Inspired by true events and starring one of Asia’s top rising action stars Eddie Peng (Call of Heroes, Rise of The Legend) and Hanyu Zhang (Assembly, The Great Wall), Elite Force: Operation Mekong pays tribute to 80’s classics like Rambo with an assaultive two hours of adrenaline-pumped action.

Following a sudden international crisis when Chinese commercial vessels are ambushed on the Mekong River, an elite team of narcotic officers are dispatched to the Golden Triangle region, on evidence the attack resulted from a notorious drug cartel operating in the area. Led by Captain Gao Gang (Zhang Hanyu), who partners with intelligence officer and undercover specialist Fang Xinwu (Eddie Peng), this team embarks on a death-defying mission to bring the ultimate takedown of a ruthless drug lord. With ferocious action direction from Tung Wai (Bodyguards and Assassins, Saving General Yang), Operation Mekong is an explosive tale of comradeship and conquest.
