US lawyer Jack Moore is in Beijing to make a successful business trip to his company to complete a film and television distribution deal with the Chinese government. The main competitor for this distribution contract is HoffCo Telecom from Germany. Before Jack's boss David McAndrews and the Chinese government sign the contract, Jack is involved in a murder, the victim who was discovered in his hotel room. The police were alerted to an incident in his hotel room, based on hearing a scream from his room that Jack, who slept in the room when the police entered, did not hear. Jack, who is charged with murder, lifts the distribution contract, which will be awarded to HoffCo instead. The situation for Jack is exacerbated by the well-known connections between the victim and people in high positions in China, who may be trying to manipulate the situation to see Jack convicted of murder. Jack also has linguistic, cultural and political obstacles to overcome, the Chinese government and thus the court system, which has apparently already condemned him to make him, a foreigner, as a role model. For this reason, Jack does not trust his court-appointed lawyer, a young woman named Shen Yuelin, who has always seen her role in implementing Chinese government policy. Things can change when Yuelin starts believing that Jack is being held responsible for the murder, the death of an innocent man she may not be able to tolerate if she has influence on the Chinese justice system, which she may not find. The key to discovering the truth behind the murder, the reason Jack is blamed for it and possibly leaving Jack behind the other end of his life, is an important physical evidence that he knows he exists, but that too seems missing.
Red Corner is one of my favorite movies directed by Jon Avnet. Red Corner is little different than other movies made in hollywood, but you will not regret watching it online. Red Corner has everything what makes any new movie a good movie. Actors play and the music make a lot of scenes in this movie really unforgetable. Jon Avnet directed Red Corner in 1997. After you watch whole movie, you can also find other movies directed by the same person by clicking the director name.
