And that’s precisely what I’m in the market for: something loud, stupid, and totally mindless. A good, coherent script is entirely optional. Below you’ll find the latest trailer for director Dante Lam’s sci-fi actioner “The Viral Factor”, which looks to be an absolute blast. As a big fan of both gunplay and explosions, I fully endorse the viewing of this trailer. The “good brother vs. bad brother” scenario might be a bit played out, yes, but this one features both Nicholas Tse and Jay Chou, not to mentions explosions. And gunplay. It promises to be good stuff.
Before checking out the trailer, familiarize yourself with the plot:
A mission to escort a witness from Jordan to the Netherlands leaves International Security Affairs agent Jon severely scarred: a bullet is lodged in his brain, his fiancée and fellow agent Rita is dead and their traitorous colleague Sean has nabbed their witness. While contemplating leaving the force, he finds out that his father and brother, Wan Yang, are still alive. In his search for them, he discovers that his brother is working as a mercenary for Sean, who has evil plans to force scientist Rachel to cultivate a mutating virus to unleash on the world. The brothers unite to stop Sean but finds out that he has an even bigger plan for international blackmail. The battle heads to a showdown in Hong Kong where Sean has decided to release the strain of deadly virus.
Although I’m not overly familiar with Dante Lam’s filmography, I did enjoy “The Stool Pigeon” quite a bit, so I’m anxious to see how “The Viral Factor” plays out. The trailer, as well as a pair of posters, have been embedded below. This one is set to hit in 2012.
