Theatrical Trailer for Derek Yee’s Thriller Triple Tap

After the first, pretty unimpressive teaser trailer for Triple Tap here’s the theatrical trailer for Derek Yee’s thriller starring Louis Koo and Danie Wu as gun-blazing arch-enemies.

Get the Flash Player to see the wordTube Media Player.

Champion competitive marksman Ken stumbles into the middle of an armoured van robbery. He sees a policeman held hostage and shoots and kills four of the robbers. One of the robbers escapes and the policeman survives. The case is handled by Jerry Chang, whom Ken knows from having recently beaten him in a shooting match. Ken is found not guilty in court – for killing the robbers – but soon after, Ken is attacked by the escaped robber Pang Tao. Their confrontation reveals a very different background story and brings about a myriad of lies and traps and changes in relationships as Jerry and Ken try to outsmart each other.

Louis Koo Shoots To Kill in Derek Yee’s Triple Tap

In this first teaser trailer for Derek Yee’s upcoming action thriller Triple Tap (at least thematically related to Double Tap the 2000 film and the shooting technique), Louis Koo can show of his impressive shooting skills. The other shootouts in the film probably won’t be as unidirectional like the one shown in the teaser as Koo’s adversary played by Daniel Wu has also spent some time at the shooting ranch.

A self-styled accident choreographer, the Brain is a professional hitman who kills his victims by trapping them in well crafted accidents that look like unfortunate mishaps but are in fact perfectly staged acts of crime.

After one mission accidentally goes wrong, causing the life of one of his men, the Brain is convinced that this accident has been choreographed: someone is out there plotting to terminate him and his team. He becomes increasingly paranoid, walking on the thin line between reality and delusion.

When he is accosted by a mysterious insurance agent Fong who happened to be on the scene of the accident as well, the Brain becomes obsessed that this man must be the mastermind behind a conspiracy to take him out.
