China's deadliest special forces operative settles into a quiet life on the sea. When sadistic mercenaries begin targeting nearby civilians, he must leave his newfound peace behind and return to his duties as a soldier and protector.
Leng Feng (acted by Jing Wu), a former soldier being discharged from the Chinese Army for his fierce action - having killed a real estate company boss in town, was wandering for his life in Africa, serving as a mercenary providing security to passengers abroad. No matter how badly off Feng was, someone was still in his mind: Long Xiaoyun, Feng's fiancee, who had been kidnapped and lost contact with him for three years.

A pretty good movie given the quality of most Chinese movies. Great efforts are put into producing exciting and vivid scenes of shootings and fights. However, the story is way too simple and unreal. The bad mercenaries are just bad and obsessed with killing the hero and people round him. Ironically, the warlord who hires them keeps telling them not to mess with Chinese but mercenaries totally ignores his order for reason unknown to us. An obvious dilemma is the producer wants to show that average African people love Chinese people and African warlords are afraid of China, which is politically correct in China. But still, there must be a Chinese-hating crazy paranoiac.
The hero, on the other hand, is really heroic and capable of fighting. But he never uses his brain. He, with the help of a security head and a rich second generation, keeps fighting against a small army with snipers, tanks and drones. And the hero wins in the end.
