China O'Brien (1990)

The movie's selling point is that it's from the director of Enter the Dragon (1973) and was produced by Raymond Chow under the Golden Harvest banner. China is the girl next door type but with an ability to topple villains twice her size. When she exchanges the big city for a small town she encounters a squad of unsavoury types in need of a disciplinary ass-kicking.
Cynthia Rothrock is light on her feet, able to effectively deliver the moves required. It's just as well because the plot is old hat, except for that election rally that's just awful. I felt embarrassed for everyone involved.
