Storyline

Roguish, Indiana Jones-like, fedora and leather jacket-wearing American adventurer and black marketeer Jeff Williams is hired to steal a priceless, jewel-encrusted, gold statue of Buddha, the only possession of a small, recently orphaned, Chinese boy called Wei Lin, who arrived in Honk Kong with a group of refugees escaping the Chinese civil war that Mao's Communists are winning. Jeff cold-heartedly does his job only to end up being stuck with the kid, who sees him as a surrogate father and refuses to let go of him. When Jeff meets a pretty school teacher and daughter of a missionary, Julie McQuade, his tough shell begins to break as he grows fond of both her and the kid and realizes he must help them escape the city while there's still time. However, his non-sentimental employees double cross him and Jeff must use all his skills and wits to survive this adventure.

Not all that good
26 June 2004 | by See all my reviews

My best memory of this film is when Ronald Reagan's character walks into a Chinese refugee camp and asks a Chinese gentleman "what kind of clambake is this"? Very sensitive and thoughtful stuff. They showed Reagan films on tv quite a bit back when he was first elected president, then they started to disappear. With the passing of the great communicator, perhaps they will reappear, but I would bet against it. I don't recall much else about this eminently forgettable film with the exception of the quoted line, but I do recall it being pretty much total dreck, and Reagan giving his normal b-minus level performance. It's tough to actually write ten lines about this film, but I'm trying my best!
