Chinese Girls in Slow Motion! Martial Arts! Volleyball! It’s Beach Spike!


And I’m sure there’s a touching story about overcoming obstacles and obtaining personal goals buried in there somewhere, but who cares? Tony Tang’s upcoming Hong Kong volleyball outing “Beach Spike” feels like something that would play extremely well to the MTV crowd here in the States, particularly those who enjoy watching lithe Chinese girls play in the sand. Then again, who doesn’t enjoy watching lithe Chinese girls play in the sand? If you said no, you’re probably lying. Chances are you’ll come around once you take a gander at the embedded English-subtitled trailer. Trust me on this one.

To whet your appetite, read 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. Comedy, curves and kung fu collide in a fast-paced actioner in the madcap martial arts tradition of? Shaolin Soccer. And Kung Fu Hustle.

    typical movie made to attract young people (guys especially) who doesn’t mind watching some girls bouncing around.

  • George

    It’s about time for a lightweight Hong Kong comedy like they used to do in the 1980s.
