I, for one, did not laugh
25 October 2019 | by ckormos1See all my reviews

It opens with a helicopter view of the Central region of Hong Kong 1974. I love shots like that! On a dock a fight starts and two guys are taken prisoner. Cut to a bunch of old white guys in suits in a conference room discuss the plot. Cut again to another guy getting married. Instead, he is ordered to Bangkok. The tour of Bangkok is by taxi, boat, and then on foot.

At about the 24 minute mark Lo Lieh enters to spar. The part where he fights Robert Malcolm tried to be funny and could have been really funny but I didn't think it was funny at all. Comedy can be subjective so I try to avoid too much focus on that in my reviews. Plus, Chinese "nonsense movies" are an acquired taste. Personally, I didn't laugh at all watching the movie.

I just learned there was an entire series of "Three Supermen" movies that began in 1970. I looked them up and I will not be watching any of them. Not my "cuppa tea".

My copy is a digital file that plays on a HDTV as wide screen with English dialog. The video is excellent quality particularly when compared to the VHS multigeneration copies that are all that is left of many 1970s movies.

Guns were around during the time of the movie so magic bullet proof super hero costumes were invented so they could fight and not be shot dead. The fights never surpassed the basic choreography seen in a typical 1960s Hollywood western.

I rate it below average and do not recommend to anyone for any reason.
