Sometimes the whole turns out to be less than the sum of the parts. This is one of those times. Sahara Riley is a talented writer, Kelley Cauthen is one of the most dependable directors in the business, and the cast is first-rate from top to bottom.
So why is "Surrender" such a two-star disappointment? Part of the problem goes back to the concept: Kira Reed conducts interviews of people who recount their erotic escapades, which are shown as flashbacks. The result is episodic, with little in the way of plot or character development to tie the episodes together.
As eye candy, "Surrender" is an attractive confection. Cauthen knows how to use a camera, and the actors are gorgeous and enthusiastic. There are surely worse ways to spend an hour and a half, or thereabouts. It just seems a shame that, given these resources, more couldn't have been done.
