New Hong Kong movie Shockwave (拆彈專家) in Pittsburgh, from May 5.

The 2017 Hong Kong movie Shockwave (拆彈專家) will play at the AMC Loews Waterfront from May 5. The South China Morning Post summarizes Shockwave
which sees another of Hong Kong’s busiest locales – the Cross-Harbour Tunnel – under threat.

[Andy] Lau plays our fearless hero JS, the number-one bomb-disposal expert in the police’s Explosive Ordnance Disposal Bureau. In a prologue that could only be considered lazy plotting, JS is also shown to be previously a trusted long-term mole in a gang of bank robbers headed by Peng Hong (Jiang Wu) – that is, until JS managed to put several of them, though regrettably not including Peng, in prison.

The new Hong Kong movie Love Off The Cuff (春嬌救志明) will also continue to play at the theater. Showtime and ticket information available from Fandango.
