The Man from Hong Kong (The Dragon Flies) (1975)
The Far East and the Land Down Under are about to have a head-on collision in this action drama. Fang (Jimmy Wang Yu) is an undercover detective from Hong Kong sent to Australia to crack open the operation of a Sydney mob boss named Wilton (George Lazenby). Fang puts his skills as a hang glider pilot and martial arts master to work as he sets up Wilton for a literally explosive finale. Samo Hung (aka Kim Po Hung), later to become a major martial arts star in his own right, appears in a supporting role and has an impressive battle with an Australian cop. The film also features the song "Sky High" by Jigsaw, which would go on to become a Top 40 hit. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi … More

Audience Reviews for The Man from Hong Kong (The Dragon Flies)
A great excuse for great stunts and crazy action.
I mean the people and vehicles involved in this film are superhuman in durability and stamina that ends up making for some incredible sequences.
Of course the scenes in-between the action are very good, but their frequent laughability, and oh did I mention the action, make up for it.
Plus: where else are you going to see the One-Armed Swordsman go after James Bond, with the help and hindering of the Toecutter and Fifi from Mad Max.
