Storm Riders

Before Shaolin Soccer, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, and Hero, there was The Storm Riders. Released in 1998, it was the most visually impressive, action packed film to ever come out of Hong Kong. Based on the hugely successful comic book, Storm Riders set the standard for future action wire-fu special effects movies not only in Hong Kong but around the world. It broke all box office records in its native land due to its exciting story, stellar cast, and impressive CG effects.

Lord Conquer (Sonny Chiba) is an evil martial arts master obsessed with ultimate power. After learning that there are two young boys with special powers, he sets out to unite them and bring invincibility to his clan. After taking the boys by force, he begins training Wind (Ekin Cheng) and Cloud (Aaron Kwok) to use their special gifts. As they grow stronger, so does Conquer's Clan. Wind and cloud believe they were orphaned and raised by Lord Conquer so they feel they owe their lives to him. After Conquer announces that his daughter Charity (Kristy Yang) will marry Wind, the bond between the two brothers is broken. Once they discover Conquer's true intentions, his reign of evil has begun, and it will take the two brothers working together to destroy the man they once called their father.

Never before released in the United States in its original uncut form, this new special edition DVD is the ultimate edition of the original Storm Riders!
