Infernal Affairs and Overheard director Alan Mak and writer Felix Chong bring more intense undercover action in the crime thriller Extraordinary Mission. Known more for art films, Huang Xuan (Blind Massage, The Golden Era) buffed up to take the leading role of a broody, lethal undercover agent embedded in a Golden Triangle drug cartel. Co-starring Duan Yihong (Dead End), Zu Feng (Coming Home) and Lan Yueting (Office), Extraordinary Mission lays out a dangerous battle of wits that explodes into adrenaline-rushing wall-to-wall action.
Officer Lin Kai (Huang Xuan) gets sent undercover into a drug trafficking ring by his superior Li Jianguo (Zu Feng) and quickly works his way up to become the boss's right-hand man. Due to a botched sting, Lin Kai ends up on the run and enters the Thailand jungle base of the Twin Eagles drug cartel, headed by the notorious Eagle (Duan Yihong). He puts everything on the line to gain Eagle's trust and infiltrate the cartel while fighting his own drug addiction and inner demons. As he gains position in the cartel, Lin learns that Eagle is seeking revenge against Li, who was an undercover in Eagle's inner circle ten years ago.
