CHASING THE DRAGON (TRAILER)

Hong Kong cinema hasn’t delivered a great crime movie in ages. This seems quite odd, considering the insane amount of classic mob thrillers and heroic bloodshed films released in the past, but that’s a discussion for another time. Acclaimed director Wong Jing took it upon himself to take a shot at it again, rebooting a 1991 blockbuster and recruiting none other than Andy Lau and Donnie Yen to reprise their legendary roles as Lee Rock and Cripple Ho. All the ingredients for success are there: All star cast - check. Corny title - check. Illegal immigrant coming up in British-colonized Hong Kong - check. Peep the trailer below.
