Standard straight-to-video erotic / courtroom thriller
31 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

High-profile lawyer falls for her client, a suspect in a kinky murder case, but is he innocent or guilty? Could she be in danger of becoming the next victim or is it all a conspiracy? As you can see, "Forbidden Sins" is the umpteenth variation on the familiar "Jagged Edge" / "Body Of Evidence" formula and unfortunately this film is not made with enough energy or style to set itself apart from the pack, though it must be said that it is more explicit than most mainstream releases in this genre. Shannon Tweed herself has only one sex scene, but the woman is still in such fantastic shape that I'll push the rating of the film to a probably undeserved ** just for her.
