Donnie Yen’s latest modern-day cop movie, Raging Fire, will finally be landing in theatres (and IMAX) on 30 July, but in China first.
Raging Fire is the final movie to be produced and directed by Benny Chan, who passed on 23 August 2020. He was best known for Jackie Chan’s action movies New Police Story (2004) and Rob-B-Hood (2006).
Here is the official synopsis for the movie:
Shan (Donnie Yen) is a highly respected hardline cop with a long history of success on dangerous cases. However, his past unexpectedly comes back to haunt him when a sting operation is attacked by a mysterious group of criminals led by Ngo (Nicholas Tse), his former protégé, a talented former officer who had once respected and admired Shan. However, a terrible mistake three years prior landed him in prison, quickly turning the once rising star into a furious man with a grudge, and the will to destroy everyone who had wronged him—including his former mentor.
Well Go USA Entertainment acquired the North American rights to Raging Fire and is set to hit U.S. theatres later this year before landing on martial arts streaming channel Hi-YAH! There is no news of the movie’s release in markets other than China and U.S. at the moment.
