China Rose (1983)

A Minnesota businessman (George C. Scott) travels to China in search of his son (Michael Biehn, THE TERMINATOR) who went missing during the Cultural Revolution in communist China. With the assistance of his translator and guide (Ali MacGraw), he tries to unravel the truth behind his son's disappearance. A standard mystery/adventure with few (if any) surprises, this made for television movie (though apparently it was released theatrically overseas) is harmless fodder. The Hong Kong and Macau locations bring a flavor of authenticity as well as color to the proceedings while Scott and MacGraw make for an unlikely coupling. Directed by Robert Day. With James Hong, Denis Lill and David Snell.
