Doctor Ting has just developed a formula to end all world hunger - but greedy foreignt businessmen want to make it their own at any price, even if that price involves a kidnapping and some murders. So Doctor Ting calls Green Hornet for help - but Green Hornet is temporarily out of commission, so he sends his assistant Kato (Bruce Li) to help out, who has a special interest in the doctor's daughter Alice.

When Kato and his pal Tan Yu arrive at the doctor's place, they find the kidnapping of doctor Ting and his daughter already well in place, but after a (not so) wild car chase, they can beat the living daylights out of the baddies and free Ting and Alice. So the baddies up the ante and hire super martial artist Superman, his apemen (?) and his two black superstudents, then kidnap the doctor again ... but they forget his heart medicine, so Alice has to come and bring it ... which of course leads Kato and Tan Yu right into the lion's den, where for a while they are distracted by the monkeymen. Meanwhile the two superstudents learn what his master has gotten them into and turn against him, and ultimately prevent the worst when he goes against Kato.

In their final fight, Superman and Kato pretty much take each other apart, and it's more luck than anything else that Kato manages to ultimately slay Superman. Meanwhile, the baddies have of course gotten their filthy hands on doctor Ting and try to get him over the border ... but a regenerated Green Hornet has taken up pursuit, and the baddies' driver is an undercover policewoman, too. So yeah, everything ends happily ...

 

Above all else, this is not an official Green Hornet adaptation, which should explain why the costumes of the Hornet and Kato differ from all other adaptations quite a bit, and why neither character is really in character (if that makes any sense). But of course, the Hornet's involvement in Bruce Lee against Supermen relies on the fact that Bruce Lee was actually in the 1960's TV series, so ...

All of this of course says next to nothing about the film as such - but quite expectedly, it is highly derivative martial arts trash, shot on the cheap but fattened up with a few cheap and campy superhero outfits. There's really nothing in this one that would distinguish it from the myriad other bruceploitation films of its time (even if this one comes from the bizarre end of the "genre") - which of course makes this movie well worth a chuckle if nothing else. It's not a great film by any measure of course, but who'd expect that from a movie called "Bruce Lee against Supermen", right? Instead, it's a trip down nostalgia lane, to a time when films like this were actually made and distributed on the premise that they would be mistaken for actual Bruce Lee films. And what people got instead was so-bad-it's-good entertainment ... well, can't lose them all I suppose ;)
