Two Chinese commercial vessels are ambushed while traveling down the Mekong River in the waters of the Golden Triangle, one of the largest drug-manufacturing regions in the world. 13 sailors are executed at gunpoint, and 900,000 methamphetamine pills are recovered at the scene. Upon discovery, the Chinese government immediately sends a band of elite narcotics officers led by Captain Gao Gang to the Golden Triangle to uncover the truth behind the murders. Tea field owner and Golden Triangle-based intelligence officer Fang Xin Wu joins the investigation. After it was discovered that the drugs seized on the Chinese ships had been planted by the henchman of a notorious drug cartel leader named Naw Kham, the governments of Thailand, Laos, Myanmar and China launched a joint task force to apprehend the criminal. The road to justice is, however, paved with dangerous and deadly obstacles... ~~ Inspired by the true story known as the Mekong Massacre Edit Translation

Wow, this was a very interesting movie because some parts is in different languages. I thought the plot was interesting and when I found out it was based on a true event, I was even more surprised!  As mentioned above in the synopsis, the story is based on a group of narcotic agents from China trying to take down a druglord from SE Asia. Their mission pushes them to go undercover, to track down these elusive drug dealers.

The action scenes pretty much make up this entire movie. It's very action packed with guns, explosions, and stunts. 

The acting in this drama is pretty good. I also liked how diverse the cast is. I pretty much watched this for Eddie Peng (lol). His role was very diverse, where he switched between chinese and english. He also had funny costume changes. Besides him, I loved the dog that was also an agent.

I watched Operation Mekong during my flight back to home as it was pretty much the only Asian show I didn't watch and did contain subtitles. It is a film about a Chinese operation together with Thailand, Myanmar and Laos to clean up a certain gang which is very active within the Golden Triangle to illegally transport drugs accross borders (although you will only see the Chinese point of view)

The series was a bit basic, though there was plenty of action for those who prefer that. I would have preferred if characters were a bit more described, though the film did have some good features in it too as their own soldiers were vulnerable to enemy bullets too. Actors spoke in their language too, so it was not uncommon to hear thai, lao or burmese.

Overal it was an ok movie if you are bored, however do not expect a great piece of filming.
