Sonny (Johnson Yap), the bionic boy, has to go to hospital because his legs showed a malfunction. And once there, his super-hearing overhears the delirous ramblings from a burn victim next door going on about a dragon. That of course spikes Sonny's interest, especially when this man is picked up the next night by someone not looking like hospital staff - so he follows these men to a warehouse where he's threatened by several gunmen ... but he does manage to get hold of a suitcase which the whole fuzz is apparently about.

Sonny's temporary guardian Cleopatra Wong (Marrie Lee) does not approve of his shenanigans and thinks he's making stuff up, but when she sees him attacked by a gang of thugs (whom he easily handles), she becomes curious and has the suitcase examined ... and it contains plutonium. Somehow she finds a lead to a native village, and once there she learns that it is terrorized by a steel dragon ... and soon she finds a nearby secret paramilitary complex, Dragon Command, led by one Nazi called Herr Kunz, and finds out about the organisation's plans to destroy Hong Kong as a first step in an effort to rule the world - something Cleopatra of course has to prevent by all means necessary. But then she's captured by the baddies and tortured ... but saved by Sonny, and together with the police force, the two of them now launch a commando operation, beating up or shooting everyone in sight, and ultimately, Cleopatra makes it to the inner sanctum and destroys the Dragon Command's ultimate weapon. Herr Kunz tries to make a getaway in the steel dragon, actually a heavily armed armoured car that just looks like a dragon, but Sonny stops the steel dragon pretty much single handedly, taking apart the dragon's entire weapon system with his bare hands and ultimately throwing it over a cliff.

 

Dynamite Johnson is by no means a good film - but as far as trashy Filippino action entertainment goes, it's not half bad, it's rather well-paced, is based on something resembling a plot, and there are many odd elements in there - from the depiction of the native tribe to of course the steel dragon. And Marrie Lee is sassy enough to bring her (rather flat) character to life. That all said, the film loses much of its tension in the final showdown, which just drags on too long and with each shoot-out becomes more repetitive (even though attempts at humour grant a little bit of change).

Well, not great by any means, but fun at least.
