The Donnie Yen Action Thriller RAGING FIRE Set to Open London East Asia Film Festival Before Coming to UK Cinemas on November 12th!

By: John M Jerva

By this time, action fans in North America already know that Donnie Yen’s Raging Fire from the late, great director Benny Chan is an “operatic action spectacle” courtesy of my review but Yen and Hong Kong action aficionados in the UK have not yet been able to experience one of the best action films of 2021 just yet.

That’s all about to change as Raging Fire is ready to take the UK by force via Trinity CineAsia as it’s going to open the London East Asia Film Festival before it launches in theaters this November. To celebrate the occasion, check out the new key art and images below and expect a new trailer coming soon!

Trinity CineAsia is proud to announce Raging Fire will open the London East Asia Film Festival 2021 on 21st October for its UK Premiere, before coming to cinemas from 12th November. 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.

Synopsis: Get ready for Raging Fire, an action-packed, modern Hong Kong crime classic starring international superstar Donnie Yen (Ip Man 1-4, Flash Point, Rogue One) also marking the final film of writer and director Benny Chan (Invisible Target, Call of Heroes).

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 Fireis one of the best Hong Kong movies of recent times and a throwback to the golden age of action cinema.
