As the film continues, Renjie is locked up in prison. It takes all of Renjie’s ability, but ey is able to receive eir freedom and solve the case. The tension and action that is present in Rise of the Sea Dragon will have viewers on the edges of their seats, while the film’s pacing ensures that the story is properly fleshed out.
