How About A Trailer?




Why Should I Watch It?

One of my favorite action movies of 2013, Firestorm is just bugnuts crazy.  It's a dozen of your favorite movies rolled up into one. While it's loaded with spectacular heists, fire fights in the streets of Hong Kong, the action is always wrapped around a cat and mouse game between police inspector Lui (Lau) and a ruthless gang of bank robbers led by Cao Nam (Jun Hu).  I'll call it the Hong Kong version of Heat for comparison sake. It has a stronger plot and more interesting characters than at least 90% of the action based films coming out in the States currently. As with many films outside of the US, the CGI is pretty bad, but it really didnt ruin my enjoyment or take me out of the movie at all. The plot does get a bit over complicated at times and it will keep you reading those subtitles at a fast and furious rate, but it's defintely worth the extra work.


Ok, You Sold Me.  Where Can I get It?

This one has been released in the US by Well-Go, so you can find it all over.
