Chasing The Dragon

Set in the `60s, Ho is man who has slipped into Hong Kong from Mainland China, where at the time Hong Kong Police Force is in cahoots with the triads under British colonial rule. He later receives help from Detective Lee Rock to escape further torture by British Police, thanks to his fighting skills.

The Good, the Bad and the Drug Lord:

• The movie borrows elements and characters from two 1991 movies "Lee Rock" and "To be Number One", and turns it into one of the best gangster flicks out there.

• Coming from director Wong Jing who is known for his recently bad comedy flicks like "Mission Milano" and "From Vegas to Macau" franchise, the movie is actually very decent and downright entertaining.

• It is kind of like the Hong Kong version of "The Godfather", and everything from the production design, action choreography, and acting are notably brilliant.

• Donnie Yen and Andy Lau give a fine performance, and their exchange with each other is fun to watch.

Trivia:

• This is the first collaboration between Donnie Yen and Andy Lau, and the first collaboration between Yen and director Wong Jing in 20 years.
