After being blown up by a Japanese yakuza for dating the wrong woman, rich playboy Lee Chak-sing (Stephen Chow) is brought back to life by a mad scientist. Only thing is, he now has a computer chip in his brain and the ability to turn into different household utensils. It’s not long until the chaos he makes grabs the attention of the yakuza, who are out to kill him again.

Curator’s Recommendation:

Partially shot in Hawaii, Sixty Million Dollar Man is as much a Chow showcase as an introduction to the wild world of co-director Wong Jing — a filmmaker so prolific that this is one of three features he worked on in 1995. Watch sparks fly between Chow and his regular on-screen sidekick from A Chinese Odyssey and Shaolin Soccer, the late ​​Ng Man-tat.

A pre-screening introduction will be provided by the curators.

This screening is part of Odyssey 2023 film festival (26 May – 30 June)’s Stephen Chow in Focus programme, curated by Daniel Montesinos-Donaghy and Riley Wong.
