When trying to examine a classic hardcore film, one must take several things into consideration:
1) The acting/plot might not be as good or coherent as one might like, and what is usually left is akin to grade B Hollywood fare.
2) There will probably be too much sex and it will take away from the story.
3) The production values won't always be top notch.

Well China Girl is one of those rare films that truly does work "both ways" so to speak. In one sense, it is a sex filled hardcore romp and on the other hand, a rather mild B-movie style spy yarn.
Featuring the beautiful Annette Haven in her first major starring role, China Girl revolves around a silly storyline of a secret government science project to create a drug which makes people have to tell everything they know about some prompted topic, sort of like truth serum, I guess. Sound confusing? To be honest, the exact purpose of this drug is never made clear so forgive me. Anyway, Annette of course is one of the scientists developing this drug and of course there is an evil James Bond style agency trying to steal the formula (which, like in all James Bond style films seems to be located on a huge estate, in the country it wishes to destroy and the government of this country is still powerless to destroy it ;). All is fine until the other scientists star getting kidnapped by this sinister organization, named Dragon.
Annette is soon given a hunky young protector but inevitably she too is kidnapped by Dragon and it is up to Mr. Stud to save the day.
B-movie antics aside, China Girl is an almost impossible to hate little cult gem waiting to happen. The dialogue is stilted, the action (meaning kicks, punches, etc. you perverts) is obviously faked, and the sex scenes go on f-o-r-e-v-e-r... The direction and production values are both good and as a whole China Girl is an amusing throw-away romp. This also marks the directorial debuts of husband/wife team Summer Brown and Edwin Brown, there's something for all you history buffs.

SEX:
There are four sex scenes. All are long and boring, but if that's what you're going for, you shouldnít be disappointed.

A/V Quality:
Of course TVX wouldn't bother to transfer this film from a print, so instead we get a bad DVD transfer of a 25 year old video with bad color and sound...SHAME, SHAME, SHAME!

CUTS:
NONE!!!

EXTRAS:
NONE!!!! WHAT A SHOCK...

WHO SHOULD SEE IT:
Hard to say for a movie like this...The plot/acting is of B-movie caliber, so fans of said genre maybe. The sex scenes are way too long, but will satisfy that crowd.

WHO SHOULD SKIP IT:
People who think stories are not needed in movies.

OVERALL:
TVX doesn't know how to release/remaster their films, but they release good ones. This should be seen/bought by classic fans only.
