Storyline

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.

Trivia

Although set in Hong Kong, several key scenes in the films were shot in the Philippines at the same time as Pyun was prepping Heatseeker, which along with Spitfire was shot back to back with this film. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Decent, but needs a lot of work
28 December 1999 | by (Allentown, PA) – See all my reviews

"Hong Kong '97" is one of those many "hitmen-with-a-conscience" flicks. The T-1000 himself Robert Patrick plays a laconic assassin named Cameron, who succeeds in killing a Chinese diplomat just on the eve of the day Hong Kong becomes part of China from the U.K. The killing results in trouble for Cameron, as guys with itchy trigger-fingers try to pump lead into our "hero", his girlfriend, and his buddy (played by Brion James, who finally portrays a good guy!) Though visually striking, "Hong Kong 97" is a pretty dense film, with an incoherent plot and bad dialogue. Patrick tries hard, but his charming good lucks can't really save this film from falling down a well of despair!
