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.

Audience Reviews for Xing xing wang (The Mighty Peking Man) (Colossus of Congo) (Goliathon)


King Kong knock off crossbred with a bit of Tarzan/Sheena and segueing into almost Godzilla level destruction. The movie adds so many earnest but ridiculous elements that it becomes an enjoyable B movie gem. Evelyne Kraft frolicking with a leopard was truly unexpected and original.

68% You can take a girl out of the jungle, but you can't take the jungle out of the girl. Horrible in every aspect, but it's fun.If you're into silly jungle adventures or Godzilla, you should like this one.

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?
