Director Cui Siwei – screenwriter of Huang Bo’s The Island and Leo Zhang’s Jackie Chan sci-fi, Bleeding Steel – stirred a fair bit of attention with his latest scintillating and brutal heist thriller, Savage, after screening in Busan last year. It’s getting an April 26 release in China and for this, it’s got a great official trailer packed with chilling, pulsating neo-western flair to boot.
Mt. Baekdu, heavy with snow in the middle of winter. It is said that many ethnic Koreans still live near the snow-covered mountain. A policeman waiting for his transfer and a group of criminals trying to escape from the area after finding stolen goods that were hidden will have a final showdown on the isolated peak.
Starring are Chang Chen, Ni Ni and Liao Fan for its cast. Stay tuned!
