Jack is almost positive that he could not have done this, but he can't really remember exactly what happened as he had quite a bit to drink.
Silmarwen
The plot was suspenseful and the acting was great.

Well done story/movie. Seemed realistic. Plenty of suspense, action. A nail biter. Will recommend to my friends. Have watched the movie several times.

Red Corner shows what can occur in the courts of China. It emphasizes the need for change.
In the movie, Gere's character has to go through an uphill battle to prove his innocence. He is told that he is guilty before he has even given a chance to argue in trial. The end result of the movie proves satisfying.
Giovanni's review is inaccurate. Gere's acting is good. His character is not a common business man. Giovanni must have missed part of the movie because it is shown that Gere's character studied law at Harvard. His character requests for a English translation of the Chinese laws and studies them. He uses his intelligence to figure out what can be done in the courtroom, but learns that the laws that he read about don't stand for much.

I was introduced to the movie by a friend who was a caucasian-american who had a affinity for Asian women, not that there's anything wrong with that. Anyways, it's one of the only Richard Gere movies I can stomach and an incredible story and excellent casting. Like the dude who played Ryu in that HORRIBLE Street Fighter (American-made) movie, and Bai Ling –– before you made herself look coo-coo on that Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew show.

This was a great movie with Richard Gere and I have to say his respect for and acknowledge of relations with The People's Republic of China really made a great movie to watch. this was a time when the US was just beginning to do business with China and how The Chinese even wast to see a better relations with the world. A movie that will kep you guessing what really happened that night.

This is an old, Out of Print DVD title with an excellent 1.85.1 anamorphic transfer. it's a good, original courtroom drama that doesn't seem to be made anymore in this era of silly CGI Comic Book movies, reboots and remakes. I'm surprised the public isn't tired of it yet and screaming for something original.

Nothing to write home about. Ho hum. Not the best movie that Richard Gere has been in, and he didn't save it.
