An epic battle is played out by warriors harnessing the power of the elements in this effects-laden fantasy /action drama from the sibling directing team of Oxide Pang and Danny Pang. The brave Lord Nameless (Kenny Ho) is the leader of a band of heroic warriors with remarkable powers and skills. Nameless's nemesis, Lord Godless (Simon Yam), is a warlord from Japan with designs on Nameless's territory in China, and in a daring raid he captures Nameless, imprisons his soldiers and takes control of his land. As things look hopeless, three of Nameless's allies set out to free him: Cloud (Aaron Kwok), Wind (Ekin Cheng) and Chu Chu (Yan Tang). The three warriors call upon Lord Wicked (Wong Tak-bun) for help, while Cloud absorbs Nameless's powers and gifts for sword fighting and Godless's son Heart (Nicholas Tse) runs wild across his father's new property. As Cloud absorbs what he's learned from Nameless and Wind is tutored in combat by Wicked, can they fend off Godless, Heart and their allies? Fung Wan II (aka The Storm Warriors) is a sequel to the 1998 blockbuster Fung Wan: Hung Ba Tin Ha (aka The Storm Riders); both films were adapted from stories from Ma Wing-shing's long-running comic book series.
