4.0 out of 5 stars A Movie with a Heart December 29, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
This film was one which worked purely on emotional levels. Matt Dillon and Joan Chen give fine performances as individuals whose cultures' although widely different bring them together in a poignant but tragic way. Although the film tries to cover a large segment of time and simplifies the conflicts exhibited by the 50's and 70's from the cold war to the peace generation it does not lose track with its focus upon how events impact human relationships. Conscience, guilt, love, ambition, and redemption of the human spirit are sensitively embodied in this film. Sounds "corny", but it works. The entire cast does a fine job and the music score by Elliot Goldenthal is beautiful to hear. Bring a hankerchief. This is a film with a heart.

1.0 out of 5 stars Whooooo! Boy.....It Smells. April 19, 2012
Viewed: 3/12
Rate: 2

3/12: As much as I like Mat Dillon, Golden Gate was a misfit for him. As a matter of fact, the whole film was that abysmally bad. Joan Chen could not act these days, but she did have something going with Matt Dillon. Probably the fault of the whole film should lay on the hands of either the scriptwriters or Bruno Kirby who managed to ruin every film that he appeared in. Thankfully, he didn't for This Is Spinal Tap, or he might have gotten one from the band members. Golden Gate seemed to be more of a ripoff from Year of the Dragon but not too much from Chinatown. Pretty often, they will mention the word "Chinatown" as if it was an ominous word. But let's get real, it's just a square of a block or two filled with a lot of bad Chinese restaurants and overtly red decorations. All in all, Matt Dillon does what he can do, but he should have done something else other than this Golden Gate turkey.

2.0 out of 5 stars Passable film Nioir August 22, 2008
Although certainly not a great film, Golden Gate is a passable film Noir. Spanning 3 decades, this film follows the story of a rookie FBI agent who imprisons a Chinese laundryman during the Commuinism scare in 1952. Ten years later, he finds himself romantically involved with the daughter of the laundryman, as he tries to make amends for the tragic consequences of the false imprisonment.

Matt Dillon and Joan Chen create a steamy romantic chemistry in this film. Although the ending is a bit weird, this is a passable film noir featuring some great panoramic views of San Francisco.

5.0 out of 5 stars Golden Gate March 14, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Intriguing although improbable generational-racial love story about secrets and how they always get you in the end. I liked it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ok April 24, 2007
I really liked it except for the parts I didn't like. It would have been better if it was a different movie.
