Audience Reviews for China Gate

  • Mar 09, 2015
    In "China Gate," it is 1954. And with the French about to be unceremoniously kicked out of Vietnam once and for all, they intend to give the Communists one last explosion to remember them by. To do so, they want blow up an ammo dump. So, they recruit Lucky Legs(Angie Dickinson) who can get them through an enemy checkpoint. She wants her son to be sent to school in America in return. They agree, even if it is awkward to have Sgt. Brock(Gene Barry) commanding the mission, as he is the father of her child who had rejected him due to his Asian heritage. In any case, it is Goldie(Nat King Cole) who volunteers to carry the volatile triggers Even in hindsight, it might seem tone deaf to dedicate a movie about Vietnam to France.(I wonder if Jean-Luc Godard ever saw this one.) But due to Samuel Fuller's film making prowess that owes somewhat to journalism, sensitive yet hard boiled, his film "China Gate" does not end up being the unintentional laugh riot that John Wayne's "The Green Berets" turned out to be. Overall, "China Gate" is a fairly entertaining action movie with a couple of neat touches. For example, not only does Fuller call out the lead character for his racism but also makes a provocative move in 1957 with a soldier who is black, highly competent, brave, resilient and well-armed.
