Movie synopsis
Richard Gere stars as Jack Moore, a high-powered American attorney (Richard Gere) who finds the rules of order are different in a Chinese courtroom when he is arrested and falsely accused of murdering Lin Cheng (Tzi Ma), a seductive young model, and daughter of a powerful General (Tsai Chin). Discovering that the rule of thumb is guilty before proven innocent, he realizes that he must convince his court-appointed attorney Shen Yuelin (Bai Ling, in a quietly powerful role) that he is blameless before he can even begin to convince the court. Moore struggles to endure torturous prison conditions as he slowly begins to prove his innocence to Shen Yuelin, who is forced to question the teachings of the cultural revolution and the court's condemnation of an innocence man. Together they must fight to find evidence that has disappeared, while risking their own lives in a city seething with enemies. As they begin to uncover the scandal behind the murder of Li Cheng they must fight the rules of the old guard in a battle for life and free will. A seductive thriller, that includes beautiful footage of Beijing and rural China.

Sight and Sound - Philip Horne (06/01/1998)

"...Bai Ling creates a full-blooded character and role model for young girls..." -- 3 out of 4 stars
USA Today - Mike Clark (10/31/1997)

"...Ling gives the film not only grace but also substantial gravity....She clearly brings urgency to this role..."
New York Times - Janet Maslin (10/31/1997)

Red Corner is a collector's must-have

Review For: Red Corner (DVD, Contemporary Classics)

This movie is all about relationship wrapped in a typical murder and trial archetype film.
Although the plot of the movie is great, the characters created by Richard Gere and Bai Ling are plain excellent. The movie explores the culture differences between Oriental and Western civilizations through an accused and his attorney and how truth and trust makes reveal one to another.

A very well done movie. Outstanding performance from Bai Ling. If you are a fan, you NEED that movie. Same for Gere fans. Not your typical guy movie, lots of sensitivity from the director who gave heart to this film. Bravo.

Non stop thriller

Review For: Red Corner (DVD, Contemporary Classics)

The 2 hours go by before you know it. This is an excellent movie with a great script and strong performances. Especially by Bai Ling. I'm not a big fan of Richard Gere and he was also excellent. I am very interested in China, so that may have something to do with why I loved this movie so much. It gives you an insight into a part of China the west knows very little about. It also has wonderful footage of Beijing. I highly recommend it. So much so that I was compelled to write my first movie review.

RED CORNER

Review For: Red Corner (DVD, Contemporary Classics)

I like the movie first of all because Richard Gere, comes out in this movie, and because he is in the struggle trying to survive, a murder he did not comit, and something that he can do is to go to the embassy for help that is if the police in the communism country doesn"t get him first!!

somehow missed the 1st time

Review For: Red Corner (DVD, Contemporary Classics)

I don't know how we missed this movie when it came out. But we saw it on cable and wanted it for our collection. My husband went to the Video Store and they could not get it for us anymore. the same thing at all the other stores. SO here it comes: ebay to the rescue.
It's a great movie that gives you insight into the chinise legal system and makes you think about what can happen when you travel to other contrys.
Dont count on your embasy to be of much help.
