A big-budget, high-octane techno-thriller by production giants Media Asia, Purple Storm is one of the most acclaimed films in Hong Kong movie making history. Winner of no less than ten awards at the Year 2000 'Hong Kong Critics Awards' and 'Golden Horse Film Festival', Purple Storm marked a new level of technical excellence by a Hong Kong production studio.

Produced by action-legend Jackie Chan, Purple Storm is an emotionally tense hi-concept thriller with electric action sequences and a defined sense of moral conscience.

When hardened terrorist Todd Chow (Daniel Wu) receives a serious head injury during a desperate bid to gain control of a biological super-weapon, he awakens in the care of an elite counter-terrorist unit, but with no recollections of his past life.

With his father and other cell members now on the run with the most powerful biological weapon known to man, the CT team leader Ma Li (Chow Wah-kin) manages to convince Todd, using the expert services of psychiatrist Shirley Kwan, (Joan Chen - The Last Emperor), that he is actually an undercover cop sent to infiltrate his former terrorist cell.

With the weapon now out in the open, the authorities use Todd as bait to lure the terrorists out into the firing-line. As fragments of Todd´s shattered memory return, he is forced to choose between his dark past and his one and only chance for redemption; a situation which will put him at odds with his father, his wife and ultimately himself!

Tense, dynamic and utterly compelling, this acclaimed action-drama is the ideal cross-over title to bring many new converts into the exciting World of Asian Action Cinema!
