1970's action flick with plenty of nudity
28 May 1999 | by (Florida, USA) – See all my reviews

Ever see a tv show where the Evil Guys have kidnapped a beautiful woman and are holding her hostage until the Good Guys can come along and rescue her? Well, I don't know about you, but if I was an Evil Guy and had a beautiful woman tied up, I sure wouldn't leave her fully clothed. And in this film, the Evil Guys think like I do, but they take it to the next logical step - white slavery.

The film starts with a blonde woman, her arms tied behind her back, being led down a hallway wearing only her panties and then thrown in a small room. In the next scene, 3 young women (supposedly cheerleaders) are driving along in a convertible Cadillac when the Evil Guys blow out the Cadillac's tires with a shotgun. When the girls stop, the Evil Guys grab them and tell them to strip down to their panties. While the girls are undressing, one of the Evil Guys throws the discarded clothing into the car, douses the car with gasoline and sets it afire.

The girls are then taken to the Evil Guy's hideout, where the chief Evil Guy tells them that they are going to become sex slaves, and tells them that to show their acquiescence they must remove their panties. To persuade the girls, the chief Evil Guy pulls back a curtain to reveal the blonde woman suspended like a hammock, squirming against her bonds wearing only her panties. The girls quickly decide to surrender (keep in mind that in the 1970's, just showing a nude woman in bondage was pretty racy. Nowadays, where tattoos and body piercing is a form of fashion, the girls would probably say "me next!").

Ginger is a private investigator who is hired to find the missing women. After examining the burned out wreck of the car and doing some mild investigation, she determines that the girls have been kidnapped and used for sex slaves, so she hires a model to act as bait. Naturally, the model gets kidnapped and Ginger uses herself as bait, whereup she is promptly kidnapped, too. Back at the lair, both the model and Ginger are tied up and interrogated by the Evil Guys. Ginger is taken to a separate room while the model is stripped and fondled to get her to reveal information (apparently, arousing a woman is sufficient to get her to spill the beans). In the private room, Ginger is getting a treatment of her own. Fortunately, Ginger and the model had swallowed little disks which enable the Good Guys to track them down and rescue them.

This is a good example of a bondage/adventure/action film. The first film of the series ("Ginger") is not as good as this one. The third film of the series ("Girls Are For Loving"), has more airplanes and speedboats, but the gratuitous nudity doesn't really kick in until that last 30 minutes of the film. "The Abductors" starts with a bang and finishes with a bang, the way a good film should.
