User Reviews

A wonderful Chinese theme movie adapted from real events.
15 July 2020 | by xuefeiding-92364See all my reviews

The real incident is very cruel. 13 Chinese compatriots were killed innocently and cruelly. Under the leadership of China's police, Myanmar and other multi-national police have been united to arrest the real murderer, and justice has been done for the dead compatriots. On this basis, director Lin Chaoxian adapted his works. Our police and drug dealers fight bravely, even unavoidable sacrifice, in order to get justice!
