Director: Dante Lam

Cast: Zhang Yi, Huang Jingyu, Du Jiang 

Genre: War, Action 

The film tells the story of a rescue mission by an eight-member team from the Chinese Navy's elite special forces to help Chinese and foreign nationals out of a war. The team meanwhile foiled a terrorist plot to obtain nuclear materials to make bombs. 

The film is loosely based on the evacuation of Chinese citizens and foreign nationals from Yemen's capital and the southern port of Aden during Yemen's civil war in late March 2015. 

Film Review: As the second-highest-grossing film ever in China, Operation Red Sea marks another milestone in China's film industry, proving that good stories never get old.
