Sex & Zen III (1998)
Reviewed by: Trigger on 2001-05-30
Summary: Amusing yet sad...
If you are seeing this for the porn, then I don't know what to say to you... If you're seeing this because you wanted a good story, then I can help you. I assume you've seen the first one (which is the one to see) already and you liked it enough to seek out info on the sequels. Well this film has 3 girls who were sold to a whorehouse and taught how to please men... their first day on the job one falls in love and eventually wants to leave with her new lover who can't afford to buy her out. I don't really want to go into it more than that, but the story plays out like a typical HK tragedy where the evil ones get their come-uppance and the good ones don't quite get to ride off into the sunset... Joyful sorrow and blissful sadness... :)

I found the acting to be top quality with many respected HK actors - not like some US porno. The story had plenty of places to laugh although not quite as funny as the first film. It was still worth a rental at least and worth a purchase if you are a huge fan of this type of film or else just some sort of completeist. This one did have alot of random sex in it compared to the first one in which most of the sex was to push the story along. Despite this, the story got pushed along just fine and it was entertaining and funny and a bit tragic. :)
