Crime Thriller 'Extraordinary Mission' Isn't Extraordinary But It's Entertaining Enough

Another familiar tale of an undercover cop obsessed with taking down a crime boss.


Extraordinary Mission (NC16) 

Starring Huang Xuan, Duan Yihong

Directed by Alan Mak & Anthony Pun

Alan Mak revisits the familiar themes of Infernal Affairs in this explosive thriller starring Huang Xuan (looking like a young Tony Leung Chiu-wai from some angles) as an undercover cop obsessed with busting a Golden Triangle heroin cartel headed by a Chinese Pablo Escobar (Duan Yihong).

What stands out is the 20-plus-minute climactic Heat-meets-Black Hawk Down shoot-out. (3 stars)
