Stephen Fung wrote, produced, and directed The Adventurers, a 2017 Hong Kong action film that also stars and is produced by Andy Lau. Shu Qi, Zhang Jingchu, Tony Yang, and Jean Reno also star in the film. The Adventurers is a film about an ex-con turned burglar (Lau) who steals two magnificent pieces of jewelry at the Cannes Film Festival.
Dan Cheung (Andy Lau), a well-known robber, made a mistake during a heist and was captured and imprisoned as a result. Five years later, Cheung enlists the help of his old partner Po Chen (Tony Yang) and new recruit Red Ye (Shu Qi) to steal valuable jewels in Europe, all while being watched by French detective Pierre (Jean Reno), who has been on Cheung's tail for years.
Cheung identifies the buyer of the gems, King Kong (Eric Tsang), the boss of a criminal organization and a father figure to Cheung, after putting their abilities and agility to the test. Cheung is given a new mission when the two reconcile. At the same time, Pierre persuades Cheung's ex-fiancée, Amber Li (Zhang Jingchu), to join the hunt in order to put Cheung and his gang to justice.
A cat-and-mouse game across Europe begins from Cannes to Prague. Pierre progressively gains an understanding of Cheung's whereabouts after a succession of close-combat melees. And just as everyone is getting close to the target, Cheung's true strategy begins to emerge.
