Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Written and directed by cinematographer Robert Chappell, the Indonesian actioner Java Burn stars William Penn Sullivan as Nicky Hogan, your basic stubble-chinned American expatriate. While shacking up with local prostitute Aileen (Ayu Azhari), Hogan answers the mysterious summons of American woman Samantha (Ava Lazar). The latter wants to compromise a high-ranking government official, with the help of Hogan and Aileen. When said official is murdered, Hogan becomes the target of seemingly every CIA agent and paid assassin in the Far East. The "maguffin" in Java Burn is a packet of secret documents: Who's got them, who wants them, and who can be trusted?
