Made in Chinatown Movie (2021)

It’s Goodfellas meets Ip Man when a young Chinese nobody sets out to become a “made guy” in the Italian Mafia. Tensions are already high between the two communities as they move into each other’s turf with a dirty crime commissioner playing both sides. It turns out that earning respect, finding love, and discovering his identity doesn’t come so easy. He’ll have to fight his way to the top. 

The Chinatown-meets-Little-Italy comedy sensitively handles, with more commentary than spoof, the timely Asian immigrant experience, as well as racial stereotyping and labeling. With some of the most recognizable actors known for portraying mafiosos, and the talents of veritable Hong Kong Kung-Fu masters, protagonist Vinny Chow (portrayed by Jay Kwon) finds himself unwittingly caught up in two love stories – his Chinese culture and the Italian culture he emulates based on The Godfather and Goodfellas, and his fantasy [Italian] dream date and the perfect [Chinese] girl next door. The fast-paced romp features several real Kung-Fu Masters (Lo Meng, Chiu Chi Ling, Peter Ngai, Steven Chan, Paul Sun), is choreographed by Emmy Award® winner James Lew, and a treasure trove of hidden mob movie references and quotes to delight cinephiles.
