Several Problems
30 January 2019 | by Tulki-gubbardSee all my reviews

Watched this on Asian Crush and it kept me watching, but I am not even sure why. I guess the pretty thin chicks were eye candy, but they never flaunted or anything. Even on the beach the one chick is fully dressed. I mean seriously. Taliban or what??

Aside from that the film went nowhere. What gives? What was the story? Conclusion? Not much I guess.

The subtitles were problematic too. It says "loose" when they mean "lose" and so forth.

Four stars for the thin chicks and teasing me. Nothing else really.
