As the first Chinese film about rescue at sea, “The Rescue” is a touching story based on the China Rescue & Salvage (CRS). The alarm went off at the base. An emergency occurred on an offshore drilling platform that caused it to capsize and go under. The Emergency Response Unit raced against the clock in a chopper rescue mission amidst dangerous explosions and a raging fire. The captain of the Unit Gao Qian (Eddie Peng) must work seamlessly with his chopper pilot Zhao Cheng (Wang Yulin) to rescue survivors using the most maverick and dangerous tactics.
