MENG LONG ZHENG DONG - Yung-Yu Chen - "Bruce Lee Against Supermen" (1975)

When we first starting thinking about what to do on Wedensday, it was like WTF?!, and it was a joke, but now it's gotten serious, and tonight's feature is seriously a WTF?! flick entitled "Bruce Lee Against Supermen," and if you want to talk about a movie that has it all, then this is your movie, because it has absolutely everything, and the only thing original about any of it, is the way it's all thrown together without regard for anything! Let me show you what I'm talkin' about cause it's a hoot!!

The prefect movie made in Hong Kong has got to have all the essential elements, starting with best buddies during happier times!!

A perverted twit spying on a naked bathing beauty!

The kidnapping of the Doctor scientist and his daughter by a gang of nefarious bad guys!!!

Okay, Sure, WTF?!

Yi Tao Chang or as he is better known, Bruce Lai, is probably one of the few guys in the world that can look cool in what appears to be a madras jacket! He made 4 of these movies in 1979 alone, and has been in titles like "The Clones Of Bruce Lee," "The Inheritor Of Kung Fu," and "Dragon On Fire."

The Hong Kong version of the vision of the future!!

The ultimate international headquarters of the bad guys, no expenses spared!!

Cross-cultural diversity that includes Chinese Arabs!

Crossing diagonals like there's no tomorrow without any regard for taste!


The patented WARP-O-VISION!!!

Not a mere Rolex watch, No, not these guys, they've got a Rolex wall clock!!! Damn!!

A guy with a slingshot!!

A gang of Monkey-Boys!!!

Bruce as Farmer John, the body building rickshaw driver, and part-time exotic dancer!

Bruce Lai channeling Bruce Lee channeling Elvis!!!

A killer knockout punch is provided in the form of music from the likes of Yung-Yu Chen, who composed an average of 14 soundtracks a year for 12 years running from 1970 to 1982! Good titles too, like "The Oily Maniac," "The Mighty Peking Man," "Dirty Kung Fu," and "Mantis Fists And Tiger Claws Of Shaolin."

Finally Superman shows up, and he might not be much to look at, but he's a real devious sumbitch, and it's not good enough to just be Superman, he also has to cheat!!!

Green Hornet is in the mix too, which kind of ties things together cohesively, and makes the whole concept of this film easier to follow. Kato was Green Hornet's sidekick, and on the TV series, Kato was played by the real Bruce Lee! See, it all makes sense now!!

After cutting Bruce up with his cheap gauntlet spiked armbands, Superman is forced into the final ultimate tapout after Bruce applies a vicious figure 4 leglock, and believe or don't, I left out a whole bunch of stuff!!! Thanx to PGB for the wild ride!!
