If a little more Phillip Ng is what you’ve been wanting these days, then pull up a chair and get a whiff of Well Go USA’s latest Hi-YAH! induction, Undercover Punch & Gun, from directors Lui Koon Nam and Frankie Tam.
While an elite cop is working undercover to infiltrate a notorious drug ring, his plan is compromised when a rival agency with a grudge attacks during a trade, killing the gang’s leader. Their cover blown, both teams are forced to unite and take to the high seas in an attempt to overthrow the ruthless smuggler behind it all.
This one’s taken quite a while to circulate, and for North American genre filmgoers, Hi-YAH! is a perfect landing spot for a title of this kind. The film arrives exclusively on Hi-YAH! from May 7, so you’re not a subscriber yet, I recommend changing that.
The film also arrives on Digital, Blu-ray and DVD beginning June 8!
Undercover Punch & Gun marks another major reunion for Ng and longtime friend and cohort on both sides of the lens, Andy On, since their heyday throwing hands for the distributor’s 2014 release, Once Upon A Time In Shanghai, among a list of their shared credits.
The cast also includes Van Ness Wu (Monk Comes Down the Mountain, Dragon Blade, Ip Man 4: The Finale), Chi Shuai (Be Together, The Voice), Feng Wenjuan a.k.a. Joyce Feng (The Last Tycoon, Helios, Operation Mekong), Aaron Mustapha Aziz a.k.a. Aaron Aziz (KL Gangster, Ombak Rindu, Special Female Force), Meng Jia (The Third Way of Love), Aka Chio (Are you Here, Love Detective, Break Up 100) and Jiang Luxia (Operation Red Sea, Legend of the Naga Pearls).
