Movie Info

Hong Kong director Teddy Chen follows up on his hit Downtown Torpedoes (1997) with this breathless action flick that recalls the South Korean mega hit Swiri (1999). Just as Hong Kong's new airport is set to open, a band of terrorists strike a Korean cargo ship, but they leave behind three encoded computer discs and Todd Nguyen (Daniel Wu), an American-educated Cambodian-Chinese man who has complete amnesia. Anti-terrorist cop Ma Li (Emil Chow) and psychiatrist Shirley Kwan (Joan Chen, whose voice is dubbed into Cantonese) struggle to turn Todd against his comrades and to wrest the secrets from his blanked memory. Meanwhile, Soong (Kam Kwok-leung), the crazed leader of the terrorist group, and his sexy sidekick Guan Ai (Josie Ho), plot to unleash a deadly chemical weapon somewhere in Hong Kong.

Audience Reviews for Chi Yu Fungbo

A bit different from typical HK films from the same genre; trying to make sense at the beginning. Quickly falling back to formulaic action genre from middle onwards however. Gan Kwok Leung is cool although its rather awkward seeing him acts.

I feel sorry for the character Daniel Wu plays. He begins as a criminal but an accident with his head happened during the mission and he got amnesia. The CIA decided to use this to their advantage, with a little hypnotism and false memories, he will lead CIA to his crime father. However he somehow was captured by his father and memories come back bit by bit until he is confused and lost. He thought he was doing good but somehow went bad after his son was killed in a bombing. Now he must help CIA stop his father from unleashing the Purple Storm that will cost thousands of lives. The ending is a fitting one and I'm happy to have seen it.
