I pity anyone who take this movie seriously
11 March 2018 | by phanthingaSee all my reviews

I might don't know anything about the event in which Operation Mekong based on but what I do know is even when it a propaganda movie that glorify China about how righteous they are for seeking justice for their people by turning a foreign country into a battlefield it still a pretty damn awesome movie to be honest.The characters is likeable and each action set pieces stand out in its own way.The movie is all for a good 2 hours of braindead action so do not take it seriously
