The White Storm is a crime action film directed by Hong Kong director/producer Benny Chan. In the film, the three close childhood friends played by Sean Lau, Louis Koo and Nick Cheung respectively, are three members of the Hong Kong Police Narcotics Bureau. The three encounters live-or-die choices as they go against the Thailand drug lord Big Boss (aka Eight-faced Buddha).
The following weapons were used in the film The White Storm:
Ma Ho-tin (Sean Lau), the leader of a unit from the Hong Kong Police Narcotics Bureau, confiscates a Walther P99 with a stainless steel slide (an unlikely choice for Thai policemen) from a corrupt Thai cop, and uses it as his sidearm in Bangkok.
