Synopsis
Liu Yue Ping (Chrissie Chau) reports to the ICAC about a rich 2G Cao Yuen Yuen (Raymond Lam) who bribed officers of the Hong Kong Correctional Services (HKCS) from inside the prison. William Luk (Louis Koo) decides to infiltrate the prison as an inmate to conduct his investigation, while his partner Ching Tak Ming (Kevin Cheng) and Chief Inspector Lau Po Keung (Julian Cheung) back him up from the outside.

Danger springs from all directions inside the prison. A fellow inmate, ex-Superintendent of Police Wong Man Ban (Lam Ka Tung) is anxious to even the score with William Luk for putting him behind bars 5 years ago. The Superintendent of the prison, Sham Kwok Keung (Patrick Tam) is on the take from Cao Yuen Yuen and turns a blind eye to the constant gang fights, one of which landed William Luk in a custodian ward. With the help of a slick cell mate Wong Lam Luk (Louis Cheung), William Luk is determined to complete his mission…

Sequel to 2018's L Storm, also the fourth film in the series, P Storm continues its story with Louis Koo (古天乐) starring as Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) agent William Luk. This time, he goes on an unprecedented undercover mission in the prison. He is determined to identify the black sheep of the Hong Kong Correctional Services (HKCS), who accepted bribes from prisoner Cao Yuen Yuen, a wealthy second-gen portrayed by Raymond Lam (林峯).

The Good
The cast of P Storm is probably a good enough reason for you to catch the movie. With Louis Koo as protagonist and Raymond Lam as antagonist, they are joined with Kevin Cheng (郑嘉颖) as Luk's ICAC partner, Patrick Tam (谭耀文) as the prison's corrupted superintendent, and special appearance from Julian Cheung (张智霖) as Joint Financial Intelligence Unit (JFIU) officer, a friend of Luk's. Gordon Lam (林家栋) also reprised his role from 2014's Z Storm as ex-superintendent Wong Man Ban, who was put in prison by Luk.

The storyline is typical of undercover missions but made entertaining with Luk's fellow cell mate Wong Lam Luk, portrayed by Louis Cheung (张继聪). His comical antics added a fair bit of humour to the show, such as his theory on why youngsters should aim to go to jail. Ridiculously yet undeniably, it makes sense as the prison provides you a roof over your head, food to eat and even medical attention for free - it is quite a sum you can save on!

The (Not That) Bad
Rated at PG13 with Some Violence, P Storm is a suitable movie for some family time. That being said, while the action scenes are not bad, it still feels like some scenes lack the punch, such as the one with the cockroaches. Some parts of the story are also not properly explained, especially with the escape scenes.

And The Summary
Action crime thriller P Storm continues to take the big screen by storm, as expected of Hong Kong's police-related shows. Be sure to catch various famous Hong Kong actors in the movie, including the lead actors Louis Koo and Raymond Lam!
