1992 action film starring Brandon Lee as Jake Lo, art student scarred by witnessing his father being killed in the Tiananmen Square massacre and wants nothing do with politics while he's living and studying the US. But he's brought to a party by pro-Chinese democracy activists... where he witnesses a Mafioso drug dealer killing the holding the party. Fisticuffs ensue. And Jake has to go into protective custody...
Tropes found in this work:
- Actor Allusion:
- Corrupt Cop: The agents at Jake's safe house.
- Fair Cop: Karla Withers, our hero's Love Interest (played by Kate Hodge so ensuring Allison Pregler will have seen this).
- Mr. Fanservice: Brandon Lee spends a lot of time in a tank top and even gets a whole fight scene without a shirt on.
- Shout-Out: Brandon Lee was a Jackie Chan fan, so he pays homage by incorporating key moves from Police Story and Dragons Forever in the final fight scenes.
