Plotless obscurity
The Return Of The Bionic Boy should be avoided unless you are insane, or a zealous Bionic movie completist, even if such a person exists I doubt whether he/she could glean any joy from this plotless obscurity. After a promising funk driven Bruce Lee/Shaw Bros/Sonny Chiba style title sequence, which included a magnificently cheapjack mardi gra fire breathing dragon float, the film became a seemingly endless round of dull, repetitive and badly executed martial (No) Art battles. Not only was said boy far from bionic, his left leg appeared to have some batteries in it, the bionic sound effect was darn poor, and, like his powers utilized way to frequently. On the scale of bad movies this was unfortunately right up there with Bruce Willis's 'Color Of Night', yep, that grotesque. If you happen to know someone who brings this round with a plentiful supply of booze, simply get drunk and hurl master Bionic Boy out the window. Dreadful nonsense.
