"In "Sunstorm", the famously bodacious Bo Derek- who is now stretched,literally, as an actress- stars as an international criminal mastermind. She is the brains behind the decision to assassinate The General (Stacy Keach) The General's trio of glamorous daughters go on a globe-trotting adventure to avenge his death,as well as rescue an annoying little girl. There are explosions and fistfights aplenty. The trio of babes are bargain basement Charlie's Angels. They fight! They were bikinis and fancy dresses during fight scenes! They get conveniently rescued by the Hunky Guy! "Sunstorm" even has a paunchy lead who appears to be Mitchell's clone. Could he possible be Joe Don Baker's love child?
"Sunstorm" has international intrigue,a passel of bikini-clad babes,a Pakistani villain, explosions, tons of $$$,Bo Derek herself-- and a really non sequitur ending. It ends with a hot couple running down a beach to the sound of Brazilian drums. We'll always have Rio de Janeiro..."

"Hot chicks who can't act in a movie by screenwriters who can't write. But San Juan looks great.
The real actors seem to do a lot of sitting around and talking. The non-actors do all the moving around and stuff. The story is convoluted.
I seem to recall a series of films by someone named Andy Sedaris or something. MALIBU EXPRESS, etc. They starred Playboy Playmates who always took a break from some ridiculous spy story to take showers or lay out naked by swimming pools or something without clothes on. They were lame and badly-produced but guys watched them because they provided some visual stimulation.
SUNSTORM feels like one of those movies...and they forgot the visual stimulation, if ya know what I mean. Even the scenes inside a strip club in this movie are as chaste as any "Charlie's Angels" episode from the 1970s.
It really doesn't rise any higher than that."
