Operation Red Sea

(紅海行動)

 
Synopsis:

Following on from his 2016 blockbuster Operation Mekong, action maestro Dante Lam presents this raw, masterfully-lensed military epic which blasted its way to box office supremacy on its release. Loosely based on the evacuation of hundreds of civilians from the port city of Aden in the midst of Yemen’s 2015 civil war, the ambitious, heart-thumping drama boasts an elite cast including Zhang Yi, Hung Jingyu, Hai Qing and Du Jiang. Grossing over US$550 million to date, Operation Red Sea has secured its place in history as China’s 2ndhighest-grossing movie ever. 

The Chinese Navy’s Jiaolong (“Sea Dragon”) Assault Team is famed for its skill in getting the job done. After its success in rescuing a cargo ship hijacked by pirates off the Somalia coast, the team is assigned an even more perilous mission. A coup in a North African republic has left local Chinese residents in danger, circumstances further complicated by a terrorist plot to obtain nuclear materials. The situation could prove fatal to the hostages and disastrous to the entire region, presenting Jiaolong with a challenge that threatens the very existence of its team and its members.

Synopsis:

“Shuttle Life” is the debut of short film director (Tan Seng Kiat). It realistically portraits the struggles that a poor family faces in a big city. The natural and superb performances of actor Jack Tan (“Show Me Your Love”, 2016) who played the main character Ah Qiang; and actress Sylvia Chang (“Love Education”, 2017) who played the mentally unstable mother deeply touch the hearts of the audiences. The film won the best film, best cinematography and best actor at Asian New Talent Awards which was announced at Shanghai Film Festival.


Ah Qiang (Jack Tan) lives in the big city and struggles to take care of his mentally-unstable mother Li Jun (Sylvia Chang) and his 5-year-old sister, Hui (Angel Chan). Ah Qiang and her sister are not biologically related as Hui was an abandoned child.  Li Jun found her in an alley and adopted her when she was a baby. When a speeding car kills Hui in an accident, Ah Qiang is desperate to claim his sister’s body. Unfortunately, he is not able to prove his relation with Hui as Hui was never registered at birth. Ah Qiang’s mother is no help either given her condition, and Ah Qiang is forced to face this predicament on his own.

A Beautiful Moment

(我的情敵女婿)

 
Synopsis:

Award-winning director Patrick Kong once again entertains with his exuberant romantic comedy released to much fanfare over the Chinese New Year holidays.  Starring Carina Lau (From Vegas to Macau II), Simon Yam (SPL II) and Michelle Wai (77 Heartbreaks), the delightfully witty A Beautiful Moment chronicles the complicated relationship between an ageing playboy, his wife-to-be and her stepmother. A classic Hong Kong production, the laffer is littered with celebrity cameos from some of the entertainment industry’s most recognisable stars.  

Simon (Yam) is a ruthless property tycoon who relishes in bringing his opponents down. He is empowered by a relentless pursuit of greed and regards his nemesis Philip (Keung) as a dimwitted copycat. Flashy and obnoxious, Leung is also a notorious playboy. That’s until he crosses paths with Michelle (Wai) who just happens to save him from a beating by a group of gangsters. Sparked by her refreshing personality and innocent nature, Leung falls for the young woman. 

After only one date, Leung proposes marriage only to discover that Michelle’s psychologist stepmother Bo (Lau) was his first love. When he and Bo eventually meet, the once-lovers pretend not to know one another. But as the wedding day approaches, long-dormant feelings begin to resurface.
