The Mighty Pek­ing Man

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - TV HIGHLIGHTS -

(Ce­les­tial Movies Hd, astro Ch 309, 5.50pm) the campy stuff made by the asy­lum pales in com­par­i­son with the campy stuff made by Shaw brothers, as this tow­er­ing (whoops, I said it again) KingKong- de­rived tale proves. danny Lee and Ku Feng are a mis­matched pair of ad­ven­tur­ers who jour­ney to the Hi­malayas where they find the gi­ant ape of the ti­tle — and Sa­man­tha (eve­lyn Kraft), the beau­ti­ful blonde raised by the ape af­ter she was stranded in the moun­tains as a child. Pek­ing Man, aka utam, is brought back to Hong Kong where he is shack­led and treated like a sideshow beast. When Sa­man­tha (who falls in love with Lee’s char­ac­ter) is threat­ened, utam es­capes and starts break­ing stuff. Much climb­ing of tall build­ings en­sues. Kraft run­ning around in an an­i­mal-skin bikini doesn’t hurt the film one bit ei­ther.
