Storyline

A priest (Robert Ginty) learns that he fathered a child during his tour of duty in Vietnam and that the mother and child has relocated to Houston, Texas in the Little Saigon quarters. Searching for them, he also finds massive prejudice against the Vietnamese people, particularly among the fishing community in which they are trying to work. Setting out to right the wrongs, the priest tends to use more fisticuffs than friendly, priestly persuasion. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

A Little Touch of Hell!
13 February 2001 | by (New England) – See all my reviews

Stylish and polished updating of the 70s/80s "Good Man in Bad War" genre of Vietnam flicks, several of which star/director Ginty played in himself (Who can forget THE EXTERMINATOR?). Ginty made a name for himself in TV's THE PAPER CHASE, but will forever be remembered for his roles as a pretty-boy action-hero in dozens of low budget foreign potboilers. This here, however, is an exciting and beautiful film, shot in real-life "Little Saigon," a bizarre, corrupt Chinatown clone that's nestled in the heart of Houston, Texas, filled with teeming masses of Viet refugees and their descendents, all trying to scrape together a living in the land of (diminishing) opportunity. An interesting departure for Ginty, who is still directing today.
