'Speed Angels' On HK DVD And Blu-Ray

 

Jingle Ma's racing actioner 'Speed Angels' is now available to own on HK DVD and Blu-Ray. The film stars Rene Liu ('Starry Starry Night'), Cecilia Cheung ('Legendary Amazons'), and Tang Wei ('Wu Xia') as three female racecar drivers whose friendship, love, and glory collide on the racetracks.

Synopsis

Han Bing (Rene Liu) and You Mei (Cecilia Cheung) used to be the star racers of the Speed Angels racing team. Unfortunately, the best friends turned into worst enemies when Bing found that Mei had stolen her fiancé Asano (Kitamura Kazuki) from her. Since their bitter falling-out, Mei has left the team, and Bing has been struggling to recover from her personal failure, her racing records soon surpassed by young teammate Sanoka (Tanaka Chie). A year later, coach Gao Feng (Justin Han) attempts to revive the Speed Angels for the first Asian Heroine Rally, and he recruits talented cab driver (and tai chi practitioner) Hong Xiaoyi (Tang Wei) to join the team. But Xiaoyi must first undergo a vigorous training regime devised by trainer Joe (Jimmy Lin) before she can partner with Bing and possibly stand a chance against the rival Sakura team, now led by "Drifting Queen" Sanoka and You Mei!
