Quotes:
Madame Woo:Tea?
Teresa Hardgrave:Thank you. Is it drugged?
Madame Woo:There is a saying among we Chinese that tea is the cup of humanity. It would be impious to offer it for any other reason.
Teresa Hardgrave:I've also heard it is said among the Chinese that there's much hidden in a cup of tea. Discover it with each sip.
Madame Woo:You know our poets?
Teresa Hardgrave:I've read some. But I am sure you didn't bring me here to discuss oriental poetry. What do you really want?

Uneven mix, 12 April 2015
Author: grybop from Greece

An action movie meets porn? Or a plot-driven adult film? China Girl is a little bit of both and neither at the same time. Let me explain.

The story is simple. Two scientists are abducted and tortured by a high-profile crime gang, who are after some substance that supposedly allows you to control people's minds. The gimmick is that the tortures are sexual - and this is where the porn comes in.

While it's admittedly interesting to see actual characters that you begin to care for get naked and engage in sexual acts, the sex scenes themselves are too badly shot to excite and too long to maintain interest. The plot, on the other hand, suffers from being little more than an excuse for those sex scenes - and even if we accept the credibility of someone using sex as a method for torture, the victims don't really look like they suffer from it.

So, while trying to be a bit of everything, this film ends up being nothing worthy of note and even fans of James Hong or Annette Haven might be disappointed. The music is surprisingly good though, especially during the imaginative animation that accompanies the opening credits.
