Synopsis

From Beijing with Love movie scenes

Golden Gun steals the cranium of China's only dinosaur fossil. Chow, starring as a hawker-secret-agent 007, is sent to Hong Kong by a high-ranking government official to recapture the cranium. When he arrives in Hong Kong, he meets Lee Heung-kam (Anita Yuen), who proposes to help him in his endeavor. However, Heung-kam turns out to be a subordinate of Golden Gun. Golden Gun is in actuality the government official who directs 007 to find the cranium.

Golden Gun instructs Heung-kam to send 007 on a false lead and tells him that the cranium may have been stolen by a smuggler. 007, with the help of Heung-kam, sneaks into a cocktail party held by the smuggler. Before he enters, he tells Heung-kam that he will fetch her some white roses. Heung-kam tells 007 to find evidence that the smuggler stole the cranium; meanwhile, Heung-kam hides in a tree, planning to snipe 007 from afar. The party is interrupted by a mysterious man (modeled after Jaws from James Bond) and a mysterious woman who are out to kill 007. Taking this opportunity, Heung-kam shoots 007 several times, including once in the leg with 007 thinking another assassin has shot him. 007 (who is wearing a bulletproof vest but not bulletproof trousers) escapes, grabbing three white roses on the way out. Heung-kam is touched by this gesture and saves his life. She decides to defect from Golden Gun. Together, the two destroy the organization that is behind the theft of the cranium. 007 eventually wins the hand of Heung-kam and is rewarded with a meat cleaver emblazoned with the calligraphy of Deng Xiaoping.

  • The name of the film in Chinese, Gwok chaan Ling Ling Chat (國產凌凌漆), means "the domestically-produced 007". 凌凌漆 is a homophone for the number "007" in Chinese.
  • The name of the "ultimate weapon" invented by Tat Man-sai, 要你命3000 (Lifetaker 3000), is also the name of a Hong Kong, low-budget blue movie.
  • The Universe Laser DVD cover (pictured on right) of the movie parodies that of the 1987 James Bond movie The Living Daylights.
  • The Golden Gun's signature weapon is a spoof of the golden gun used in the James Bond novel The Man with the Golden Gun. Unlike the one from the James Bond series, this is a gold-plated Thompson/Center Contender with extremely powerful expanding bullets of piercing or explosive force.
