A star-studded cast from mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and South Korea — including Jacky Cheung, Nick Cheung, Zhang Zhen, Wang Xueqi, Ji Jin-hee and Choi Siwon — assemble for a battle of acting skills, topped off with swooping performances by up-and-coming actresses Janice Man, Feng Wenjuan and Yoon Ji Ni. Helios is set to dizzy the global audience with its captivating story and eye-popping visuals.

Synopsis
Helios, a most wanted criminal in the global radar, has stolen the South Korean military’s latest mass destruction weapon: a handheld nuclear device DC8 and 16 uranium spheres. An underground trading of the stolen weapon is due to take place in Hong Kong.

Chinese envoy Song An, Hong Kong’s Counter Terrorism Response Unit Chief Inspector Lee Yin-ming and South Korean weapon expert Choi Min Ho are all gathered in Hong Kong on a mission to recover the weapon. Physics professor Siu Chi-yan joins the team as consultant.

Beneath the shared goal of recovering the weapon, the three regions’ representatives are all armed with hidden agendas. Choi not only has to capture Helios and recover the weapon but needs to prevent the leaking of national classified information. Song has China’s interests in mind. And on top of resolving the unit’s biggest crisis since its conception, Lee and Siu have to grapple with the tension between the two countries.

Although the Hong Kong police manage to capture Helios’s assistant and recover the weapon, a diplomatic dispute between China and South Korea on who owns the confiscated nuclear device is unleashed. Meanwhile, Helios pops up in Macau, determined to reclaim the weapon and avenge his earlier defeat.

In the final showdown, no one is safe from the danger and conspiracies that lurk underneath.

In Helios, we see the appearances of Korean stars like Ji Jin Hee and Choi Si Won. This movie being Ji Jin Hee’s second collaboration with Jacky Cheung, means a lot to him and was “filled with surprises”, said the actor.

On working with the directors, Ji Jin Hee says: “I had once thought that there would be no more serious Hong Kong-style criminal thrillers, but the directors’ previous film Cold War is exactly that, harking back to Hong Kong movies’ golden era. Helios not only gathers actors from across the regions, the story holds you captive from the get go. I am very excited.”

On the other hand and not forgetting the Super Junior member, Choi Siwon performs many dangerous stunts in Helios. His high-speed motorcycle chase in Canton Road, Tsim Sha Tsui is the highlight of the movie. He is thrilled to be part of a Hong Kong-style action production, “The shooting was very fun, because of Jacky Cheung, who made shooting seem like a musical concert every day. I really look forward to Helios.”
