A few days ago, we reported that Hong Kong superstar Andy Lau went into hospital after suffering from multiple pelvic fractures. The estimated recovery time of 6-9 months would make it difficult for the actor to promote his upcoming films, one of which being the big-budget action thriller ‘Shock Wave’.
‘Shock Wave’ is directed by Herman Yau (‘The Untold Story’, ‘Turning Point’, ‘The Legend Is Born: Ip Man’). Lau is both the star and producer of the film and the supporting cast includes Jiang Wu (‘Monster Hunt’), Philip Keung (‘Unbeatable’), Ron Ng (‘Turning Point’), Louis Cheung (‘Keeper Of Darkness’) and Babyjohn Choi (‘Ip Man 3’).
Synopsis (via Wikipedia): Cheung Choi-san is a senior inspector of the Explosive Ordnance Disposal Bureau (EOD). Seven years ago, he went undercover and became the protégé of Hung Kai-pang, a top wanted criminal specializing in bombs. Cheung successfully disintegrated Hung’s criminal gang, but during the operation, Hung manages to escape while his younger brother and allies were captured. To seek revenge for Cheung’s betrayal, Hung comes back seven years later and prepares to plant a series bombs in Hong Kong, which creates public panic, and lures Cheung out for action to unfold an ultimate plan for revenge.
