Mighty Peking Man (1977)

3 Stars (out of 4)

Ape in the Bottom of the Barrel

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

This 1977 Hong Kong monster movie is the latest from Quentin Tarantino's Rolling Thunder releasing company. A young Danny Lee (The Killer) plays an explorer who searches for the giant Peking Man. He finds both the monster and a blonde jungle babe (Evelyne Kraft) who has raised herself after her plane crashed in the jungle as a little girl. Lee cleverly decides to bring both beast and babe to the big city, where all kinds of havoc is unleashed. The movie is really dumb, but hilarious and filled with strange moments that will keep film fans talking. It's showing at midnight at the Lumiere, and it will be a great time.
