Director Dante Lam is back once again with his latest big-budget action film “The Rescue”. The impressive trailer for the film promises a high-stakes action film filled with big set-pieces that warrant to be seen on the big screen.
A rescue unit within the Chinese Coast Guard are forced to overcome their personal differences to resolve a crisis.
In addition to China’s most in-demand actor Eddie Peng in the lead role, the film also stars Xin Zhilei (“Crosscurrent“), Wang Yanlin (“Operation Red Sea“), Lan Yingying (“Pacific Rim Uprising”), Xu Yang, Li Mincheng (“A Better Tomorrow 2018“) and Wang Yutian. It releases in China on January 25th, 2020. Whether it is able to replicate the success of Lam’s last film “Operation Red Sea”, which went on to become the 2nd highest grossing film of all time in China last year before falling to 5th spot this year with the advent of “Ne Zha”, “The Wandering Earth” and “Avengers: Endgame”, remains to be seen.
