Infra-Man (a.k.a. Super Infra-Man) is believed to be the first Chinese superhero film of all time. Ironic, seeing as how it's a riff on a Japanese creation - Ultraman. What is it about stringy superheroes in bionic suits that drive Asians wild? All I know is that this is an uber-cheesy b-movie that you have to see to believe. There is nothing to the plot. A demonic dragon bat cunt from outer space calls upon her fleet of goofy monsters to torment Earth. A scientist invents an indestructible suit to combat these evil forces and convinces a fit young man to assume the role of Infra-Man, protector of galaxies (or at least China).
Infra-Man melds sci-fi, horror, martial arts, kaiju, psychedelia and basic action. It's fucking insane. I know what you are thinking, and yes, this is essentially a feature-length episode of Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers. But this is so much more awesome. Infra-Man sports a breathless pace, garish sets, and impressive fight sequences. Anyone who gets bored with this flick needs to cut downers from their diet. Speaking of narcotics, I'm pretty sure that Infra-Man is crack. Literally! Tell a crackhead to snort the DVD, and I guarantee that he won't be able to tell the difference.
In order to accurately describe this film, I'll have to steal a page from Joe Bob Briggs. That's right; it's time for Drive-In Totals!
