Daniel Wu plays Todd a Cambodian terrorist who
loses his memory, after being knocked unconscious in a gun fight, and is

to exploit his insomnia and, through hypnotism and mind control,
brainwash him and turn him against his former terrorist colleagues who
have instigated a bombing campaign in Hong Kong.
The Purple Storm of the title refers to the
chemical weapon Ricin-X, the formula for which is contained on a disk
that was found on Todd at the time of his arrest. The terrorists intend
to use this deadly weapon to cause mass murder.
