Red Corner

Richard Gere, always least interesting when cast as a good guy, is an entertainment lawyer on business in the Chinese capital who goes to bed with a model and wakes up next to a corpse; what follows plays like Midnight Express as scripted by Ally McBeal. This is Hitchcock’s old wrong-man plot in a novel setting, but it’s helped immeasurably by Bai Ling’s quietly rich portrayal of Gere’s court-appointed attorney. C+
