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?
Cast & Credits
Beach Spike equates to a national film, just like here, they also have a lot to learn in film production.
Good part that has Fu Theresa in the cast, in fact the whole cast was well chosen and had a great performance of interpretation. The soundtrack is also praiseworthy, using local music values ??culture.
At first there is a negativity because of using an artificial ball, it is visible that the ball was introduced by computer graphics.
In other slow motion scenes to give more emphasis to the scene, they literally dug a hole in the sand and repeated the scene twice, that was weird, the ball just disappears in the hole.
The speed of the volley ball, in serves and cuts exceed 130 km / h, this for males, while the average female is 110 km / h. In other words, that hole-in-the-wall scene does not proceed, after all, the ball is composed of leather and polyester which reduces the impact dramatically, otherwise players' hands and fingers would be crushed, but it is common to see players and players with broken fingers, Also use tape on the fingers to reduce friction and create a kind of protective glove, is also useful for decreasing dislocations and sprains.
And to close with the golden key, nothing like that mega, hyper, ultra "traveled in mayonnaise" with that sequence of underwater scenes. I laughed at that. I will not comment on the candles on the steps and the cameraman in the middle of the bush.
In terms of facts and curiosity, there are beach volleyball sprinters in gyms, although they are not homologated by FiVB (International Volleyball Federation).
Note that all the time during the film was used a half wilted ball, not to hurt the actresses.
In general until it is a good movie, one should value the not so correct ones so that they can get excited and in the next to do a better production.
