Moviegoers who believe that the most spectacular blockbusters are only produced in Hollywood should think again. Be prepared to watch the loudest, most action-packed, and adrenaline pumping film in living history as this Chinese film crashes into cinemas!
Directed by Hong Kong’s most successful director Dante Lam, production costs on this blockbuster reportedly exceeded US$100 million making it one of the most expensive Chinese films ever produced, and every penny translates on screen.
This film explores the professional and personal lives of the men and women who risk their lives daily working as Chinese Coast Guards.
There’s no time for boredom as the team gets into action even before the opening credits start rolling. Oil rig explosions, passenger jet crashes and oil tankers on fire, this good-looking and likable team of Chinese coast guards portrayed by China’s crème de la crème A-list actors will stop at nothing to save lives as critical incidents occur.
Periodic relief from the death-defying action sequences traverses to the team’s personal lives – the laughter, the good times, and the tragedies that befall them.
At a running time of nearly 2.5 hours, this jaw-dropping CGI extravaganza will leave audiences stunned and wishing there was more. Fingers crossed that several sequels transpire. (MMo)
