A pale reboot of the mobster-biopic genre Wong helped make a cornerstone of Hong Kong cinema in the 1990s.
Chasing the Dragon is a bombastic failure as a throwback to 90's gangster films, as a Donnie Yen acting showcase and worse, as a Wong Jing exploitation film. The only thing the film ends up chasing down is its own tail.
The problem is that you've seen it all before. By the end, Chasing the Dragon feels like a stylish retread of Jing Wong's early hits, full of great performances from dependable talent, but missing the scuzzy edge that made his early films so strong.
Yen gives a fine performance of a man willing to do whatever it takes to survive.
... when put together, the two A-listers come up short in portraying the relationship of two men bound together by brotherhood, blood and money.
Chasing the Dragon will be remembered more as a Donnie Yen showcase than a Crippled Ho biopic.
