Storyline

The year is 1963, an illegal immigrant named Ho (Donnie Yen) sneaks into British-ruled Hong Kong. Equipped with guts and combat skills, he plunges into the underground world getting into constant conflict with rivals. After many adversaries, the once good-natured man is physically crippled and turns into a monster more atrocious than all the most corrupted cops and ruthless drug dealers. Ho eventually emerges as the most powerful drug lord under the control of Chief Detective Sergeant, Lee Rock (Andy Lau). However, with the establishment of Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) by the law enforcement in 1974, Rock is forced into premature retirement. But Ho still insists he would not be stopped as he determines to become the sole dictator of the drug empire. Written by DooK

Goofs

In the English subtitles, Chubby disparagingly compares Lee's kid brother to Steve Martin. In the mid-to-late 1960s, when this takes place, Martin was not yet a popular performer. In fairness, this may have been a error by the subtitler, with the original Chinese version featuring a more timely comparison. See more »
