This crime drama, based on true events, tells the story of Crippled Ho (Donnie Yen) and his rise to the top of Hong Kong's drug trade in the 1960s. He fights dirty cops and rival dealers along the way, but the creation of an anti-corruption commission in 1974 threatens his empire. Jason Kwan and Wong Jin directed this remake of the 1991 film To Be Number One. Andy Lau, Kent Cheng, Philip Keung, and Wilfred Lau co-star.
