In 1938, during the second Sino-Japanese War, Mu Lian Feng, a 19-year-old orphan, and avid hunter, rescues the pilot of an American military plane that crashes in the forest. He takes the pilot to his village, where Liu Yan has transformed her tea shop into a makeshift hospital. As the pilot gradually recuperates, the friendship between the three slowly grows. However, when Lianfeng defends Liu Yan against soldiers of the Nationalist army, commander Wu arrests both of them and transports them towards his camp. On their way to the base, their convoy is attacked by a Japanese sniper who is eventually neutralized by Lian Feng. Impressed, squad leader Zhang Meng Zi selects him to take part in an assassination mission targeting four Japanese generals and their Chinese interpreters. However, nothing goes as planned, which infuriates Japanese general Massaya and prompts him to send out his best sharpshooters to take down every last one of them. ~~ Based on a popular internet novel.

Cast & Credits
Peter Ho is magnetic .... Loved the "maniacal" Japanese Colonel Masaya played by Wilson Guo Mingxiang ....
... At the climax, although the action scenes are thrilling, I felt the plot got a bit weak.
.... The script felt like a compilation of one liners - mostly adages and aphorisms - mainly delivered by the veterans like Tony Leung's no-nonsense Mengzi or Mickey He's friendly Xiao Wu , and often repeated by Peter Ho's unworldly Liangfeng ... It offered up some comedic relief .....
Lots of thrilling fun visually! But , due to the lack of an equally thrilling plot at the end, and the lack of a better script ---> the film fails to make a psychological impact ... ...
The action deserves a rating of 8 or 9 at least...
I recommend it for action lovers ... and even for non-action lovers like myself (I was impressed).
