Black Mask is a 1996 Hong Kong action thriller directed by Daniel Lee, with an all-star cast including Jet Li, Ching Wan Lau, and Karen Mok. The movie follows the story of Tsui Chik (Jet Li), a former member of a secret government organization called 701 Squad, which used experimental drugs to create supersoldiers. However, Tsui left the organization after developing severe side effects and vowing never to use his deadly skills again.

Now, Tsui lives a peaceful life as a librarian until his old friend, Rock (Ching Wan Lau), approaches him for help. A mysterious group of villains called the Syndicate is on a deadly rampage, threatening to blow up Hong Kong unless their demands are met. Rock, who is now a police officer, asks Tsui for his assistance in taking down the Syndicate and their leader, Hung (Francoise Yip).

Tsui reluctantly agrees to help, donning his black mask and returning to the world of violence he had sought to leave behind. Along with an elite team of police officers, Tsui sets out to foil the Syndicate's plan and save Hong Kong from destruction.

The movie is packed with thrilling action sequences, as Tsui battles hordes of formidable foes using his impressive martial arts skills and expertise in weaponry. He faces off against helicopter gunships, tanks, and heavily-armed soldiers with fearless determination, proving himself to be a force to be reckoned with. The fight scenes are expertly choreographed, showcasing Jet Li's agility and speed while also highlighting the intensity and brutality of the clashes.

Alongside the high-octane action is a gripping storyline that delves deeper into Tsui's past and the sinister motives of the Syndicate. As the movie progresses, Tsui and his team uncover dark and disturbing secrets about the organization that created them, and Tsui must confront the truth about his involvement with 701 Squad.
