Operation Mekong’s director returns with new action film

Operation Mekong 湄公河行动 was a critical and commercial hit when it premiered, and this year director Dante Lam has returned with Operation Red Sea 红海行动, another military action film that focuses on members of the Navy, played by Zhang Yi (Brotherhood of Blades II), Huang Jingyu (Demon Girl), Du Jiang (The Wasted Times) and Hai Qing (Midnight Diner).

The film takes inspiration from the evacuation of hundreds of Chinese citizens from Yemen. The same event was adapted for the silver screen in Wu Jing’s record-breaking hit Wolf Warrior 2 战狼, which premiered just a few months ago. Here’s to hoping Operation Red Sea will have equal doses of story and action. The movie is slated to premiere at the end of 2017.
