Congratulations to Kirdy Stevens for concocting a futuristic world we can really believe. Although many ideas in this movie are parallels to Hollywood sci-fi flicks (Logan’s Run, Star Wars, The Terminator, etc.), Stevens has brought them together nicely and added plenty of juicy sex. Sometimes the special effects make it hard to hear what’s being said, but you’ll know what’s happening when you see it.
Supposedly picking up where Cabaret Sex left off, Greg Derek and Krista Lane are two fugitives who have stolen some device with which they can leave sexually oppressed earth. But the System wants it back – at any cost- and captures Derek. They interrogate him, drug him, give him sexual favors, but he still wont’ tell where Lane is (that’s love). Needles to say they reunite and beat the system this time, but Stevens leaves it hanging for a possible third part.
Sexually things sizzle right from the start, with Lane and Derek in a very romantic romp. And look out when Elle Rio is kidnapped and seduced by two robo-troopers. She’s one hot lady, who believes the birds in each hand belong in other places as well. Kevin James and Tish Ambrose also smoke in a chocolate-dildo-assisted number. And there’s even a bi-sexual encounter at the very end with Bunny Bleu as a mermaid seducing two sailors. But what hurts hits, as well as some of the other sex scenes, is that they are in no way connected to the story.There’s an “action-packed” ending with lasers, death and destruction, but there are too many loose ends. Technically Stevens captures all the futuristic action in fine style, but he uses too much duplicate footage through the tape. As a whole, Empire of Sins is an ambitious undertaking. There are just a few things missing that keep it from being a classic. Unique packaging.
