Storyline

In Hong Kong's Paradise Cove Sharon ('Chrissie Chau') and Rachel (Theresa Fu) work at a restaurant of their kung fu master uncle Tao ('Lo Mang') while taking on rivals in beach volleyball matches. The wealthy Bu family has plans to have the beach made into a playground for the rich and getting rid of the youth at the beach. Mrs. Bu's two Eurasian daughters, Natalie ('Jessica C') and Phoenix ('Phoenix Valen') challenge Sharon and Rachel to a volleyball match which Natalie and Phoenix win. Phoenix and Natalie give Rachel and Sharon a challenge: if the two local girls enter and win the upcoming All Hong Kong Womens Volleyball tournament, Mrs. Bu will revise her plans to further develop the area. Sharon and Rachel feel they don't have a chance to win the tournament. Their uncle then Tao teaches the girls kung-fu skills that they apply to volleyball. Written by johanvos

HK Neo Reviews: Beach Spike
22 November 2011 | by webmaster-3017See all my reviews

If you watch Beach Spike as a film, it will be so terrible that you just want to smash the TV screen in front of you. However, Beach Spike is not a film, but rather a showcase for the "le-mo" bouncing up and down in their bikini and on a beach playing volleyball. While the film first few volleyball match seems to satisfy the eager awaiting candy coated eyes of the drooling audiences. The same cannot be said about the final showdown. Rather than focusing on key body parts, the camera cuts and edits and fade away. For the expecting audience, this is clearly bad filmmaking at its worst. Therefore coming into this film, it is best to not view this as a film, but rather a chance to get to know the likes of Chrissie Chau, Theresa Fu and Jessica C. Apart from that, fans of Lam Suet can rejoice. Otherwise, stay away.

Neo rates it 2/10.
