Jesuits Under Fire in the Siege of Hong Kong, 1941 by Thomas F. Ryan

Like many movies associated with Wong Jing, it's kind of hard to pinpoint what exactly Hong Kong on Fire is attempting to do. At times, it's a light romantic comedy, but in others, it's some of the sleaziest exploitation action this reviewer has ever seen. Usually, for some inexplicable reason, Wong's movies can usually pull this kind of schizophrenia off, but Hong Kong on Fire is ultimately let down by a lackluster script and poor direction. The movie begins with an interesting approach, using interviews and newsreel footage to set up the story, but this more serious, documentary-like approach is let down by some very dopey comedy. In fact, the first half-hour or so is much more of a family "dramedy" rather than the usual blood and boobs one expects from Wong Jing.
A family suffers at the hands of the Japanese during the occupation of Hong Kong.
