No shirt, no shoes, no plot, no way!
18 September 2005 | by Bond7574See all my reviews

There was no reason on this green earth to have spent so much money ($8,000) and time (Just see the 3 hours of bonus features) to make a really bad movie. What was Alex Ferrari (Director)and Jorge F. Rodriguez (Producer) thinking? I guess something along the lines of getting their ethnic (but cute) looking lead actress (Samantha Jane Polay)strapped to a chair. My favorite part of watching this DVD is when the filmmakers to the surprise of everyone announce that all the actors on screen that they had treated as extras from a bad Matrix ripoff actually had character names (Marquez), as if the poor actors in this film needed to be singled out further. Let's see what else can I single out. Oh, the usual; bad acting, bad sound, it looked like it was shot on VHS, bad direction...wait now it's just getting too easy. I'll stop cause I'm falling asleep just thinking of that thing they call, "Something that Quentin Tarantino might have done on his day off." Please.
