Shawn Yue Puts The Pedal To The Metal In Motorway

Shawn Yue is in the driver's seat for Motorway, the new action thriller from director Soi Cheang, produced by Johnnie To.

Joining Shawn for this thrill ride are Anthony Wong, Guo Xiaodong, Lam Ka-Tung, Barbie Hsu and Josie Ho.

Chin Kar-Lok is handling the action direction and he always delivers the goods whether he is in front of the camera or behind it (or both!)

Sean (Shawn Yue) is an overconfident rookie in the Stealth Riders, a secret police unit consisting of the best drivers in the force that targets underworld racing and fugitives on the run.

Jensen is a legendary escape driver for criminals, who had never been caught before his retirement 15 years ago. When Sean chances upon Jensen out of the blue one day, he thinks his day has finally come.

After a dangerous high speed pursuit, Sean outmaneuvers Jensen and arrests him. While he is gloating over his triumph in the precinct, Jensen pulls off a prison break with another inmate. It seems he let Sean capture him deliberately just to get arrested.

This humiliation draws Sean towards veteran cop Lo (Anthony Wong) who almost died years ago while chasing Jensen. Can the cautious old-timer and the young hotshot finally beat Jensen at his own game?

Motorway opens in Hong Kong on 21 June from Media Asia. Does the trailer set your pulse racing? Check it out below! Plus if your Cantonese is up to speed, there is a 3 minute Making Of to enjoy.
