Tsui Hark (Detective Dee And The Mystery Of The Phantom Flame) reinterprets Qu Bo's 1957 novel Tracks in the Snowy Forest, which was memorably adapted into an opera during the Cultural Revolution, into a roaring action blockbuster in The Taking of Tiger Mountain! Starring Zhang Hanyu (White Vengeance), Lin Gengxin (Black & White: The Dawn Of Justice), Tony Leung Ka Fai (Rise Of The Legend), Tong Liya (Silent Witness), Yu Nan (No Man's Land), Han Geng (So Young) and others, the epic film was a box office smash, and is currently China's 12th highest-grossing film of all time.

In the midst of the Chinese Civil War, People's Liberation Army Captain Shao Jianbo (Lin Gengxin) is assigned a daunting mission: to retake Tiger Mountain. Once a Japanese stronghold, the mountain is now dominated by a group of vicious bandits led by the fearsome Hawk (Tony Leung Ka Fai). In order to bring down the gang from the inside, Yang Ziyong (Zhang Hanyu) takes on the dangerous task of infiltrating the group.

Adapted from the famous Chinese novel “TRACKS IN THE SNOWY FOREST” set during the civil war era of 1946, when ruthless bandits occupied Northeastern China and threatened the lives of civilians there. The most powerful bandit of all was HAWK (Tony LUNG Ka-fai), with an impenetrable fortres sup in Tiger Mountain and armed with strong artillery. Unit 203 of the Liberation Army, led by CAPTAIN 203 (LIN Gengxin), was crossing the Northeastern region when they encountered Hawk’s men raiding a village. CAPTAIN 203 decided to stay and fight against HAWK. Headquarters sent a skilled investigator YANG (ZHANG Hanyu), who infiltrated HAWK’s gang as an undercover. The duo was soon engaged in a battle of wits with the cold-blooded HAWK, deep inside the snowy forest.
