Another Trailer and a Lengthy Synopsis for Director Tony Tang’s Beach Spike

7 Comments

For those of you who thought that “Beach Spike” doesn’t have a solid story, just take a look at that lengthy synopsis posted below. Man, that thing is long! How can a motion picture without a plot have such a long, complicated plot summary? That’s insane! All kidding aside, you can now properly investigate the latest trailer for this upcoming martial arts/beach volley epic by turning your attention to the embedded trailer below. Who knows? It may make your day much brighter. Then again, it may completely destroy your faith in Chinese cinema. Either way, it’s gonna be lots of fun.

Before doing that, take a look at this synopsis:

Hong Kong’s Paradise Cove is like Venice Beach on the South China Sea, a haven of tanned bikini-clad Asian babes, bronzed bodybuilder types, artists, surfers, musicians, beach bums? Chrissie (Chrissie Chau) and Kim (Theresa Fu) are two of Paradise’s sunniest spirits, working at the restaurant of their kung fu master uncle Tao (Lo Man) and taking on all comers in lively beach volleyball matches.

One day, a shadow falls on this apparently endless summer: The wealthy Bu Family plans to turn the beach into a playground for the rich, banishing the young, poor and fun-loving. Mrs. Bu’s two arrogant Eurasian daughters, Porsche (Jessica C) and Phoenix (Phoenix Valen) challenge Chrissie and Kim to a volleyball match, and our heroines suffer a humiliating defeat.

The two Eurasian vixens lay down a challenge: if the two local girls enter and win the upcoming All Hong Kong Women’s Volleyball tournament, Mrs. Bu will revise her plans to further develop the area. Though they accept the challenge, Chrissie and Kim feel they have little chance of winning the tournament, until Tao teaches them superior kung fu skills that can be applied to the volleyball court?

After surviving their training under Tao, the girls get to test their newfound skills both on and off the sand?

“Beach Spike”, which stars Chrissie Chau, Teresa Fu, Phoenix Valen, Jessica C, Law Chung Him, and Lo Mang, opens in China on July 7th, 2011. Be there!

    My only issue with this film? It’s so squeaky clean looking my teeth hurts from all the sugar. Too bad Wong Jing didn’t produce it. The sleaze would have been unbelievable.

      Holy cow. If Wong Jing had produced this thing, I would be in seventh heaven. There’s always hope for a sequel, right?

    Problem with Hong Kong movies are that they NEVER show nudity (unlike the Korean films).
