Elite Force: Operation Mekong on UK DVD 17 July

Hotly anticipated, Cine Asia is thrilled to present its next release – Dante Lam’s action extravaganza, Elite Force: Operation Mekong. The film is one of China’s all-time highest grossing films (over $170m) and won Best Action Choreography at the Hong Kong Film Awards 2017.

Inspired by true events and starring one of Asia’s top rising action stars Eddie Peng (Call of Heroes, Rise of The Legend) and Hanyu Zhang (Assembly, The Great Wall), Elite Force: Operation Mekong pays tribute to 80’s classics like Rambo with an assaultive two hours of adrenaline-pumped action.
 
Synopsis: Following a sudden international crisis when Chinese commercial vessels are ambushed on the Mekong River, an elite team of narcotic officers are dispatched to the Golden Triangle region, on evidence the attack resulted from a notorious drug cartel operating in the area. Led by Captain Gao Gang (Zhang Hanyu), who partners with intelligence officer and undercover specialist Fang Xinwu (Eddie Peng), this team embarks on a death-defying mission to bring the ultimate takedown of a ruthless drug lord. With ferocious action direction from Tung Wai (Bodyguards and Assassins, Saving General Yang), Operation Mekong is an explosive tale of comradeship and conquest.

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it's a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone.
