Short and silly crime film
23 October 2010 | by (Edinburgh, Scotland, UK) – See all my reviews

The FBI hires a man to impersonate a convict who in turn will infiltrate a Chinese crime gang.

Daughter of the Tong is another cheap and cheerful Poverty Row production. Like most of these films it's derivative and not especially good. The story is pretty silly and senseless. But there are some worthwhile elements to the production. Firstly, the villainess played by Evelyn Brent is quite a striking presence, even if she looks seriously unOriental. She makes a nice change from the typical male crime bosses you would expect in most of these productions, and she does have a pretty cool look. The other notable part of this film is the extended car chase, which is pretty dynamic by the standards of these old creaky movies. But other than these two aspects the film is not overly of interest. I must say though that it's far from the worst in this type of movie and its short running time is certainly not a bad thing, as it never out-stays its welcome.
