Actually good, surprisingly
28 November 2019 | by EiriksterminatorSee all my reviews

The negative reviews in here surprise me. I found the first movie in this series, Z Storm, to be a mediocre bore. The sequel, S Storm, was a little better, and didn't bore me to death, but it was still very average. So I was expecting mediocrity from this movie, but was pleasantly surprised. This third movie, L Storm, is the first one in the series that I actually genuinely enjoyed, and to me it is by far the best entry so far. This one has a lot more action in it than both of the other two combined, which makes a big difference, as there is finally some actual suspense to keep your adrenaline going a bit. Various police departments investigating connected cases from different angles was also interesting. I'm going to watch the latest entry in this movie series, P Storm, next. I've also heard there's a G Storm entry coming out in the future. I wonder just how many of these movies they intend to make lol.
