***SPOILERS*** Far out story about a missing two billion dollars that has been hidden for some twenty years in the lush jungles of Puerto Rico by the US military men who were supposed to burn and destroy it.

Stacy Keach as Gen. Parker who's the big star in the movie "Sunstorm" gets knocked off some ten minutes into the film that may very well have been the reason that he accepted the part: He wouldn't have to suffer through the entire movie like those of us who did by watching it.

If you forget the plot the movie "Sunstorm" does have both breath-taking photography of the Caribbien, Haiti and Puerto Rico, as well as a number of very beautiful women who just take you breath away: Elena Lyons,Romi Dias, Keren Nations, Rebecca Stauber and Natielie Aranda Clederon. But the story is so ridicules that even those natural, women land & aquatic, wonders couldn't save the film.

Were told the story of what happened in the movie by FBI agent Frank Daniels, Ray Raglin, in a D.C bar and strip-joint talking to his close friend and Secret Service undercover man Jack What's-his-Name,Ron Hale.Frank starts off telling Jack as well as the audience that "you wont believe what I'm going to tell you", he was right. By the time he's through with his long and boring story Frank put everyone asleep watching the movie and got Jack drunk trying to stay awake listening to him by gulping down drinks.

Big-time international crime-boss Victoria Warren, Bo Derek, got the word from Packard Welsh, Michael Manasseri, that his dad Luke told him on his death-bed that he and Gen Parker and other top US military men hid some two billion dollars that they were supposed to destroy back in 1984.

The money printed by the Nixon Administration in 1972 was to be used after a possible nuclear war when the US Treausary system would be nuked. Hidden deep in the jungles of Puerto Rico Warren and her mob are out to get the cash as well as the signature plates that are needed to make it legit.

We also have Gen. Parker come back from the dead, via a video tape, to tell his daughter Kelly, Elena Lyons, that she has three other siblings, Maria Natalie & Kristoff and possibly even a forth Ariel, I guess after a while the General lost count, that he never told her about while he was alive. This happens in the late Gen. Parker's lawyers office as it's shot up by Warren and Walsh's goons killing him, the lawyer.

The rest of the movie has the four or five sisters, we never know just how many they are, and Gen. Parker's bodyguard and now his daughter Kelly's boyfriend Dave, William Haze,fighting the bad guys all over the island of Puerto Rico. Dave ends the whole scavenger hunt by setting off one of the box's containing the the hidden cash by using his cell-phone and calling the number of a phone in the C-4 plastic explosives that he hid with the money.

Frank has at the end of the movie a big surprise to tell Jack as well as the audience but he's so long winded and boring telling it that only Jack seems to be impressed only for the reason that his life depends on it.

"Sunstrom" is just too confusing to really understand what it's telling you. The actors in it, Stacy Keach Bo Derek Ray Raglin Michael Manasseri etc., looked and acted as if they were just going through the motions playing their part in it and hoping, like Stacey Keach, to be killed off as soon as possible so that they could finally go home and pick up their pay checks.
