Hong Kong cinema titans Donnie Yen and Andy Lau team up in the highly anticipated crime action drama Chasing the Dragon. Co-directed by Wong Jing and Jason Kwan (A Nail Clipper Romance), the film about crime, corruption and brotherhood in 1960s and 70s Hong Kong revolves around a gangster and a cop inspired by notorious real-life figures: drug lord Ng Sek Ho, whose life was previously dramatized in To Be Number One, and corrupt sergeant Lui Lok whom Andy Lau portrayed in the Lee Rock series.
In the 1960s, Ho (Donnie Yen) flees from Chaozhou to Hong Kong to seek a better life, but this rich and corrupt city has little for poor, uneducated folks like him. Ho and his friends barely get by as short-term laborers and occasionally take money to pose as gangsters for triad showdowns. During one of these gang fights for show, the brawl turns real and Ho gets into a violent confrontation with a vindictive British cop. Inspector Lee Rock (Andy Lau), who admires Ho's fighting skills, gets him out of prison. Ho later returns the favor by sacrificing his own leg to save Lee. Starting from the bottom rung of the Kowloon Walled City, Ho fights his way to the top of Hong Kong's drug empire. Meanwhile, Lee rises the ranks to become the top-ranking Chinese officer. Working together from opposite sides of the law, the two corner the drug market, eliminate enemies, accumulate riches and maintain the power balance of the underworld. The partnership begins to unravel, however, as Ho's aspirations grow and Lee sees the writing on the wall with the establishment of the ICAC.
