After a drug raid goes bust in the Far East, six Interpol agents are taken captive by a very brutal drug cartel - so the FBI sends its most capable man to Bangkok, Captain Bob Wallace (Robert Malcolm) to take care of the situation - but at first Bob looks rather clueless, and if it wasn't for the hints a mysterious woman, who later turns out to be fellow agent Suzy (Shih Szu), drops now and again, he would be a total fish out of water. Eventually, she gets him to Hong Kong and to a kung fu tournament where Bob meets his best friends, masterthieves Max (Antonio Cantafora) and Jerry (Sal Borgese), who first get him beaten to a pulp by their kung fu master Tang (Lo Lieh) - who later also turns out to be an FBI agent -, then have him rapidly healed via accupuncture. Bob asks Max and Jerry for their cooperation, but they only agree to it when he agrees to give them access to the local American embassy where $3 million are stashed away in the safe - and of course, he does so knowing that he will releave them of their loot after the mission. So with the gang in place, they go up against local crime kingpin Chen-Loh (Tung Lin), teaching him a good lesson, before heading over to Taiwan, donning their invincibility suits, giving the drug cartel a good thrashing, then freeing the agents just in time.

 

If you've seen one Three Supermen film, you've pretty much seen them all (despite the constantly rotating leads): The story really is nothing more than a hanger for action - which here ranges in quality from so-so to pretty decent - and comedy - with not all the humour working for sure, and several of the jokes being of poor quality. The acting is mostly wooden, but at least Sal Borgese really finds into his part and gets the best laughs, and the invincible "superman" costumes are really rather ridiculous. So no, this is not a good movie - but chances are you'll get a slightly nostalgic kick out of it anyhow (I know I did) for its relative carelessness, its certain anything-goes mentality, its comicbook charm, and its all-round cheesiness.
