THROWING YOU RIGHT INTO THE MIDDLE of the explosive action from the start, Invisible Target grips you instantly and leaves you wondering how it can get better. And it does.

After his fiancé is killed as a security truck explodes outside the jewellers where she is choosing their wedding rings, seasoned cop Chan Chun (Nicholas Tse: The Promise) crosses the line. The ruthless, cold-blooded gang of criminals responsible have escaped with $100 million and will kill anyone who gets in their way, regardless of who they are. A devastated Chan Chun is out for revenge — and he doesn't care what he has to do to get it.

By contrast, gentle rookie police officer Wai King Ho (Jaycee Chan, son of Jackie) does everything by the book. He is determined to follow in his older brother's footsteps and become a great cop. But Wai King-Tat has disappeared while working undercover amid rumours that he has joined the gang he had infiltrated.

Everything is about to change in Wai King Ho's mundane life and he finds himself embroiled in a perilous assignment where his life, and those of his colleagues, hangs in the balance. Determined to clear his brother's name, he seeks to find the truth.

Along with Chan Chun and his friend, Inspector Carson Fong Yik Wei (Shawn Yue: Infernal Affairs), Ho is prepared to risk his life to put an end to Hong Kong's most deadly mercenary gang, led by the cold-blooded killer Ten Yeng Seng (Kung Fu impresario Wu Jing: The Mummy; Tomb Of The Dragon Emperor; Kill Zone).

As the city explodes, the peacekeepers are plunged into a deadly war zone. The body count rises among both civilians and police officers and a no-holds-barred battle for survival, justice and revenge forces the three cops to forget the rule book, setting aside their own personal vendettas in order to end the bloodshed.

Pitted against criminals highly-skilled in martial arts and who know no bounds, the police officers have to find the arms dealer who has supplied the gang and track down its members in order to prevent a large-scale catastrophe where many civilians could be killed — including a busload of small children. And the clock is ticking…

Amazing fight scenes with free-running sequences and incredible stunts, Invisible Target is an astonishing movie, big on action and high on the attention-holding scale.

Showcasing the formidable talents of the next generation of martial arts superstars, Invisible Target is an incredible new-wave action spectacular from visionary director Benny Chan (New Police Story) and also features: Andy On as Ronin Tien Yeng-Yee; Elanne Kwong as Leung Hoi Lam; Mark Cheng as Senior Superintendent Mark Law Pui Keung; Sam Lee as Ho Wing Keung; Vincent Sze as Tien Yeng Chi; Deep Ng as Gangster Terry; Philip Ng as Tiger; Candy Lui as Ho Ka Yee; Ken Lo as Wong Kam Ming; Suet Lam as Loan Shark Cheng and Mei Wng Xue as Tien Yeng Yan.
