Yeah, right, Shirley Temple versus Godzilla.
4 July 2010 | by See all my reviews

Oh, a film that had so much promise.

It had Nancy Allen from Robocop, and Gina Gershon from Bound, and it was about sex slavery.

Unfortunately, it was the second film directed by Mark Sobel, and his inexperience showed. He should have stuck with TV episodes. The writer who penned the screenplay was a newbie too, as he only wrote one other screenplay. Maybe he shot himself after writing this.

For a film about sex slavery, the only nudity is shots of Gina Gershon and Lotis Key going skinny dipping after they escape, and before they agree to go back to get Nancy Allen's daughter.

Ted Shackelford ("Knots Landing") provides the beefcake, and Allen does end up in bed with him.

Oh, it does have a lot of gunfire and numerous Filipinos die, but there was more action going on at my neighbors as it was the 4th of July.
