The look, feel, and overall direction of the film plays out like some soft-core porn they feature on Skinimax after dark, where you’d except to see tons of nudity and ridiculous sex scene after ridiculous sex scene (without the money shots, of course), with a silly plot to string one event of passion with the next to make some sort of convoluted storyline that makes sense. And in a way, that’s exactly what BAD GIRL ISLAND is…. except that there’s not an ounce of nudity to be found! Sex? Sure! Nudity? Besides some male buttcheeck here and there, there’s nothing but strategically placed arms, furniture, and clothing to keep from seeing any sort of action. But as the erotic angle is the only thing BAD GIRL ISLAND has going for it, not delivering the goods was a huge mistake!
What makes matters worse is that the flick becomes one of those “films within a film” type of movies, where they’re making a movie version of events that took place at the beginning of the flick—which means, we have to sit through all sorts of silly bullsh*t twice! And as hard as it is to believe, considering how bad the first part of this movie is, the “film within a film” version is even worse! The script is all over the place, the “mystery” that kicks in is a little hard to follow and becomes way too complicated for its own good.
Last but not least, the acting. Antonio Sabato Jr. gives a performance that’s not just bad, but so bad that it makes most Asylum movie actors look good. It’s a wonder how this guy has been in the game for 20 years… his performance was like nails on the chalkboard. Then there’s James Brolin, who basically shows up to do his best James Brolin impression, all the while collecting a paycheck while filming on location in the Bahamas. Can’t fault the guy for wanting to take a working vacation! The only cast member who didn’t completely suck balls was hottie AnnaLynne McCcord, who played the mysterious seductress to a T, teasing the audience with enough erotic tension without giving up the goods, leaving any red-blooded man with a serious case of blueballs by the end. But sadly, her extreme sexiness couldn’t save the rest of the film from floundering, as every other person in this movie (from secondary characters to extras) was utterly horrendous.
Audio: Luxuriously mixed in 2.0 Mono, the sound is flat and about what you'd expect from a TV production. The sound's not crappy or anything, but anything released in 2.0 Mono has me scratching my head as to why?
