Movie Review: HELIOS (NC16)
This Asian blockbuster has a star-studded cast including award-winning Hong Kong actor Nick Cheung, K-pop idol Choi Siwon, Hong Kong superstar Jacky Cheung and more.
It centres on Helios, a wanted criminal who has stolen Korea's weapon of mass destruction DC8.
Danger ensues as an underground trading of the weapon takes place in Hong Kong and involves Hong Kong police (Cheung, Shawn Yue), Korean agents (Choi, Ji Jin Hee) and China's envoy.
Fast-paced and action-packed, Helios is exciting and keeps viewers on the edge of their seats from the start. The unexpected plot twist is also a welcome surprise.
However, it concludes abruptly, leaving one dissatisfied and wondering if a sequel is in the works.
