Storyline

This is a story about the biggest financial fraud attempted in Hong Kong, directed at the Government of Hong Kong and involved all 7 million Hong Kong citizens... no one is free from the scheme. Within the four decades of guarding Hong Kong's financial integrity, the ICAC has never come across an opponent so huge and so well organized as in the Z Torrent file... shadowy figures from the underworld of South America, Italy and Europe all ready to plot against the estimated 150 million dollars of Hong Kong citizens' tax money which was pooled in a fund called the WELFARE FUND. High profile chartered accountants, high ranking law enforcers, power lawyers, the super entrepreneurs; they all have their shares of play but none can really grasp the big picture; they are there only for what they desire most. When the wife of an up-rising star Superintendent of police force reported his corruption simply out of bitterness for being ill-treated, little did she know she is about to pull the head ...

Could have been better
8 February 2017 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film tells the story of several anti corruption agents who are hot in the tails of a corrupt policeman. They soon discover that the corruption scandal involves a very wide and powerful network, but they tirelessly try to fight against the odds.

"Z Storm" has a stellar cast, but a semi intriguing story. I'm sure the filmmakers tried hard to make a thrilling film, but the end result is not as thrilling as hoped. Some scenes look like an over acted soap opera, such as the private investigator and the cancer survivor. These scenes are perhaps there to entertain viewers, but I don't find them entertaining, but distracting and subtracting the film from suspense and thrill. The film looks more like a propaganda film for ICAC, than a thrilling drama been two different law enforcement agencies.
