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.

A caption at the end of the movie gives the wrong date. "7:34 A.M. JULY 30, 1997 Hong Kong is again the possession of the People's Republic of China. It was business as usual..." This should read "JULY 1". A caption at the beginning of the movie correctly gave a date of "JUNE 30". See more »
We watched one of those rare movies the other night that was so bad, it actually was good.
Improbability piled on top of unlikelihood layered over with banality and stupefying inconsequence.
Other than that, it was quite good.
The first "humping scene" was one minute and ten seconds in. (We have a little pool every time we watch a movie. Usually if you choose any time within the first twenty minutes, you have a chance.) Why stick with it, why not scrap the tape and use it to record Debbie Travis.
Because this movie boggled the mind. Just when you said "it can't get any worse" it did.
But the definitively awful thing about it was the amount of gunplay.
Hi I don't like your necktie take that blam blam.
In one memorable scene, the leading man ---HEY, LOOK AT ME, I'M DOING A BAD IMPRESSION OF PIERCE BROSNAN --- naked and in bed with an equally naked lady (well, I doubt she was much of a "lady") is interrupted by three gunmen.
He rises from the bed, a gun in each hand, which he uses to dispatch the bad guys. BLAM BLAM WHANG ZING BANG Actually, if they were trying to kill this character, they would have been GOOD guys.
But we continue to agonize over our handgun problem.
The reasons for it are pretty obvious when you watch a movie like this
