The Legend of Speed (1999)

烈火戰車二 之極速傳說

Director: Andrew Lau

Starring: Cecilia Cheung, Ekin Cheng, Kelly Lam

A killer street racing flick! In or opinion, this film is a lot more fun and exciting than Full Throttle or Roaring Wheels! Great effects and incredibly stylish direction keep you on the edge of your seat all the way through!

Sky lives only for his passion for racing and his girlfriend. After his rivals frame him for drug possession and murder his girlfriend, he must get revenge in a street race to end all street races.

"The Legend of Speed" is the third collaboration between director/cinematographer Andrew Lau and matinee idol Ekin Cheng. Prior collaborations were: "The Storm Riders" (1998), one of the highest-grossing Hong Kong films of all time, and "A Man Called Hero" a successful followup.

Sky (Cheng) is the Dare Devil of Hong Kong He's the best at drag racing sports cars from one end of the island to the other. He takes all wagers, including side bets that, if you win, you get to break the loser's leg.

He's got a loyal gang around him, including his girlfriend Kelly (Kelly Lin). Except that one of his group of admirers, mousy Nancy (Cecilia Cheung), thinks she's the girl who will love him truly.

Sky's life is complicated by the release from prison of the Dare Devil of the 1980s, Hung (Simon Yam of cult favorite "Naked Killer"). Seems that way back when, Hung defeated Sky's father, known as Black Tone, who since has disappeared to Thailand. Depressed after Kelly's death in a drag-racing accident, Sky goes to Thailand looking for dad.

"The Legend of Speed" has tremendous drag-racing scenes, fluidly edited, with creative computer effects.
