For the First Time EVER, The Man from Hong Kong (1975) co-starring George Lazenby is released on Blu-Ray (and DVD) newly remastered 1080p HD release from an exclusive 4K transfer with loads of Special Features.

Synopsis:
The Far East picks a fight Down Under in The Man from Hong Kong, a cult martial arts action extravaganza from Ozploitation legend Brian Trenchard-Smith.

When Hong Kong Inspector Fang Sing Leng (Jimmy Wang Yu) travels to Sydney to interview drug trafficker Win Chan (martial arts star and director Sammo Hung) he is flung into an international investigation destined to test his mettle and might.

Teaming up with Aussie Detectives Gross (Hugh Keays-Byrne) and Taylor (Roger Ward), Fang soon discovers a cunning connection between Win Chan's drug imports and larger-than-life local gangster Jack Wilton (George Lazenby, James Bond in On Her Majesty's Secret Service).

Determined to get his man, Fang will stop at nothing – bringing all manner of mayhem to the streets in a full-on fist fighting spectacle of explosive proportions.

A true Ozploitation classic, featuring extraordinary car chases, dangerous stunts and incredible set pieces from Grant Page, The Man from Hong Kong (AKA Dragon Flies) also stars Bill Hunter, Frank Thring, Rebecca Gilling and Rosalind Spiers.
