Sex and Curse

Summary: Very mixed bag

First, the good news. The first thirty minutes of this movie is fun. The whole of the movie features over a dozen young women getting full frontal naked. There are acres of bare flesh and sex scenes aplenty. The credited cast are pretty good too. And any film featuring Ho Ka Kui as a super-baddie has to be given some credit.

If that's what you want out of a Cat III skinflick, you'll enjoy this one at least a bit. Unfortunately, this one suffers the sort of script silliness which is all too common in Cat III HK films. The plot keeps changing for no apparent reason and appears to have been written during shooting. The only guiding principle appears to be : when the story needs to change or take a rest, add a new naked girl or two. Not a bad principle, I must say, but it really gets out of hand in SAC.

There's some gross stuff as well. I nearly threw up during Ken Tong's early raw-egg drinking scene. He consumes a dozen eggs in a couple of minutes. Yuk !

Some truly wild stuff, too. In one scene, a snake comes out of Charlie's fly. And, in this case, it's not a trouser snake, but a real one !

Overall, this film is like a bunch of great ingredients poorly combined and undercooked. And the ending is a real letdown.
