Young and Dangerous: The Prequel (traditional Chinese: 新古惑仔之少年激鬥篇) is a 1998 Hong Kong Triad film directed by Andrew Lau. It is the second prequel in the Young and Dangerous film series.
The film shows Chan Ho Nam (Nicholas Tse), Chicken Chiu (Sam Lee) and their friends being recruited by Uncle Bee (Ng Chi-Hung) and joining the "Hung Hing" triad.
Because he was only 17, and born on August 29, 1980, Nicholas Tse is not allowed to watch the movie when the movie opens in Hong Kong cinemas on June 5, 1998 because this movie is classified as Category III, which is a restricted category in the Hong Kong motion picture rating system and the category is strictly for persons aged 18 and above only.
