I am awarding Mighty Peking Man three stars, for general goofiness and a certain level of insane genius.

Very bad but very funny movie.

Before the big third act smash-o-rama, the audience is treated to some of the most unintentionally hilarious footage ever committed to film.

A fitfully amusing, very bad King Kong ripoff from Hong Kong with the purtiest jungle girl ever to don a leather bikini. Sorry Raquel Welch & Jennifer O'Dell, you've both been bumped.

Check out the ridiculous original poster, you'd think she was the giant threat running amok in downtown Hong Kong! While carrying a vampire-eyed leopard, no less. Ahh, without shlock cinema how would we determine when something was actually good?

Similar to the King Kong tale in that a big monkey ravages a city, but this time its Hong Kong being destroyed when they try to restrain him for their entertainment. Once again there is only one girl who can calm him, but its his long-time jungle companion and orphaned White girl whose parent's plane crashed years before. Some elements are more similar to Mighty Joe Young or Sheena, Queen of the Jungle. Some cool miniatures getting smashed if you're into that, but otherwise mostly forgettable. Oh, except the side-boob with nip in a PG-rated film!
