Vinegar Syndrome specializes in the masterful restoration and distribution of cult, horror, and erotic films from the 1960s-90s.
During the 1980s, Cynthia Rothrock was making a name for herself as "The Queen of Martial Arts" after displaying her fighting talents in numerous Hong Kong films. Still virtually unknown in the States at the time, Golden Harvest Studios wanted to expand Rothrock's fame by having her appear in an American production. Tapping Robert Clouse (Enter the Dragon) to direct, CHINA O'BRIEN and its sequel CHINA O'BRIEN II brought Rockrock's hard-hitting martial arts style to Western audiences for the first time.
CHINA O'BRIEN: Lori "China" O'Brien is a tough as nails big city cop. After having to use her weapon in the line of duty, China decides to give up her career as a police officer and move back to her hometown of Beaver Creek, Utah. Upon returning home, China discovers that her once-quiet town is now being overrun by corruption and organized crime. When China's father - the local Sheriff - is killed, China vows to run for Sheriff herself in order to rid the town of corruption. With the help of her former boyfriend Matt, as well as a mysterious Native American biker named Dakota, China quickly goes into action cleaning up the streets of the town she once loved.
CHINA O'BRIEN II: China is forced back into action when her quiet town is once again ravaged by violence. Former drug dealer, Charlie Baskin, escapes from prison and sets his sights on those who helped get him arrested. Wrangling a team of criminals, Baskin arrives in Beaver Creek in order to take revenge on a man named Frank who helped put him away. When Baskin kidnaps Frank's wife and daughter, China must once again team up with Matt and Dakota in order to rid the town of criminal lowlifes and protect the innocent.
Co-starring frequent Rothrock collaborator Richard Norton (Mr. Nice Guy), as well as martial artist Keith Cooke (Mortal Kombat), Vinegar Syndrome is proud to present CHINA O'BRIEN and CHINA O'BRIEN II for the first time in the United States on 4K UHD, newly restored from studio-supplied masters and featuring all the bone-breaking action one can expect from Cynthia Rothrock.
