Watch skiptrace 2016 full movie online. A detective from Hong Kong teams up with an American gambler to battle against a notorious Chinese criminal.
Prospects look rather more modest for Saban Films’ U.S. release, although the typically quiet Labor Day weekend could provide opportunity for the movie to build word of mouth over the holiday frame. Overall, the film’s cume should continue to grow significantly as it rolls out internationally into next year.
As the U.S.-China co-production opens, it’s nine years after the death of Hong Kong police inspector Bennie Chan’s (Chan) partner Yung Bai (Eric Tsang) at the hands of a Chinese crime syndicate. Chan still blames himself for his best friend’s tragic demise and is still chasing the shadowy underworld figure known as The Matador, whom he blames for the murder. Suspecting that his target is corrupt businessman Victor Wong (Winston Chao), Chan launches an all-out tactical assault on his drug-smuggling operation, only to fail spectacularly and very publicly. Captain Tang (Michael Wong) orders Chan to take a month off while things cool down, but Bennie gets called back into action almost immediately by his goddaughter, Yung’s orphaned only child Samantha (Fan Bingbing).
A guest-services liaison for high rollers at a Macau casino, she’s been duped by flamboyant gambler Conor Watts (Johnny Knoxville), who’s disappeared with a sizable share of the company’s assets. Chan soon discovers why — the American has been kidnapped and airlifted back to Russia, where he has some unfinished business with the unmarried and very pregnant daughter of a local gangster. Chan’s only chance of bringing the gambler to justice is to singlehandedly take on the Russian goons and extract Watts, who doesn’t know whether to be grateful or resentful, now that he’s in the custody of the Hong Kong police.
With their passports destroyed, Chan begins hauling his prisoner overland back to Hong Kong, first crossing Russia by train, then traversing Mongolia by tractor and horseback, before reaching the northern border of China. Their journey reveals that following a murder at the casino, Watts may have inadvertently obtained evidence that could incriminate Wong and finally reveal the identity of The Matador. Unless he can get Watts back to Hong Kong in one piece, however, Chan will have little chance of solving his partner’s murder or resolving his own lingering guilt.
