The Far East picks a fight Down Under in THE MAN FROM HONG KONG, a cult martial arts action extravaganza from Ozploitation auteur Brian Trenchard-Smith (DEAD END DRIVE-IN, TURKEY SHOOT, BMX BANDITS, FROG DREAMING.) Featuring extraordinary car chases, dangerous feats and incredible setpieces from Aussie stunt legend Grant Page…and a co-starring turn from George Lazenby (James Bond in ON HER MAJESTY’S SECRET SERVICE.)
