COMPLETE FILMOGRAPHY WITH SYNOPSIS
Sound (feature film)
Nick Chen is one of the NYPD''s most decorated officers. The first Chinese-born immigrant on the force, Chen has used his close ties with a group of Chinese "businessmen" known as the Triads to rise through the ranks. Now, a gold shield detective and the star officer on the city''s highly touted Asian gang unit, it''s Chen''s job to keep peace in Chinatown. But a turf war has erupted between the Triads and the newly arrived and brutally violent Fukienese Dragons. As the precarious peace in Chinatown is interrupted, the NYPD beefs up the Asian Gang Unit with a new recruit: an idealistic cop, Danny Wallace, who is unaware of how power and influence have compromised his superiors. When the Tongs boldly attempt to corrupt this young officer, Chen is forced to realign his loyalties.
Hank Mitchell has an apparently perfect small-town life, complete with steady job and a pregnant wife. The only cloud on his horizon is his half-witted brother Jacob and his redneck pal, who clearly resent him. The three of them stumble by chance on a crashed plane containing a charred body and $4 million in a bag. They decide to keep the money -- it is a victimless theft after all -- but the simple plan begins to unravel. The police become suspicious, Jacob talks too much, and events soon spiral out of control.
The President of the United States, James Marshall, takes a tough anti-terrorist stance and then becomes a hostage himself when Air Force One is taken over by terrorists from Kazakhstan, led by Ivan Korshunov, who demand the release of their fascistic leader General Radek. The President seems to escape from the plane in an emergency capsule yet is actually hiding on board. He silently kills a member of the terrorist group before establishing contact with F-15''s to engage the hijacked plane. As passengers escape by parachute, Marshall is captured by Ivan and forced to release General Radek, setting in motion an international incident.
Samantha Caine is a suburban school teacher suffering from amnesia. When Caine''s mysterious past begins to haunt her idyllic life, she sets out on a desperate search to discover her true identity. Aided by Mitch Henessey, a dead-beat private detective, the two follow a trail of clues into the middle of a conspiracy led by rogue elements of the U.S. intelligence community and a notorious international arms dealer. They slowly learn that Caine is much more than a PTA mom who cooks a mean lemon meringue pie. Repressed from her memory is her former life as Charly Baltimore, a highly trained secret agent involved in the government''s most unscrupulous affairs. Submerged in a murky underworld with no boundaries for survival and no one they can trust, Henessey must help Samantha rekindle her dangerous past. For without the full extent of her lethal skills, they will never be able to confront Timothy, a vindictive enemy who''s plotting one of the most heinous acts of urban terrorism ever devised.
