This Columbia quickie stars Richard Denning as an American soldier of fortune who wanders into Hong Kong. He is hired by interested parties, both business and military, to prevent the tiny British-owned island from falling into the hands of the Communist. Had the film's "head Red" Ben Astar been willing to wait until 1997, he would have had Hong Kong free and clear when its ownership reverted to the Chinese. But he wasn't willing, thus Denning and his pals kick the Commies out, and also rout a few Chinese river pirates while they're at it. This is not what one could call a slice of life.
