Hong Kong star Nicholas Tse is set to make his debut as an action choreographer in the upcoming film Customs Frontline, hitting Chinese mainland theaters on Friday. The action-packed movie follows Hong Kong customs officers as they uncover illegal weapons on a cargo ship, leading them on a thrilling international adventure.

The premiere event, held in a Beijing cinema, brought together the film's main cast, including Tse, actresses Karena Lam and Liu Yase, and actor Kenny Kwan. Music legend Jacky Cheung also makes his return to the silver screen after an eight-year hiatus, playing a customs officer battling high-functioning depression.

Tse revealed his attraction to Customs Frontline stemmed from his love for sea-related themes, especially considering Hong Kong's unique coastal identity.

He also emphasized the importance of performing real stunts, citing it as a cherished tradition that propelled Hong Kong films to international acclaim. Despite the growing use of special effects in the modern film industry, Tse believes Hong Kong filmmakers should continue to value and uphold this tradition.

"Many Western movies have learned to craft action choreography from Hong Kong films," Tse said, highlighting the need to preserve this legacy.
