The real name of the title character is Johnson Yap, previously the star of the Philippine actioner The Bionic Boy. Young Mr. Yap is, not surprisingly, part machine; fortunately his bionic mechanisms are in his legs, enabling him to outrun the battalions of villains he confronts throughout the film. The main heavy is a disenfranchised Nazi who plans to--all together now--RULE THE WORLD. To do this, he creates a device that paralyzes one's mind (perhaps he'd already used it on the screenwriters). A battle with a fire-breathing dragon is but one of the highlights of Dynamite Johnson, which also travelled under such titles as The New Adventures of the Bionic Boy and The 12 Million Dollar Boy.
