Well, now Elle Rio knows what's it's like to get kidnapped. Having been an accessory to a body heist in last year's sexvid, Two To Tango, she now finds the tables reversed as she's bound and gagged and currently residing in a hammock on the island of Orgasmia. And Buddy Love, a bag guy, for the "family" better get her back. At least that's the rationale behind this video feature.
Love seems to be having a little dilemma in this whole matter. We know he's had the hots for her in the past (via flashback), but he just doesn't really seem to be into the rescue attempt which comes about in a ridiculous guns for cocaine swap with the inscrutable Yamatora (Nick Random). As an Oriental, Random looks as silly as Joseph Wiseman in Dr. No.
Other than that, Pacific Intrigue us chock full of derring-do sexual photography, particularly the inventive scenes between Love and Viper, a sex assassin for Madam Wong (Tantala Ray) who's in cahoots with Random. Love is all too eager to be waylaid in similar tempestuous episodes with Breezy Lane and Keisha before he finally gets around to Rio. And when he does, it's almost so what.
There's a lot of clever camera angles here, as well as tropic isles torridness. But unfortunately for Sheri St. Clair, an all too brief stint as Yamatora's secretary. St. Glair's performance would have been enough justification to leave Rio in her hammock if I were in Love's shoes.
