don't bother with this movie, 6 June 2005
Author: joaquinortiz2004 from United States

If you look at the box art and read the description this movie sounds like a Japanese "Barbarella" with sex scenes. Instead what you get is a silly porn masquerading as art. The problem is it is not good enough to be great porn or great art. The sex scenes are lifeless and forced, even for porn standards. And the qualities that should make it rise above porn status are lacking. The "high tech" graphics are cheesy, desktop animated, three- dimensional renders over live action video. Even in 2000 the look of these graphics is outdated and poor. The anything that would give it a story is non-existent, meaning you get an hour and a half of lame sex scenes, but nothing to connect them to some plot or story like the box suggests. In the end you are left wondering why watched it when there are many other actual science fiction movies, or actual porn movies for that matter, that actually achieve their intended goal. This just falls short of both!
