Mr. Chow, the virus that has

infected the mainframe can't be cured.

It's threatening to

wipe out the entire system.

Chairman Chow, you must take

control of the situation immediately.

If this continues, our stock

will plummet when the market opens.

We'll suffer significant

losses in the EU market.

- Chow Lui, what shall we do?

- Pay them off.

If we do,

they'll come back for more.

Our computers are protected by a

world-class first-rate security system.

Clients invest in us because

we guarantee absolute safety.

It's obvious that our mainframe is

being attacked by an external virus.

If we don't pay them off,

our reputation will be ruined.

No amount of money

can compensate for that.

Something called the Computer

Angel is getting rid of the virus!

Thank God! We're fine again.

Find this Computer Angel for me.

Who is this Angel?

Someone we can use.

How can I help you, miss?

- I'm here to see Mr. Chow Lui.

- Who shall I tell him...?

- The Computer Angel.

- One moment, please.

You want to buy $20 billion

of Dragon stock.

I think this is crazy.

I won't sanction it.

- Have you thought about...?

- The Computer Angel is here.

May, show her up.

Right away, Chairman Chow.

Alice, please turn down Dragon

on behalf of Nunn.

Sister-in-law, let's discuss this

in my office.

Sure. Don't stay too late tonight.

Control Center to Mr. Yip. Over.

Someone called the Computer

Angel is in the lobby...

...claiming to have an appointment

with Chow. Do you receive?

I'm Yip, Chairman Chow's chief of

security. We have to perform a search.

- She doesn't have weapons on her.

- Thank you.

This way, please.

Chairman Chow is waiting upstairs.

Mr. Yip, please go with them.

This way, please.

I'm May, Chairman Chow's secretary.

Sorry about just now.

Mr. Chow rarely receives visitors

nowadays, so our security's a bit tight.

- How are you?

- How do you do?

Please have a seat.

Do you have a name besides

Computer Angel?

Computer Virus!

I'm both Virus and Angel. The invasion

and battle against your computer... my organization's

best optical illusion.

We were simply manipulating

the images on your screens.

None of your data was affected.

The only things we disabled were your

portals and prevention systems.

That's why it looked so realistic.

So much for the opening speech.

What's your point?

You've amassed your fortune through

smuggling and drugs.

It's an evil fortune.

You're impossible to approach

unless it's at your own bidding.

So I've come here to...

It's such a pity that you're so


Even if you had a cannon you

wouldn't be able to touch me.

Why do you think I put the glasses in


That much cyanide would poison

a quarter...

...of the rush-hour subway crowd.

All units, Chairman Chow's in trouble,

check it out! Do you copy?

I copy!

Target destroyed.

I'm leaving the scene.

The police have picked up the alarm.

They'll be there in 5 minutes.

The guards on the 87 floor are

forming into groups:

Two in the elevator, five by the

stairs, two are at the lobby elevators.

I'm corrupting the screens in


...and cutting off their communication.


What's happening? What's going on?

Let's listen to a song.

- What's going on?

- What happened?

Why is there music?

Hey, what's going on?

Count to 20 and go down.

One, two, three...

They're about 80 meters from you... 10:
00, four men total.

Forty meters...

...30 meters...

...20, 10, 5, here.

- Eight, nine...

May, what's going on?

Now count to 20 and go back up.


...four, three, two, one. This image
