Ching is a prisoner in a Honk Kong jail that has a large population of Mainland Chinese prisoners. Ching escapes to see his young son, who he has been put in an orphanage. He surrenders himself to authorities, but the vengeful chief of security, Zau, arranges for Ching to be set up in the eyes of the Mainland gang, led by the affable Dragon. Dragon and Ching both then escape separately, and while fugitives, hook up together and bond. Ching is recaptured and instigates a riot to save his own hide from the Mainlanders. In the chaos Ching gets revenge on Skull (who, working with Zau, set him up) and Zau. Written by Scott Hamilton <>

The Cinema of Ringo Lam.
20 February 2005 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

Prison on Fire 2 (1991) follows the life of an inmate that was introduced in Prison on Fire (Chow Yun-Fat). This time the story is all about him as he tries to survive prison life. Chow has two problems, the growing animosity between mainland China prisoners and the Hong Kong inmates. To make matters worse, a new prison guard (Elvis Tsui) has just transfered to the prison and tries to enforce his own law of discipline. Can Chow keep the peace between the gangs or will the prison yard fall into chaos whilst the new yard boss enforces his brutal brand of justice?

Ringo Lam pulls no punches in this docu-drama about life in prison. The characters are more fleshed out this time and we learn the truth about the reason why he's in prison and more about his only child. A deep moving film that's highly recommended for fans of Ringo Lam and Chow Yun-Fat. Stay glued until the end. A very nice surprise from Chow's past comes back into the picture!
