Critic Reviews for Infra-Man (Zhong guo chao ren)

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1)

  • The movie's totally, almost joyfully absurd... It's a classy, slick production by the Shaw Brothers, the Hong Kong kung fu kings. When they stop making movies like Infra-Man, a little light will go out of the world.

  • If you see the film cold without reading the booklet, be prepared for one of the wackiest, spectacularly silly and cheerfully tongue-in-cheek films to come out of the Shaw Brothers studio.

  • Florid Shaw Bros. mélange

  • Finely aged and highly entertaining Hong Kong cheese.

    This movie is frantic non-stop martial arts superhero action against rubber suited monsters sent out by a dominatrix evil Princess Dragon Mom. It's great fun. I liked the frantic editing, sped up film, and "prang" sound effect whenever Infra-Man would jump. I couldn't stop laughing. The Power Rangers must've seen this and got a big idea.

    What a great film. i owned the VHS of this for ages, afraid to let it go, and now I have a widescreen, subtitled DVD. It will take some getting used to. Like Power Rangers, if it was made for me specifically. An impossible movie to hate if you have just an inkling of a soul.

    I have a test I like to do. I put in Infra-Man with somebody who hasn't seen it, and I say "Tell me when this film hits 5 stars for you". Invariably, it happens within the first 30 minutes.
