Movie Info

Top assassin Wong Low Get (Edward G. Robinson) hears word that he must end the life of his longtime confidant, Sun Yat Ming (J. Carroll Naish). In his last moments of life, Sun asks Wong to care for his soon-to-be-orphaned daughter, Toya San (Loretta Young). Wong agrees, and takes in Toya as his own. When fellow Chinatown thug Harry En Hai (Leslie Fenton) falls for Toya, it ignites a deadly and passionate love triangle that will test the true depth of Wong's loyalty to his fallen friend.

Audience Reviews for The Hatchet Man

  • Sep 27, 2014
    Just awful especially coming from a talent like Wellman. Miscasting doesn't even begin to cover the ridiculous sight of Eddie Robinson and Loretta Young as orientals especially against some true Asians in the cast. Robinson although never believable for an instant at least attempts some depth in his characterization but Young is wretched. She's heavily made up but she lets the makeup do whatever acting she even puts forth. She could just as well be at the sock hop as an opium den for all the shading she gives her role. I suppose they were trying for something unusual but if they really wanted to do that they would have cast Sessue Hayakawa an Anna May Wong in the Robinson and Young parts. As it is their complete unsuitability continually distracts from the story.
