Trinity CineAsia has announced Raging Fire will open the London East Asia Film Festival 2021 on 21st October 2021 for its UK Premiere, before coming to cinemas from 12th November 2021. Starring action superstar Donnie Yen (Ip Man 1-4, Flash Point, Rogue One), it also marks the final film of popular Hong Kong director Benny Chan who passed away last year. The film will be released on Blu-ray, DVD & Digital on 10th January 2022.
While conducting a raid to arrest a drug lord, police encounter a group of masked thugs. In a violent act of sabotage, the gang steals the drugs and murders the police officers on the scene. Arriving late, Inspector Cheung Shung-bong (Donnie Yen) is devastated to see the brutal aftermath, discovering the cop killers are led by Ngo (Nicholas Tse, New Police Story, Shaolin), his former protégé. Once a rising star in the police who was driven to a life of crime, he now bears a grudge. As their fates become entangled again, a score will be settled once and for all.
Packed full of exhilarating action and Yen’s signature world class fight scenes, Raging Fire is one of the best Hong Kong movies of recent times and a throwback to the golden age of action cinema.
