Bey Logan has been the foremost expert of Hong Kong cinema, providing some of the best commentary tracks on dvds and blu-rays of all kind of Hong Kong film and his commentary here is excellent. He gives almost anyone in the film a moment by talking about their history. Here he also dives into King Kong and the rip offs. This is a must listen for any fan of the film.
The Mighty Peking Man comes to us in a combo (Blu-ray + DVD) pack.
|Yes, that is a stuffed monkey on a tiny boat|
The Mighty Peking Man is a helluva good time. The film is funny and exciting. The effects are all over the place, but that adds to the film's charm. 88 Films have given us a great blu-ray. The picture quality is fantastic and the sound is nice. The special features may appear to be lacking, but the commentary with Bey Logan is worth the listen. I hope that 88 Films keeps this trend up with future releases.
