Reckless police inspector Tung (Zhang Jin) is on a mission to crack down on Shing's (Shawn Yue) gold-smuggling operation, yet fails to apprehend the criminal. As Tung continues the manhunt, he discovers Shing's involvement with triad boss Blackie (Yasuaki Kurata), who hides on a casino cruise ship on the high seas. Shing has been involved in a power struggle within the smuggling ring and is forced to kill his adopted father while also losing his share of the smuggling business to Blackie. To get even, Shing appears on the cruise, Tung is there to hunt him down, and bullets and fists start flying. The directing debut from veteran assistant director Jonathan Li, The Brink is a classic shoot 'em up, concluding with an epic fight sequence on the ship during a typhoon.
