Prison on Fire: Directed by Ringo Lam. With Chow Yun-Fat, Tony Ka Fai Leung, Ka-Kui Ho, Roy Cheung. Inside a Chinese prison two inmates form a friendship and face the difficulty of life on the inside.
“Tony Leung stars as Yiu, who has been jailed for manslaughter. Chow Yun Fat stars as Ching, another prisoner also jailed for manslaughter. Ching is a good-natured prisoner who tries to make the best of his situation, and helps naive Yiu out.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eItu0026#39;s a familiar story of the savagery of prison life, as Yiu u0026amp; Ching must deal with intra-prison triads and a sadistic warden.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe pressure of these elements pushes them to the edge, and by the end of the movie, Ching u0026amp; Yiu completely lose it. This is a very violent and uncomfortable movie to watch. The storyline doesnu0026#39;t make any profound social observations. But Chow Yun Fatu0026#39;s acting is very intense: he really turns into a bug-eyed wild animal. And Tony Leung is good as a man who would easily fall apart in such an environment if not for Chingu0026#39;s support.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe movie also has other Ringo Lam regulars like Tommy Wong u0026amp; Roy Cheung (playing Billy u0026amp; Officer Hung, respectively.)”
