Smarter and more ambitious than a lot of these 'erotic' thrillers, but still not very good.
15 April 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A detective on disability pension is hired to investigate the death of a philanthropist whose heart attack may not have been entirely natural. His widow and former mistress seem eager to co-operate, even a little too eager, and the P.I. is slowly drawn into a web of sex and deceit, familiar territory for this sort of exercise. The difference here is that the mystery plot-line actually works fairly well and follows its own narrative logic to a reasonable conclusion.

The movie also has a pretty posh look, and typically for the genre, tons of eye candy in the form of models in bikinis lounging around the agency pool. Yow! Unfortunately, the acting, scripting and pacing are about par for this type of movie - i.e. terrible - and long stretches of it can be a chore to sit through. The end came as something of a relief, not a positive comment on a movie only 85 minutes long.

Fans of Son of the Beach should note that Forbidden Games features Amy Weber's only nude screen appearance to date, and that alone may give one the impulse to rent it. Try to suppress the urge.
