“It’s a full-on cinematic spectacle!”

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

 

“The action in The White Storm is top drawer, and ties in brilliantly with Chan’s exceptional use of space and location. From the bustling streets and dilapidated apartment buildings of Mong Kok, to the tropical wilderness of rural Thailand, Chan puts his audience right in the thick of the danger, and then lets rip with a hail of gunfire and a dozen tossed grenades.”

TWITCH

 

“This enjoyable shoot-’em-up offers a rousing vehicle for action helmer Benny Chan’s talents.”
