( Robot of the Stars )

( aka Mazinger Z, aka Iron Superman)


DIRECTOR: Ting-Hung Kuo, Koichi Takano

STARS: Stephen Yip, Paul Chun, Lin-Lin Li, Godfrey Ho

SYNOPSIS: Some crazy filmmakers grabbed footage and effects from an early 1970's Japanese TV series, added new footage with Chinese actors (including future schlock "director" Godfrey Ho!) and dubbed it into German as a feature film! This film is like someone threw Gigantor, Godzilla, Inframan and Thunderbirds into a blender and hit the smoothie button. A scientifically advanced team of heroes uses computers, jets and a giant robot to battle bad guys.The robot has a cockpit in the head where one of the team sits and operates it ala Pacific Rim. The villains are from outer space and hide out in a secret cave. They're responsible for ships disappearing in the Bermuda Triangle! Their leader, known as "the Coordinator"(!), has pointy troll hair that changes color from scene to scene. The henchmen wear black & white football uniforms and helmets. The bulk of the film is made up of wild "Megaman"-style battles between the good robot and a never-ending roster of evil robots with drill hands, laser eyes, fishbowl heads, ice weapons, rocket launchers, etc. It's mostly actors in robot suits but there's lots of miniature effects as well. The film plot jumps ahead by leaps and bounds since they're cramming a season worth of information into a 80 minute feature. It's a film of almost nonstop action and unintentional laughs safe enough to show to your pre-teen relatives. In dubbed German with English subtitles!
