the amazing Naomi Tani, 25 October 2013
Author: christopher-underwood from United Kingdom

This features the amazing Naomi Tani, so seems unlikely to disappoint but however beautifully this is shot there does seem something missing. Or maybe its a personal thing, such films as the Flower and Snake series, Wife To Be Sacrificed, Woods Are Wet and Star of David: Beautiful Girl Hunter are difficult enough with all the nakedness combined with extreme bondage and violence but the military background to this seems to take off some of the shine. Ms Tani looks so very good and apparently enjoyed her bondage scenes but where the perpetrator is some deranged obsessive rather than some torture mad military man, I find all this easier. Also this seems to have a more soft core sex agenda than most of this genre and again this sits a little uneasy with the ever present gun toting militia. That aside the film is very watchable and even makes a break for the outside towards the end before a surprising and gory ending.
