As the release of Tony Jaa’s (Furious 7) first foray into Hong Kong action cinema draws near (June 18th, in China), a new trio of posters have been released. Unlike the last poster for SPL 2: A Time for Consequences, these new ones don’t even bother to hint at the story’s emotional core (a father fighting to save his dying daughter) and instead go with a more clenched fists and scowling faces look.
Undercover cop Kit (Wu Jing) becomes a junkie in order to catch Mr Hung (Louis Koo), the mastermind behind a crime syndicate. When the operation goes sour and Kit blows his cover, his supervisor and uncle Wah (Simon Yam) decides to terminate the operation. When Kit disappears without a trace, Wah defies the order from his commanding officer and tracks Kit to a prison in Thailand.Thai Police officer Chai (Tony Jaa) becomes a prison guard in order to raise money for his daughter who has leukemia. He’s assigned to keep an eye on Kit. Even though Chai and Kit are in opposing positions and they don’t speak a common language, Kit turns out to be a suitable bone marrow donor who can save Chai’s daughter. While Chai is determined to keep Kit alive, the warden (Zhang Jin) wants him dead to ensure the smooth operation of the prison, which is the front for Mr Hung’s organ trafficking business.
Mr Hung shows up in Thailand so he can use his younger brother’s (Jun Kung) heart in a heart transplant to save his own life. The stage is set for a showdown…
Have a look at the posters, featuring Jaa and the other stars including Simon Yam, Wu Jing, and the incredibly creepy Louis Koo.
