Black Mask Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Martial arts star [[Performer~P42291~Jet Li~jetli]] donned a black hat and mask to portray a comic book superhero in this pulp action tale that gets the full-blown Hong Kong treatment from choreographer [[Performer~P194746~Yuen Wo Ping~yuenwooping]], who later designed the fight scenes for [[Feature~V177524~The Matrix~thematrix]] (1999). [[Performer~P42291~Li~jetli]] stars as Tsui Chik, leader of Squad 701, an elite commando team of genetically-engineered super-soldiers. When the unit was deemed a failure because of mental instability in some of the test subjects, the project was disbanded. Tsui now lives quietly in Hong Kong, masquerading as a shy librarian whose only friend is a cop ([[Performer~P223308~Lau Ching Wan~lauchingwan]]). When some drug lords begin turning up dead, Tsui dons a black mask and hat to investigate the slayings and learns that his former Squad 701 comrades, led by psychotic Commander Hung ([[Performer~P228551~Patrick Lung~patricklung]]), are plotting to take over the drug kingpin's illegal trade. Among their number is Tsui's ex-girlfriend Kaelin ([[Performer~P223713~Francoise Yip~françoiseyip]]). ~ Karl Williams, Rovi
