Storyline

A boatload of Westerners is trapped in Manchuria as bandits led by Russian renegade Voronsky ravage the area. Seeking refuge in a fortified inn, the group is led by the boat's Captain Carson, who becomes involved with a woman who "belongs" to Voronsky. Carson must contend with the bandits outside and the conflicting personalities of those trapped inside the inn, as well as dealing with spies among the inn's personnel.

first-rate B-movie
5 June 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Travelers in China are trapped in a Manchurian riverside village by marauding bandits. Richard Dix is the hard-drinking riverboat captain who takes charge of the situation, and he has a STAGECOACH-like assortment of tourists under his wing who must unite in the face of danger. This is an ARGOSY magazine pulp novelette version of China, admittedly, a la the work of Loring Brent, but it is quite nicely done with some good atmosphere and plenty of action. And this may be the only movie in which you see Edward Everett Horton blasting away with a machine gun. Solid 7 on the IMDB scale.
