Visually strong but ultimately dull public rape spectacle

This fourth installment in the Subway Serial Rape series--"Lover Hunting"--is my second look at the series. The original film was not very interesting to me and neither was this one. The rape scenes in this one are edited better and have more visual panache but from what I've seen this film lacks something to make it stand out.

Lover Hunting deals with another rape on the subway where no passengers do anything to stop the rape from happening. In this one, a guy even starts taking pictures while the rape is happening. Later a journalist's "sting" operation is set up to sensationalize a set-up rape incident. This outing seemed to close to the original story (which was not terribly enthralling to begin with)--it was enough of a similarity that I don't care to shell out any more cash for volumes 2 and 3 which I have seen for sale. The Subway Rape series, in my opinion, is for completists only. I give this one a 6/10.
