YesAsia Editorial Description

Young and Dangerous hero Ekin Cheng breaks the speed limit in the entertaining racing drama The Legend of Speed. Directed by Andrew Lau (Infernal Affairs, The Storm Riders), the film stars Cheng as Sky, a rebellious street racer whose cocky demeanor and sometimes brash behavior make him a prime candidate for a fall. Sky receives his comeuppance when a race against ex-con Fung (Simon Yam) results in tragic consequences. Exiled to Thailand, Sky meets his wayward father (Blacky Ko), who helps Sky reconnect to the philosophical side of his racing talent. Reinvigorated and wiser, Sky plans to return to Hong Kong for a rematch with Fung, only to discover that his past has caught up with him, perhaps fatally. Featuring an all-star cast of Hong Kong entertainment stars, including Cecilia Cheung (The Promise), Kelly Lin (After This, Our Exile), Patrick Tam (Beast Cops, and Moses Chan (TVB's Heart of Greed), Legend of Speed features thrilling racing sequences and a cool central performance by Ekin Cheng, whose string of late nineties box-office hits made him Hong Kong's most bankable young actor. The film was a large success, pulling in over HK$19 million at the box office during the Christmas 1999 movie season, paving the way for director Andrew Lau's later racing blockbuster Initial D.

VCD has great quality! Customer Review Rated Bad 7 - 7 out of 10
Overall this movie was pretty enjoyable. I liked Ekin Cheng's performacnce as the movie progressed. As for as Ekin Cheng movies go, its about what you'd expect. But if you like him and his style movies or Initial D, this would be your kind of movie.

High Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
If you are, like me, interested in fast modified cars and high-speed action then this is a definite MUST-SEE. Although the racing scenes are very much borrowed from the popular anime series initial-D, they are certainly the best head-head car battles ever seen in a hong kong film - with the help of some computer graphics.

The storyline is nothing new and certainly not award-winning standard, but everything unfolds logically.

To an average viewer, some of the technical terms used (car components) may be off putting at times and the idea of illegal street racing somewhat pointless. But to a true car enthusiast everything seems necessarily logical.

The beginning of race movies Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
To me this was a great movie for them to make. This movie is probably the first movie about import racing. Yeah i know people was like fast and the furios but this came out way before and fast and the furious is a good movie but it's not about drag racing like we do in American. It's about really skill in driving. Not all that oooo there's a civic , integra ooo soo cool i'm fast and furious b/c you got those cars. The real cars to fix up are the subaru's lancers, old FTO, silvia's, skyline's, rx-7, surpa's even all the back to the 86 corolla which was the best car i think. This movie is about going through an obstacle which on-cmoing traffic is envolved. Not just going down the street. I mean any body can do that. Shit my mom does that every day go down the street. That's just my opinion i hate it when people always say fast and the furios and i'm not being racist or anything but. The director of fast and the furious not showing the true meaning of import cars. I admit the fast and the furious is a good movie but i guess that's for America Import CArs. Then eveyr one trying to go into drifting which happend all long time ago and all of hte sudden everyone's into it. Hey only japanese peopel are the best and i see this american or european guy with a GTO in the D1. He got his butt spanked infront of every one.
