PLANO, TEXAS. (April 24, 2017) – “… for action film buffs, Christmas has come early” (Edmund Lee, South China Morning Post) when members of an international task force seek justice against the leader of an Asian drug cartel and his murderous henchmen in the action-packed thriller OPERATION MEKONG. Inspired by a true story, acclaimed Hong Kong filmmaker Dante Lam (Stool Pigeon, Unbeatable) brings his “shoot first, ask questions later” cinematic approach to this violent crime thriller, which stars Zhang Hanyu (The Taking of Tiger Mountain), Eddie Peng (Tai Chi Hero), Chen Baoguo (Moment in Peking), Sun Chun (1911), Feng Wenjuan (Helios), Wu Xudong (The Taking of Tiger Mountain) and Carl Ng (The Viral Factor). Bonus materials include the 6-part “Making-of” featurette that illustrates the craft that went into making the film. OPERATION MEKONG blasts onto digital May 2 and explodes on Blu-ray™/DVD Combo Pack and DVD June 6 from Well Go USA Entertainment.

When it’s discovered the drugs seized from the ships had been planted by a notorious drug cartel, a multi-country joint task force is assembled to stop the criminals. The road to justice is, however, paved with dangerous and deadly obstacles.
