chia and beautiful camera work by He Lan-shan (Bruce Lee's cinematographer in The Way Of The Dragon).
