China O'Brien

China O'Brien ★★★

Let's get the obvious out of the way: this is not a good movie. But it's pretty fun. Cynthia Rothrock couldn't act her way out of an acid-washed jean jacket, but watching her kick dudes in the face is not a terrible way to spend an evening.

There's quite a few other positives. The whole movie is super fast paced and it has a totally bonkers inciting action that I did not see coming at all.

Richard Norton's beard is also a huge plus for me. It doesn't even look real.

I think I've just become so used to a fair amount of lunacy from these types of movies (see Gymkata) that there just wasn't much here to elevate it for me, but it's still a fairly good time.
