Hung (Pauline Chan), a mainland girl, has been married to Hanky (Jamie Luk) by her parents, even though she was madly in love with Sam (Alex Fong). But Hanky offered the better prospects, like he was able to take her to Hong Kong - where he promptly sold her to a whorehouse. Now Hung, together with her friend Ann (Rena Murakami), works for Madame Suzie (Pak Yan) until her debt is paid off, after which she hopes to reunite with Sam. She has remained in touch with Sam all the while, but neglected to tell him she's a hooker, naturally.

Sam can't wait to reunite with Hung, so he takes his friends (Tony Tam, Wang Seung-Lam) on on an offer to go to Hong Kong for a quick job - little does he know that the quick job is robbing a jewellery store, a crime set up by the storeowner's son Billy (Billy Chow) as part of an insurance scam. Of course, something goes wrong during the heist, and someone gets killed, and now Billy figures it would be tghe best idea to kill Sam and friends, and while Sam's friends end up poisoned soon enough, Sam manages to get away, and since he has no other place to go, he pays a visit to the address on the letters Hung sends him time and again, where he only gradually comes to the realization she is a hooker - much to his dismay of course, but he just cannot stop loving her.

Billy and friends are not exactly stupid, so it doesn't take them long to track down Hung as well, and she and Sam only just manage to escape from their clutches, while Ann and Madame Suzie get killed.

Hung has the less than great idea to ask her treacherous husband Hanky, a smuggler, for help, and he agrees to smuggle her and Sam back to mainland China, but of course lures them into a trap and so Hung and Sam has to fight it out with Billy and his men on a construction site, a fight only Sam survives - to be arrested for both the heist and the bloodbath.


What can I say, for the most part, Escape from Brothel is as sleazy as you'd expect it to bejudging from the title, there is much nudity and sex, coupled with a prostitution-themed plot. Unfortunately, for the most part, the film doesn't really fall together, seems rather incoherent in storytelling, and several scenes in here have no connection to the main plot whatsoever. Ironically, it's only in the action sequence in the finale, which is neither sleazy nor does it contain any nudity, that the film comes into its own, as this sequence is excitingly filmed and edited, features some well-executed stunts, and would be a worthy climax for any film. Too bad the rest of the movie is not like this ...
