STEVE'S MUSIC AND MOVIE MEMORIES!
This time THE ONE EYED CATS' Steve Nolte reviews the 1975 classic superhero flick Infra-Man!
Before watching Infra-Man:
I just saw the trailer for Infra-Man. There are really no words that can describe the villain monsters! Infra-man was made in 1975 and reminds me of Godzilla & Gamera & Johnny Socko's Giant Robot.
I loved Japanese monster movies when I was a kid (and I still do) and I'm assuming Toho created Infra-Man (but I haven't confirmed it). I do know that Infra-Man is available on Epix On Demand. I also know that my wife is going to love watching it tonight during dinner. lol!
After watching Infra-Man:
While watching last night I realized I was wrong in my guess that it was a Japanese film. There's a lot of kung fu. It turns out that Infra-Man was made in Hong Kong.
My wife laughed at the Spider/crab monster and motorcycle costumes. I think she gave it a full ten minutes of viewing. lol!
I was surprised to find this review from Roger Ebert in Wikipedia:
"Roger Ebert, on his March 7, 1976 review for the Chicago Sun-Times, gave the film two and a half stars out of four, concluding 'The movie even looks good: It's a classy, slick production by the Shaw Brothers, the Hong Kong kung fu kings. When they stop making movies like Infra-Man, a little light will go out of the world.'"
I give Infra-Man the same two and a half stars Roger Ebert gave it based on the ridiculous costumes. Maybe someday there will be an Infra-Man full cast reunion at the Monster Bash convention. To watch the trailer for Infra-Man just click HERE!
