Hong Kong 97 takes place, appropriately enough, in Hong Kong right before the transfer of power from Britain to China. Reginald Cameron, an assassin affiliated with a large corporation with interests in the colony, guns down key members of the Chinese envoy which will take charge of Hong Kong the next day. Suddenly, he becomes a target for every two-bit mercenary in the city. With the help of his company mentor (Brion James), a clueless friend (Tim Thomerson), and his ex-girlfriend (Ming-Na Wen), Cameron must unravel the motives behind his sudden target status and escape Hong Kong alive.

When Reg, Simon and Katie enter the lobby in the final shoot-out they enter it from the right. In the background there is a sign saying 'Elevators' with an arrow to the left, but they just came from the elevators so the arrow should be pointing to the right. See more »
I rented Decoy and this flick one night as a Robert Patrick double bill. Talk about disappointment. We've all seen bad movies before. Hong Kong 97 unfortunately turned out to be another one of them. The story would seem to have potential, but nothing comes of it. Robert Patrick stars along side a bunch recognizable faces (some b-movie regulars) that have seen better days in the typical gun-for-hire on the run / can't trust anyone routine.
I still remember when Hong Kong was going to revert powers. It was almost surreal. All Western-American assets were clearing out and the news was portraying it as the 90's version of the Berlin Wall. Of course, this movie has none of that underlying paranoia or sense of unease. It's just a bunch of cheaply filmed scenes helmed by Albert Pyun. For fans of direct-to-video action, this doesn't register a blimp on the radar and even Robert Patrick fans will have to agree Hong Kong 97 is pretty sore.
