The Fatal Mission (怒江之战) is about a specialized team of WWII Chinese Expeditionary Force on a top secret mission into Savage Mountain, Burma. The mission is so secretive not even the team members know what it is about. But after getting shot at by the Japanese forces, discovering American dead bodies in the middle of the forsaken jungle, getting captured by the Burmese natives, and realizing there is a mole on their team, they begin to piece together the true purpose of their mission.
In either case, I watch this show like a fantasy/scifi drama. It requires a complete suspension of disbelief. Yes, their super thin armor plates are bullet proof. Yes, their hair and faces are sweat and dirt proof as well. Yes, the captain can traverse through a jungle on high heel boots.
Once I got over those minor technical issues, I grew quite attached to my team members and their plight. I am currently half way through the drama and feeling a bit freaked out. Cuz’ I know this is the point when my favorites start dying. The captain did say she can’t guarantee they will all come out alive. Noooo!!!!
On the other hand, we need Chang Mao but we don’t want him. Cynical. Mercenary. Tongue in cheek humor. Great hair. His teammate tried to shoot him once. Even so, we can’t let him get blow up by landmines.
