Editorial Reviews

A three-woman task force blasts into action in this explosive adventure! Led by Captain Tie Hua, this beautiful, relentless she-squad tears across the globe from Asia to New York on a hunt for notorious international drug lord Hong Gang, who ruthlessly eliminates anyone who dares to stand in his way. Combining the dynamic action of Charlie's Angels with the non-stop Hong Kong action fans love, China Heat is a scorching ride packed with brutal fights, daring stunts, and non-stop excitement!

"China Heat" is a numbingly average addition to the Hong Kong "girls with guns" subgenre, co-directed by William Cheung (Death Duel of Kung Fu) and starring Sibelle Hu and Michael DePasquale. Unless these names mean anything special to you, I advise you to save your money, because there's nothing that this one does which Corey Yuen didn't do better six years earlier.

The story: a Hong Kong task force led by Captain Hua (Hu, My Lucky Stars) follows a crime lord (action director Allen Lan, Detective Dee & The Mystery of the Phantom Flame) to the United States.

Michael DePasquale is the main reason I bought this. He looks like a smaller version of Sly Stallone and isn't well known (his only solo vehicle, "The Cutoff", has yet to receive proper distribution), but after seeing him fight in The King of the Kickboxers, I was eager to see more stuff with him in it. "China Heat" here is one of the few movies wherein he has a role of substance, but it's disappointingly unsatisfying: he and the other performers are caricatures at best - something I could've lived with, but they're not even bolstered by good action scenes (more on them in a moment). The movie is so very uninspired that it'll be admirable if you bother to remember any of the characters' names.

If Edward D. Wood Jr. (PLAN NINE FROM OUTER SPACE) had ever made a kung fu film, it would resemble CHINA HEAT (1990), one of the most inept Hong Kong films yet released in the U.S. Supposedly set in New York City, it was shot somewhere in the Pacific Northwest (probably in and around Vancouver, like Jackie Chan's RUMBLE IN THE BRONX) and involves the attempts of a four-person squad of mainland Chinese police, led by the spunky Madame Wu (Sibelle Hu), to apprehend and extradite a Chinese drug dealer. In one great bit, Michael (Michael DePasquale Jr.), the New York cop assigned to them, takes the Chinese cops to what looks like a hotel dining room tricked up with a couple of lion statues and tells them, "This is the best Chinese restaurant in Noo Yawk!"
Later, they confront "Tony," the head of the New York mafia (played by someone who looks like--and probably was--a college professor) and pressure him to tell them where their kidnapped partner, Mandy, is. He breaks down (i.e. shrugs) and says, "The shipyard, outside of town." Without pressing for further details, they leave him and are next seen in several shots wandering around a massive shipyard, prompting Madame Wu's priceless observation, "This is really strange. This place is so huge and there's no one here." Mandy is soon spotted, tied up and hanging upside down from a ship's tower, screaming, "Get back, it's a trap!" In the ensuing battle, several bad guys spray machine gun fire at short range across an open space at Madame Wu. Not only do they miss, but when she pulls out her .38 revolver and starts shooting, the bad guys yell, "Let's get outta here!" and run away.
It's somewhat disconcerting to see the often excellent Sibelle Hu (DEVIL HUNTERS, FONG SAI YUK, TAI CHI II) stuck in this delirious low-budget mess of a movie.

I was warned not to get this movie by a few people, and I should have listened. Just about every scene is painful to watch. The story is about a cop played by Sibelle Hu (from Twinkle Twinkle Lucky Stars), 2 other female cops, and Michael Depasquale Jr (King of the Kickboxers) looking for a killer. The story is not worth going over, so I may as well talk about the fight scenes. To my surprise, there is some good fighting in this train wreck of a movie.

The first major fight has the villain taking on a few people. I have never seen this guy before, but I thought he looked good. Some good moves, and overall an above average fight scene. I did some research on hkcinemagic and the villain's name is Allen Lan Lai Han. It turns out he was the director of a great fighting movie called Death Games (starring Fan Siu Wong, Collin Chou and Billy Chow), an assistant action director on Kung Fu Hustle, and he directed the action in China Heat.

Next fight has one of the female cops taking on about 10 guys. Great choreography and a very nice fight scene. This woman blew me away with her skills. If there were a couple more scenes like this, the movie probably would have gotten a 3 star rating.

Next major fight has Mark Houghton (Skinny Tiger, Fatty Dragon) vs Michael Depasquale Jr. At the same time Sibelle Hu and the other female cop fight Sophia Crawford (US SEALS 2). There is some good kickboxing choreography with Mark Houghton and Michael Depasquale Jr, but the Sophia Crawford fight is only average at best. Sibelle Hu is doubled for almost every move she makes and Sophia Crawford doesn't really get to show off. Too bad, because Crawford has amazing skills.

The final fight is Michael Depasquale Jr vs the villain Allen Lan.
