Beautiful women does not always a good movie make. Even with two talented actors who couldn't save it if they tried.
8 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ah, yes, Sunstorm. A movie that I remember seeing on listings on Showtime and recorded them through DVR but deleted it many times to make more room but still recorded it and tried to find time to watch it but then I deleted it again. And then one day, I was at a flea market and came across a section that had movies that were obviously from a Hollywood Video location that had closed not too long before it. I remember coming across a DVD of this at the flea market and bought it along with other movies. Even for a dollar, that was a waste.

I will be honest. I have a strange thing for B-movies. I sometimes believe that there are B-movies out there that despite being low budget and bad in quality, they can still be rather entertaining. Such was not the case with this movie. I remember seeing on the listing that it was like "Charlie's Angels" which I am not opposed to. I enjoy looking at hot women as much as the next guy and there are movies out there that have hot women and action and still provide entertainment. One example is "DOA: Dead or Alive." However, this movie was so bad that I really wonder how Bo Derek and Stacy Keach got roles in this movie. Were they really hurting for money that they found whatever they can find? I don't know if Stacy Keach really needed it around the time this movie was made because this wasn't too far off from "American History X," which he did really well in. The quality of the acting and the action sequences were so bad that I felt like turning it off at some point but knowing myself, I felt like I needed to see how it ended and I regretted that action in hindsight.

All I can say is that no matter how hot the women are, it doesn't always mean that the movie will be entertaining. I still cringe at the "Miami Vice" line in the movie. *SHUDDER* So badly delivered.
