Not at the top of his game
21 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A vaguely-defined Asian terrorist organization highjacks a Taiwan airliner and lands it on the Chinese mainland. As the plane sits on the ground and the hijackers make their demands, the Beijing and Taibei governments must work together to rescue the hostages.

Every great director comes up with a clunker now and then, and this is Zhang's. This is a routine action thriller with lots of Western-style violence and gore, and probably the only reason Zhang made it was to deliver its political message of the desirability of mainland-Taiwan cooperation and eventual reunification. The only justification I can see for this film was to appease the Chinese government, which was even then looking over his shoulder. In any event, this is certainly the most forgettable film Zhang every made and while it earned a Best Supporting Actress award in China for Li Gong, it has little else to recommend it.
