Not to be confused with the actress of the same name, Crystal Hunt is a 1991 martial arts motion picture. It was shot in Thailand probably back to back with the 1992 martial arts movie known as Cheetah on Fire. Both fighting feature films featured much the same cast.
Specifically, it stars Donnie Yen, Sibelle Hu, Carrie Ng Ka-lai, Lau Ka-fai, Michael Woods, John Salvitti, Ken Lo Wai-kwong and Fujimi Nadeki. The kung fu film was directed by Tsui Fat. Numerous online movie reviewers report that the motion picture was good because it was a bit different then most martial arts movies of that time.
The movie has an Indiana Jones-like storyline. It focuses on a hunt for a gold crystal with magical healing powers. (Hence the title-duh-Crystal Hunt.)
Each character has a motive. Lisa (played by Carrie Ng) wants the crystal to heal her sick father. Smugglers want it for more monetary motives.
Joyce (portrayed by Fujimi Nadeki) is searching for the crystal because it is a way to find her father the archaeologist who disappeared while hunting for it. Meanwhile, the authorities are also looking for it too in that they are trying to capture the smugglers.
Chi Liang, (played by Donnie Yen) is an ex-cop with issues. He teams up with his old partner (portrayed by Sibelle Hu) to assist his ex-ladyfriend in locating her dad. Michael Woods reportedly became a celebrity in Africa, Asia and Europe just for playing the bad buy here. Also praised for its blend of brutal action and comedy, Crystal Hunt had nothing to do with it.
