A Gem for B-Movie Lovers
3 October 2006 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie because its description reminded me of Russ Meyers "Black Snake", which is one of my favorites.

Master of Dragonard Hill can't cope with Black Snake, but its an entertaining B-movie though.

The first half of this movie is full of great antics and perfectly serves the cliché of the bad governor of a Caribbean island. Lots of explicit scenes too.

In particular, I liked the character of the self-appointed whore who seemed to have turned her hobby into a profession.

The second half was a bit flattened, but there was already enough tension built up to keep you enchained.

I were a bit disappointed that the bad governor wasn't lynched in the end. I think he'd deserved it.

My vote 7 out of 10 is for being an entertaining B-Movie and valid only if you give good B-movies extra credit.
