“Raging Fire” Releases New Teaser
Starring Donnie Yen (甄子丹) and Nicholas Tse (謝霆鋒), Raging Fire (怒火) released its action-packed teaser. In the 15-second teaser clip, there are many breathtaking sequences including gunfights, explosions, and hand-to-hand combat scenes between Donnie and Nicholas where were filmed in director Benny Chan‘s (陳木勝) signature style.
Donnie stars as Shan, a righteous and talented policeman who has solved many cases. Nicholas plays Ngo, who was once a promising young cop under Shan’s wing. An unfortunate incident led Ngo to prison several years ago. Upon his release, Ngo becomes a bitter and resentful man who sets out to destroy all those who have wronged him.
It has been 14 years since Donnie and Nicholas worked in Bodyguards and Assassins <十月圍城> together, and Donnie is full of praise for his younger costar, exclaiming that Nicholas is a qualified action star due to his agility and ability to handle his own stunts.
Returning to the big screen after a three-year hiatus, Nicholas admits feeling pressure in his action scenes with Donnie, who is the undisputed icon of Hong Kong kung fu movies in recent years.
Raging Fire is filmmaker Benny Chan‘s (陳木勝) last project before his untimely passing from nasopharyngeal cancer in August 2020. The film is scheduled for a 2021 release.

Looking forward to watching this. Been awhile since Donnie filmed a quality HK action film.
Bodyguards and assassins was 2009, hence 11 years, not 14.
I haven’t seen a big modern action movie in Hong Kong for quite sometime now. I hope this delivers, being both Donnie’s first lead in such a movie since Kung Fu Jungle as well as Benny Chan’s swansong as a director.
Given the current situation in Hong Kong, I wonder how people will respond to the movie heavily glorifying the law enforcement.
