Movie Info

Following up on his two-fisted Hong Kong action thriller Full Contact, ace director Ringo Lam spins this hard-boiled revenge drama. After the murder of his parents and only sister at the hands of the villianous gun-running billionaire Ray Lui (Paul Chun Pui) in 1975, crack jet pilot Yan (Andy Lau Ling-tung) vows revenge. Pairing up with Shang (David Chiang Da-wei) -- a Cambodian born CIA operative -- Yan ventures to Thailand, where he soon becomes romantically entangled with Liu's mistress Mona (Rosamund Kwan). Afterwards, events send him to San Francisco where he falls for Liu's beautiful, innocent daughter Crystal (Jacqueline We). Soon Yan finds himself included in Liu inner circle, accompanying the gangster to the secret hideout of a Cambodian autocrat. Yan places a beacon in the dictator's bunker so that the CIA can locate and destroy it with a surprise air strike.

Audience Reviews for The Adventurers

A solid and big-scale Hong Kong action from Ringo Lam. The title totally does not fit to the content, though. Among the three top Hong Kong action directors of that time, Hark Tsui, John Woo, and Lam, Lam probably has the least originality in style, but I like the theme that Lam always deals with - the chain of vengeance. This film is the best of his in terms of clarity of that theme. Casts are all good, but especially the two actresses, Rosamund Kwan, who probably plays the first and only bitch-role, and Chien-lien Wu, who perfectly sustains the difficult role, are great. These big films which the "big-three" made (they tend to set in Sounth-east Asia, interestingly) in 90s are as big in scale and entertaining as contemporary Hollywood films.

Andy Lau makes the dazzling action sequences by protecting her hostage / lover from the gangsters.
