Storyline

When they learn of a secret covenant on the status of Hong Kong signed by Mao in 1944, Chinese factions, the British government, Hong Kong businessmen, AND the Mafia all try to be the first to take hold of it. Tough man Sean Dillon, pressured by Brigadier Ferguson into working for the British, does it his own way. But we see a new twinkle in his eye when he looks at sweet Su Yin... And can it be that pretty Inspector Hanna Bernstein is beginning to grow fond of Sean? Written by Horacio Abeledo <horabe@mail.retina.ar>

Very fine looking women
14 January 2000 | by (Larvik, Norway) – See all my reviews

This movie was really enjoyable. Although the plot wasn`t extremely interesting at times, the film had other qualities like some of the settings and beautiful women. Dapkunaite and Deborah Moore get a high score for there beauty, especially Dapkunaite was very charming. The music score was also fine and contributed as well.

The movie was 2h 40 min long but it was fine all the way through.

This was the first of Rob Lowes involment in Jack Higgin`s novels to be filmed, he showed in both film he`s a fine actor.
