“The Impossible 3” Tries New Miniseries Format

Shaw Brothers is trying new things with The Impossible 3 <非凡三俠>, a 6-episode action series which has a film-like quality, yet takes the format of a miniseries to tell a tighter story. The drama streamed on Chinese online platform Youku in November and premiered on TVB on December 28.

Starring Chilam Cheung (張智霖), Chrissie Chau (周秀娜), and Bosco Wong (黃宗澤) as three seemingly unrelated characters who come together to save a kidnapped child in a suspenseful plot. In an unconventional role for Vincent Wong (王浩信), the charismatic Best Actor stars as a mentally-unstable abductor.

Produced by Virginia Lok (樂易玲), The Impossible 3 is directed by the late Billy Tang (鄧衍成) and scripted by Joey Meng’s (萬綺雯) husband, Chan Sap Sam (陳十三), who was the creative genius behind My Date With a Vampire <我和殭屍有個約會> franchise.

Despite its miniseries format, the drama features a stellar guest star list consisting of: Moses Chan (陳豪), Lawrence Cheng (鄭丹瑞), Kiki Sheung (商天娥), James Ng (吳業坤), Jacky Cai (蔡潔), Samantha Ko (高海寧), Sammy Shum (沈震軒), and Amigo Chui (崔建邦).

        @bubbles23 it’s not the acting that was bad it was the plot. SO random. I think the six episodes was too short to really draw out the story. Good background noise if you want to try it

      I agree, I struggled just with episode 1,

      It’s good cast but the plot is crap,

    This was not bad. Different from the typical plot and way of filming, decent cast (I’m a fan of Chilam), and interesting enough to watch to the end (I typically lose interest quickly and disengage after a few episodes, so 6 episodes here weren’t too many to commit to).
