Dashing 1960s. the Group kanarowski immigrants in led the brave man Ho arrived at British Hong Kong in the hope to conquer the Golden mountains. In the search result of the work of the men got a gig from the head of one of the triad, which soon rattled in a police station. However, the head area of Louis fresh Lok frees criminals in the connection that his parents, too its time he moved on the Chinese Island of Freedom of Chaozhou. After some time, Ho, remembering the good, saved from certain death, Lieutenant Locke. Now they're best friends — COP bandit — destined to become the shadow king of Kong!

The right hand Louis loc: without the Dog collar becomes wolf

Earlier, I did not see great Won Ching so dark kinoprodukte. As a rule, the films of this Director, first, belong to the genre of Thriller, and secondly, contain a significant mass fraction of humor. "In pursuit of dragons" do no similar to "the Magic crystal" or a "risk", or, even more "City hunter".

Younger brother Lame Ho: Bloody hypocrite! It you Kawthoung dope flunked! Because of you, thousands of people do, and you've teach?! I will shoot up while you will sell out!

It was a crime drama with a dirty-gray atmosphere, but (!) not expect that it will remind you a Big payday. Hai Richie used cool colors, but doodling is pretty fun Kinomax, sprinkled with witty gags. Out Jing, on the contrary, he uses those same colors, but his sketches are absolutely serious. There are no no humor (even black) or comical characters, or a single mishap. Armed bands of Cantonese cinema, Donnie yen Andy Lau, Director of an entertaining manner tells the audience stories about how two businessman-cooperator crushes under whole drug trafficking, prostitution, and rashititelnitsa that is in Hong Kong. As reached the coveted Olympus power, the most gain powerful enemies and bringing their big fiasco.

White superintendent: My people built this city. It we will, utyrkam civilization brought! Without you would fucking a fisherman, Ho!

This is based on real events crimera I would recommend to all and everyone. Not be afraid, reader, solid timekeeping. I myself prefer small movie, I believe me, but in this case, every minute is justified: the film is not contains no empty/drawn out episode. "In pursuit of the dragon" with the beginning catches your attention and not let go until the credits roll.

The good old gangster Thriller from veterans hong-kong movie with a couple of references on it. In fact that the sequel to films of the early ' 90s about Whether the rock — a man risen from a simple policeman to one of the most influential tycoons in a corrupt Hong Kong, soon fate brings him to Have Shi Hao — immigrant Communist China, which will grow to a psychotic drug Lord; all this on the usual background of clan wars and the domination of the British.

The tandem of Andy Lau and Donnie yen here is just gorgeous, both still then very steep. Vigorous battles wall to wall, unnerving antagonists in the face of British, and of course drug trafficking ("chasing dragons" literally — Shiryaev, catch the buzz). Yes, the script is pretty one-sided, not devoid of drawbacks, which suffers most modern Chinese films. Attempts to deepen the drama and bring acting to a higher level — quite helpless, but probably the plan is inappropriate to impose high expectations on Won Jin (single and the most prolific Hong Kong filmmakers), which young age filmed primarily spectacular films, focusing on style and action Packed; and for a movie of this kind in a whole. So the deal with viewer, all the same, honest.
