Purple Storm is a 1999 Hong Kong action-thriller movie, directed by Teddy Chan and starring Daniel Wu as the protagonist. The movie tells the story of a military officer, Kwan (Daniel Wu), who is investigating a terrorist group called "Purple Storm". The group is responsible for a series of bombings in Hong Kong, killing many innocent people. Kwan's investigations lead him to a former member of the terrorist group, Yip (Kwok-Leung Kam), who is currently in prison. Kwan convinces Yip to help him catch the remaining members of the group and put an end to their reign of terror.

Initially, Yip is hesitant, as he has his own reasons for staying away from the group. However, he eventually agrees to help Kwan, under the condition that he is released from prison. Together, they start their mission and encounter many obstacles along the way. The story takes many twists and turns, keeping the audience guessing until the end.

The movie is full of intense action scenes, with guns blazing and car chases. The visuals are stunning, with Hong Kong's busy streets and towering skyscrapers forming the backdrop for most of the movie. The story is compelling, as it delves into the psyche of the terrorist group's members, their motivations and their past. The movie's characters are well developed, with each having their own personal demons to fight.

Daniel Wu delivers an exceptional performance as Kwan, the military officer who is fighting to bring justice to the people of Hong Kong. He is calm and collected under pressure, and his martial arts skills are showcased in the many fight scenes in the movie. Kwok-Leung Kam is equally impressive as Yip, the former member of the terrorist group who has a lot to prove. His character is conflicted, torn between his loyalty to his former comrades and his desire to do the right thing.

Emil Chau also delivers a strong supporting performance as Yip's friend, who is caught up in the middle of the conflict. He provides comic relief to the otherwise serious tone of the movie. The rest of the supporting cast is also excellent, with each actor bringing their own unique style to the movie.

Overall, Purple Storm is an excellent action-thriller movie, with a compelling story, intense action scenes and excellent performances by the cast. It is a must-watch for fans of the genre, and even for those who are not, the movie is sure to entertain. The movie's themes of redemption, loyalty and justice make it a timeless classic, and a worthy addition to any movie collection.
