A Second Trailer Appears For BEACH SPIKE, These Lovely Girls Know How To Play With Balls

A second trailer for Tony Tang's BEACH SPIKE has appeared online just before its release in China/Hong Kong on July 7th. Its set in a area of Hong Kong called Paradise Beach, the Venice Beach of South East Asia. When I was in China 2 summers ago I was amazed at the amount of middle class that now live not just in Hong Kong but in mainland China and Paradise Cove is certainly the holiday playgrounfd for China's young rich elite. This movie is more of your 'fun variety' rather than the more serious action & thrillers the country is more famous for. Think MTV generation through in beautiful Chinese girls who know how handle there balls, thats beach volleyball, mix in a little martial art and a love story and you have BEACH SPIKE! There is also a very long synopsis too!

BEACH SPIKE stars Chrissie Chau, Teresa Fu, Suet Lam and Lo Meng.

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. Comedy, curves and kung fu collide in a fast-paced actioner in the madcap martial arts tradition of Shaolin Soccer and Kung Fu Hustle.
