Mildly amusing eroticism, but ultimately too strange for casual viewing
5 July 2015 | by (Indonesia) – See all my reviews

Honestly, I thought this was some sort of detective thriller or maybe horror movie. The fact that it's softcore with S&M theme was a bit shocking. It does have some crime aspect, although it's far too flimsy and lacking depth. Audience might find some comedy through its corny delivery, though the movie is one strange experience, it's really not that enjoyable or even approachable.

Story follows a few women's perspective, each has tie to a dubious porn site. The main plot is a female officer's effort to bring this site down, while a couple of other subplots are shoehorned for promiscuous scenes. In fact, one of them is practically a housewife doing exhibitionism. Investing considerably portion of movie for outdoor exhibitionist is one of many examples of its oddity.

Pacing is usually hampered with several nudity or downright dominant play. For what it's worth, a couple of the scenes do have sensual tone as the production has clear idea how to present these. However, the silly antics, excessive gore and borderline porn content are not for mass consumption.

There might be a niche for this kind or movie, for obvious reasons, but casual viewers might find this too bizarre to be entertaining.
