Word of a monster ape ten stories tall living in the Himalayas reaches fortune hunters in Hong Kong. They travel to India to capture it, but wild animals and quicksand dissuade all but Johnny, an adventurer with a broken heart. He finds the monster and discovers it’s been raising a scantily-clad woman, Samantha, since she survived a plane crash years before that killed her parents. –IMDb

The Shaw Bros.' attempt to get a piece of that mid-70s Kong action. Always ridiculous, but never less than entertaining. Evelyne Kraft gets bitten by a snake on her upper thigh, so Johnny sucks it out. Then there's a cheesecake montage of Kraft romping around with a live cheetah on her shoulders. It's that kind of movie, my friends.
A must-see cheeseball buffet of unintentional comedy from the Shaw Bros., a flick that ranks up there with the insanity that is SUPER INFRAMAN.
Really dopey giant ape movie from Hong Kong complete with cheesy special effects, snake-battling jaguars, buxom jungle girls, deadly quicksand, and screaming townspeople fleeing from destruction. It's all just as ridiculous as it sounds, though not quite as entertaining. Marginal fun for B-movie fans, but far from the best.
