"“HELIOS” (2015) HONG KONG Movie Review

. A Regional Cast adds more Bang for your Buck.

“HELIOS” (2015) HONG KONG Movie Review

HELIOS is an adrenaline-fuelled and action packed crime thriller that will have you on edge.

The joint directors are Longman Leung and Sunny Luk who gave us their recent much-acclaimed Cold War.

No, this is not a successor to Cold War as many followers were led to believe. The former film still work better in terms of plot and solidarity.

HELIOS (2015) finale comes smack with a cliffhanger that hints that there’s more to come with another thrilling chapter. And a brand new cast of course, since the principal actors all perished in the line of duty.

The big-time bonus is an offering of regional famous names added to the actor list, so you’d certainly get more bang for your buck.

Genre : Action crime thriller

Running Time : 118 minutes

Director-writer : Longman Leung & Sunny Luk

Cast : Jacky Cheung, Nick Cheung, Choi Siwon, Shawn Yue, Wang Xueqi, Janice Man, Chang Chen, Ji Jin-hee.

Number one wanted criminal “Helios” ( Chang Chen) and his assistant ( Janice Man) stole a quantity of uranium and plan to produce weapons of mass destruction. They are planning to trade with a terrorist organization in Hong Kong. Chief Inspector Lee Yin-ming ( Nick Cheung) and Inspector Fan Ka-ming ( Shawn Yue) lead the Counter Terrorism Response Unit of the Hong Kong Police Force. Along with Chinese senior official Song An ( Wang Xueqi),  Physicsprofessor Siu Chi-yan ( Jacky Cheung) and two South Korean weapon experts Choi Min-ho ( Ji Jin-hee) and Pok Yu-chit ( Choi Siwon), they hope to defuse a crisis sufficient to destroy the world.

With a colossal production budget of USD 20.68 million, this one is a masterly work of true depth.

Don’t miss it!
