Chasing the Dragon (追龍, Chui lung, litt. « La Chasse au dragon ») est un film sino-hongkongais réalisé par Wong Jing et Jason Kwan et sorti en 2017. Il raconte l'ascension dans les années 1960 d'un immigrant illégal chinois à Hong Kong dans le monde criminel. C'est une reprise du film Le Parrain de Hong Kong (1991).

Andy Lau retrouve le personnage qu'il tenait dans Lee Rock (1991) et Lee Rock 2 (1991) et inspiré de Lui Lok, tandis que Donnie Yen interprète « Ho l’estropié », un personnage inspiré de Ng Shek-ho , un véritable parrain de la mafia.

Sa suite, Chasing the Dragon 2, sort en 2019, bien qu'elle n'a narrativement rien à voir avec le premier film.

Synopsis

En 1963, un immigrant clandestin chinois (Donnie Yen) arrive dans la colonie britannique corrompue de Hong Kong. Sous le nom de « Ho l’estropié », il devient petit à petit un puissant baron de la drogue grâce à sa ruse et sa cruauté. Il est aidé dans son ascension par Lee Rock (Andy Lau), un inspecteur de police corrompu, pour affronter les gangs rivaux.
