| Standard star vehicle for Billy Chong
SUPER POWER is a vehicle for Indonesian martial artist Billy Chong at the height of his short-lived fame. The plot is about some vengeful Manchu patriots who decide to wreak vengeance on the 'Southern style' champions who defeated their master some decades previously. To this end they tour the countryside, beating up the champions until they find one person with the willpower and skill to stand against them.

Step in Chong, who we meet doing some energetic ring training in the film's opening sequence. SUPER POWER is a standard martial arts outing with plenty of training sequences to see it through; one lengthy sojourn sees our hero going into the wood to go through the movements. His training styles all have cool names like 'north eagle', 'horsehead fist' and even 'crouching tiger' years before the Ang Lee movie.

Although this is a low budget film it's a fairly watchable one, liberally borrowing stock music from Hollywood. The fight scenes are acrobatic rather than brutal and the final one on one in particular sees the participants jumping and flipping all over the screen. No masterpiece, but watchable enough for genre enthusiasts.
