Eddie Peng Yu-Yan and Zhang Hanyu starred in the action film OPERATION MEKONG is Dante Lam Chiu Yin directed. The film took three years to plan. Based on actual events, the film was shot on location in Malaysia, Thailand, Myanmar and Yunnan. The production was so serious that it could rival Hollywood star class production. Director Lam Chiu Yin not only insisted on actual location shoots and real fighting for actors, but also flawless props. The final water battle scene used six helicopters and almost 40 speed boats at the same time. The car chased used nearly 100 luxury cars. No wonder Peng Yu-Yan during the shoot sensed how fragile life was. "The explosive equipment was set not too far from me. During the explosions the mud spray onto my face and into my ears. They felt so real and especially loud, like I was in a real battlefield!"

The film fought from the shopping center in a busy city to the wilderness of the mountains, at sea, on the ground and in the air. Zhang Hanyu remembered the shopping center fight scene the most. He said, "The team booked a shopping center and set up a bar inside. We started fighting at night. In the end the entire set was completely blown to bits. It was a film that was full of gun fire!"
