In 1984 Cecil Howard directed the masterpiece Firestorm. This was followed by Firestorm II in 1987. Now we have another installment in the complex epic concerning a blackmailing writer (Eric Edwards) who always seems to get his way. Firestorm 3 is one of those unique adult films which can be legitimately viewed on several different levels – both as a sex tape and as an entertaining film. When viewed as a contemporary drama, it holds up extremely well, as we learn that a private detective has been hired to recover the money Eric Edwards has swindled from others. But the smooth operating Edwards soon turns him into his partner.
Taken on a deeper level, director Cecil Howard poses the intriguing question: do our sexual encounters control our everyday lives or are we strong enough to effectively handle our sexual situations so they positively influence our life? Howard clearly shows some people are able to completely control their lives while others are merely slaves in both worlds!
Most of the sex scenes are short and jam-packed with emotion – every kind of emotion from the deepest anger to the most sensitive love. Especially hot are the scenes with John Leslie, Ali Moore, Eric Edwards and Nina Hartley.
Firestorm 3 wraps up an epic trilogy in adult film making that must be seen in its entirety.
