Two of Hong Kong cinema’s biggest stars—Donnie Yen (IP Man franchise) and Andy Lau (The Bodyguard)—team up for the stylish, action-filled Hong Kong crime thriller Chasing the Dragon.

Based on a true story, Yen stars as infamous real-life drug kingpin Crippled Ho, who sneaks into Hong Kong as an illegal immigrant in 1963 and ruthlessly carves an empire from the chaotic underworld of drug dealers and corrupt police that ruled the city under notorious detective Lee Rock (Lau).

The film sees Lau reprising the role of the corrupt cop seeking money and power he originated in the Lee Rock franchise. Hong Kong cinema fans should look out for cameo appearances from movie legends Kenneth Tsang (Rush Hour 2) and Chan Wai-man (Dragon Strike).

A Hong Kong/China co-production, Chasing the Dragon is unrated.
