Ron Ng and Ruco Chan were shooting by the Sha Tin river the night before for TVB new series ATF Terrorism. The scene was about Ron, who is on the anti-terror squad, suspecting that his brother Ruco has a bomb on himself, so he chased him down with his team.
As the location had a pedestrian walkway and a bicycle path, many onlookers stopped to watch them film. Ron relied on the wires to help him climb over the bridge and then chased Ruco on the bridge's edge. Ruco ran into a dead end and then threw a travel bag with a bomb inside into the river. As a result, the bomb exploded and made a very loud sound. What a stunning scene. The two expressed that the action director is the same one from Burning Flames, therefore they estimate that there will be many challenging action scenes in the future.
Ron said: "The scene where I was climbing up from the bottom of the bridge, 30% of the time I relied on the wires and everything else is on me. Although I do work out myself, and can physically handle the scene, I still carelessly scraped myself. Today we did a lot of running scenes, I should be able to get a good night sleep tonight."
Initially Ruco had to shoot a 'jump into sea' scene, he expressed: "It was taken out this morning because the water temperatures were only 4 degrees, so it's very dangerous. We will film that scene again on another day. In fact, I personally don't mind, just treat it as dragon boat water. I done scenes where I jumped from the harbor before, no need for a stunts double."
