Starring Donnie Yen as the legendary Crippled Ho and Andy Lau as the infamous corrupted cop Lee Rock, "Chasing the Dragon" manages to be epic, ultra violent, unforgiving, while at the same time totally racist and bashing of the British colonial era. Above it all, directors Wong Jing combines so well with Jason Kwan that literally we see next to...
