Donnie Yen in Official US Trailer for Crime Film 'Chasing the Dragon'
"Whatever I get in the future, you will get half." Well Go USA has unveiled two official trailers for the Hong Kong action film Chasing the Dragon, from directors Jason Kwan & Jing Wong. This true story is about a drug lord in the 1960s, who snuck into British-ruled Hong Kong as an illegal immigrant. Donnie Yen stars as "Crippled Ho", who uses his combat skills to get deep into the underground world before being physically ruined. He eventually works under the control of Chief Detective Sergeant, Lee Rock, played Andy Lau, until the Independent Commission Against Corruption (aka the ICAC) in 1974. The full cast includes Philip Keung, Kang Yu, Kent Cheng, and Bryan Larkin. This looks cool but also totally crazy, almost like a parody more than a drama. It also seems like there might be a few badass action scenes hidden in this film.
Here's the US trailers (+ intl. poster) for Jason Kwan & Jing Wong's Chasing the Dragon, from YouTube:
